Creating space and adding value in a lounge

At CPS Homes, we recently visited a house where the tenants told us the lounge of the property they were renting felt small/clustered and they could do with a dining table - something which is becoming more and more popular with students and can give one's house a significant market advantage over others.

Having assessed the set-up of the room and the space available, we made contact with our landlord client and suggested moving the radiator from one side of the room to the other, then providing a fitted corner sofa and TV on the wall that it's currently on. This freed up space for a dining table to go on the same wall as the newly-located radiator.

Having explained that the new set-up could add up to £15 in rent per tenant per month, our client was in agreement with our suggestions and is completing the necessary work during the empty period over the summer.

Below is an image of the lounge in question and an 'after' image of a different property with the same set-up as we suggested.
