Spatial Perceptions

The New York Times has an interesting article here on how people perceive space.  The article discusses how making minor changes can increase the perceived value of your apartment to potential buyers.  We are currently attempting to rent our old house, so this article was really pertinent to our situation.  I feel like the fact that we are renting lets us relax a little, though; it's still going to be our house so we don't have to make it absolutely perfect.  I like a little imperfection in my life and I'm getting quite skilled at it!

Here's the house that we put on the rental market last week.  It's a 3 bedroom/ 2 bath house in a historic area just north of our downtown.  This house was really our started home and we put a lot of work into it.  Let me know if you want to see some before and after photos.  The upper floor had been a large, barely finished, storage room and a bedroom with a plywood door.  We converted it to a Master Suite with a large bedroom, walk-in closet, and full bathroom.  That project took us about 3 years to complete and the only reason it was finished in 3 years and not 4 was because we had our son and I really needed a place to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night while pregnant!
