LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - June 29, 2012) - Tidying up your garden, planning conversions and re-arranging your outside living area will not only improve the look of your home but will help to add value to your property. If you're thinking of moving this summer, making a few small adjustments can create interest from potential buyers whilst ensuring that your home looks contemporary and up-to-date.
According to a recent study by HSBC, improvements such as a loft conversion can help to add over £20,000 in value to your property which will also make your home appear more luxurious and spacious. The home can also be enhanced by adding a garage conversion or a basement conversion which is an on-trend way to add an additional bedroom, living room, dining room or study.
Changing the lighting in your home can also improve its appearance and will help to highlight key features in each room. Lighting is great for making any living space appear more open and much bigger, and this can be achieved by replacing curtains with blinds or adding French doors, creating the illusion that the room is more expansive.
As your garden surrounds your home, it's important that you create a good first impression. If you plan to move in the future, this area of your home will be the first part potential buyers will see so making sure it is well presented is essential.
Improving your standard of outdoor living through specialist lighting and electrical appliances is a good way to showcase your patio area, shrubbery or outside dining area. Creating the perfect outdoor environment can help to make a potential buyer relaxed and will make them feel as though they can enjoy future BBQs and garden parties throughout the summer months.
