If you’re looking to increase the value of your home you may be inclined to pursue expensive extension or renovation processes that are costly and time consuming. However, these are not the only way to improve the value on your home. Experienced property developer Tim Manning suggests that simple storage techniques implemented into a home can make a huge difference on the price of a home.
When your house is on the market you want to make it as attractive to buyers as possible, to sell your home as fast as you can. When a home is appealing people are willing to pay more to secure the property, these factors are heavily influenced by how to interior is presented and how well the property is kept.
Remember that during this time you’re attempting to sell a lifestyle rather than a building. Sellers need to be able to present their property as a lived experience for buyers. Potential buyers need to be able to see themselves living at your property.
When rooms are full of items they become claustrophobic spaces, seemingly smaller and darker than they really are. This is not the type of setting you want to sell a potential buyers. Storage will be extremely helpful in reducing the negative influence that excessive belongings have on a room. It creates space and can beautifully present the possessions you wish to display.
It’s important to think selectively when dealing with belongings. If you find that for the most part, the possession spends a lot of the time lying around unused then it’s better to keep it away. Incorporating storage areas into your home can be of massive assistance in this case.
While you may be limited for current storage it doesn’t mean that you’ve utilised all possible solutions. Often if we look hard enough we can find more spaces to use for storage. Take advantage of hidden storage areas; under desks or shelves and drawers. These spaces can be extremely helpful during organising if used properly.
If you have some breathing room in your budget it may be a good idea to consider replacing existing furniture with those that provide extra storage options. There a lot of these available now as smaller living spaces become more popular so it’s a good idea to take advantage of this. Storage is key to having a home that runs smoothly. When possessions are organised, easy to find and attractively displayed the home reaches its true potential.
