With the UK economy not only out of the red, but actually bouncing back to pre-crisis levels, Birmingham and West Midland home owners are benefiting from a 5.1% growth in the value of their properties. Sutton Coldfield residents in particular are holding out hopes that manufacturing giant Jaguar Land Rover’s expansion plans for their local plant in the area and the recent reaffirmation of the town’s royal status both will boost houses prices even further.
This means across the region, there has never been a better time to capitalise on house price growth by investing in our homes. In an interview with the Telegraph newspaper, hit property show presenter Phil Spencer of Location, Location, Location, said one of the top ways to increase the value of your property is to add storage space to maximise living space. In particular he recommends filling awkward spaces. “You can never have too much storage space,” said Spencer. “One of the best ways of increasing it is to use the ceiling voids.”
In particular smaller properties such as apartments can benefit enormously from the customised storage solution a skilled Sliding Wardrobes World designer can provide. Because living space is at a premium, in apartments, but also in converted basements and loft rooms, making use of void space is crucially important.
However, it is the quality finish of your storage solution that will not only add value to a home, but also create an attractive feature that can speed up the time taken to sell your property. Local and experienced bespoke craftsmen from www.slidingworld.co.uk can discuss your individual requirements in maximising the space you have to improve the quality of life you enjoy within your home. When it comes time for you to sell they will already have designed and delivered an important feature that will provide your home with an important asset to attract buyers. The installation of a fitted wardrobe is an investment in your home which you can look forward to seeing returned upon sale.
Consultants at Sutton Coldfield-based Showroom will also leave you with selling tips to make sure your buyers leave with the right lifestyle impressions when they visit your home. Only fill your storage space to 75% for example. No matter how large and efficient your storage space, if you have filled it to bursting buyers will be left with the impression of a cramped and cluttered lifestyle. Make sure that what you are storing is appropriate to the room. Buyers will be put off by seeing DIY tools stored in your bedroom because they will wonder why you do not have space to put them somewhere suitable.
Most importantly, talk to your interior consultant about what you want to achieve in your bespoke storage solution. Think about what you need now, but also consider what the next step holds for you so you benefit from your designer’s in depth experience. Sliding Wardrobes World designer, Arkadiusz Gmitruk said, “We are more than happy to help.”
