Creating some more room within your home shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg, and it shouldn’t turn your home into an ever-revolving worksite. It should be something you can plan and budget for, fairly simply, and it should give you the results you want from the expense. You should love your home and all of its new space after the work is over and done with. So with that in mind, here are the best solutions for creating some more room in your property.
A Rear Extension
Adding a rear extension onto your house is one of the best ways to create some additional room, simply because you’re expanding into space that’s already there without having to make too many changes. Your garden is prime for expanding into, and there are quite a few extensions here you have the chance to think about.
One of the main ones is building a sunroom. And despite the name, a sunroom isn’t just for summer! These can be designed with all four seasons in mind and can be used as an extra living space, and extra dining space, or as a studio or home gym. Of course, the sunroom extension cost can vary, usually between £10,500 and £72,000, but it adds a lot of value and can be used all year round when set up correctly.
A Loft Extension
A loft extension is one of the cheapest yet most effective ways to create an additional room in your home. It can be used for a variety of purposes and ensures you won’t have to add anything to the existing structure of your property. That makes this an extension project that’s very easy to work with.
If you’re worried your loft/attic is a bit small, a Velux loft conversion will create a lot more headroom, meaning it’s a great way to add another bedroom to your property. Of course, a Velux loft conversion also comes with a variable price tag, with the starting point at £28,000 per project. The number of windows you’ll add to your property, as well as your home’s roof size, will dictate how much that number goes up.
More Storage Areas
You can also think about creating more storage areas inside your home. Via the use of multi-purpose furniture, as well as built-in or convenient storage, you’ll be able to declutter the floor and really open your home up.
Adding more shelves into the wall, using that space under the stairs to build in a storage unit, using a sofa bed for both casual use and at bedtime, etc., are all great ways to create additional room in your home. They’re cheap to invest in, compared to the other options on this list, and are great starter projects if you’re interested in renovating your home further.
Creating an additional room in your home should be done with your lifestyle in mind. The above options add room and value, and most importantly, they’re doable!
