Over the years, the value of your home gradually decreases. This occurs for a number of reasons directly related to the materials, installations and finishes used in construction and their subsequent wear and tear, either through use or over time.

In this post, we'll share some steps you can take to increase the value of your home without having to spend a lot of capital on remodeling or renovations, with a little ingenuity and creativity , you will be able to achieve your goal.


There are several reasons why a person might decide to renovate to increase the value of their home, either to sell it in the future, or simply to feel more comfortable in their own home. One thing is clear: such an update is always considered a good practice, since it is an investment in the future.


Below we look at some of the most important points to consider when renovating a property to increase its value:


This is one of the most important rooms in the house. Both the home owner and the potential buyer will pay special attention to it. Moreover, the buyer is willing to pay more if the kitchen in the house exceeds his expectations to a significant extent.

A kitchen can be improved not only aesthetically, but also functionally. This means that it can be improved by replacing kitchen appliances and also by changing the layout, for example to change the style of the kitchen.

The following are the most important things you can change in the kitchen:

  • Kitchen layout Today, people prefer open, modern kitchens that can be considered open-plan spaces.
  • Ventilation system. Air must flow freely so that the temperature in the house is correctly adapted to each season of the year.
  • Furniture and shelving The more storage space, the better. It is very fashionable to have an island in the kitchen these days. When it comes to style, it should be both modern and functional.
  • Finishes and coatings. Quartz (silestone), synthetics (corian) and marble are just some of the most in demand today.
  • Household appliances. New appliances are increasingly appearing that help make the kitchen not only aesthetically attractive, but also more efficient.


They say that the first impression is the most important, so the front of your home should be breathtaking. The following are some of the most common façade improvement methods:

  • External cladding with stone or more modern and environmentally friendly building materials.
  • Glass, steel, aluminum and concrete are some of the most fashionable materials today.
  • Replace your front door with one that is more modern, innovative and sustainable.
  • Replace the flooring in your entryway with a more attractive one.
  • Replace your facade windows with more attractive and energy efficient ones.


Bedrooms are one of the most used rooms. Therefore, the more spacious and modern they are, the more valuable the property will be.

Some important recommendations:

  • It should be spacious enough to comfortably accommodate decorative items and furniture for storage.
  • Add furniture that encourages family members to relax and unwind.
  • Built-in wardrobes can increase the value of your home.


Bathrooms used to be decorated in light colors and using standard fittings, but today everything has been modernized, including plumbing trends. Now, as an option, dark colors can be combined with more elegant fittings, which can potentially transform the space into a work of art.

  • Replace taps and plumbing fixtures with more modern and avant-garde ones. In any case, they should be replaced if they are badly worn, dirty or unusable.
  • Reforming the floor to make the material newer and more attractive.
  • Add a bathtub if you have the space - no one can resist a nice bubbley, relaxing bath!
  • Decorate it with plants, mirrors, lamps.

  • Remove the walls that get in your way
  • Replace outdated or unused furniture.
  • The design should have a balance between colors, objects and other details so that the space is perceived as comfortable, pleasant and enjoyable.
  • Make maximum use of natural light. It would be a good idea to install large windows


A home with its own garden is a luxury that many people would like to have, especially during the forced confinement due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If your home already has a garden, it is best to adapt it to modern conditions. This includes:

  • Decorate it with plants, whether on the walls, in pots or in the ground, and keep them in good condition.
  • Install garden furniture that is both beautiful and comfortable.
  • Repair the deck floor, especially the walkways, which are the busiest areas.
  • Illuminate your garden with outdoor lights.

In addition to all these ideas, automation or intelligent room design is currently a good practice. Some of the most common examples are creating "macros" that allow you to create predefined scenes (lights on/off, media control) for greater comfort, programming an automatic watering system or vacuum cleaner in the house, etc....

These options not only increase the value of the home, but also help the tenant use energy more efficiently and, accordingly, save on electricity/water bills.
