5 Ways to Add Value to your property



Tile Paint

Are your bathroom tiles looking a little tired or do you simply want to change the colour of your décor? Then consider White Knight’s new Tub ‘n’ Tile as a cost effective way to transform your tiles, bath and vanity. For the fraction of the price of a bathroom renovation, you can give your bathroom a new lease on life in three simple steps. Just clean, prime and paint for an instant refreshing look. Hint: use white paint to open up the room and make it airy and clean.



Cheap Kitchen Renovation

If your kitchen cupboards have seen better days, simply transform them with White Knights laminate paint. Inexpensive and easy to use, you can paint over existing cupboards for a cheap kitchen renovation. However, if your cupboards are looking just fine, consider a new and updated look by changing the handles and drawer pulls. Bunnings stores offer a variety of shapes and styles which can suit your home for a small price.



Paint and Profit

Why not give your property some new street appeal with a good coat of paint. This is a simple job for anyone and is one of the most significant ways to add value to your property. Visit Kennards Hire all across Australia and ask about their airless spray painting equipment. Sprayers can handle most paint jobs and this quick and easy process will leave you with more time to concentrate on other areas – such as repainting the roof. Your whole property will look like new.



Outdoor Living

Spring means longer days and the chance to bring the outside inside. Outdoor living has become an integral part of the Australian lifestyle so why not create a place for you or your tenants to relax and harmonise with the environment. Build a simple deck outside your backdoor or lay pavers to create an intimate courtyard. These are not hard to do, are inexpensive and will add value to your property whilst increasing the rent.



Low Cost Landscaping

As a landlord it is important to concentrate on how your landscaping can be inexpensive and also add value to your property. Consider a garden that is easy to maintain whilst being drought resistant.  Instant landscaping includes removing excess foliage around the property to create more space, adding plants in pots for a structured and neat appearance and using climbing plants to mask unsightly walls while providing instant privacy.   For more information see the Reno Kings article: Landscaping for Landlords.
