If you are thinking of renovating and you don’t mind getting amongst it, you can still make those changes and all without blowing the budget! Kitchens, bathrooms and even outdoors – nowhere is off limits!

1. Kitchen and bathroom revamp
Concentrate on adding value to the kitchen and bathroom, as these are rooms that will give you financial rewards come sale day. You can make lots of positive tweaks and changes to a kitchen and bathroom, even on a tight budget. Freshen up your cupboard doors and walls with a coat of paint, replace cupboard door handles with a modern option or consider a splash back refresh!

2. Update your outdoor entertainment space
A space for outdoor entertaining is high on the wish list of many buyers and this can often make or break the sale of a house. If you already have a patio this can easily be converted into an outdoor area with affordable lighting, furniture, space for a BBQ and even the possibility of a fire pit for those cool winter nights.

3. DIY storage solutions
If you’re handy with tools, we’d recommend adding storage space yourself. You can purchase storage flat packs at a reasonable cost. A few smart built-in storage solution ideas are storage at your property’s entrance – a great spot for shoes, keys, umbrellas and so on or a spare unused corner? This is the perfect space to build in a desk to store away your life admin. 

4. Add light where possible
Swap out old or outdated light fixtures for modern lighting to give rooms a lift. Smart lighting systems don’t cost an arm and a leg and, despite simple features, you can still play with different lighting moods, modify brightness and set schedules.

5. Don’t underestimate the power of paint
Lift the mood of any room by applying the perfect coat of paint. If you have darker walls throughout your property, consider painting the walls lighter or white. This can give the illusion of more space, and simply looks fresher.
