Home Improvements That Add Value to Your Property

We all know that home improvements and renovations can increase the value of a property, but do you know which changes are the most significant? When looking to make home improvements, there are plenty of important considerations to keep in mind. Whether you’re seeking a profit, or just looking to minimise losses, keep reading to find out our top home improvements.

Fresh Paint

Repainting your property is a low-cost, time-effective way to completely transform and refresh both the interior and exterior value of a home. Whether you choose to do a DIY job, or hire a professional is up to you – just make sure that you do a good job of covering up the old paint! Don’t underestimate the value that a well-chosen, timeless colour palette can add to your home. Research has shown that adding a new coat of paint to your property can add thousands of dollars in resale value! If your home needs it, or you just want to pocket a little bit more cash, don’t hesitate to invest in some fresh paint. Seymour’s stocks all of the tools and materials you need in one convenient location. With an extensive range of paint preparation, adhesives, sealants, waterproofing solutions, accessories and more, we’ve got your next project covered! Our team can offer expert advice on any project and ensure your materials are delivered when you need them.⁠

Doorknobs and Cupboard Handles

Adding new doorknobs, cupboard handles, faucets, and drawer knobs to your property is an inexpensive upgrade that can have a big impact on buyers. This cost-effective trick makes everything feel brand new, creating the illusion of a modern renovation. If you’re looking for some inspiration, we love stainless-steel fixtures because they’re timeless, easy to clean, and add a sleek, contemporary feel to any property.

Outdoor Living Space

When your project takes you outdoors, Seymour’s can provide the materials you need for a professional finish thanks to our large selection of landscaping supplies. There is nothing better than a good outdoor entertainment area. Nothing beats the appeal of having a relaxing spot for outdoor gatherings. Even if you can’t afford a complete backyard renovation, there are plenty of inexpensive ways to upgrade your outdoor space. ⁠ New paving, screening for privacy and low-maintenance plantings are simple, value-adding additions that can be knocked off after a quick trip to Seymour Building Supplies

Additionally, some outdoor ambient lighting and furniture will do the value of your property wonders! Think of your backyard as an opportunity to extend your living space. If your budget allows it, we recommend installing a deck or patio. This will extend your living space, adding a new place to dine, have a drink, entertain, or work outdoors. Research has shown that backyard decking typically adds thousands of dollars in resale value – but they can be built for much less than you spend, so you can not only break even, but see a positive return on your investment as well. With a great range of timber and building supplies, Seymour’s can help you complete some of the most detailed building projects. Whether you need quality timber for outdoor decking and scaffolding, or professional advice on a project, Seymour’s is here to help.⁠

Eliminating harsh, dull lighting will immediately add appeal to your home, while strategically placed pools of warm light can increase the inviting nature of a property. If you want to add value to your property, change those outdated light fixtures right away! To take your lighting a step further, add a modern flare and luxurious charm by replacing your overhead lighting with LED under-cabinet and under-table lights.
