2. Loft Conversion
Converting your loft is the most popular form of home renovation. It is best to keep costs down by pre-planning e.g. knowing what conversion you’re going for (dormer or roof light). Loft conversions on average increase property value by 20% which shows how much of a benefit they are when it comes to selling your home.
3. New Garden
Creating a new garden is another beneficial way to increase the value of your property. It also enables you to add all kinds of different elements such as:
- A new lawn
- All kinds of plants
- A new patio
Home builders that are renovating your property usually charge upwards of £5,000 depending on what your goal is.
4. New Bathroom
Designing and implementing a new bathroom, whether upstairs or downstairs, is another great way to increase property value. Prices start from £3,000+ but the cost largely comes down to the how grand you would like your new bathroom to look like.
5. Convert your Garage or Shed into a living space
Usually you don’t need planning permission but in some cases you may. Therefore, it is best to check with your local authority. This type of conversion can cost at least £5000 but doing any kind of home renovation is going to be costly.
