Space Saving Tips
One thing that most buyers are looking for is space. They want to know theyâ€™re going to have room for everything (and everyone) and theyâ€™re not going to grow out of their house too quickly. So here are some ways to make your home seem bigger than it really is.
Get rid of clutter
This is probably the most important secret to increasing the illusion of space. Remove items you donâ€™t need from surfaces, particularly in the kitchen. Keep shelves tidy and not stuffed with books and ornaments.
Paint the walls
Use white or neutral colors to make rooms appear light and spacious. Use tones of a neutral color such as brown or gray to avoid visual clutter and make your dĂ©cor feel more harmonious.
Consider off-site storage
If youâ€™re running out of room for your possessions, move some of them into a storage unit while your house is on the market. Alternatively, have a yard sale to get rid of unwanted items â€” or donate them to charity. Otherwise, your house might look as if itâ€™s not spacious enough for a family.
Make sure youâ€™ve tidied your closets. Invest in an organizing system, if necessary. Remove clothing that youâ€™re not likely to wear from your closets.
Clean up the garage
People want to know they can fit a car (or two) in the garage and still have room for storing their possessions. So clear out your garage and neatly organize everything that must stay in there.
Mirrors and drapes
Place mirrors in strategic places and remove fussy window treatments to enhance the illusion of space.
Small space doesnâ€™t mean you have to be cramped.
