Bedroom or dining room?

We currently have 5 double bedrooms in a detached bungalow but no specific dining room. There is also a fairly large modern kitchen that has an eating area. What would add more value to the property, to convert one of the bedrooms to a dining room as part of the kitchen, or to leave the number of bedrooms as five?

  • I would imagine a large kitchen/dining/living space would suite modern day living better. If you have 4 other good size bedrooms, then converting one shouldn't depreciate the property, it could improve saleability. If selling you need to weigh up if converting the property is going to cost you money rather than add value. You could merely show plans for the large kitchen/dining space.

  • Hi, If all bedroom sizes are large and of the approx same proportions we wouldn't see why this would depreciate any of the value of your home. We would advise looking at the costs of doing so and outweigh these costs with the added value to see if it is worth doing.

  • If you are thinking of selling the bungalow, leave it as it is. This gives a buyer more options to do what they want with it. Therefore it appeals to more people. You won't add value without adding more space. If a family is specifically looking for a bungalow, it maybe that they have an infirm elderly relative to care for, they may need that extra bedroom. They might even want it as an extra reception room for the younger members of the household. Don't try to guess what a buyer wants. Let them put their own finishing touches to THEIR house.
