From extensive to minor building work and savvy storage solutions, there are a number of ways to create more space in your home. Not only is 2019 the year of the smart home but it’s also the year of sustainability, i.e. less is more. The less clutter you have, the more space you are able to make. However, we know it’s not always that easy.
Put your attic to good use
Making the most of your loft is the ultimate way of creating more space. If you haven’t already, it may be time to consider a conversion. Whilst this may seem costly, compared to the cost and hassle of upsizing, it’s definitely a favourable option.
If you go ahead with converting your loft, you’ll need a roofing specialist for the work. Findleys, Yorkshire, are a Leeds based roofing company that deliver all the knowhow and proficiency required to create a new space at the top of your home. This means you can undertake an efficient and convenient conversion in no time, whether it’s an additional bedroom, playroom, or office space you’re after.
If you already have a loft conversion but are dissatisfied with the amount of space, a box former is the perfect solution that will transform the entire feel of your loft. It’s an especially useful addition if you wish to add stairs or bathroom to the loft.
Consider an extension
A ground storey extension can completely transform the dynamic of your home and you will be amazed at the difference that one extra room can make. You can use the space as an additional living area, dining room, kitchen extension, playroom or even a man cave.
Go for a garage conversion
Garage conversions are a popular choice for homeowners who require extra living space but don’t want to move. Converting a garage is the ultimate way to create a unique living area in your garage, tailored perfectly to your needs. You are able to benefit from a very individual space that is wholly appropriate for whatever purpose you desire.
Think outside the box
Adding an enclosed porch is another handy way of adding space to your home. If your front door opens directly into your living room, this can prove to be a particularly useful internal cushion to the elements outside. It can also really help to make a small hallway feel much more spacious.
For some years now, orangeries have been associated with wealth and prestige. With classic architectural layouts, orangeries are found in many properties from the Victorian era. A tailor-made orangerie will provide the extra living space sought after whilst retaining a timeless look and feel. The perfect balance between an extension and conservatory, oranges often boast a solid roof and walls, complete with a glazed roof lantern. They are also much more efficiently insulated than a conservatory, which is why it is easier to control the temperature – meaning there is no need to worry about higher heating bills.
