DIY kitchen upgrades have been identified as one of a number of possible ways of increasing the value of a home.
Property expert Phil Spencer, however, claimed that increasing the value of real state could now require more work from the owner.
Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, he explained that this is because unemployment is expected to rise following cuts to public sector spending.
“You can’t just sit back and wait for your house to make you enough money to move on,” Mr Spencer remarked. “You are going to have to take active steps to create that extra value for yourself.”
Meanwhile, an article on clickpress.com claimed recently that simple DIY changes to a kitchen can alter the whole look of a home.
The kitchen is the most popular room to start home decoration, according to the article, which added that it is also the most used part of any abode.
