Home improvements that add value to your property

Has that little hint of spring in the air made you decide that now’s the time to increase the value of your property? Whether you're planning to sell or just want to boost your home's appeal, investing in certain home improvements can significantly elevate its worth. From small upgrades to larger renovations, there are various ways to enhance your property's value. Let's have a look at some practical and effective home improvement ideas that can make a real difference.


Curb Appeal Matters: They say first impressions count, and this couldn't be more true when it comes to your property's exterior. Simple tasks like tidying up the garden, painting the front door, and maintaining the driveway can instantly elevate the curb appeal of your home. If your driveway is looking a little weedy, dirty and unloved after the winter, K-Seal from Kingfisher is just what you need! It  protects, enhances colour and inhibits organic growth. You could also consider a fresh lick of paint for your exterior walls. Our Weatherflex masonry coating has been protecting Lakeland homes for years – and it comes in a range of 72 gorgeous colours inspired by our beautiful Cumbrian surroundings.


Kitchen Upgrades: The kitchen is often considered the heart of the home and can significantly influence buyers' decisions. You don't necessarily need a full-scale remodel; small updates like replacing cabinet hardware, updating countertops, or installing modern fixtures can breathe new life into your kitchen and add value to your property.

Bathroom Revamp: Much like the kitchen, bathrooms are key selling points in any property. Consider updating fixtures, replacing old tiles, or adding extra storage space. A clean, modern bathroom can make a big difference in perceived property value.

Mould Prevention and Maintenance: BUT it’s no use having a beautiful bathroom and a charming kitchen… if the dreaded black mould has taken hold! Nothing turns away potential buyers faster than spotting mould in a property. Luckily our dynamic duo of Mould Cure and Thermapaint are all you need to banish the blight from your property for good. Unlike bleach and other conventional cleaners, Mould Cure contains fungicides which target and neutralise mould spores more effectively. Follow it up with Thermapaint – with its anti-mould formula and stunning “Lakes & Fells” pigments, you get proven mould control without compromising on colour or finish.

Landscaping: Don't underestimate the power of a well-maintained garden. Trim hedges, mow the lawn, and add some colorful plants to enhance the outdoor space. A beautifully landscaped garden can significantly increase the perceived value of your property.


Remember, home improvements don't have to break the bank to add value to your property. By focusing on simple yet effective upgrades, you can significantly enhance your home's appeal and increase its market value. Whether you're a homeowner looking to sell or a commercial property owner aiming to attract tenants, these tips can help you make the most of your investment.
