You don’t need to break your budget to improve your family’s lifestyle and add value to your home. There are a number of small home improvement solutions that can make a real difference.
Start with small renovations
- Revamp your house’s exteriors
- Add a deck
- Refurbish your verandah
- Replace your roof with an eco-friendly option
- Raise the ceilings
- Open up the floor plan
- Install bigger windows
- Convert underutilised spaces like basements and garages
- Install additional storage space
- Install a walk-in wardrobe
In the grand scheme of things, these may not be major changes but renovations like this could add thousands of dollars to your home’s value, which you’ll really appreciate when it comes time to sell.
If you have more to spend, an extension is a way to go
A great way to add more space to your home is to build a second storey. A second story extension has the potential to double your existing living space without encroaching on any yard areas. This type of extension could increase your home’s value by 30-60%.
You also have the option of extending your ground level. If you have a big block of land, you can add an extra bedroom, create a home theatre, gym or office. The possibilities are endless.
Granny flats are also an excellent option
Have you ever thought about building a self-contained granny flat on your property? You can use it to house elderly relatives or it can be rented out to tenants to raise extra income. It could also be used as a separate home office space. This could add up to $100,000 value to your existing home.
