Most homes have at least one space that is not used for living. Luckily, most of the time, these spaces are able to be converted so that they are useful living spaces. This allows people to expand their homes without having to move. If you have been thinking you need more space in your home, why not do a little remodeling and utilize unutilized space to make more livable space for you and your family?
People grow attached to their homes. How could you not when so much time is spent there? But at some points, your beloved home can start to feel too small for your needs. When this inadequacy and dissatisfaction begins to happen, our team at Orange Contracting is here to help! We are here to help expand your living space and give you alternative options to moving.
There is no need to move out of your beloved home, rest assured. Even when you have a growing family and need more space than you think you have, there are always solutions you can try before making the big decision to relocate entirely. One major option you have is to optimize unutilized areas that allow the living space to increase. Here are some examples of spaces you can transform with a simple remodel in order to add more comfort to your home.
Basements tend to get used exclusively for storage. And that might be great to get rid of some clutter, but that means that the space is not being properly utilized as a living space. Depending on what your needs are for adding more space to your home, a renovation contractor can work with you to come up with the best way to transform the space. It could be turned into a play area, a home gym, an in-law suite, or a rental apartment that will bring your extra money, etc. There are so many possibilities, it’s virtually endless!
This isn’t as popular now, with newer home builds, but some homes have usable attic space. A lot of people use this for storage as well, but with a little remodeling, you can turn it into a functional space. This is great if you need an extra bedroom. If it’s big enough, you might also be able to add another bathroom as well. If you’re looking to add something a little different and cool to your home, you can turn it into a home theater, or an office, or maybe even a library.
Is your garage filled with holiday decorations and boxes and not even used for your vehicle? If this is the case, it can be the perfect space you need to add more space to your house. It’s the perfect place to make a man cave, living room, office space, or bedroom. Or perhaps, if your garage doesn’t have a level above it, you can add a second level as well as convert it into something more usable. This will give you double the additional space you are looking for!
