When you are getting your home ready to sell your home, one of the things you want to do is tidy it up and the clutter. One of the hardest areas of the home to keep looking good yet is very important is the hallway. This is the area of your home that potential buyers will see first as they enter it.
The first thing you want to take a look at is what clutter is showing in this area and then devise some type of hidden storage. Even if this is a small space you can utilise out of the way storage that will still look attractive. For example, bench seating with a storage box would work well.
When checking out available storage areas don’t forget to look over head. Most hallways do have space that is vertical that can be used quite nicely. You can build some nice above the head storage in spaces that normally would not be used in the hall.
You may want to keep some attractive looking storage bins or boxes for each member of the family that they can keep their items in as they enter the home. This really cuts down on the untidiness that is usually created from the clothing. These are storage items that you can make yourself or that you can pick up quite inexpensively.
If adding any type of shelving to your hallway make sure that it is sleek and slim. There are many different forms and models available on the market that you will surely be able to find something that fits in nicely with your decor.
Also consider stacking units as this saves on your floor space and still gives an attractive appearance to this area of your home. You can use the upper stacked level for items that do not need to be accessed on a regular basis. The upper stacking units are ideal for clothing that is out of season or doesn’t need to be used that often.
Take advantage of the wall space for being able to hang items on. Light coats or additional winter accessories can be hung nicely. These can be used in place of standing floor coat racks which tend to take up too much space.
Think about the appropriate decor that would work nicely in your hallway and utilise items that would be expected to be found there. For example, an old pair of boots looks quite nice when filled with an arrangement of dried flowers.
Once you have done a quick overview of your hallway area you will certainly be able to spot those items that don’t belong there and perhaps find other storage areas for these. You will be amazed at how these few steps are going to spruce up your hallway area and make it much more pleasing to the eye.
