Creating a Clutter Free Home
Creating comfortable living in your home, begins with spaces that are free of clutter to enable this to happen you need plenty of storage. Most homes have an attic of some size, where up to 30% of the home’s total capacity could be lying dormant, so why not use it for storage? From a simple attic ladder installation, through to a custom designed roof storage solution, you can reclaim your home from clutter and unlock a fantastic new storage area.
Attic Storage Options – How much might it cost?
For as little as $500 an Attic Ladder can be supplied which provides you with easy access to the roof space. An Attic Storage Room can cost between $2,000 – $10,000, tailored to suit your budget and needs. We have basic storage options right through to dust proof storage room, creating a clean area that will not only protect your valuables, but also add value to your home
Convert your attic space or pay for lock up storage?
When comparing to a ground floor lock up storage unit, a basic attic storage conversion practically pays for itself in just under 5 months and adds permanent value to your home. It therefore makes economic sense to invest to increase the value of your home with a convenient and permanent attic storage solution that unlocks your valuable roof space rather than spending on lock up storage that you will never own and be a drain on your finances.
Tips for making better use of your attic storage space:
1. Make Use of Height for Storage
Rather than just stack boxes or simply dump items on the floor of your attic, consider setting up shelving to take advantage of vertical space. Taking measurements is important here to avoid problems and maximise your storage capacity. By measuring every nook, eave and narrow space, you can figure out how to put your shelving together in a way that takes full advantage of the space available.
2. Use Proper Storage Containers
Using sealable plastic containers will protect your stored items from exposure to moisture and other damage far better than cardboard.
For maximum storage efficiency, find identical containers that exactly fit your shelving and stack neatly on top of each other. Grouping your storage items together in the same container, and store similar item containers in the same area, will make finding them much easier than distributing similar items in different places.
3. Set Up a Labeling System
Not many of us have a photographic memory, so if you want to be able to find anything in storage, you’ll need to set up a labelling system. Putting labels on the outside of your storage containers can save from wasting time opening everything up to take a look inside, making a mess and having to organise it again. Your labelling regime doesn’t have to be too sophisticated; just a simple description of the types of items can be enough to save you time on searching.
Here’s what the property experts say
“A good quality attic conversation not only adds significant value to your property in terms of increasing the sale or leasing price, but also widens the appeal of your property. The versatility that it offers means more people can envisage themselves living there. Whether it’s a home office, extra storage or a kids play room the possibilities make your property more appealing.”
