Improve The Value Of Your Home17/10/2014
There are many improvements that you can make to your home that can potentially increase its overall value should you decide to relocate elsewhere. Popular choices that people opt for nowadays include full landscaping projects, room conversions Ė such as lofts, garages and basements Ė or giving the house a makeover with some redecorating. Of course, another popular option is to install a conservatory and allow yourself to enjoy your garden before you make that big step and move home.
The added value
Conservatories more often than not pay for themselves on being installed, so if you are planning to sell your home on and relocate you will make your money back. The average conservatory can cost anywhere between £5,000 and £30,000 depending on the size, style and materials used. This is a lot of money and therefore deciding to install a conservatory is not something that should be done lightly. However, once installed, the value of your home is expected to rise by an estimated 7%, allowing you to make your money back.
Make sure it is done right
A mistake that some people make is to haphazardly get any conservatory they like and add it to their homes. While a conservatory can add value to your home, if it doesnít match the style and aesthetic of your property it will only hurt the amount of money that you can make back. Take the time to think over the design of your intended conservatory and try to make it feel like it belongs in your home rather than something that has just been bolted onto the back.
Ideally you want your conservatory to look and feel like it was an original part of the house, so be sure to watch out for the following:
- Size: Donít make your conservatory too big or too small. Choosing the right size will make your conservatory feel like a more natural and organic part of your home.
- Style: There are many different shapes and styles of conservatory. Most will suit any type of home, but donít go for a white conservatory if all the windows in your home are brown Ė you want them to match as best as possible.
- Entrance: Donít make your conservatory seem in any way separate, such as giving it its own separate external entrance. Make sure you can access the conservatory through the rest of your home.
