If things are getting crowded in the house and you’re looking to add space to your home, there are a few easy ways to better use the space you have. Remodeling projects that add space do not necessarily focus on building more space. Sometimes, you have space in your home you could take advantage of but haven’t yet. Here are some easy ways to consolidate clutter, reorganize the arrangement, and add space to your home where you didn’t know you had it.
Utilizing Basement Space
If your basement is a dark, dreary place you avoid unless you put away seasonal decorations, you are missing out on many livable spaces. Basement refinishing is one of the easiest ways to add more space to your home without changing the footprint of your home.
A full basement remodel could create a new level of living space. Imagine what you could do with all that room down there. Many people have been tapping into their basement space and creating more bedrooms, in-law suites, game rooms, dens, and more. According to Remodeling Magazine, about 13 million remodeling jobs began in 2018 at the cost of at least $1,000 or more. People are deciding to make the most of the homes they have. They are remodeling to customize their homes, and you can too.
At the opposite end of your home is another space that largely gets overlooked. You can add space to your home by remodeling or refitting your attic space. Remodeling your attic to make it more livable can be an easy project. You can turn the attic into the extra bedrooms that you need. If you are committed to adding more space and don’t mind a larger-scale project, you could change the shape of your roof, or add an addition on top of the existing space. Adding a level to your home will certainly increase the space in your home.
Additions and Add-Ons
Building off the back of your house is also an option. You can add square footage with an addition, but it will change the footprint of your home. A good remodeling company can make an addition look like it has always been a part of your house.
