Simple ways to add value to your home

Ever wanted to know how to add value to your home? Well, there are plenty of ways to do so. This simple guide will talk you through the small changes you can make to significantly increase your home’s price tag. From updating your glazing to freshening up your garden, these home improvement tasks will help you to add value to your home and get the best results possible.

Add kerb appeal

They say first impressions are everything and this is very true for properties. When visitors come to your front door, they will make an instant decision about it. This means that if you’re thinking about selling your home, you might want to add some kerb appeal. In fact, a 2020 study found that the average house hunter takes just eight minutes to decide if a property is for them or not. Also, six out of ten purchasers won’t buy a property if the condition of the exterior is poor. Add more pizzazz with a new front door, a fresh lick of paint, or a new set of windows.

Upgrade your glazing

As for the inside of your home, think about its light levels. Do you have a dark bathroom? Is your kitchen gloomy? If you want to add value to your home, then ensure there’s plenty of natural light inside. Opt for flat roof windows for modern extensions, or pitched roof windows for loft bedrooms. If your dark rooms can’t accommodate this type of glazing, then consider one of our sun tunnels instead. Sun tunnels can be installed anywhere in the roofline and will draw sunlight inside via a series of mirrors. Genius!


Is your interior décor old-fashioned? Perhaps your bathroom paint is peeling off? Well, then it’s time to give your rooms an upgrade. Whether you choose wallpaper or paint, you’ll be amazed at how different your home will feel after some simple DIY. Remember, if you’re hoping to sell your home in the near future, keep your colour scheme simple so that potential buyers can envision their own furnishings in the space. Another great way to add value to your home by decorating alone, is by adding new blinds or shutters. Replace those old-fashioned or unsightly curtains with sleek and modern options.


When rooms are cluttered and overflowing, your home will feel small and cramped. Therefore, the cheapest and quickest way to add value to your home is by making each room as spacious and clutter-free as possible. Rid your home of junk, find clever storage solutions for essentials and move anything you don’t use regularly into the attic – if you have one!

Improve your garden

According to the home selling experts at Move With Us, a garden or outside space can add 10% to the value of a property. Gardens are even more important after global lockdowns. So, if you’re lucky enough to have an outdoor area, it might be time for a spruce up. Mow your lawn, plant some flowers on your balcony, or consider adding a storage unit for your bins and recycling boxes. Even deweeding your front path will make a massive difference to the overall look of your yard.

Create an extra room

Did you know that converting your garage into an extra living space can add 15% to the value of your home? Especially after lockdown, people are looking for extra space in their homes. Perhaps your garden shed would make a cool playroom. Maybe your loft could be an additional bedroom. Or would your garage make for a beautiful home office? Consider how you could make the most of every inch of interior space – and remember, adding flat roof windows, pitched roof windows or sun tunnels could vastly improve the natural light levels in these otherwise out-of-the-way corners of your property.
