Spring is on the horizon which means most people are thinking about spring cleaning. If you are considering building a new home, it’s important to think about home storage. Home storage space offers a beneficial and useful space to add to your home.
Add Storage To Your New Home
Like most people, we accumulate a lot of “stuff” throughout time. This “stuff” takes up space. During the home building process, storage areas are either forgotten about or not enough space is accounted for after the home is built. Generally, homeowners are willing to pay more for a home with a lot of usable storage space than a home with more finished space that is rarely used. Adding storage space can be done easily in the design stages. Be sure to let your builder know the importance to you. The extra space is typically a minimal cost as long as the builder has time to let the home designer know.
Areas For Storage
- Basements– If you live in Northern Kentucky, you know that most homes are built with basements. Basements offer a great place for storage. They can keep your items hidden and away from everyday living areas.
- Attics- Attics are also a great place for storage. They also can offer large areas that are away from your everyday living activities. If you live in a two-story home, attics can be built off of a common area such as a game room or shared space. An attic can be built for a one-story home off of the garage. Your home builder can make changes to the roof framing to allow for light storage and easy access above the garage.
- Storage Sheds- Storage sheds offer a separate structure to keep your belongings in.
- Walk-In Closets- If you have a lot of items that you want to keep easily accessible, walk-in closets are a great place to store those items.
