5 improvements that add value to your home

Whether you just want to give your home a fresh makeover, or you want to add extra functionality to your house in order to rent it, making a plan before you start is the best idea. In this matter, it is not wise to rush things because we are talking about home improvements which are not cheap and if they're done impulsively, they might get you more in debt than bring extra value.

But what it is wise to do in this situation? Which are the improvements that bring extra value to the house for sure and those are best to be done first? Well, to help you answer these questions, I've created a list of 5 home improvements that will boost your home's value for sure.

Remodel the kitchen 

This has to be one of the most expensive improvements that you can make to your home. You know what they say, that the kitchen is the soul of the house and it's the place you spend a lot of time, so if you have the budget for it, make a plan, see what needs to be changed and start small. You don't need to get the latest model of appliances, especially if you plan to rent the house after you remodel it. Most of the people don't look for luxury things and they might skip your home because of that.

Change the bathroom 

You wouldn't say, but the bathroom is another important room in the house. Nobody likes an old bathroom with grey tiles, mold stains and rusty utilities. Lighting is also important in the bathroom because it makes the room look bigger. The first thing that you need to do is check if the plumbing is good, then change the utilities and a new shower or bathtub if the budget allows it or if the old ones can't be used anymore.

Brighten up the house

 It's well known that natural light makes a house brighter and spacious, so if you can add large double glazed windows for plenty of natural light. You can also add a conservatory that will add light and extra space to your home. Anything your budget allows you to, in order to bring in some sunshine and earnings.

 Home insulation 

Insulating your home is a great idea because you can be sure you won't have any problems with the warmth in your house anymore. If your budget is kind of tight, you can also insulate the attic, it's pretty easy to do it by yourself, so you can also save a lot of money on that.

Appearance is important 

Even if you're not trying to sell or rent your home, it is still important to take care of its looks. Fix the small cracks from the walls, if you have them of course, give them a little paint and take care of the front garden. It's the small details that make a difference and it's important that people say your house is a well taken care of home when they pass by.

There are many changes that you can make to a house in order to raise its value and make sure you can rent it for a good price. If you're trying to rent the place, don't forget that after making all these improvements it's very important to protect them and that's why you need to look for landlord insurance.
