Are you beginning to feel that your house is less spacious? It’s not unusual for families to require more space in their houses after they have lived there for some time. It could be because your family has grown, or you have more items in the house than you did initially.
However, moving out to a bigger house is not necessarily the best option in such circumstances. Why don’t you try extending or gaining space in your current home? Depending on the size and shape of your block, there are different styles of home extensions that you may consider. Please continue reading for some of the most important things to consider when extending your house.
4 Ways To Add Space To Your Home
Adding space to your home can be an exciting process because you can add your own personal flair. Here are several ways through which you can add space to your home.
1). Create an Open Plan Living, Kitchen & Dining Area
The living room and kitchen are some of the areas you are most likely to need more space, especially if you are entertaining and hosting guests. Creating an open-plan space means that you have more space for entertaining and a more practical flow. Perhaps your living room could lead out to your outdoor area in order to create that ‘indoor outdoor’ feel.
2). Change Use Of Certain Rooms
The fact that a room was designed to be a dining room or bedroom does not mean that it must serve that purpose. For example, a rarely used bedroom could be transformed into a home office in order to free up more space in the rest of the house.
3). Natural Light
Never underestimate the importance of natural light. The lack of enough natural light in a room can make it feel smaller than it is. Therefore, incorporating large windows (and skylights, if appropriate) when doing an extension can make a space look and feel even more spacious and create that beautiful light-filled space.
4). Adding a Second Storey
If you have limited land size, then a second-storey addition may be your perfect answer (if regulations permit). Adding a second storey can allow you to have additional living spaces, bedrooms or bathrooms that you may require.
