Need More Space? How to Use What You’ve Got Rather than Moving

When you need more space to accommodate a growing family, your first thought might be to move! But, consider adding an addition to your home to get the space and design you crave!

Remodeling your home to create more space is at the top of many homeowners’ lists. Here are some tips from RemodelWerks on where to start when remodeling your home to create more space for you and your family to enjoy for years to come:

Bust out a wall! Removing just one wall in your home has a big impact on creating a more spacious look and feel to an older home. Also, it helps reduce foot traffic issues that can be problematic in single spaces with a lot of visitors, like in the kitchen for instance. By opening up a wall between the kitchen and dining room or kitchen living room, you’re better able to manage foot traffic bottlenecks!

Keep in mind that whenever you’re doing demolition to a wall in your home, call in an experienced team of professionals like RemodelWerks to assess and execute the job. It’s important to factor in whether it’s a load-bearing wall and to move any electrical or plumbing lines to ensure the safety and success of the entire project.

Invest in custom cabinetry. From built-in shelving units and bookcases to window seats with storage underneath, RemodelWerks can help you customize storage solutions for your home with artfully crafted custom cabinetry and shelving that can help de-clutter an otherwise overloaded space.

Only hire a reputable contractor for your home remodeling needs. Whether you’re looking to add some built-in shelving, redo a kitchen by creating a pass-through to the dining area or want to take the plunge and give your home a new addition or whole-house renovation, it’s important to check the credentials of any home remodeling and construction contractor you hire. Check out their work, get references, and double check that they have the necessary license(s), such as a construction supervisor’s license.
