Adding value to your home is a wise investment. Whether you are looking to sell now, or simply live a more luxurious life, while ensuring that your home stays modern way into the future, your home may be the best investment of your life. Luckily there are various ways you can make your home look more expensive and give it that curb appeal you are after. Some of the upgrades are pretty easy DIY upgrades. Others are a little more lavish and require a decent budget. But, property is only rising in value, and creating something that is even more appealing is a great motivator.

The Heating System

The heating system is one of the most important aspects of a home, and pretty much all potential purchases will look at it. If your heating system is no longer in its prime, it may be worth your while investing in a new one. A new system will come with warranties and will be more efficient. So, even if you are not looking to sell right now, it will serve you as your heating will be less expensive to run, and you are far less likely to need an expensive call out in the midst of winter. 

A Loft Conversion 

Creating another room out of your loft is a great way to add value. It is much less expensive than an extension and can give one, two, or more excellent-sized rooms, depending on the shape and size of your loft. You can add roof lights or dormer windows to get that all-important light. Additionally, it will open up the space downstairs and make it brighter too.   


Paneling is a great way to give a room a little extra oomph. It may work especially well in a dining room when you want the walls to appear more regal. It will definitely help you wow your guests. Paneling also works very well in rooms that are multifunctional, say a living room diner. By upgrading the wall on the dining room side, giving them perhaps a rustic look, and mixing this with alternative lighting, you are able to create a clear divide. Not only does this give the illusion of more space, but it almost gives the impression that they are two separate rooms. 

The Garden

An attractive front and back garden is always a selling point on any property. When it comes to gardens, it is not necessarily how much space you have but what you have done with the space you have. A Landscape Design company can definitely help you make the most of your garden. But generally speaking, luscious grass, flowers, a few garden ornaments, and mood lighting can go a long way. A great way to optimize lighting in your garden would be to hire lighting professionals to light up your garden in the way you want. If you have a particularly small garden, you may need to be a little more creative. If you are surrounded by walls, say in the city, why not paint the walls, or even have a mural decorated on one. Also, think vertical gardens, which can really allow you to make the most of flowers. Garden mirrors are also a great shout, giving the illusion of space.
