Home expansion can be a challenge and if you decide to expand your home in any way, always consult with a contractor before you set your mind on anything. When most people think of expanding their home, they automatically think of adding a new room to the house and going beyond the foot print of their house. Though it’s nice to add that extra room inside, by pushing you’re addition outside the boundaries of your homes foundation, you decrease the amount of space outside of your home. Consider ways to expand your home without going beyond the footprint of your home.
For example, let’s say you’re dining room and you’re den are separated by one wall. Removing the wall that separates the two can expand your dining room, adding more space for those big holiday meals. Or maybe you’re kitchen and you’re living room are separated by a wall and a door way. You can easily knock out the wall and door way which will open up the area, making your home feel much bigger on the inside. You would be simply removing a barrier between two separated rooms, giving the visual effect of expansion without going beyond you’re homes footprint. When a wall separates two rooms, you feel enclosed, with less room to move. By simply removing the wall, you remove the feeling of being enclosed. Even though you are only gaining an extra three or four inches by removing the wall, you feel as though you have gained an entire room.
There are other ways to expand your home without taking you beyond you’re homes foundation that can give you some extra living space as well. You can close in your carport or screen porch. A quality contractor will know how to close in and insolate either, leaving you with more living space. You could also consider expanding your attic if you have one or add an attic as an addition to your house. You may also choose to expand your basement if you have one. If you’re home does not have an existing basement, adding a basement is a great way to expand your house. There are many ways to expand your home, with in the footprint and beyond. Consult with your contractor about your home expansion ideas.
