If you're planning to put your Long Island home on the market, you'll want to highlight available space to potential buyers. Our REALTORS® are familiar with ways to squeeze every last bit of utility out of any space. In fact, there are many rooms in your house that can do double-duty to appeal to buyers.
- Double Down in the Dining Room
The dining room gets used for special events and holidays. The rest of the year it sits fairly empty. Adding book cabinets and a secretary desk can turn it into a cozy library or office space that buyers will appreciate when you decide to sell.
- Craft Away in the Laundry Room
Like the dining room, the laundry room can be so much more. It is the perfect space to transform into a craft area, workshop, or even an ad hoc home office. Cabinets, counters, built-in desks, and good lighting are the keys to making this double-duty transformation work.
- Disappearing Guest Rooms
If you have an extra bedroom dedicated as a guest bedroom, it is probably not a room you use all too often. While friends and family may come to visit from time to time, the rest of the time, the room goes unused. An easy fix is to transform it into a home office with a murphy bed inset within the walls. This allows you to use it as a comfortable home office throughout the year and convert it into a guest bedroom for that handful of days when family and friends are in town.
- Fully Functional Family Rooms
Kids need a place to play but not quite ready to sacrifice the living room? You can have both by building a play center in the corner of your family room. This allows the kids to swing, slide, climb, and more while you watch your favorite programs, spend time together, and more.
- Home Gyms Double-up as Children's Daycare
If you install mats, good lighting, a television, and a decent sound system, you can get twice the bang out of your home gym. Add in some cubbies for toys and books, a fold-down table, tiny chairs, etc., and you can get your workout before work, and the kids can take over the space while you are away for the day. Indeed, you will see this in many Nassau County homes for sale.
- Build the Sunroom You Desire
Sunrooms are the ultimate fun rooms buyers love. They can be used as an ad hoc library, TV room, breakfast room, family room, craft space, tea room, greenhouse, and anything you desire. These are some of the easiest additions to build, right on top of existing patio space.
