Three Ways to Add Value to your Home this Year

1.    Loft Conversions   

Loft conversions will continue to be a popular way to add value to your home in 2015, and can add up to 20% to your house value, according to a survey conducted by the Nationwide building society[1].   The reasons behind this value increase are clear when you think about the amount of space your house will be gaining; most lofts will easily accommodate a master bedroom plus en suite or dressing room, or a large games room, home office, playroom, or a combination of a few of these room types.   

If you are going to convert your loft this year, make sure all work is carried out by professional architects and building contractors, as a poorly executed loft conversion could actually devalue your home.   

2. Kitchen Extensions

The kitchen-diner-family room extension continues to be popular this year. If you’re finding it’s becoming a squeeze to work, dine or just generally live in your existing kitchen, this could be the year to do something about it. A well planned extension will almost always add value to your home and as the lifestyle offered by a kitchen-diner is so sought after at the moment, this is a good extension to pick, particularly as the house extension costs will reap far more in resale value.   

3. Adding Bedrooms   

Creating extra space in any home is always a winner, and additional bedrooms are one of the best ways of boosting your home’s value this year. Whether you decide to opt for a loft conversion, a double storey extension or a granny (or teenager) annexe, you won’t regret adding an additional bedroom. Whatever project you decide to undertake this year, make sure you complete it to the best possible standard.
