Room upgrades to increase your home’s value
Most people naturally think of major, expensive projects like a conservatory or an extra bedroom when it comes to increasing the value of their property.
While this will likely increase the value of your home, in some circumstances, repurposing an existing room rather than building a new one can be far more cost-effective.
Incorporate a kitchen island
A kitchen island might be worth its weight in gold if you have the space for one. It will not only provide more seating but also additional storage space for pots, pans, and appliances. You can never have enough cupboard space!
Include an en-suite bathroom
Even though en-suite bathrooms are more common than they used to be, they still have a sense of exclusivity. Even though they are one of the most expensive renovations, they may be a highly valuable investment when it comes to selling your home.
Include a walk-in wardrobe
If you have sufficient space, a walk-in wardrobe is a great way to add value to your main bedroom. It also gives your home a sense of elegance and individuality, which can help it stand out when it’s time to sell.
A loft conversion
This is likely the most expensive option on the list, but it could provide your home with the largest value bump. Repurposing an existing space to make it more useful will certainly increase the value of your home and converting the attic to make an extra room is a great example of this.

One in three properties receive an offer one hour after viewing
