Open Space in Home:
Add Space Without Adding an Inch
If you’re looking at the existing square footage in your home wondering how the footprint can seem so large yet still seem as though you don’t have enough room for everything you need for it to function properly, you’re probably thinking that an addition is in your future. Fortunately, you may be able to find the perfect solution right under your nose…or right under your roof, all without adding an extra square foot of space.
Function and Flow
So often, the open space in home floor plans can be reconfigured to make more sense so that it’s actually functional, rather than being wasted space that leaves you feeling frustrated and oddly cramped in a home that should, in all actuality, be large enough to comfortably accommodate your lifestyle. Think about your needs and look at each room in your home objectively: which areas do you actually use, and which could you live without? Is the placement of the powder room getting in the way of the storage space you need? Is that formal dining room doing its job, or has it become the default catch-all for clutter and everything you don’t know what to do with?
Adding It All Up
As you consider the ways that you live in your home, consult with a custom remodeling contractor, home remodeling contractor, or a custom home builder with experience in custom home remodeling; they’ll be able to advise you on changes that you can make to your existing floor plan so that the costly work of making an addition to your house can be avoided. Remodeling your home within the framework you already own will save time and money, and you’ll gain an immeasurable amount of usability from making those adjustments. You may very well even end up with more rooms, more light, better flow, and much more storage than you ever imagined possible.
Whether your home is outdated, no longer your style, or simply not meeting your needs functionally, it’s important to realize that you have options that won’t require the costly investment of an addition. By remodeling your home, you’re taking advantage of its true potential—after all, shouldn’t every square foot suit your needs and serve a purpose? Take down walls and shift the floor plan so that you can reclaim your excess space; redesign the kitchen so that it becomes the stuff of a chef’s dreams and can accommodate your need for prep space and storage; add windows where the light seems lackluster; or eliminate choppy rooms that interrupt the flow and function of your most-used areas.
