Tips from Camp Hopson on Better Uses for Living Spaces

There are always ways to improve your living spaces at home – so why not take a look around your house to see what needs updating. Maybe your living room walls could do with a lick of paint, or the carpets are faded or dirty from the family trampling in and out with their shoes on. The settees might be covered in the dog’s hair or claw marks from the cat. Whatever small things you can list they will eventually add up and it might be time to starting planning some home improvements.

The best way to start home improvements is to clear as much space as possible. Go room to room and see how full they are. If you have a spare room that has storage boxes full of things you can’t easily identify without going through them all, chances are they’re full of pointless items you can throw away or store away somewhere to create more space. If your garage is a similar story then some tough decisions are needed – sell the things you can make money from, if it’s worth taking the time to do it. If there are things that you don’t want or no longer use then give them away. Ask your family and friends if they’d use it or take it down to the local charity shop. If it’s old documents – shred them or file them away safely. Who knows – by the time you’ve finished you might already have regained an entire room!

There are lots of ways to spruce up your home without spending a lot of money. A lick of paint for each room and a deep clean of every carpet will make your house look brand new. Cover over cracks and dents in the walls first though – better to paint over smooth surfaces, especially if you decide to use wallpaper. If you’re busy and you’d prefer the job done quickly and professionally then have a look around for a decent painter and decorator. Just don’t go with the cheapest option – get referrals from family and friends instead to get the job done properly.

After you cleared the clutter away and everything you don’t want any more you could be left with things that you don’t want to part with but they’re still taking up lots of room. Furniture you want to keep for your children when they move out, an antique table that’s been in the family for generations, a TV that is still in good condition but you’ve upgraded. When this happens it’s time to contact Camp Hopson to discuss storage options.
