How to add value and privacy to your home

If there are two things homeowners and even prospective buyers want from their property it’s to add value and increase the privacy to their property. And who can really blame them?

Privacy in your home is a must-have.

It helps you to feel safe and secure and allows you to go about your business without the fear of nosy bypassers peering through.

So, why not add value to your home and increase its privacy at the same time?

And believe it or not, it can be done without even breaking the bank. Here’s how…

1. Timber Floors

There are no other flooring products that actually compare to timber floors. In comparison to carpet, which only lasts at most 15 years, timber floors actually will last over 100. This means that there is nothing more durable on the market, or nothing as stylish.

On top of this, timber floors require little to no maintenance whatsoever and are incredibly easy to clean.

This is because they don’t store dirt like carpet and adds a great touch of premium quality to your home, which can make it feel more expensive.

Timber floors are also a great natural and sustainable material, unlike other floor coverings, which take their toll on nature.
