Building More Storage into Your Home

Part of Selling Your Home For Dummies Cheat Sheet (Australian Edition)

One of the biggest complaints of home owners is the lack of storage; this can be a turn-off to likely buyers who are inspecting your home.

Showcasing your home is all about highlighting the possibilities. Here’s how to make more space for storage:

  • Rooms. Ensure each room in your property has some form of cupboard, cabinet or shelving. Even if the storage isn’t built-in, you can show the room’s potential for fitting in a wardrobe or bookshelf.

  • Roof space. Convert your roof space into an attic with a pull-down ladder and have it on display during open-for-inspection times. Even a crawl-space is somewhere to store old files and other treasures.

  • Shed. If you don’t have a garage, buy a garden shed big enough to fit a few tools and a bike or lawn-mower.
