Tips for increasing the value of your home

By Andrew Bell

Adding value to your Surfers Paradise property could be easier than you think. There are a number of reasons why you might want to consider doing this. For example, if you’re interested in selling your home, ensuring you can squeeze every drop of value from your old property is a great way to help you get ahead financially. Or perhaps you want to increase the value of an investment property, in order to maximise your profits?

Or maybe you simply want to live in a more elaborate property, for a sense of satisfaction and grandeur. Regardless of your motivations, there are a wide range of potential avenues to consider pursuing to achieve these goals. Here are some great ways to aid the growth of your property value and help you achieve the best possible return on your real estate in Surfers Paradise.

Refreshing the paint 

It’s a simple tip, but nothing revitalises a home like a new lick of paint. This might seem like an obvious thing to consider, but take into consideration just how many options you have and – when coupled with your motivations for growing the value – offer a number of different factors to consider.

For example, if you’re looking to make the home into your own personal pride-and-joy, more radical moves can be considered. Things like favourite colours and feature walls become very real possibilities.

However, if you’re looking into selling the property in the near future, it’s better to stick with more conventional paint colours. Working with beiges, browns, whites and greys throughout the home will give your property that feeling of modernity that many are looking for these days.

Don’t tread on me

Another avenue to consider is updating your flooring. One of the more popular options being adopted across the nation nowadays is stripping off the carpet in favour of natural, hardwood floors. There are a number of benefits to this – the most obvious being the beauty of wood patterns throughout your home.

These floors are also great for those with pets or children, due to how easy they are to clean. Rather than needing to worry about stain removal, simply wiping up mess is a lot easier when it’s a hard surface. On the other hand, if you’re not interested in ripping up the carpet or replacing your current floor, looking into getting a professional carpet clean can help to give your flooring a new lease on life.

Kitchen rejuvenation 

Because you spend so much time in the kitchen throughout your life, it makes sense to create a nice environment to be in. If your kitchen is beginning to look a little old and tired, here are some tips to help change that and inject a new sense of purpose into one of the most important rooms in your home.

For example, cupboards often get the brunt of life’s force thrust upon them. Small things like replacing the doors – or even just the handles – can help make the the kitchen more stylish. Try replacing your fixtures with some decor that you’ve always wanted in your home – whether that be new age and clean or older, more rustic and antique options.

Another thing to consider could be replacing your kitchen bench top. While this can be an expensive undertaking, selecting the right option can help tie your whole home together, creating a sense of cohesion throughout the space. Natural stone like marble is always a popular choice, while investigating a wood option can help create a Scandinavian feeling within your home.
