DON’T overspend on your home, un­less you’re not con­cerned about re­coup­ing the cost.

It’s easy to splash out on ex­pen­sive home im­prove­ments, but it’s wise to spend in pro­por­tion to the value of the prop­erty and the area it’s in.

Fit­ting a £50,000 kitchen wouldn’t be in­ap­pro­pri­ate in a £1m house, for ex­am­ple, but could be con­sid­ered an un­wise in­vest­ment in a £250,000 house. they are now, but orig­i­nal cor­nic­ing, floor­boards, fire­places and doors, etc, add value and make your home more at­trac­tive and sell­able.

Fea­tures can of­ten be re­stored if they’ve been re­moved, us­ing ei­ther orig­i­nal or re­pro­duc­tion ver­sions – eBay’s a great place to find them.
