Investing in the most crucial rooms in the home is one of the easiest ways to get the most bang for your buck. “You don’t need to spend big to see a transformation. It’s all about thinking strategically to highlight rooms that, when revamped with functionality in mind, have the power to elevate a home’s value,” says Clipsal’s CEO, Chris Kerr. 

The cost-of-living crisis has hit Aussies hard, so many are looking for ways to save, but still want to  upgrade their home. According to recent research, Aussie renovators are looking for energy efficient and sustainably made products. 

To guide homeowners through their renovation journey, Clipsal’s Chris Kerr has revealed the top five rooms where renovations make the biggest impact.

As the heart of the home, ensuring that your kitchen is the place you want to spend time in is crucial. Placing an emphasis on functionality and pairing it with modern design can instantly change the look and feel of a kitchen. Focusing on small but impactful upgrades will lift the design and usability of a kitchen.

Cabinetry, eco-friendly appliances, and switches and countertops are a great way to set your home apart to yield a strong return when selling. 

Ambient lighting is a great way to add luxe factor to your bedroom, and dimmer lights are a perfect way to transition to the end of the day. Investing in a range of LED dimmer lights that are designed to save  energy by reducing power consumption, will also help reduce your energy bills. With the added convenience of bluetooth controls and smart timer features, you won’t even have to leave your bed to create ambience with this simple bedroom facelift.

According to new research, homeowners are more eco-conscious than ever, upgrading your bathroom with environmentally friendly features not only contributes to a reduced ecological footprint, but also enhances the overall appeal of your property. Installing stylish energy-efficient lighting, and water-saving taps and showerheads saves water and energy as well as upgrading value and look of your bathroom. 

Different spaces around our homes can become home offices. Having a space that doubles as an office is a huge value-add and small changes can create a functional work environment. For example, installing some joinery or office furniture with smart, eco-friendly lighting with some cooling or heating solutions can ensure your new home office is perfect for added space for productivity. Sustainable and innovative options such as Clipsal’s USB-charging ports and light switches are great options when it comes to upgrading your home office. 

Transforming your home’s outdoor area will not only add value to your home, it also creates an environment that you will want to show off. To keep BBQs going into the evening, LED outdoor lighting and energy-saving motion sensors create the perfect place for entertaining. Investing in smarter and more sustainable options for your outdoor area will enhance the look and feel of your outdoor space making it a place where you want to spend time, alone or with family friends. 

Whichever changes you make, remember that renovating your home is a lifestyle enhancement as well as an investment in one of your greatest assets so make the most of them once they’re finished.
