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. Make sure you organize all your cabinets. The same retailers that provide closet organizers can help. Adding extra shelving in the linen closet or laundry room can make a big impact. Updating your home with ROI in mind is the best approach in the decision-making process when preparing your home to sell. Look over this recent list of what buyers want in a home. Compare it to what you have in yours, and upgrade accordingly without surpassing the price line for comparable homes in your area.
