Rather than buy a bigger home, you would rather remain in your current property and add more space through home remodeling. How do you go about doing so? The key is to pinpoint unused areas of your residence and work with experienced remodeling experts. Here are some ideas to add more useful square footage to your property.
Rather than use your existing garage as a storage area, make the most of the space with a custom remodel. Garages easily convert to spare bedrooms, entertainment areas and office spaces. If you currently use your garage as a dedicated space to park your vehicles, consider adding a level above the garage for entertaining, working or housing guests and relatives.
Rather than a garage, you may have an attic you use for storage. Depending on the size of the space, you could convert it to a den or another functional living space. If you need more space for an expanding family, attics can turn into bedrooms. Or, you may set up a home theater, office or study space in your attic. Consider ventilation with your home remodeling idea, as you want to be comfortable while enjoying your new addition.
Do you have a mostly unused basement space? Rather than store old furniture, holiday decorations and broken appliances in the basement, you can convert it to a space that you actually use regularly. Talk to experienced remodeling professionals in your area about turning your residence’s lower level into an in-law suite or a dedicated playing space for your kids. Want to make some extra income? You can remodel your basement into a nice rental apartment. Basements do not have to be dark and dank living spaces. The right contractor can turn your basement into a highly desirable living space.
Use every inch of your home to its full potential. The right home remodeling job can make you feel like you moved into a new property.
