Whether you’re thinking of selling your Liverpool home, putting it on the Liverpool rental market, or just want to enjoy living in an immaculately presented house, this is the real estate tip for you. It may seem fairly obvious, but you’d be amazed by the number of people who don’t take the time to do it and then wonder why there are no buyers or tenants willing to pay top dollar for their home. So here’s the tip – maximise your space! Obviously knocking down walls and building extensions are a little dramatic, not to mention expensive. So what are some simple cost-effective ways to create the illusion of having more space in your Liverpool home?
- Start by packing up all the bits and pieces cluttering up your shelves. By putting away the bulk of your knickknacks, valuables and personal items you’ll protect them as well as making each room appear far more spacious. If you find you’ve got a lot of ‘things’ that are in good condition, but that you no longer have any use for, this would be a great time to donate to charity or make a little cash by selling them on eBay.
- Once you’ve decluttered, look at the pieces of furniture you have left and see if each room is appropriately dressed to show off its functionality. As well as a purpose, it’s important to maximise space. If removing an item or two allows for a more spacious appearance without losing the room’s appeal, go for it!
- Storage space is always a big hit for buyers and tenants, so it’s a good idea to make the most of whatever storage spaces you have. Organising each wardrobe, cupboard and storage area to show off its space is a good way to enhance their appeal.
- Simply allowing more light into a home can instantly create a sense of space. Before each inspection open up your curtains and blinds, and turn downlights and lamps on. It may seem silly leaving lights on in the day time, but you’ll be surprised the difference it can make to the look of a room.
