How to maximise space in your family home
If you’re like many parents, you probably find that you’re suffering from a severe lack of space in your home. This is such a common issue that families face. When you first moved into your house it was probably perfect for your needs. But when your family grows, your home can start to feel a little squashed. The problem is that with house prices rising, moving on to a bigger house can be impossible. So, what can you do? Here’s some of my top tips!
Add Some Smart Storage
There’s no denying that when you have kids, the amount of stuff in your home really grows. Sometimes it can feel like your home is bursting at the seams. When you need all this stuff, it can be tough to know what to do with it all. The answer lies in picking the very best storage. With the right storage solutions, you can quickly get your home back in order.
You may feel like you already have storage, but still feel your home is overwhelmed by stuff. In this case, you need to rethink your storage and get smart about the storage solutions you choose. Making the most of any areas of your home that can be used for storage is a must. This can include adding shelving and cupboard to alcoves, and choosing multi-tasking storage, such as beds with storage underneath. This will help you to maximise storage without encroaching on your floor space.
Increase Your Space
Adding an extension to your home may seem like the obvious way to increase your space. But, building a traditional extension can be super expensive. The process of building an extension can also be extremely disruptive to your home life. Even if a traditional extension is out of your budget, you don’t need to give up on having additional space.
An excellent alternative to the usual home extension is a modular extension. The great thing about modular extensions is that they’re precision manufactured off-site, and they’re often a lot cheaper than a traditional extension. This means that you don’t need to spend many months with your home in a state of disrepair while an extension is being built. Instead, the modular extension will be easily and quickly installed with very little disruption. So, this is an option to consider if you want to increase your home’s square footage.
Keep Up With Decluttering
Once you’ve worked on maximising the space in your home, it’s essential to keep up the good work. Clutter can creep up in your home so fast, especially when you have kids. So, it’s vital to keep on top of it. Regularly having a clear out of your rooms is a great way to keep your home super tidy and ensure that all your space is maximised.
