More space is something that homeowners are often seeking for a variety of reasons. Luckily, there are many ways to succeed when it comes to creating that extra bit of space in your property. Here are just a ways to give you some inspiration.
Modern ground floor extensions add more space to your home
Modern ground floor extensions are a popular option as they can completely transform your most-used spaces, providing an extra bit of practicality within your home. Particularly in the past two years, as a result of the pandemic, the desire for home offices and home gym projects have skyrocketed in popularity. A ground floor extension is the perfect way to add these additional spaces to your home.
Growing families can also see the need for extra spaces such as playrooms or family rooms. Open plan spaces are ideal for those wanting to easily keep an eye on their children.
Explore unused areas to create more space in your home
There may be areas of your home that you don’t even realise have the potential to be efficiently utilised in other ways. Some wall cavities can be perfect for creating an additional bit of storage. A recessed wall shelf can instantly open up a room or area of a property, cleverly taking advantage of the hollow nature of a wall cavity. Additionally, if your loft space does not have a specific use then looking into giving it a revitalised makeover or a conversion can open up a host of opportunities. A loft conversion can not only gain you extra space or a bedroom, but it can also add value to your home.
Make the most of your garden space
If you have a garden or outdoor space, then maximising its potential is a great way to squeeze out some more space. You might even be surprised at what you can do with your garden and the possibilities that come with it. Bikes are widely known to create some considerable clutter, but there are a number of alternatives to just keeping them inside. Sheds and specific storage units are simple additions for your garden to alleviate the internal bike storage issues. Generally-speaking, you can also integrate some social areas such as a gazebo, summerhouse or some simple seating.
Take a step back and organise your home to create more space
While it may sound simple, just taking the time to properly look into what you have in your house can seriously help on your quest for space. Looking at things that you haven’t used for a while or indeed have no use for anymore are easy places to start. The question will perhaps then boil down to sentimentality versus your need for space.
What can you do with all of your newfound space?
If you are able to successfully generate some extra space in your home, then you will suddenly have many more options available to you. Particularly if you have gone down the route of installing a modern extension, you can experiment with using your new space for whatever you might need. From a kids playroom, or a home gym, there is potential for whatever you can imagine. If you are looking at having a modern extension installed in your home, then paying a visit to your local showroom is always a great place to start.
