If your family home is full to the brim and you’re looking for smart ways to add space to your place and ensure you all have more room to breathe, here are a few neat ideas you might want to consider:
Extend your Property
The most obvious way of adding space is by…well adding space in the form of a home extension. Good Residential Architects can do this in such a way that it not only gives you more room to live but also adds value to your property. Of course, it is not the most affordable option, and you will have to deal with some upheaval while the building work takes place. Still, it will give you at least one extra room, so it is well worth considering.
Enclose Your Patio
If you are looking for a cheaper option and you happen to have a patio in your backyard, something that you might want to consider doing is enclosing your patio. By doing this, you can make the outdoor space more usable, effectively turning it into an additional room, albeit one that is rather more weather-dependent than the rest.
Convert the Garage
Have a garage? Why not park the car on the drive and have a contractor come in and finish it so that it can be used as a playroom, office or hobby space? You might think the garage is cold and dark but that’s because its only purpose so far has been to house the car and other assorted junk; with a few simple modifications, it can be a warm welcoming space to spend some time.
Looking to make as much space in your home without spending a single penny? Could it be time you decluttered? It could be that you have more than enough space already, it’s just being masked by various pieces of junk that you don’t really need around. If that’s the case, not only will you need to spend a dime to get more space, but you could actually make a little cash by selling all of that stuff you don’t need around any longer.
Use Built-In Storage
In a similar vein, you may be able to create more space in your home simply by switching to better storage solutions. Instead of bi bulky storage units, use couches and beds with built-in storage, ottoman coffee tables and built-in wardrobes and you’ll soon see the amount of floor space in your home start to multiply.
Enclose the Porch
If you have a porch on your property, enclosing it with beautiful glass doors and windows is a great way to, not only create a beautiful new room on your property but also to create an amazing entrance space for greeting guests.
As you can see, there are lots of very simple ways you can create more space at home for your family. However, before you do any work, always consult a professional contractor and ensure that you have the right permits and permissions in place.
