Adding value to your home doesn’t always need to involve changing the existing structure of the house. You can also increase your property value by installing an additionalstructure that is both useful and aesthetically pleasing. If you have some extra space on your block of land, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy the benefits of a pergola , veranda, patio or carport. Here. we outline the benefits of each…
A carport is a highly useful addition to any home, especially if you don’t have a garage. Not only is a carport a safer and more secure option for storing your vehicle, building one could have long-term benefits in terms of insurance premiums. Auto insurance takes into account where your vehicle will be parked, among other things, and the more protected it is while parked, the lower the premiums should be. A lockable, solid carport can provide you, and your insurer, with peace of mind.
A patio is a beautiful addition to a home, and adds a touch of charm and class to any backyard. The best part about a patio is that you can choose to install it anywhere on your property, whether it’s by the pool, up in the back corner of your yard or right there by the house itself. Depending on what you want, you can be as lavish or as subtle as you want when it comes to patio size and design. A lot of people like to integrate their patios with their gardens as well, encouraging the growth of roses and other creepers. A patio can be versatile as well, serving as a barbecue area, an extra dining room or just a romantic little retreat for enjoying those warm summer nights.
A pergola is becoming a more and more common feature in the Australian backyard, both because of its sturdy nature and versatility. A pergola can not only provide shelter from all types of weather, it can act as a large barbecue area, a play area for the kids where they’re safe from the sun’s harmful rays or an extra entertaining space featuring anything from a dartboard and pool table to a water feature or pond.
Verandas are not only versatile and functional, but they add a homely and charming feel to any property. Whether you choose a wrap-around country style veranda or a more contemporary option, your home and your family will benefit from the options for enjoyment that it provides.
When considering ways to increase your property value, it pays to think about what you can add to your home, rather than what you can change about the existing structure. Often this is a more affordable option, and one that yields far more impressive results.
