Timber windows and doors and how to add value to your property in 2021

Whether you’re putting your house on the market or thinking about home improvements in 2021, knowing how to increase its value is vital. Certain projects don’t simply add kerb appeal, but can boost its worth too. What’s more, they don’t have to cost the earth to make a big difference. From changing fixtures and fittings and replacing internal doors, there are plenty of ways to give your home a facelift. Here, we take a closer look at how to add value to your property.

  1. Give the house a lick of paint

    Perhaps the cheapest and most simple way of giving your home a makeover is to repaint the inside. It’s not until you get a fresh coat of paint on the walls that you realise how many imperfections build up over the years! If you’re selling, opt for neutral shades over bright colours, and make sure you mask up!

  2. Replace your internal plywood doors with timber doors

    It’s often the small details that give an overall impression of a house. Having a high quality finish with cheap ply board doors can be all it takes to create a bad impression. Swapping plyboard doors for timber doors is a great way of showing your attention to detail.

  3. Think about getting a timber front door

    A front door is a front door, right? Not necessarily. Your front door is the first door people see when they visit your house. And as you know, it only takes a couple of seconds for someone to get an impression. Make sure it’s the right impression and consider a timber front door.

    Create more usable space

    When it comes to houses, space sells. Consider whether adding a timber conservatory will add value to your home. Most of the time, conservatories do not need planning permission and can be built much quicker than an extension. They’re usually cheaper too! When looking at timber conservatories, be mindful to use a reputable company who guarantee their work.

    5. Change old windows for something new

    Perished PVC windows can ruin the aesthetic of a property, not to mention make them inefficient. If your windows are in need of being replaced, consider a classy and timeless alternative, such as timber windows.


If your home is a period property, you’ll be familiar with the beauty of sash windows.  Bursting with history and heritage, sash timber windows give an unsurpassable level elegance to a property.
