If you are hoping to sell your home over the next few months, you may wish that you could improve the way that it looks with a view towards improving the overall value. The fact is that there are fewer buyers these days and they are much less likely to pay the asking price. In fact, now is the time for buyers to make cheeky offers, so you need to present your home in the best possible light to get the price it deserves.

Replacement kitchen doors are the perfect way to improve the look of your kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms and it won't cost you a fortune.

The kitchen

Replacement kitchen doors can be purchased for the kitchen from around £50 per door. Add to that some new handles and even a new worktop and you will have what looks like a new kitchen in no time.

In most cases, the carcasses from your old kitchen will be in good enough condition to leave where they are. This will save you money and time – something which you will need plenty of if you are moving house.

Dress the kitchen with a few stainless steel accessories and other items which you will be able to take with you to your new home. Finally a good clean (especially of the appliances) and a fresh coat of paint and the kitchen will be unrecognisable.

The bathroom

Storage in a bathroom is a real bonus when you are house-hunting. Many bathrooms are small and finding enough places to store towels and toiletries can be tricky. However if you do have cupboard space in your bathroom or you would like to add some, replacement kitchen doors could be ideal.

Many replacement cabinet doors will work well in a bathroom and the sizes can be adjusted to fit any size cupboard – even if it isn't a standard shape. This will include under sink cupboards and wall cupboards. If you go with a white gloss, you will freshen up the room and add a modern touch.

If you want to add a new cupboard to the room, you can buy carcasses which will do the job in a variety of shapes and sizes. Then simply choose the right doors and handles and you could have a new looking bathroom for less than a few hundred pounds.

But you could improve your home to the point where buyers are fighting over it and your wildest dreams in terms of value could be realised. The investment you will need to make will be tiny compared to the extra money you could be putting in your bank and towards your next dream home.
