Clever Storage Methods to Improve Your Home’s Image
On a recent Yahoo poll listing the most common turn offs for prospective buyers when visiting a home, along with the obvious annoyances such as a bad neighbourhood or high price, clutter was also highly listed. The reason for this seems clear. When entering a house that you are interested in buying, you want to be able to visualise yourself living in that house. Be able to plan and imagine how you would make this house your own. But this is extremely difficult when there is another person’s clutter in the way. Therefore, here are a couple of ways of maximising your home’s space:
Make Use of Empty Spaces
There will undoubtedly be quite a number of unused spaces within your home that you didn’t even think were functional for storage. The best examples of this are under the bed or on top of wardrobes. A simple wheeled box can hide away under the bed, hiding all that clutter but also makes it easily accessible. The same can also be said for on top of a wardrobe. Yes a wardrobe is already a storage facility but the top is often disregarded. Some simple baskets for example, store your clutter but also will look nice and tidy.
It sounds obvious but buying furniture that also has a storage function makes that extra difference. A great example of this is buying a nice coffee table for your lounge which also has a space underneath to hide things like magazines which may look unattractive to a visitor.
Find the Correct Storage
There is no point in investing in a storage facility that outgrows its demand. Therefore, getting the right storage facility is vital. For example, there is no point in extending your garage or cluttering your existing garage for a motorbike when there are simpler and more effective storage facilities available such as www.asgardsss.co.uk motorbike storage. It is all about maximising the space you have and finding the right storage unit for what is required.
Make a Display
It may sound slightly strange, but making a display of your clutter is also an effective way of hiding it. A fine example of this is in the kitchen. Whilst your pots and pans clog up cupboards and crowd up work tops – simply putting up two shelves to display them will be an effective way of storing them and potentially improve the image of your kitchen.
