When it comes to home improvements, there’s so much you can do to your property that it can often be challenging indeed to decide where best to focus your attention. But it perhaps makes sense to choose the jobs that will yield you the best return on investment while ensuring that the work enhances your way of life at the same time.
New research from Anglian Home Improvements has just revealed that making your living spaces open plan is the most effective way of adding value to your property, adding £46,503.94 on average once the work has been completed, according to Property Reporter.
If you’ve already done this at home and want to add even more value, what about a loft conversion (£24,254.56 in terms of average added value), an extension (£6,455.57), a new kitchen (£3,508.92) or a conservatory (£3,155.27).
the news source quoted head of digital marketing at Anglian Costas Kariolis as saying: “Open plan living space, add lots of value to a home, other features, such as garage conversions and new bathrooms, are less profitable investments.
“It’s important to keep in mind exactly what people are looking for in a new home. Curb appeal should always be maintained and adding new windows is a great way to impress potential buyers or tenants.”
Interestingly, while these are the improvements that will add the most value it seems that there are many out there who don’t know which jobs will achieve this. When asked, just two per cent said that open plan living spaces would result in the most significant boost to value – so if this is your ultimate objective, always make sure you do your research correctly, or you could be hit with a nasty surprise otherwise.
Homeowners who are keen on creating more open plan living spaces at home can achieve this easily with the use of aluminium bifold doors. These products are perfect for opening up the spaces between the indoors and outdoors and can provide a truly seamless solution if you want to extend your room out into the garden.
The even better news is that bifolding doors can be made tailored and bespoke to your home, manufactured precisely to your design requirements – so also if you have an awkward space, it will be possible to have sets of these doors installed to help you create the house of your dreams.
Bifold door installation also means that you can help to make it feel as though you’ve got even more space at home than you actually do thanks to all the glass, which really serves to open up your room and allow an awful lot more natural light to come flooding in.
