Make use of your extra space

You may have used that spare bedroom as a dumping ground for all of your work equipment, but you need to make sure that you define the room’s initial purpose. Whether it’s an office, guest bedroom or children’s playroom, you need to make sure that it is appropriately furnished.
Also make sure that you show how to use any awkward spaces. Turn the little cubby hole under the stairs into an office space or put a storage unit in the unused corner of the dining room. You need to give the illusion that the house goes above and beyond all of the buyer’s needs.
