Is your family growing? Does your house no longer fit the remit? If so, these three ways to add more space to your luxurious home could be beneficial to you.
When we shop for a home, we look for all the things that we need there and then. We shop for a house in the now, in the present, buying what we need. Some of us do think ahead and buy what we will need in the future, but most of us just pay for the house we need at the time.
Now imagine that you spent 200,000 on a house only to find out you are unexpectedly pregnant. All of a sudden, the house that you purchased doesn’t have enough rooms. The spare space you thought you had is suddenly taken up by cots, prams, and baby clothing. That games room you envisioned becomes a dream, a thing of the past… unless you know how to add more space to your home.
The 3 Luxurious Ways to Upgrade Your Living Space
If your goal is to give yourself and your family more space, then these three luxurious ways to achieve it should help.
1. Use Your Garden
There are lots of ways you can use your garden and exterior spaces to give yourself additional room. Before Covid, many of us didn’t appreciate our outdoor space. Ever since the pandemic left some of us confined to home, we have come to appreciate how much our gardens mean to us.
Your garden is an extension of your indoor space. That means you can adapt it however you live to give yourself more space. There are several ways to do this. You can add a BBQ, put a firepit in, add a shed, greenhouse, or gazebo, or add a whole new room.
We favour the placement of high end outdoor furniture to give yourself a second living room or new kitchen surrounding your BBQ.
2. Build Outwards
We mentioned a room addition without thoroughly exploring the concept. A room addition in the garden could come as a stand alone pool house, or studio. You might decide on one which doesn’t require planning permission in some countries and opt for a conservatory, instead. You can even add a room on the second storey of your house. A room above the garage is a popular example.
As if you needed more reason to build a room addition in your garden, there is always the fact that it adds to the resale value of your home. A double bedroom could add as much as 23% to the overall value of your house. This is great if you intend to resell your property down the line.
3. Redesign Rooms
Your kitchen might be the heart of the home, but that doesn’t mean your heart beats properly. A kitchen that is badly designed will cost you space. Do you really need that island or was it just fashionable at the time of installation? Redesigning your rooms may cost slightly more than upgrading your gadgets, but it will pay off in terms of space. These free layout plans may help.
Try it for yourself. You will soon be redesigning every room of the house.
