If you own a property with a bit of character, there are a lot of small things that you can do to enhance the beauty of your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers if you one day decide to sell. Plus, making your home more beautiful will make you love it all the more, and spark a feeling of joy every time you come home.
Kitchen nooks are a great space where you and your family can have breakfast and feel lovely and cosy while you do it. If you have an awkward corner that you can’t figure out what to do with, then adding kitchen nook benches is a great way to make the most of your space while adding a unique and quirky feature to your home.
Particularly if you are living in a period property, sash windows are a great way to add a little character to your home. Sash windows are made with aesthetics in mind, so they will help your home to have a touch of elegance and if you are thinking of selling in the future they will give your potential buyers what they want to see from a historic property.
Replacing your existing sash windows also increases the security in your home because it means that they are more difficult to break into, and you’ll find that it improves the energy efficiency of your home and helps to keep you warmer.

Use the space under your stairs
If you live in a property with stairs, chances are that beneath them is a little room where you chuck all of the old paint tins and wallpaper or store your shoes. If you install proper storage such as shelving or sliding racks you can maximise your under-stairs storage area and really make the most of the space.
Alternatively, you can use your under-stairs space for something unexpected like:
- A tiny playroom for kids and toddlers. Added bonus, all of their toys can get shut neatly away after they’re done.
- A cosy reading nook. Add comfy seating, soft lighting and storage for your favourite books and you’ll have the perfect place to hide with your latest page-turner.
- Laundry. If the space under the stairs is big enough, it’s a great place to stash your washing machine – leaving you extra room in the kitchen.
Make the most of your vertical space, and give your home a library feel, by adding plenty of built-in shelving. Not only are they practical, but they make a great decorative feature which you can stuff full of your favourite books, photographs and candles.
If you wanted to do something extra special, you could even install your bookshelf over a doorway and create a secret room straight out of a gothic horror novel, which you could use as a reading space or just as a talking point at parties.
