Testimonials

"I am very pleased with the work that team at LondonDeco did for me. I bought a new flat and needed work done to a very tight deadline before I moved in. They reacted very quickly and worked very hard and late at night to ensure that the deadlines were met. The quality of the work they did was excellent and they left the place clean and tidy after them. They also added some nice additional touches to the place which I was very happy with. The painters and decorators from LondonDeco were helpful and very professional to deal with and the costs of the job were transparent and clear. I would definitely use them again and would recommend them to friends."

How to Increase the Value of Your Home

December 8, 2013 · by LondonDeco

There are many ways to improve your home and enhance its resale value, but some improvements are more profitable than others. Some projects such as a remodelled kitchen, or a second-floor addition can lead to great returns on investment. We have listed here number of different ways to increase the value of your home.

  Extensions

Extending your property is an ambitious and expensive project but it could increase the value of your home considerably. Make sure your extension matches the architectural style of the existing house and that the extension will add functional living space. There are important planning restrictions and regulations which need to be followed.

  Conservatory

Conservatories can be a quick, cheap way to boost your home's appeal, and generally you don't need planning permission to build. Before you fork out for an extension, consider whether you can increase the space and potential of your property by changing the internal layout instead.

  Adding Extra Rooms

Sometimes it maybe possible to split one of the larger rooms into smaller rooms or convert some other areas into bedrooms. It's wise to consider the proportions of your home and avoid cramming in additional bedrooms unnecessarily. It is also wise to look at house prices in your area to gauge how much value another bedroom will add in order not to overdevelop.

  Converting the Loft

Loft conversions are good way of enlarging your house. Most lofts with a roof height of at least 2.4 metres are suitable for conversion but Victorian houses especially are ideal for these because of their high roof pitches. A loft room will also require less planning and building requirements than a bedroom.

  Building Attractive Garden

An attractive garden has been proven to add value to a property. An arbour or arch is one way to provide vertical growing space and add bucket loads of character at the same time. Growing up and down offers small space gardeners so many benefits. With some simple design ideas and vertical structures compact areas can become productive, beautiful features.

  Redecorating Rooms

If there isn't a reason to expand, consider giving the house a makeover. Partitioning walls can be knocked down or put up, and bigger windows can make a house appear more spacious. A new kitchen, bathroom and carpets will revive the the property and increase its value at the same time. Carpeting can quickly update a home and make it look cleaner.

  Installing New Bathroom or Kitchen

Many people consider kitchen and bathroom to be the key rooms in a home. For a few hundred pounds, you can replace the faucet sets, add new door handles and update old lighting fixtures with brighter, more energy-efficient ones. If you've got a slightly larger budget, you can give the cabinets themselves a makeover. Next to the kitchen, bathrooms are often the most important rooms to update. Even simple things like a new toilet seat and a pedestal sink are pretty easy for home-owners to install, and they make a big difference in the look of the bath. Consider re-grouting the tile and replacing any chipped tiles. A more complete cover-up is a prefabricated tub and shower surround.

  Fitting Central Heating

Central heating and a modern boiler are a safe bet when improving a house. Investment in a new high-efficiency boiler is worth considering as this will reduce your heating bills and attract 'green' buyers.
