Finding a spacious rental is hard, being the owner of a small rental can even be harder.
So how do you make space for your tenants, that isn’t readily available? Here are some great ideas:
In between the studs:
Did you realize that you can use the space in between the framing on the walls? This idea is becoming increasingly more popular in small bathrooms. By removing the drywall and framing in a small section in the wall you are providing more storage space. Suddenly that teeny tiny bathroom has a lot more options for placing baskets & bottles.
Above the door
Have you ever looked at that wasted space above the door? Sometimes we place cute little signs there, but what about a shelf. If you place a sturdy shelf there you can make sure that it is secure and not something that may fall down. Now potential tenants have additional space for the items that don’t get used on a daily basis.
Under the sink organizers
We have all seen the “mess” that accumulates under every sink in the home. Did you realize that there are multiple options out there that aren’t hugely expensive to increase the “square footage” of that area. Installing a shelf, midline under the plumbing makes use of the top half of the space.
Does the property have any “empty space”? Something without rhyme or reason, a dead ended hallway or an alcove that doesn’t make sense. Add a “desk” by placing a prefab counter or butcher block in the area, securing it well to the studs. Voila, instant office space!
