Investing time and money back into your home can not only give you an increased sense of enjoyment and peace of mind when returning home each day but also help you to preserve or even boost the value of your home and ensure that if the time does come to sell and move on, you are able to get the best possible resale price for it.

Below are some of the best investments you can make in your home to ensure that it is habitable while you live there and will help you get maximum release value, too.

New Roof

Depending on the climate and construction minerals of your roof, you can expect it to last anywhere from 15 to 25 years. If you are noticing damage in your roof or this time frame is likely to expire, then investing in a new roof or having expert roof repairs carried out will not only offer your home protection from the elements and increased structural stability, but it will also be an attractive option for a potential buyer too as this is a cost or repair they won't need to foot the bill for, at least for a few years anyway.


Good home landscaping can add 20% of the value of your home upon resale and give you an area to enjoy every single day. If you're after making profitable changes to your home that increase value and enjoyment, then investing in your garden is a great option. What you choose to do exactly should be based on what other homes have done in the area if you are solely thinking of value only, but if not, then you need to plan your garden in a way that works for your family and how you use it to get the most from the space.

New Kitchen

Ideally, you need to spend around 2-3% of your home's value on renovating a kitchen; up to 5% if you can afford it. This will give your home's value a boost of up to 20% depending on the size, style, area and quality of the finish. Your kitchen is likely one of the most used rooms in the house and is an integral part of the home. So, investing your money in this room can offer you multiple benefits. From a custom-designed space that befits the house and your life to modern fittings and appliances, a new kitchen can really add the wow factor to any house.


Your home decor is something that is personal to you, but when the time comes to sell, you need to look at your home in a more critical light. If you are wanting to sell, a buyer, while appreciative of tasteful decor, wants to be able to see themselves living in your home, and they can’t always do this with your style splashed everywhere, especially if it's massively different to their own. Always be considerate of future plans to move when decorating, and before listing your home for sale, give the whole house a fresh lick of paint. Doing this will brighten the place and make it look fresh and clean, and it can also provide a blank canvas for buyers to see how they will slot into the space. This can help you get more for your home and sell it more easily.
