September 2018 Edmonton Real Estate Market Update

 
 


 Dear Friends,

Summer is coming to a close rapidly but don’t despair yet — there are still lots of fun, seasonal activities to do from apple fairs to sunflower festivals.

Check out our list of events around the city for inspiration of what to do with your free time.

Talking about freeing up time, what about freeing up space?

A house can feel so much bigger when things are stored properly and everything has its place. We’ve come up with some creative ideas for storage, no matter what kind of size you are working with or what room in your place you want to clean up.

Sprucing up storage can help whether you are just preparing for the winter or looking to sell.

If you are looking to sell, or buy, please keep me in mind. I am happy to answer any questions and look forward to guiding you on a housing search.

No matter what your needs are, I have you covered.

No matter how large your home, extra storage space is always a blessing.

Sometimes, it’s just as simple as adding some cabinets but other times, solutions need to be a bit more creative.

Here are some ideas to spruce up your storage space this fall:

Entrance way
Storage chests act as a tasteful piece of furniture where you can place flowers or other decorative items while still hiding away bulky items.

Mudroom benches serve the double purpose of providing a space to sit as you pull on your shoes and also a place to dump scarves, mitts, hats and other items of easily tossed off clothing.

Coat racks are a must — they make all the difference when it comes to walking in the door and immediately have a place to put your jacket — and take up relatively squared foot space.

Living room
A storage ottoman looks like a centre table but, in reality, has plenty of space under the lid. It can act as anything from a coffee table to foot rest, depending on your needs.

Hang your television up on the wall so that, when it’s not being used, it can be hidden away behind closing doors alongside all the television knickknacks like the remote, DVDs and wires.

Bedroom
Use a storage bed where you can artfully stack boxes or tuck away drawers underneath the bedframe.

Kitchen
Lay your bottles out in a counter top wine rack that stacks the bottles up neatly, one on top of the other, so save up space that otherwise would be wasted. A great way to keep your collection of wine tidy!

On the wall pot hangers are the best way to get your pots and pans out of a tangled mess in the cupboard and somewhere easily accessible.

Office
Create storage cubbies at your desk with layers of shelving where you can tuck papers, receipts, pens and other office supplies.
