Increase your storage before selling

Increase home storage before selling

Looking for an easy way to boost your home's storage before you list? Consider these easy storage expansion ideas that buyers will love. 

Bathrooms

Bathrooms can be a clutter magnet and often have very little storage. Home improvement stores offer specialty bathroom cabinets that can fit in small corners, or shelving with cabinet fronts if you have extra wall space. If you have a tiny bathroom, don’t forget the power of a mirrored cabinet that will hold at minimum your daily toiletries.

Bedrooms

As more and more people adopt e-readers, bookshelves are becoming a thing of the past. In the interim, “cube” storage units, like this one from Ikea, offer great open or closed storage options and can also act as a room divider if you have a lot of open space.

Garage

Built-in garage shelving can be more costly than the above options, but there are few things more appealing to some people than a large, organized garage space or shed. Consider a great tool bench, bike racks, and assorted hooks or bins that will stay in place after you leave.
