4. Paint: Elevate Your Rooms with Colour

Discover the quickest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to make your rooms stand out – paint. Lighter colours, especially white, are proven to increase house prices. Dive into our top tips for paint colours that increase value and explore shades that suit each room's unique lighting (link).

5. A New Kitchen: The Heart of Your Home's Value

Ranked third in rated people's 'home improvements buyers are looking for,' a new kitchen can increase your home's value by a staggering 10%. Explore the layout, cabinets, storage, worktops, lighting, flooring, and tiling in detail before making the decision on what improvements to make and which type of kitchen to fit.

All of these are talking points when selling your own home. It's important to walk the buyer through house improvements and make them desire them. If you want to know more about selling your own home, look no further than 4walls.
