Adding value to your home

What is your heart of the home?

QT Magazine - - HOMESTYLE & GARDEN - WITH STEVE MAL­LET FROM CAR­PET CHOICE

From the first im­pres­sions to the last glance these spa­ces seam­lessly com­bine form, func­tion­al­ity and style.

SO many of us love our homes – a place to rest, hide away from our busy sched­ule, some­where to share with our fam­i­lies and friends.

The dé­cor of our home not only pro­vide com­fort and tran­quil­lity, but if we make the right, in­spir­ing choices the place we call home can be a re­ward­ing in­vest­ment and per­sonal sav­ings plan.

From the first im­pres­sions to the last glance these spa­ces seam­lessly com­bine form, func­tion­al­ity and style.

Set the scene for your en­tire home through the nat­u­ral warmth of bam­boo and tim­ber de­signs, to lux­u­ri­ous car­pet that in­vites you to kick off your shoes, or add a rug to the nat­u­ral al­lure of your tim­ber de­signs – each style is de­fined by the ma­te­ri­als used from the floor up.

When choos­ing the com­bi­na­tions for your win­dow dress­ings, light fit­tings and paint, all choices need to stay on trend. Re­view these ev­ery five to seven years as they are es­sen­tial and easy value adders.

Adding value to any home gen­er­ally in­volves adding or up­dat­ing fea­tures in some form, for ex­am­ple in­te­rior dé­cor (floor­ing, win­dow fur­nish­ings, walls, ap­pli­ances). Con­sider adding ad­di­tional new spa­ces to in­crease value, pro­vid­ing they seam­lessly in­te­grate and flow with the ex­ist­ing floor plan.

Of­ten con­sid­ered the heart of the home, cre­ate open-plan liv­ing spa­ces, bal­anc­ing style and prac­ti­cal­ity, to add a pos­i­tive im­pact on older homes. Bath­rooms and kitchens are all big-ticket items. These spa­ces may need mi­nor up­dates af­ter seven to 10 years.

Keep­ing on track will give you the benefits of your up­grades along with the added value to your prop­erty.
