Restoring rooms will also help you to de-clutter and get rid of the items you donâ€™t need. That exercise equipment lying dormant in your unused bedroom should be moved to storage if you donâ€™t actually have anywhere to keep it. Buyers may not want an exercise room at that point in time, but showing them the equipment in a random setting will give them the idea that they can NOT have an exercise space in this house.
The same will apply to any unused items and furniture that are cluttering up your most functional spaces. Clean out your work from the dining room and maybe add in a small desk and chair in the family room to show office space (if your home is lacking an office).
If you have unused basement space, you can use furniture from the rest of your home to create another seating area or other functioning room. This can show buyers â€śextraâ€ť space that the upstairs may lack. If you don’t have furniture in the basement, renting the right furniture is the easiest way to show more usable space in a home.
