If you have a family, space at home can become a problem, even if you’re lucky enough to have a slightly bigger house than many people. Luckily, there are lots of (mostly) simple things you can do to create more space for your family to run, play and relax together in comfort…
Extend your property
Okay, so if you can afford it, by far, the most effective way to create more space in your home is by having someone like the Yes I Can renovation experts come in and design and extension for you. Doing so will not only add a space, but also value to your home, Of course, as well as being a real investment, it will mean that you’ll have the builders in for a but, so it’s not for everyone, but it’s definitely something worth considering if your love your home but your family are starting to outgrow it a little.
Looking for a less drastic means to create more space in your home? The obvious place to start is by getting rid of all that stuff you’ve accumulated over the years that you neither want, need or love. The average family has tons of stuff they don’t really need, and by getting rid of it, you can easily free up masses of space for use in more practical ways. If you find it hard to get started, open the nearest drawer and just organise that. Once you’ve built up enough momentum to get going, you’ll find that it’s much easier to keep decluttering.
Move the furniture around
Another really simple way of potentially creating more space in your home is to play around with the placement of your furniture. It’s surprising how often moving the couch 45 degrees or putting the table against the wall instead of at the centre of the room can make a huge difference to the available space in your home. Play around and see what you can do.
Build an outbuilding
If you have outdoor space that you aren’t taking full advantage of, building a summer house or shed that you can use as an extra room is a great way to add space quickly., These days you can buy ready -assembled sheds, summer houses and outbuildings that take very little effort to install and which can be moved around with ease, These are ideal for the growing and changing needs of family life, and they can offer you a quite little sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of family life whenever you need a break. What’s not to love?
Use hidden storage
Hidden storage space is ideal for hiding away all of those things that you do need to keep around, but which would take up too much space if left out. Things like hollow ottomans, under bed storage and bathroom cabinets located under the sink will hide your stuff away, help you to maximise your space and ensure you have what you need when you need it.
