“Whether you’re looking to put your house on the market in the next few years, or preparing to sell now, there are a range of factors that contribute to the overall value of a property,” adds Andy Briggs, Head of Graphics and Interior Design, at Spaceslide.
“A dream home for prospective buyers offers features that they won’t have to pay to change once they move in, which is why unique storage solutions, such as a modern walk-in or built-in wardrobe, may bolster your home’s value.”
Andy continues: “While offering plenty of compact bedroom storage, walk-in wardrobes add a luxury feel to set your home apart from the rest. Of course, to maximise your property value, it will take more than one additional feature, but think of ways to make the buyer’s life easier after moving is a great place to start.”
