After two years spent staring at the same walls over and over again, many of us developed an itch to give our homes a makeover. Some of us went for a splash of paint to bring new life to a room whilst others have gone into full on renovation mode.
How many of these have you ticked off?
The stairs are usually one of the first things you’ll see when you walk into a home (unless it’s a flat or bungalow, obvs) so has a huge impact on what buyers think when they first walk through the door. According to Foxtons, most people will make their minds up about a property within the first 30 seconds of entering it, so a well purposed staircase in good condition will make a huge impact.
There’s no bigger game changer when it comes to hiding all your chaotic mess (and your kids’) and creating a minimalist environment than fitted wardrobes. Clever storage solutions which maximise the space of a property are a hot feature at the moment – in period properties buyers want fitted wardrobes which compliment the character of the property.
A study space has been a sought after asset in a home for a long time, but never has that been more true in 2022 when so many of us are working from home and trialing flexible working. Many of us have to lose a bedroom in order to create a home office space, so a study needs to be multi-functional and have many uses: storage, spare room etc for it to make sense.
There’s been a big focus recently on prioritising adult spaces within homes, and one of these spaces is a dressing room. We won’t lie, this is very high on our current dream house wish list. Part of the lure of a dressing room is the way it can seduce potential buyers into imagining themselves living a certain kind of lifestyle. To maximise the potential of a dressing room it needs to be high quality, functional and come complete with fitted wardrobes.
The idea behind this is that with working from home such a huge part of many of our lives, we need a place to easily escape to and a home library ticks that box. It can be modern and minimalist and more of a calming escape, or a classic style with walls of books. The point is that it’s a separate space to the home office.
