Knock Through The Interior Walls
Sometimes it feels like the layout of your home is all wrong and that is why it feels smaller. Perhaps you have a small kitchen and a small dining room for example? By knocking through the internal wall you can create a large and spacious kitchen diner. If you can add glass windows or doors that allow you to look out at the garden, this will make the room look and feel even more spacious.
Creating a total open-plan space for the downstairs of a home is extremely popular among many homeowners. This is also a great home improvement for adding value to your home. If you have a modern family lifestyle, this is the perfect way of adding space to your home. It allows you all to cook and eat, as well as relax and entertain all in the same large space. If you have a corridor to your kitchen, make sure this is removed too. For this space to work you need to have a completely open-plan area, not hallways to an open plan area.
If the thought of a completely open-plan area in the downstairs of your home makes you nervous, why not consider sliding pocket doors or bi-fold doors between rooms? This way you can have the open space when you need it, but close the rooms as and when you choose.
A Separate Utility Room
A utility room can really add value to your home but also space in your kitchen. White goods such as washing machines and tumble driers can be noisy. When you are preparing dinner while helping the children with their homework; the washing machine going off can create a stressful atmosphere for everyone.
If you have a large kitchen a simple stud wall can create the perfect utility room for your home. However, if space is tight why not consider converting the cupboard in the hallway or the area under the stairs? Ventilation in the room is important, but windows and doors aren’t essential.
