Bathroom and kitchen improvements 'add value to a home'

Bathroom and kitchen improvements 'add value to a home'Kitchens and bathrooms are particularly effective places to carry out DIY, an industry expert advises.

Pointing towards the increased popularity of improving such parts of a property, Andrew Leech, director of the National Home Improvement Council (NHIC), claims that getting to grips with home improvements in this part of a home can help to increase its overall value.

"If you are thinking of selling, you might get a few more thousand pounds out of a property than if you left it in a rather dishevelled state," he states.

And although there is set to be a fall in the amount of exterior work done as the colder months approach, the NHIC director claims that people will continue to carry out internal home improvements.

Such comments come as DIY retailer B&Q recently revealed that sales within its kitchen, bathroom and bedroom division rose four per cent in the 26 weeks leading up to August 1st.
