How to Add More Space to Your Home
If you’ve been in your home for a while, you may find that your home seems to be running out of space. It’s a common problem many families face, and is often a big reason people choose to move to a new place. If you feel like you’ve run out of room in your home, don’t start looking for a new house just yet. There are several things you can do to increase your home’s storage without having to plan a big move.
Declutter. One of the easiest ways to add more space in your home is to declutter. Over time, we can accumulate many different things. Make a plan to go through your existing items and donate them or host a yard sale in the summer.
Smarter storage. Proper storage can make a big difference in the way your home functions. Consider adding organizational systems to your closets and kitchen cabinets to maximize their functionality. Built-in cabinets and free-standing storage systems can also be added to make the best possible use of space.
Attic or basement conversion. If you have room in your attic or basement, consider converting the unused space into a functional living area. The basement is usually more spacious and easier to convert, but the attic is a great option too. If planning a big conversion, it’s best to hire a professional to make sure it is done properly.
Removing a wall. It may seem counter productive, but removing a wall could be beneficial to your home. If your home has separate, smaller rooms, it could be helpful to remove a non-load bearing wall to open up the space. This will make the area seem visually larger and may allow you to reorganize your home and make better use of your space.
Home addition. If your home has absolutely reached its full capacity, it may be time consider a home addition. An addition allows you to add more space while staying in your current house. Home additions require permitting and architectural plans. If you are considering a home addition, our team will help you design and build the perfect space for your home.
