Do you want more space in your home, without spending thousands on an extension? The good news is there are many ways to expand on what you have, while only spending very little. Most homes are getting smaller as the demand rises.
And, the cost of living is constantly going up. But, that doesn’t mean you can’t find a few smart ways to add space to your home. Not only will this make living more comfortable for you, but it will add value to your property. Take a look at these nifty ideas to expand your home on a tiny budget.
Build a Wooden Extension
Wood and glass are relatively cheap materials and can be used to build a small extension on your home. Make sure the ground is flat where the structure will be built and build the framework with salvaged wood. Add in windows and you have yourself a cool little outhouse to store equipment in, use as a hobby room or as an office.
Add a Mezzanine Level
Do you have high ceilings in your home? If so, then you can increase the useful space in your property by building up. A mezzanine level can be added in the living area and used as an office, extra living area or home gym. Talk with your local residential construction team, to see if a mezzanine is suitable for your building type.
Create an Outdoor Living Area
To get more space inside, it makes sense to spread the living area outside. If you already have a patio or decking, this can be decorated with waterproof furniture. For entertaining, get a BBQ ready and enjoy lazy evenings dining alfresco while the sun goes down.
Order a Flat Pack Shed
Residential sheds are ideal to increase livable space and add value to a property. A shed can be used as a granny flat, holiday home rental, a hobby room and to store equipment. Flat pack sheds are extremely affordable and are simple to put up coming with full installation instructions. Talk to AGS Commercial for the best flat pack sheds Lismore.
Use a Shade Sail to Increase the Useful Outdoor Space
Do you have a garden that is only used at certain times of year? While it’s great to use this space in some weather conditions, in others, it can become unusable. Protect yourself from the suns UV rays and from battering rain, with a customised shade sail. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes ad can be easily attached to a home, a wall or sturdy posts.
