Yesterday I was previewing homes on the market for sale and one thing that stood out to me was how one owner repurposed an existing space upstairs that he wasn't getting effective use of. He wanted an office/homework space on the same level of the bedrooms and didn't want to sacrifice a bedroom space.
This was probably an inexpensive home improvement. I don't think he invested in nice flooring specifically for this space as it is the same flooring in the hallway. He probably added light and repainted the room. If your eyes shift to the right you see he kept some original elements in the space. This was probably a linen/storage/utility closet with a rod for hanging items and a flat space above, which he uses as a book shelf. I think an upstairs homework/office space is wonderful and this was an inexpensive, useful renovation that buyers will likely recall as they compare homes during their home searches.. If the buyer for this home prefers a closet space to an office/bedroom space, all he/she has to do is remove and replace furniture. Brilliant.
Anytime you or someone you know is thinking of moving, has a real estate question, wants to talk about the market or has a renovation idea, please feel free to reach out to me. I always have time for and appreciate your referrals.
Life is good!
