Most people choose to move to a new house because they feel they need more space. However, there is an issue with the majority of new build properties. While you may be getting more rooms in the property, space is still lacking. Developers are making it their mission to fit in as many rooms as possible. Doing so, however, compromises necessary home storage. The space under the stairs, traditionally used as a home storage cupboard, can become a WC or a home office. Why? Because storage doesn’t sell houses, but this should not be the case!
Over-extending/developing a property may bring more value. However, the cost will be how you choose to live in it. Transforming a 3-bedroom house into a 4-bed and waving goodbye to home storage space will eventually begin to drive you mad. People tend to forget about home storage. It doesn’t excite homebuyers as much as a brand-new kitchen, but it is essential to a good home.
How to Approach Home Storage
Most people need two types of home storage. These can be split into essential household items and clutter. When visiting a home, you may not consider the fact that you will need space big enough to store an ironing board or vacuum cleaner. It is items such as these that need a place to be stored. There is no point in renovating your under-stairs storage cupboard into a home office if you do not have anywhere else to keep these items stored.
Home Storage should be a Priority
When it comes to clutter, you could simply declutter. The problem with this, however, is that we find ourselves clinging onto possessions we are not yet ready to wave goodbye to. For this reason, home storage should not be an afterthought when it comes to developing your property. Home storage should always be integrated to the point where you don’t even notice it. That is how good storage works.
It is not enough to simply create a designated area or cupboard as “storage”. The key to making the most of your space is sensibly considered home storage with fixtures, fittings and shelves. This is to efficiently make the most of the space and house items such as mops, irons and vacuum cleaners.
