LIFESTYLE: What Room Should You Renovate Next?

Are you looking for a good way to make your home a little more pricey? Well, renovating your home is the number one way to add value to it; you can add in extra rooms, create more space, and make the property a lot more attractive to the market with plenty of new modcons. 

But what room should you focus on right now? And what order should you proceed in? You’ve only got a limited budget, and you want to use it wisely! Well that’s why this post is here - let’s go through the right kind of renovation priority list below.

Start with the Kitchen

The kitchen is the number one room to renovate; a new kitchen, either classically styled or refreshingly modern, always looks good in the eyes of a potential buyer. And not only that, it’s simply just the best room to keep functional as time goes on! You probably spend half your life in there, and it’s always nice to see a clean and stylish outfit around you. 

So focus on ways to improve your kitchen first of all. You can work with a company like KBB East Anglia to come up with a bespoke solution that really feels like you, or you can simply replace the backsplash and/or the countertops, or give the walls a fresh lick of paint. Even the smallest of improvements can add an extra percent of value on top! 

Move onto the Bathroom

Then it’s best to work on the bathroom. The second most used room in the house, a bathroom needs to be clean, cosy, and feel like a lovely place to spend your time. It can’t be too cold, and it certainly needs to be well ventilated, and walk-in showers are all the rage these days. 

Adding an extra sink, replacing the showerhead, and regrouting the tiles are three of the simplest renovation projects to do that’ll boost the value of your home. They’ll all also make the room easier to use, especially if you’re constantly hurrying your partner out first thing in the morning! 

Finish with the Bedrooms

The bedrooms in your home are pretty standard rooms, but the more storage function you can squeeze out of them, the better. Fitted wardrobes are incredibly popular right now, as well as adding ensuite access, and finding space to fit an extra bedroom in will always add at least an extra 10% of your home’s original value to the pot. 

Converting the loft to make a guest bedroom is a good way to kill two birds with one stone. You make good use of the space up there, and you manage to make more usable space in your home in one go. Many buyers will love being able to style and design this extra room to their heart’s content, even if they have no need for the bedroom. 

Renovating your home can be a lengthy job, but the work is all worth it in the end!
