Once you get inside a property and past the first impressions, the kitchen and bathroom will be a major focus. Both are incredibly expensive to redo from scratch, but both can be transformed on a budget.
If your kitchen is looking tired, you don’t need to spent thousands on new units, you don’t have to spent thousands on new units, you can repaint or replace the doors, handles and taps with something more fashionable, and have a completely new look for a couple of hundred pounds – or even less.
With a slightly larger budget, you can employ a kitchen resurfacing company, who will take cabinet drawers and doors off, refinish the cabinets and add new doors and drawer fronts. It’ll look like a whole new kitchen, yet at the part of the cost.
In many cases, the fact that the bathroom looks tired is entirely cosmetic, and scrubbing the grouting, replacing shower curtains, bath mats, towels, toilet seats and unfashionable towel rails and toilet roll holders will make an enormous difference.

It’s also worth considering a new floor covering, as in many cases you won’t even need to remove the old one for a new finish.
