There is never a perfect time to expand your loft storage and often it’s a job that gets put off until such time as you run out of space, or you start tripping over boxes and clutter.
Loft storage is one of the most cost-effective ways to store the possessions in your home that you either don’t want to get rid of or that you use now and again – like the Christmas decorations. In this article, we look at 5 reasons to expand your loft storage.
This is the most obvious benefit is that it creates extra space in and around your home. Even a simple job as boarding your loft space will make a huge difference and allow you to declutter areas such as the spare bedroom and garden shed.
A lot of people already use their loft for storage, but it’s not exactly organised. We’re certain that a good proportion of lofts in the UK are filled with old boxes and plastic bags containing items that might well be deteriorating due to damp and mould.
Not only that but access probably isn’t easy and, in some cases, can be dangerous if you’re balancing on an unstable ladder – a Fakro ladder solves that issue right away.
When heat escapes the first place it goes is up and out of the roof which can influence your energy bills if your loft isn’t insulated properly. With a bespoke loft storage solution, only the best insulation techniques and products are used to keep the warmth in during winter and the heat out in summer.
When people purchase a new home one of the first things, they do is to check out what the storage space is like. This gives them an indication of whether they are going to have enough room for all their possessions.
By adding a bespoke loft storage space you can instantly add value to your property and make it more desirable to buyers should you decide to sell in the future.
There are a lot of self-storage centres across the UK, but it can become expensive depending on the square footage and how long you need to rent the space.
Not only that but if it’s something you need to get to more than once, you’ll have to factor in the travel time. Over a year this can become very expensive, which makes bespoke loft storage a much more attractive proposition.
