Whether you’re looking to sell your London home soon or just some time in the future, it’s important to make sure any home renovations you carry out add value and make it a more desirable purchase for potential future buyers.
There are lots of home renovations you could carry out but not all of them will necessarily add value so to give you some ideas, we’ve picked out 5 types of renovation that are definitely worth your while.
1. A new kitchen
A kitchen is often the first thing a buyer will look at replacing so a brand new, stylish, functional kitchen can really increase the desirability of your property. This kind of home improvement could range from a relatively small make over to a kitchen extension or an open plan kitchen-diner space and can add around 6% to the value of your home.
2. An extra bathroom
Whether it’s an en suite, a wet room, a downstairs loo or a full bathroom, an additional bathroom is also a popular way to add value. It has the added benefit of more convenience for busy families and can give some real luxury to a home – as well as a 6% boost in value.
3. A conservatory
A conservatory can be a relatively simple way of adding extra interior space as well as up to 5% value. It can really help add some bright, airy space to your home and can mean a new reception space to allow your family to spread out.
4. A loft conversion
Perfect for adding any manner of rooms from bedrooms to home offices to studios, a loft conversion uses the often wasted space in your roof to provide useable space for you and your family. With a variety of options available, it can also make your home more desirable to future buyers, adding around 20% to the value of your home.
5. A home extension
Adding an extension can add a large amount of value – around 23% – to your home if done well, although there are so many different things you can do with a home extension that this amount can vary. Whether you’re after more space in your kitchen or you want to increase space over two storeys to completely revamp your house, a home extension is a great solution.
