    ‘Love It or List It’ Can Teach Aspiring Renovators

    After
    watching series 1-4 of the TV show, they uncovered that the average Love It
    or List It home renovation costs £54,111.

    And
    that despite spending a huge investment, over a third (36%) of couples still
    end up moving house
    – proving that picking the right renovations is key.

    So

    aspiring renovators:

    A
    lack of space
    Adding

    budget, changing the layout of your home i.e. switching the kitchen and the
    living room.

    of ‘participants claimed a ‘lack of space’ was their main reason for wanting
    to move.
    Not
    making use of the dining room  
    Knocking
    through the wall of the kitchen which connects to the dining room, and
    transforming it into a large open kitchen and diner space.
    The
    dining room was the least used room of the house, so it’s no surprise that

    the kitchen for numerous purposes
    Adding
    a utility room for washing and ironing, freeing up space in the kitchen.
    32%
    of ‘Love It or List It’ participants added a utility room.
    Wanting
    to renovate but having a smaller budget
    Consider
    repainting your home and buying new kitchen doors.

    household added £20,000 to the value of their home by making these small
    changes.
