Even a home with a lot of living space can begin to feel small as the family living in it grows. It is very common for a family to feel they have "outgrown" a property and then look to move to solve the issue, which can be expensive of course. There are ways however, to get the most function and value out of our existing homes before deciding to jump ship.
Traditionally there are a number of popular ways to expand and develop properties to add extra space. These include extensions, house conversions
(like the loft and attic) and conservatories. None of these come without a large budget and can also require the hassle of planning permission.
Good internal design and efficient use of storage space within your property can obviously improve the amount of physical space you have but also the perception of space too. The ideal goal is to create multifunctional living spaces, spaces which can be transformed easily and meet the growing demands of modern life.Try Something New And Innovative
A quick look online these days will show businesses who have innovative, cost effective products which can transform bedrooms into a multifunctional room. For example, imagine, at the push of a button the bed could glide into the wall or ceiling by using an electronic pulley system. Creating instant space.
As you can imagine, this expands the possible functions of the room instantly. In the daytime it could be a play area for the kids or a gym for the grown-ups. It could also be a home office.
With the bed no longer permanently taking up space in the room, there could now be the possibility of having built-in cupboards fitted to one wall to give much needed storage space to keep the room tidy and clutter free. If the room is to be used as an office then even a desk could perhaps be built into the cupboard structure as a fold-out so it doesn't take up space when not being used.
In this day and age, especially with working from home becoming an increasingly popular possibility and reality, extra space in the home will be a premium commodity. Naturally to get your rooms in order you may require some building works
and alterations to your home, either cosmetic or structural. If that's the case you're best bet is to get the builders in.
Expert advice from professional builders and tradesmen in accordance with your budget could help you easily decide which course of action is best for you to take when looking to maximise your space at home.
