How to Add the Most Value to Your Home by Improving Your Interiors


If you’re looking to add more value to your house, you’re probably already aware that the best way is to add an extension. That’s also the most expensive way. Thankfully, it’s not the only way. Whether you’re looking to sell your home soon or just add a bit of value to it for your own peace of mind, there are a few tips you can use to spruce up your interiors without breaking the bank. In this article, we’re going to look at them.

1. Wood or tile flooring

While carpets are the most tried and tested way to floor your rooms, they aren’t necessarily the best. If you can get some nice wood panels or even tiles — especially in the main living areas — you could help take your interiors to the next level, and add some value along the way.

Another great way to make your home seem even more attractive to potential buyers is to install under-floor heating.

2. Target the kitchen and bathroom first


While every room might need upgrading in your house, the ones that add the most value — and wow the most visitors — are kitchens and bathrooms. You should do these first, and make sure they’re up to modern spec and standard. To add even more of a wow-factor finish, you can use better quality materials for certain parts of your refurb, like by installing Rockingham Glass to some of your interiors.

3. Install some new lighting

A new lighting system can go a long way towards bringing your home into the 21st century. A few choice spotlights or underlights could give your house that ultra-modern sleek feel. They could also be seen as a security feature. Both of these aspects could help impress visitors and add value to your property if you’re trying to sell it.

4. Convert your garage

If you’ve got a garage that’s filled with junk that you don’t even use, you’re not alone. Loads of people do this, and actually keep their car on the driveway. While you’re not alone, you might be making a big mistake. Converting a garage could be one of the best ways to add extra floor space to your home — and therefore value — without having an external extension.


It’s actually reasonably cheap and easy to convert a garage, as you only have to seal up one end and then decorate. Just make sure you’ve got planning permissions, and you could get yourself an extra downstairs bedroom or additional general living space, adding quite a lot to your house value.

There are loads more ways to add value to your house without building an extension, but these are a good start. You could also consider exterior lighting, a loft conversion, or improvements to the outside of your property, like cladding.
