There’s no bones about it – Kiwis spend a lot of money on storage units. We love paying for storage space, even though most of us are completely neglecting the possibility of using our attic instead. In this blog we’ll take you through exactly why New Zealanders end up spending so much money on storage units, why unlocking your attic with FAKRO’s attic stairs is the way to curb your storage spending, and how getting these installed could increase the value of your home!
Why do Kiwis spend so much on storage units?
Most New Zealanders start to accumulate possessions from the moment that they move into a house. It’s because we love the outdoors, it’s because we love a sale at Briscoes, and it’s because we love sports. Therefore, it’s very natural for any of us to wake up one day and find the garage packed with a BBQ, skis, golf clubs, an extra fridge and another washing machine, unused deck chairs, boxes of framed certifications, and more – and you need to pull your car in.
This is when storage units come into play for most people – it’s fairly reasonable that these can be a great place to keep all that stuff you never use, but for most of us they’re expensive options, especially considering you could avoid that cost while making better use of your home!
Why unlocking your attic is the answer
Most of us have perfectly sturdy and spacious attics that aren’t being used as they should be, and primarily it’s because they’re hard to access! Sure, you might even have an attic ladder that you use sometimes, but often these older versions don’t allow reliable access without compromise a lot of the space underneath the entrance – in 2018, this doesn’t have to be a problem.
FAKRO’s folding attic stairs are the best way to open up your attic space – they can be easily installed into the ceiling and don’t take up space beneath, and allow you to easily take anything you need stored up into your attic and clear the clutter from your garage, outdoor area or spare room.
Increase the value of your home!
Many people worry that attic stairs would be intrusive and affect the value of their home negatively, but in truth, FAKRO’s stairs are almost invisible when not being used, meaning that they won’t intrude upon your home at all. Potential homebuyers are always impressed by this kind of utility, and when it works in a way that doesn’t sacrifice enjoying the house on an everyday basis, they’ll almost certainly have a better impression of a home and will be willing to pay more for the property.
