Where are we going to put everything? That's a common question when looking at buying a new home that doesn't have adequate storage or space. People love their stuff but hate clutter. It's a problem that is best solved at the design stage.
As the population ages and home sizes trend smaller, storage space becomes infinitely more important when designing a new home or home addition. Even if you don't see the need personally, it's best to keep your home's resale value in mind.
People love to save! And over time, people's stuff accumulates and they grow more attached. They won't buy a home without the storage space they need.
