Tips To Add Space To Your Home

Tips To Add Space To Your Home

The main thing that most homes lack is space. For some reason, there is never enough space no matter what property you buy. Your family grows and gets bigger, and suddenly you feel as if you are living in a shoe box.

There are ways to make your home bigger, however, so you don’t have to live under each other’s feet. Plus, these options are also available to almost every homeowner. That means regardless of your situation, there are always a few choices you can make.

Spare Room

Most spare rooms are just that; spare. That means there is a room full of potential and space that goes unused while you and your family continue to get in each other’s way. If you need a place to get away from it all, you can convert it into a room for you and your partner. Or, a game’s room for your kids so you can have the living room all to yourself. Better yet, you can convert it into a second bathroom for the whole house to enjoy!

Attic/Basement

Maybe you don’t have the luxury of a spare room. To be honest, some homeowners don’t. What almost every homeowner has is an attic or a basement. But, they are full of clothes and old rubbish that you only use once a year. You know, like the Christmas decorations. Instead of using it as storage space, add an extra room to your house. Converting an attic or basement isn’t easy because they need a bit of renovating. They don’t come ready made like a spare room. But, the effort is well worth it when it’s completed.

Conservatory

Conservatories are great because you don’t need much to install one. With some extra space and a building permit, you could have a new conservatory in no time. However, getting the permit can be hard work. And, some homes don’t have space in their garden or backyards. There are alternative conservatories, though, like a lean to conservatory. A lean to does not need the same amount of space or permit because it takes up far less room. Now you know your options, a conservatory is a great way to extend the size of your property.

Extension

An extension is like a conservatory in many ways. The main difference is that an extension is added to a room to make it bigger. It is not a separate entity. If you have room to extend your property externally, it is the best option. You can also do it internally and knock through walls to make rooms bigger.

Garage

Using your garage for more room is dependent on your needs. People who live in the city love a garage because they cannot park anywhere else. Trying to get a parking space is a nightmare! But, if you can park and don’t need the garage, you can change it into whatever you need. If it attaches to the property, you can even knock through the wall for a garage conversion.

Maximising any extra space is always going to take a lot of effort. But, there are a lot of rewards, especially when you are not running into one another.
