Improve your property value with some simple illusions!

Improve your property value with some simple illusions!

When improving a property's value, the common misconception is that you'd need to invest thousands of pounds on a new landscaped garden or house extension.

You can, if you have the money to spend. But for those without the budget, you can improve your property's value by doing even the smallest DIY projects, such as making small spaces seem bigger. If done correctly, this can impact your property's value in a positive way.

These projects can be done over the weekend and without any professional's help unlike big renovations such as loft conversions or building a new conservatory.

The best way to do this is by using optical illusions. Remember that the lighter and brighter a room is, the bigger it will seem. Dark tones will emphasise the lack of space though, so avoid using dull or dark tints.

Mirrors also make spaces seem bigger, and the larger the mirror, the better. The illusion is that your available space is doubled.

Other illusions you can employ is by using striped wallpaper to emphasize height instead of width and length. However, minimalistic approaches also help by reducing clutter and helps make space bigger and cleaner to boot.

If you are feeling a little bit adventurous, you can mix and match all the above suggestions and see what you can come up with. Make sure it's tastefully done though - remember everyone's tastes are different.
