When I was looking for a new home recently, I saw a lot of bad bedrooms. The bathrooms, kitchens, gardens, hallways, lounges were all amazing, but the bedrooms were just the forgotten entity, the poor relative. So with a keen eye for furniture, the obvious choice to add value to your home is fitted furniture.
Floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall storage in any bedroom is a welcome addition to any new buyer. It’s one less thing they must do.
Let me explain. We put wardrobes into a lot of new build properties. Builders will often fund one wardrobe in the main bedroom. And that’s it. So new homeowners have this gorgeous new house with everything sparkling and new. And no clothes storage in bedrooms 2, 3 or 4. Nightmare. A pain.
If you want to add value to your home, get rid of all the mismatched pieces of furniture that your granny gave you, or that bargain freestanding wardrobe you picked up from MFI before it closed in the 2000s.
Get a company like Swan Systems Furniture round to create you something as stylish and neutral as possible. Let us know your budget and we will find the wardrobe, chest of drawers, bedside units, tall boys and make them fit your home.
It’s not just the bedrooms
Put fitted furniture into the spare room to create a home office. As 2020 has shown us all, working from home could soon be the norm, so create a fitted home office and show potential buyers how easy working from home would be.
Or create a walk-in wardrobe. These are incredibly popular at the moment and are bound to add value to your home.
Don’t think of fitted furniture as a dated concept. Think of a matching collection of furniture, in this year’s must-have interior colours. While I cannot put an exact value on how much it would add to your house, I know for a fact it would help you sell your house faster. That’s going to be of value to you.
