How To Make Small Spaces Work

If you have read tips on how to sell your home, you have noticed how many experts emphasise the importance of space. If you can create space, or add more room, to your home, you are likely to add value to your property. However, what happens if you don’t have much space or you have small spaces at home. It is still possible to sell your house effectively, but you need to know how to make little spaces work.

Whether you plan on selling your home soon, or you just want to maximise the utility you enjoy from limited space at home, the following tips will be useful.

You may need to be brutal when it comes to decluttering

If you are the sort of person or household, who leads a minimal lifestyle, making the most of small spaces shouldn’t be too difficult. However, if you are a hoarder or you like material things, you need to make significant changes to present your home most efficiently.

If you don’t use something, or it doesn’t offer any utility to you and your loved ones, you’ll need to think about removing it from your home. You don’t need to place it into the bin; you can give it to charity, pass it to someone you know or even try to sell it. The variety of platforms available for people to sell items online has made it easier to go through the decluttering process.

Utilise vertical space

Although floor space is significant in small homes, you’ll find investing in vertical storage solutions, and space-saving products can make life simpler for you at home. Shelves, bookcases, coat-racks and shoe trees are examples of items which allow you to store your belongings in a tidy manner, without taking up too much real estate in your home!

Can you customise a solution for unique spaces?

If you cannot find a mass-produced storage solution to your problems, could you order a bespoke solution? There is a growing number of skilled people offering unique creations, which may be perfect for your needs.

Also, if you order a specialist creation for your home, it may not be as useful to you when you move home. Therefore, you have something else to offer to potential buyers, which will hopefully encourage them to make an offer on your home.

With so much focus on creating space at home, it would be understandable for homeowners with small spaces to be concerned about selling their home,” said Thomas Morris Sawtry Branch Manager Tom Mollett. “However, not every buyer is looking for the same thing. If your home has a unique charm, it will attract buyers, especially if you tailor a solution that enhances smaller spaces.”

Selling your home is stressful, but with the right support, you can make the process easier. To book a valuation appointment at a time that is of suitable to you, click here. Alternatively, you can phone our Sawtry branch, managed by Tom Mollett by calling us on 01487 831333.
