When it comes to homeownership, the desire to add value to your home often coincides with the expectation of a future sale. However, this pursuit doesn’t need to be solely practical. It’s also a chance to re-plan a space that improves your everyday life, offering comfort, functionality and visual appeal, something Wynngate has helped numerous clients achieve.

In this blog, we’ll discuss home improvement with two purposes in mind – to enhance your living experience while strategically increasing your property’s market value. By finding this balance, you’ll create a haven tailored to your desires while also securing a valuable asset for the future. Explore various creative approaches to add value to your home, ensuring every investment brings immediate enjoyment and long-term financial benefits.

Add Value To Your Home With More Levels

If you’re in need of extra space, consider a loft conversion. It’s a relatively straightforward way to increase your home’s square footage. Costs vary, however, the potential returns are significant, with a well-executed loft conversion often boosting your home’s value by 10-20%. This investment not only improves your current living situation but also grants you more space whilst you remain in your property. The adaptability of a loft allows you to tailor it to your specific needs, whether that means a new bedroom, a home office or a recreational area.

Another way to add value to your home is by turning an unused basement into a wine cellar. The naturally cool, dim corners of certain homes provide an ideal setting for wine storage, ensuring wines thrive shielded from direct sunlight in favour of stable temperatures unaffected by daily or seasonal shifts. However, be cautious if your basement houses a boiler, as there is the potential for temperature fluctuations.

For wine enthusiasts, a well-planned wine cellar can significantly boost a property’s inherent worth. A bespoke, climate-controlled cellar seamlessly complements homes tailored for hospitality, boasting spacious, welcoming areas.

Consider An Extension

If a loft or basement conversion isn’t an option for you but you still want to add an extra room or two to your property, then an extension could be a feasible upgrade. Providing you don’t need the extra space for a vital extra bedroom, you could create another type of space such as a dedicated home office or a media room – something to add value to your home whilst making it distinctly different. Just bear in mind with any extension that the new layout needs to make sense for a prospective buyer as well as you and your family, and would most likely require an internal remodelling of some description.

A well-planned extension can make a real difference, making a house more useful and appealing to a wider range of people. This extra versatility is a real bonus for anyone who wants a home that can adapt as their needs change – a blank canvas where you can add a personal touch for more comfort and convenience.
