The kitchen is the heart of most homes and has the potential to add the most value. If you are considering renovating, a great place to start is by using current kitchen trends as a template for your own design ideas. Many people fall into the trap of thinking that having many expensive features and spending lots of money on a room will make it more valuable. This isn’t the case if the elements you’ve chosen don’t create cohesion. The most successful and aesthetically pleasing kitchens are those where the features fit perfectly into one another like a puzzle.

Wallpaper and paint are simple ways to bring your kitchen to life! Instead of replacing whole cabinet doors and tiles, use tile paint to repaint the cabinets and walls or even use wallpaper to add style to your kitchen.

These are two low-cost solutions that can help you update your kitchen and ultimately add value to your property as a whole.

Updating the appearance of your front entrance can give your property that essential wow factor. If you have a front garden, start by adding some colourful flowers and plants to brighten up the property’s exterior and make it more inviting. If you can, plant large trees that produce seasonal fruit and vibrant as these tend to be the most popular trees because of their aesthetic appeal.
