Adding value to a new or existing property is often looked upon as an expensive and time-consuming process, Gendelman suggests this doesn't need to be the case
PALM BEACH, FL, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — "Start by giving each room a fresh lick of paint," says Jordan Gendelman, a professional interior designer from Colorado. "Whether it's a newly purchased property or a property which has been an individual or family's home for years, it's amazing what simply repainting can do."
Gendelman advises either coordinating paint colors throughout a property, or using contrasting colors to zone different areas such as the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms. "You don't need to go overboard with color either," he suggests. "Instead, a fresh lick of white paint and a bold color on one feature wall per room can really transform a house."
Second on Jordan Gendelman's list is to upgrade existing flooring. "In an older property, consider ripping up carpets or cheap floor coverings to reveal what may have been there originally," says the interior designer.
According to Gendelman, many older or converted properties boast original hardwood or tiled floors. "Exposing beautiful, original flooring is a great way to add interest to a room," he suggests, "and in many cases, it can add significantly to both the character and actual value of the property."
In newer properties, or where any original flooring has been removed or damaged, Gendelman suggests fresh new floor coverings anyway. "Much like a lick of paint, a fresh carpet or replacing a laminate kitchen or bathroom floor can really transform the psychology a room," he adds.
"Next, look to maximize available space," says Gendelman. "Whether for additional living or storage space, consider turning arrested attic or basement areas into space which can actually be used."
While Gendelman is quick to admit that converting a disused basement into habitable living space is expensive, making it fit for storage or other purposes is much less costly. "If, however, there's a budget to properly convert basement or attic spaces, remember that it'll add significantly to the value of the property when it comes time to sell," he adds.
Along similar lines, and in an effort to maximize usable space, Gendelman suggests fitting a kitchen island. "Adding a kitchen island can as much as double the available worktop space in a kitchen," says the professional interior designer. "What's more, add a set of attractive stools and a kitchen island can double up as a practical breakfast bar, great for family life, as well as for entertaining."
Lastly, Gendelman turns his attention to outdoor space. "Perform a garden makeover," says the interior designer, turning his attention to exterior areas. "Think of any available outdoor space as an extension of a property's indoor space."
By landscaping, planting, and adding garden furniture, Gendelman suggests that homeowners can add significantly to their living space without breaking the bank or splashing out on building an extension.
"Furthermore," he adds, wrapping up, "if you can create a covered area, it's space which can be used all year round, come rain or shine, adding cushions and throws when the temperature drops."
