STORAGE IS A PLUS

Give buyers great storage and you’ve won their hearts. If you can add new closets to your home easily, do so. Building a simple closet isn’t difficult if you are moderately handy. If you’re selling an older home, where closet space is typically minimal, this will help! If your rooms are already small, you might not want to take any square footage away from them. Existing closets can be updated to maximize the space at hand. If you don’t have the skills or the funds to hire someone to build new space, consider investing in closet organizers to make the most of what space you have. For instance: • You can easily design your custom closet kit online with a storage solution company like ClosetMaid. • Your standard superstore or hardware store often has exactly what you need in an inexpensive, prefabricated form. • Organizers won’t enlarge your closets, but maximizing vertical and horizontal space is a suitable alternative. And don’t stop there — after all, storage isn’t restricted to closets. Storage improvement opportunities apply to all cabinets, clothes closets, linen closets, and attic and basement spaces. 41
