Do Home Improvements add Value to your Home, and to what Cost?

With Spring around the corner, it’s that time of year when you start thinking about home improvements. I have already been chatting to my husband about improvements we could make this year. I have always wondered, do they home improvements add value to your home? If so how much would they add? When we moved house last Summer, I spent ages tidying and cleaning up our old house ready for sale. Weekends were spent deweeding and decluttering the garden, but did it add value to our home? If I’m being honest no, but then it was only surface work and what you can see we carried out.

Did you know that data from the Office for National Statistics has predicted that those in the UK collectively spend almost £30 billion on home improvements annually? That works out at £43 million each week.

If you are looking to significantly add value to your house then maybe you need to check out these ideas. DM Design, a bespoke bedroom specialist, has carried out research to discover how much home improvements can add to your home’s value:

Fitting a new Kitchen

Everyone loves a kitchen, it is the focal point of a home. If you take Phil Spencer’s advice from Location, Location, Location he says that a new kitchen will typically add 4.6 percent onto the overall value of a home. He also points out that the kitchen must match the value of the home. For example it’s no good adding an expensive £25k kitchen to a house that’s only worth £175k. To really take your kitchen to a new level why not add some new Essex Worktops. New worktops can transform your kitchen as well as add value to the room.
