Innovative Home Additions that can Add Value and Kerb Appeal to your Property

When selling a property, it is vital that you make your home look its very best. Kerb appeal is one of the most important elements in making your house saleable. When you start showing the property, the first impression potential buyers have should be a positive one. This means that your home's exterior should be spotless with any damage or wear and tear fixed.

There are plenty of additions you can make to the home that will improve its value. It is crucial to consider the cost of renovations compared to the increase in value to ensure that it is worthwhile.

1. Replace the windows

If your property's windows have seen better days, getting them replaced may increase both the value and kerb appeal. You could consider replacing your windows with high-quality triple glazed alternatives that will offer greater energy efficiency and be a definite selling point when showing your property.

2. Hire a landscape gardener

Having a beautifully manicured garden is a crucial way to improve kerb appeal. It may help to get in touch with an experienced gardener who can transform your garden into the perfect relaxing oasis. Consider putting in attractive, low maintenance plants and having your lawn professionally manicured before a viewing.

3. Invest in awnings

Awnings can be a versatile and valuable addition to your garden. You can get awnings that are rain-proof, UV protective and motorised to make the most out of your garden, whatever the weather. For more inspiration, take a look at the massive selection of awnings available on

4. Modernise the kitchen

A sleek, modern kitchen can be the perfect way to add value to your home. It is essential to ensure that all paintwork is fresh and replace any appliances or decor that makes the room appear dated. Investing in items like a dishwasher or wine fridge can help add even more value. You could also consider extending the kitchen out to create more space.

5. Add cladding to your home exterior

Cladding can be an excellent way to refresh the look of your property's exterior. It's best to look for cladding that will complement the materials of your home and a colour scheme that is attractive but neutral. Blues, greys and off-white colour schemes can all be ideal for the home exterior.

6. Put in a downstairs bathroom

A house with multiple bathrooms will often sell for more than a house with just one. Adding a downstairs bathroom can be the perfect way to increase the appeal and value of your home. Adding a downstairs extension with a bathroom can be an excellent way to invest in the property.

7. Convert your loft

Converting your loft into another bedroom can be a perfect way to increase value. You will need a loft large enough to comfortably turn into a bedroom, as well as space to add stairs to reach the new space. If your loft isn't large enough to make it into a proper bedroom, you could still convert it and advertise it as a playroom or small home office.
