If you’ve been a homeowner for some time or have just purchased your first residential property, one issue you may come across is storage space.
Many homes can be limited in their space. Here are some tips to help you find that extra space.
Evaluate your furniture
Being smart with your furniture purchases is a cheap and easy solution to give you more space in your home.
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 at the bottom to be used 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
If you have the budget for it, adding another storey or bedroom on your home could be well worth the investment. Not only does this add a large amount of storage space, but it has the potential to add worth to your home too.
However, be mindful to check your building options with your local council before undertaking any major additions.
Utilise existing space
Another solution to all of your storage problems could be lying empty and unused above your heads.
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.
