Apparently the answer to that question is yes, and quite a bit, if research from Sellhousefast is anything to go by.

Real Homes shared calculations made by the company, which worked out that repainting every room in your property could boost its value by around £7,000.

The figures are based on the average price of a home in the UK, and the firm used data from Hiscox about the percentage change in the value of properties after certain home improvement projects are completed.

One of the most lucrative things to do to your home is add a new bedroom. This could boost a property’s value by over £25,000.

Loft conversions and extensions are also a good choice if you’re making changes with a view to selling your property in the future, with each adding nearly £24,000 to the price of the average UK home.

Sellhousefast managing director Robby Du Toit commented: “Homeowners making the decision to stay put and add, improve and renovate their homes instead of moving is becoming the new trend for those looking to adapt their property to meet their ever-changing needs and evolving lifestyles.”

If you’d rather spend money on wallpapering in Hampshire than painting, make sure you brush up on your wallpapering skills or pay professionals to do the work to get the best possible finish.

This could allow you to embrace one of the top trends identified in home decor earlier this year. Floral patterns are big in home interiors, whether they’re on walls or upholstery, the Houston Chronicle reported.
