Last year a survey by the National Association of Estate Agents revealed the top home improvements that could add the best value to your property. Adding a bedroom, usually by converting loft space was quoted as being the best modification, with a third of respondents suggesting a new kitchen added the best value. Conservatories and converting garages into living space also came high on the list.
At Beau-Port we work closely with our clients to make the most of their home improvements, helping them to achieve the best projects for all areas of their homes, not just kitchens but utility, laundry and boot rooms, fitted bedroom furniture for bedrooms, dressing rooms and walk in wardrobes, home offices and media rooms. But the room that always comes top of the list in terms of adding other kinds of value such as improved lifestyle, comfort, appeal and saleability always seems to be the kitchen. Especially the new trend towards having open plan kitchens which combine dining and living space.
