Think Your Home Is Too Small? Here Are Some Ways To Add More Space

If you think your home is too small but aren’t ready to move to a different property yet, then it might help to renovate. From adding another floor to the house to clearing out your basement, there are probably lots of different ways that you can utilise all of the floor space in your home. So in this post, we’ll take a look at some practical and meaningful ways to add more livable spaces to your home.

Make use of your loft
Perhaps one of the easiest ways to add more livable space to your home is to transform your loft into something. You could consider something like a dormer loft conversion or a rooflight loft conversion. There are many different ways to transform your loft into a livable space, but it really depends on your budget, building permissions, and what you plan to do with the space. It’s best to speak with a licensed loft conversion contractor to see what your options are. Once you get a loft conversion, you’ll have plenty of extra space to use. You could turn it into a living room, a storage area, or even a playroom for your children. It’s surprisingly versatile, but can be a costly investment in your home. It’ll certainly add more value and functionality to your house, but the project can take a bit of time to complete.

Transform your basement
Basements aren’t that common in wet climates such as the United Kingdom, but that doesn’t mean it’s an impossible project! If you have some kind of basement then it could be transformed into a large living space. Alternatively, if the conditions allow for it, then you could also carve out a basement. This is an expensive project, but it’s one of the more unique and interesting ways to create more living space for your home. However, we wouldn’t recommend this if you plan to move away in the future. If you’ve settled on a home and don’t plan to move for a good few decades, then it’s certainly something you should consider. Basements can give you an incredible amount of space, and they’re extremely useful for everything from storage to living spaces.

Add more storage to your home and make good use of it
Adding more storage means you can organise your home better and store away things that you don’t need. It’s a simple yet effective means of making your home a little more comfy and spacious. Storage solutions don’t have to be inside your home either. You could convert a part of your garage into a storage section, or you could even have a separate shed that you use to store seasonal items that you don’t need. If you already have a lot of storage space then it's a good idea to try and make full use of it. However, if you’ve maxed out all of your storage spaces, then the next best thing is to start selling unwanted items or consider a third-party storage solution.
