Changes to the Kitchen and Bathroom to Add Value to Your Property in Edinburgh
There are many ways through which you can add value to your home. You just need to change a few things and your house will have a completely new look.
Kitchen is the heart of the home and central to the modern life. This is the most social room in the entire house. Everyone join in here to eat, drink, relax and cook. Whenever you are selling a home or purchasing a new one, this is the key room which either makes a deal or breaks a deal. An impressive kitchen is always a sign of a nice house. Hence, if you are thinking of renovating a room in your house, then it should be the kitchen. According to many estate agents, investing in your kitchen, adds 5% or more value to you property.
Importantly, if you don’t want to install a completely new kitchen then there are a few tips which can give your kitchen a brand new look.
You can always have new flooring. Instead of going for the usual wood or tiles, go for a stylish laminate floor. They can give an easy fresh look. This kind of floors is cheap, quick and easy to update. You can also replace the dull work surfaces. This will instantly give your kitchen a new and a brighter look. You have the options of stainless steel, wood, granite and laminate. Moreover, giving your kitchen a fresh paint or just painting a single wall will liven up the place. Replacing unit doors, changing their knobs or just simply painting them will give your kitchen a new look.
Adding a little class to your bathroom will also add about 10% value to your property. As this is the first room you go to in the morning and last room at night. Replacing the old taps or installing a new basin will update the look of your kitchen. There is no need to replace the loo or bath if they are in a decent condition. Re-tiling is also an option but this will be expensive. You can also get a large showerhead installed. This is very impressive and indulgent. Having two sinks, His & Her, adds luxury to the bathroom and also a heated towel rail. Flooring the bathroom is also a good option with so many choices in the market now. Moreover, replacing a shower curtain with a glass door can also instantly add new life to the bathroom.
