Some of us are lucky enough to inherit or win money over the course of a lifetime and without a little inspiration it is easy just to squander it on holidays, new cars and just about anything we fancy, but what about investing in your house instead? Ok, we’re not saying you should not enjoy your new found wealth and spend it all sensibly but it does make sense to invest in your property, as the return on investment you get will be worth it.

You may be saying to yourself, ‘There’s nothing wrong with the house, why should I’? but there are so many things you could do to make it more comfortable and ultimately marketable if you ever decide to put your home on the market. In this short Concept Concrete blog, we’ll give you some ideas as to how you can transform your property with a larger than average, unexpected windfall.

Upgrade your Swimming Pool

Unless you have recently installed a brand-new swimming pool, the chances are you will have noticed a few things you can improve about both your swimming pool and the area around the swimming pool. Brand new furniture, a jacuzzi installation and perhaps even a swimming pool extension are all within reach provided you have the budget and available space. You could also consider landscaping the garden area surrounding the swimming pool and thus turn your bog-standard backyard pool into a tropical oasis.

Home Extension

Provided your budget is sufficient this is probably the best thing you can do to make your home more liveable and definitely more marketable. Every single one of us, almost without exception, would like a bigger home and what better way to do it than with an extension. For slightly smaller budgets, a loft conversion can offer the same benefits.

A New Driveway

Ok, your existing driveway may be fit for purpose, but could it be improved? Would a new driveway considerably improve the overall look of your property and make it more attractive to visitors and potential buyers? If the answer is yes, a new driveway is a fantastic investment. With the range of construction materials available and a dazzling array of styles to choose from, you can install a driveway that complements the existing features of your property perfectly.

Garden Landscaping

If you have the available budget, there is no reason in the world why you have to stop at just landscaping around the pool, you can transform the whole outdoor area. The options for this type of project are almost endless, so it may pay to get some advice and recommendations from a highly regarded and experienced garden landscaper before you decide on any given design.
