You don't need to be planning to sell or rent your home in order to want to increase its perceived value. But if one of these is on the cards, you really can't afford to miss this article! We've taken a look at all the amazing tricks that interior designers use to inject a feeling of wealth and value into clients' homes, and we think that we've discovered some key motifs for you to copy. 

From knowing what colours to paint your living room, through to thinking about how your entrance makes the right impression, we've got all the tips you need, right here. So come and take a look and see how you could increase the value of your home, today!

1. Paint your home exclusively in neutral colours that looks warm and offer the perfect basis for some accessories and won't ever go out of style.

2. Don't ignore damp, as it will need treating, cleaning and, if possible, camouflaging with great furniture, but still left accessible if the issue flares up again.

3. Keep your textiles fresh, to avoid dust mites! Carpets, sofas and cushions should all be deep cleaned regularly and freshened with natural scents.

4. Get on top of electrical faults and make sure that all your lights work properly and have no broken bulbs. Nothing looks as dull as broken lighting!

5. Don't just ignore those blown sealed window units, replace them! Even if you have to replace the whole window, it will be worth it.

6. Keep the fresh air flowing around your home at all times, either with air conditioning or simply opening the windows whenever you can.

7. Don't overburden any room with decoration, as it will drown out the beauty of the design altogether! Simple can be better and far more elegant.

8. Cracked tiles are a huge no-no and can encourage mildew. Replace or repair them straight away and look for colour-matched grout!

9. Don't just give your interior walls a lick of paint, as external ones will benefit too! A few plants will really finish the look and make for a cohesive design.

10. Your home entrance needs to make a great first impression, so make sure the door is in tip-top condition, add a mat and some decent lighting! Plants are great too!

11. If you have a garage, make sure that the doors operate without hesitation. A faulty mechanism can be such a turn off and can make people hesitant about using the facility!

12. Even your patio can benefit from some simple and well-chosen ornaments, but don't go crazy! Remember that clean space is just as attractive as accumulated belongings!
