Whilst selling your home is probably the last thing you’re thinking of now you’ve managed to get on the property ladder, it’s worth considering smart home investments for the future. Here you can learn how to boost your home’s value and of course, make your house a pleasant place to live in.
Renew the Kitchen
Chances are, you’ll want to change the kitchen anyway. Why? Well, when you move into a new home, you want to make it your own and put your stamp on it. And not only that, you’re unlikely to have similar tastes to the previous owner, even if you have bought the same house! So, say hello to a kitchen update.
The kitchen is often thought of as the heart of the home so it’s a good idea to invest in this room. However, don’t go overboard. You can expect to recoup 60%-120% of your investment on a new kitchen, but if it’s fancier than the rest of the home, potential buyers will resent paying for a flashy kitchen and will be less tempted to make an offer.
Can’t afford to remodel your kitchen? Then give it a fresh lick of paint instead. You’d be surprised by how a little paint can go a long way.

Add an Extra Bathroom
This is definitely worth considering. Think of how many times you’ve gone to use the bathroom and have found it already taken. And if you’re trying to get ready for work in the morning, a shared bathroom can quickly turn into a dilemma.
Add another bathroom and you may be able to recoup 80%-130% of your investment, as well as have the luxury of using a bathroom as and when you wish!
There’s nothing worse than ‘queuing’ to use the bathroom in your own home. Plus, in the future, when you put your house on the market, potential buyers will be drawn to the fact that your home flaunts two bathrooms.

Build a Decking Area
Who would have thought that decking could make such a difference? Well, it can. In fact, you can expect to recoup 65%-90% of your investment simply through adding an outdoor deck.
Outdoor living spaces have become increasingly desirable over the years, therefore decking areas are particularly appealing to prospective buyers. If you’d like to add value to your home then be sure to add a deck to your property. Not only will you benefit from this home improvement when it’s time to sell up, you can make the most of your garden now!
Replace Your Front Door
You’ll want to feel safe in your new home and a composite door is your solution to maximising security. Plus, you can choose from an array of colours and styles to suit your personal preference.
If you’re thinking of replacing your door then a composite door is your best bet. Why? Well, not only is it strong and secure but it’s practical and inviting too; it’s basically the perfect door for your home.

Install New Windows
Energy efficiency is a factor that homebuyers take into account during the house viewing process. If a house has old windows, it’s a disadvantage. Why? Well, they know at some point or another, they’ll have to splash out on double glazed windows. And after buying a house, this isn’t always ideal.
Remove old windows and replace them with double glazed windows. You’ll benefit from annual energy savings until you decide to sell up, plus you could recoup roughly 60%-90% of your costs.
