One of the best things you can do right from the start of the design and planning stage, when building your DFW custom home, is to add a good amount of storage space throughout the home design. If you want to play it smart and think of the future value of your home, a very simple trick to increasing your market value from the very beginning of the project is to make sure that you have included an abundance of closet and storage space throughout the home and garage.
A large number of homebuyers become disenchanted when looking at houses. They see so many kitchens, laundry rooms, hall closets, etc. that provide insufficient cabinet and storage space. Always include a considerable amount of cabinet space; making certain it is created for style and efficiency. Don’t fall into the trap of sacrificing one for the other.
Keep in mind that finished, functional basements and attics immediately improve your overall square footage, which will naturally increase the value of your home. Rather than design a traditional closet in the master bedroom, add a walk-in closet to transform a standard bedroom/bathroom into a Master Suite. In addition to ample, well-placed cabinet space in the kitchen area, incorporating a pantry – preferably a walk-in pantry – will add additional value to your home. Incorporating additional storage space and cabinetry in your bathrooms brings great appeal as bathrooms typically lack in both areas. Families always need extra space in the bathrooms for the convenience of storing towels, wash cloths and other toiletries.
One of the best benefits to having all of this additional storage space is that it will pay off way before you actually sell your home. You will enjoy the benefits in your day-to-day living routine every time you access any of your cabinets, closets or other built-in storage spaces you’ve included as it brings more convenience, ease and simplicity to your life.
Are you wondering whether or not it’s worth the investment? Have a look at this little statistic…
Based on a write-up in the Wall Street Journal, an interesting National Association of Realtors study stated that 2/3 of home buyers are prepared to pay more for a walk-in wardrobe in the Master Bedroom. Gives you something to look forward to when you sell your home after the many years you’ve been able to enjoy all the closet and storage space yourself!
