Where has all my space gone!?
Regardless of whether you have been a homeowner for some time or have just purchased your first residential property, one issue you may come across is storage space.
It’s time you took stock of your space if you are stacking furniture or having to sidestep cupboards in the hallway.
Use these handy hints to add more storage space to your home.
Evaluate your furniture
Start off by going through each room and determining what could be improved. For example, if closet space is an issue in your master bedroom, you could purchase a bed frame that has added drawer space for extra clothing.
In living rooms, window seats that double as chests could be another option to consider. Not only will you be adding more storage space, but you’ll have a nice place for you or your guests to sit and enjoy a good book.
Build up or out
Not only does this add a large amount of storage space, but it can increase the worth of your home too.
However, be mindful to check your building options with your local council before undertaking any major additions.
Utilise unused space
With a simple conversion, your attic could become a large storage area or extra bedroom for guests or family members.
Remember to keep these areas dry and dust free to ensure your stored items are kept in good condition.
Again, make sure any alterations abide by local council building regulations.
