You Could Increase the Value of Your Home by Up to 40% in 2011

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 16, 2011) - An extension could increase the value of your home by up to 40%, according to the National Association of Estate Agents (NAEA). Installing a new kitchen or converting your loft can also increase the value of your home, which is very useful in a climate where more drops in house prices are expected for 2011.

One way of adding an extension to your home at an affordable cost is to add a conservatory, therefore creating more space and room within your home as well as a whole new living space. This is something which estate agents always look out for when evaluating a property and for those looking to sell their homes this year, it could make all the difference between selling or not.

Thomas Sanderson, the conservatory blinds experts commented on the story: 'Everybody knows the property market has suffered since the recession and homeowners are looking for any way in which they can improve the value of their homes. A conservatory can create this instantly and if well presented with the right style of blinds and décor, it can blend in with the rest of your home making it look bigger and more spacious'.

What most people do not realise is the sheer variety of styles of conservatories available in order to suit the rest of your home. These include:

  • Victorian Conservatories: Not just for Victorian style houses – although obviously perfect for this style of property – this type of conservatory often has an intricately styled roof and looks very elegant.
  • Edwardian or Georgian Conservatories: Often seen with an apexed roof and sliding glass door on the front.
  • Gable End Conservatories: Has a very roomy feel with a more square structure.
  • Lean To Conservatories: (Sometimes called sunrooms) Often used for newer properties, this is ideal for a house without much space for anything bigger, yet still creates a large amount of space for the home.
  • Lantern Conservatories: A taller style of conservatory, this is ideal for period properties and has more windows allowing for a lantern style effect of light in the home.
  • Custom Style Conservatories: A bespoke conservatory can be created to suit your property perfectly based on combining two styles and designing a P-Style conservatory.

The decor of the conservatory is just as important as the structure, however, with Thomas Sanderson advising homeowners not to let their investment down with shoddy interiors. Another figure by the NAEA states that 45% of their members consider presentation vitally important, so having stylish and professional blinds fitted for your conservatory can help make the most of your house.
