Do you have a growing family? Members of the family moving back into the house? Do you require more space for the new furniture that you just bought? You can’t just go and buy a new home for any of these reasons. Fortunately, small house owners are in luck! There are many ways to create a bigger space to meet your family’s needs with these home renovations.
1. Remove the Walls
Most old homes are just built wrong. There are so many rooms but with so little space in them. One way to make more space is to knock down a wall or two. For instance, if the living room is very small and the dining room next to it is unnecessarily large, double them up by removing wall separating them.
2. Use The Yard
The Inside of a house is not the only space that can be used for expansion. There are many houses that come with with large yards. If a family is short on some lounging space, then a yard is just the thing you need. All it needs is some flooring and some recliners to create an excellent outdoor living room. Adding a door on the side can be used to connect both the spaces.
3. Get Creative With Storage Spaces
Storage spaces take half of the living spaces away from the home residents. If a house is small, then the better approach would be to build storage spaces instead of getting furniture. Wall shelves and cupboards under the stairs not only take less space but also give an aesthetic appeal to the house, and are a simple home renovation idea.
4. Install Skylights
Brighten up a cramped up room by installing skylights to make the room look more spacious and roomy. With customized home renovation services, it is easier to install skylights in any room of the house.
5. Fix Mirrors On The Wall
Pretty sure all of us know about this trick but have we ever tried it? A room with one wall covered in a mirror makes it look twice its size. So if your kids are complaining about getting a stuffy room, try this trick and see them fall in love with it.
6. Large Windows
Large windows that cover the entire wall can help you attain that feeling of openness. These glass covered walls not only make the rooms look bigger but also make it feel like you are living outdoors. All the light and open space can work wonders for the outlook of your house.
The embarrassment of finding a sitting place for guests can only be understood by small house owners. Even when all the guests manage to be seated, the room still seems overcrowded. A raised hearth is the magic word to avoid situations like these. A raised hearth doesn’t take any extra space away, provides a good decorative option and is a beautiful home renovation idea. Just add a few cushions on the hearth and you have a solution to your dilemma.
