ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT
Fact: Property development is a fickle science. Many improvers reckon that, to attract optimum value, homes should be arranged with as many rooms as possible.
Others believe it’s quality — not quantity — that attracts premium uplift at sales time. We (generally speaking) favour the latter camp.
And besides, as we oft’ opine, your home’s great- est ‘return’ should be measured on a daily basis and not always by a dollar quotient.
Rules vary, of course. Homes within school catchments may attract a higher sales price due to bedroom count, whereas fewer bedrooms — and perhaps a better kitchen — might be important in an enclave favoured by retirees. Balance considered, we maxed up on the lifestyle
AFTER: The clients love drama, and being that the room is large enough to accommodate a bold pattern, a floral motif provides colour and interest.
BEFORE: BEFORE: This tired bedroom space would soon fall victim to a couple of empty-nesters who long for space to spread out.
