“Your home is your castle,” as the saying goes. You want to live in a place you are excited to come home to, which is comfortable and a true haven for you and your family. Anything less than perfect, and you can become uncomfortable and stressed.
One common issue is a lack of space within your home. Having enough space is essential, otherwise you may find yourself anxious and unable to relax. Plus, if you have children, you’ll find that having the extra storage facilities for toys is crucial. Here are three ways to create more space in your home.
If your home has a basement, then you have access to a whole new floor for you to make use of, and while some people feel wary about converting a basement because the underground level makes them prone to issues such as damp, and you have unlimited potential with a basement conversion.
Before you plan your basement room, however, you will need to get advice to make sure it is structurally sound. Make sure to hire professionals so that they can discuss your options for remodeled basements. They will be able to coat the walls properly, as well as transform the basement into whatever room you wish for, be it a cinema room or an extra bedroom.
Attic spaces can be so much more than just a place to store your unwanted household items and heirlooms. In fact, an attic can become a study, a reading room or even an extra bedroom. While you may not want your children to play in the attic, when they become teenagers, it can be the perfect place for them to store their belongings or sleep. Include shelving units and units to keep your possessions, but also consider turning the attic into a large, stylish master bedroom with a skylight for beautiful mornings.
If you don’t have any options for adding space within your home, then how about creating new space outside? A garden room is more than having a shed for you to fill up and then abandon. In fact, you can get a cabin or even a granny annex, which can act as an extra living space or a place for you to convert into a study space.
For families, this can become the perfect summer house for children to play in, or if you have a teenager, a room for them to hang out for added independence.
People may think the easiest means of getting more space is to move, but this is rarely the case. Not only is moving expensive, but it is incredibly stressful for both adults and children. Rather than leave an area you love, and a house that is your forever home, find ways to extend and expand your current abode. Basement and attic conversions not only offer more space but also increase your curb appeal. Therefore, you do ever wish to sell, your asking price can increase, too.
