Redesigning Unused Space in Your Home

Do you have an area or room in your home that is unused and you are not sure what to do with it? ReDesigning unused space in your home not only adds value but turns wasted space into areas or room you will love. You only have a given amount of square footage in your home so using every inch is important especially if it is not as large as you once had.

After moving into a smaller dwelling my clients needed to find space in their new home for an additional home office. Because there was a dining room and counter bar for meals, the area in the eat-in kitchen was becoming an unused space collecting items. The built-in desk provided the perfect starting point for creating the necessary home office. When moving into a new home with furniture and boxes scattered everywhere, I always say it is like putting a giant puzzle together. All the pieces are there, you just have to move them around to try different arrangements in the different rooms to achieve that perfect fit.

In this case, there was a large dresser in the guest room that overpowered the room. We moved it into the unused kitchen space to use as a credenza. Adding a hutch from a smaller desk which is now in the guest room provided additional shelving. Favorite artwork and treasures completed the look for this "corner office". Now everything at their fingertips in a quiet area away from the main traffic flow.

Next time you are wondering what to do with that empty wasted space, "shop" around your home for possibilities to bring into unused space to redesign an area or room where you will love spending time.

The Home Staging , the art of making your home look neat, stylish and inviting to a potential home buyer, is the essential first step in selling your home.

Yes it is...before the sign goes in the yard, the house needs to be ready to show i.e. staged to sell!
