6 Ways to Add the Wow Factor to Your Home
Adding the wow factor to your home has many benefits especially when you come to sell it. A lot of the time these home improvement ideas can add value and improve the saleability of your home. This means that your house will sell quicker and at a better price. Not only this but living in a place that makes you feel happy is very beneficial for yours and your family’s mental health. Here are 6 ways to add the wow factor to your home.
1. Modern conservatories
Modern conservatories not only look impressive, but they add instant value to your property. Generally speaking, the return on investment you get when installing a modern conservatory is greater than what you’ll pay for the extension. What’s more, they add valuable space (perfect for families) and are very energy efficient. With modern advancements in glazing technology, gone are the days of freezing cold and boiling hot conservatories.
2. Use colour
Too many people are tentative when it comes to using colour around their home. If you want to add that wow factor, don’t be afraid to use some bold choices. Greens and blues are ideal for active, daytime rooms while warmer colours are suitable for evening rooms. What’s more, splashing some loud colour on the walls is inexpensive, and providing it’s done well it’ll impress your guests. Dual colour windows also offer a great way to get different colours on the outside/inside of the window to match the décor in your home and garden.
3. Choose the right accessories
Much of the secret behind good interior design is choosing the right accessories. Decorating a room is one thing, but it doesn’t really feel complete until you’ve added things to the shelves. Be clever with your choices, shop vintage, handmade, and local, and you’ll easily add the wow factor to your home.
4. Renovate the kitchen
Kitchens are one of the most used rooms in the home but are also one of the least frequently updated. After all, many of us see kitchens as functional spaces. But if your kitchen hasn’t been renovated in 10 years or so, now might be the right time. Plus, kitchens work great incorporated into modern conservatories for a fresh, open-plan heart of the home.
5. Invest in plants
Plants are an inexpensive and effective way of adding the wow factor to any room. Choose plants with interesting colours and textures and you’ve immediately got fresh accessories that can make a room come alive. If you’re not green-fingered, simply buy fake plants. There are some very realistic options now.
6. Choose statement lighting
Lighting is again one of those functional elements in a home that’s often left alone. However, lighting should be one of the main focal points in a space, as it literally lights up everything else. Select something with an interesting shape or texture, or choose hanging lights to add volume to a space. There’s so much you can do with lighting that makes a massive difference.
If you’ve got the budget, modern conservatories are an ideal addition to any home. Not only will they add the wow factor, they’ll also massively improve the value of your property. Many people (particularly families) look for homes with conservatories because they’re perfect summer spaces.
