There are so many different ways to add value to your home. From doing a little sprucing up on the outside to expensive renovation projects and landscape gardening, it can sometimes be a little bit daunting wondering where to start, especially if you’re thinking of selling up soon. Here are some tips to help you get started:

Concentrate on the Kitchen

A fully functioning spacious kitchen with all the essentials in good condition is a great asset to your home. If you don’t have the money or the resources to do a full renovation, making sure you make the most of the space and resources you have to make it look as desirable as possible is essential. Spend some time rearranging the furniture to create the allusion of space and move any appliances that make the work surfaces look small.

Work on the garden

A good cheap way to instantly add value to your home is by getting green fingers and spending some time working on the garden. A garden which looks neat and easy to maintain is always a bonus and adds value to your home. Making sure that your garden is also secure is a great advantage, especially to those who have pets or young children. Buying a new fence or suitable hedges and bushes should do the trick and not be too costly.

Use Knowledge Economy Services

Speak to a commercial property advisor like GVA who can help to advise you on the best way to add value to your home. This is often the best option if you’re unsure where to start as the experts understand the requirements and challenges faced by home owners looking to add value and can predict trends which will add value to your home in the long term if you’re not looking to sell up immediately.


If you’re looking to move quickly and want to add value you to your home in in immediate future, a lick of paint can go a long way. Touches like repainting the walls a fresh colour like white or magnolia always helps to add value and ensuring the skirting boards and glossing over the doors, radiators and window sills instantly makes a room look brighter. Creating the illusion of space makes for a more valuable home so dark colours are generally a no no
