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.
