The Superdraft team has seen renovation projects ranging from simple extensions to major structural overhauls. Many think that bigger is better, a mentality that extends to planning home renovations. While building a whole new storey certainly can make a house look more appealing, it is entirely possible to add impact to your house and raise its property value without having to add a lot more height and width to it. Here are some cost-effective renovations for your home:

9 Signs It’s Time for a Home Renovation Project

Prettify the Front

You can add impact to your home by improving the house’s first impressions. Options can range from simply tidying up the garden to updating your house’s cladding to give it a more modern look. Put emphasis on the entrance as well. You can update your porch and your door with a fresh coat of paint.

Repaint and Refit

Repainting a space is one of the most cost-effective renovations that can impress your guests and your future buyers. Not only can paint give your home a new look but also it can affect the lighting levels and heating of your home and potentially make it more energy-efficient.

You can give your walls and ceilings a coat of brightly coloured paint, and replace lighting fixtures to rejuvenate the overall look and feel of a room. Updating the handles on doors, cupboards, and closets can also bring back some life into a tired space.

Tear Down the Walls

While some say that walls are fashionable again this year, open plan layouts still serve homeowners well lighting up their homes and providing flexibility. The light that walls take away can leave you feeling boxed in, and limiting spaces to one sole function also limits your movement within your home. See if you can have non-structural walls taken down to open up living areas and turn them into multifunction spaces.

Add Another Bedroom

An extra bedroom if done right can significantly increase your home’s property value. There are a variety of ways to build a new bedroom. You can choose to extend your house; divide an existing space and use a portion to create the new room; or convert a space such as an attic. With clever design, you can reinvent a space in your home at a low cost.
