3 Ways to Add Storage to Your Home

~ This is a featured post.~

We all want more storage for the home. It is probably one of the most important things for a person to have. You want to be able to keep all of the possessions that you have acquired over your travels, so you need to make sure that you have successfully managed to create this space. Not sure how? Take a look below:

Consider a portable garage

The portable garage is one of the first and easiest ways for you to create more space that can be adjusted as needed. These are storage facilities that can be assembled and disassembled as necessary, so you have absolute control over what happens. It is quite easy to put together, and will definitely help - even a 10 x 20 portable garage is a game-changer.

The portable garage could safely store your vehicle in it if you needed it to, so the more sensitive items - those belongings that would suffer from the weather - could be stored in a secure, dry location like your actual garage.

Create multi-functional rooms

So, if you are going to increase the amount of storage space that you have in your home, it might be a good idea to make your rooms multi-functional.

It’s all about combining rooms that have a similar purpose but are different enough to warrant their own space. So, for example, you could combine the living room with the dining room to create one area where you relax and unwind, but at the same time, sit down as a family and eat. It’s not the easiest of things to do, but it is something that you can do if you’re sensible about the amount of room that you actually need.


Repurposing is one of your best bets for maximizing the amount of storage that you had. All the corridors and landings that you have are walled off by two solid walls. So long as you don’t disrupt the structural integrity of the walls, you can convert them partially into cabinets and shelves.

Drilling slightly back into the wall and removing parts of it without compromising means that you can effectively create a lot of storage for things. It gives you a lot more in the way of space and adds a lot of character to your corridors and walls. It’s a good pick for interior decor!

There is a lot that you can do to make sure that you are maximizing space in your home. It’s easy to make sure that you are getting a lot of space when you are sensible about the kinds of compromises that you make and the way that you operate. You’ve got plenty of choices for how best to increase the amount of storage in your home, so to be honest, why wouldn’t you? It’s just a question of taking a look at all of the options and finding the one which works best for you for your needs.  

Home Renovations that are Worth the Investment

~ This is a featured post. ~

Home improvement projects are a great opportunity to add character and create a better living space, but they could also raise the value of your home too. Even if you have no intentions to sell your property in the foreseeable future, it’s always worth thinking about making your home a piece of prime real estate in case you do decide to sell several years down the line. However, not all home improvement projects will provide a return on investment. Here are some of the best projects to choose if increasing the value of your home is one of your goals:

The Roof

An essential part of your home’s structure, the roof is an area that should always be paid close attention to. Not only does a damaged roof lead to higher bills (loss of heat) but it could also spread causing further damage to the rest of your house due to damp and leaks. If your roof is looking worn out or you have noticed some signs of damage, call roofing contractors immediately to inspect it. Although work on your roof can be costly, it’s a vital investment.

Converting the Attic or Basement

If you live in a property that has both of these spaces, converting one into an extra room could be a good idea. Originally designed as storage rooms, it’s good to keep at least one of these areas for this purpose, as adequate storage is desirable in a home. However, if you don’t need to use them both for this, converting one into another bedroom, games room, study or den would help to add value to your home. Having an additional bedroom would make your home appeal to larger families, and if you choose to convert to one of the other suggestions, it appeals to those looking for a little more luxury or a home office area.


If you have the space to extend your property this could be yet another wise investment. Like the point above, adding extra rooms onto the house makes it more appealing to larger families looking to buy. You might not be extending the property to add another room, but instead creating a larger one. If you have a small kitchen, living room, or bathroom, these are all good candidates for extending as they serve more practical purposes in the home.

The Kitchen

Whether it’s an extension or just remodeling, the kitchen is always worth investing in. One of the most important rooms in the house, having a well-designed and well-equipped kitchen is what many buyers look for when inspecting properties. Installing a good-sized stove and oven will be ideal for families or those who are keen cooks, and adequate storage or a built-in pantry will look fabulous as well as being practical.

The Garden

Don’t underestimate the power of your garden. Having a beautiful outdoor space is very appealing to those looking to buy a home. It doesn’t have to be big, but taking care to make sure it looks nice with a good patio, plant pots and character will win many people over. If you can, hire a landscape gardener for a truly incredible transformation.
If you want to add value to your home, choose your renovation projects wisely. Select one of the areas above.
