You may love every corner of your home right now. But as your family continues to grow, it’s normal to feel like you’re running out of space. This usually becomes evident in the kitchen, dining room, and bathroom, as these spaces can easily start to feel cramped and overcrowded.
Don’t worry, moving to a bigger home isn’t your only option. You can remodel your current home in order to fit your growing family. Premier Quality Home Improvements, a trusted expert in home additions, shares some renovation tips that will help you with this goal.
Add more storage and entertaining space in your kitchen. With more family members gathering in this room for breakfast, dinner, and snacks, you would surely need more countertop space for everyone to eat comfortably together. Having sufficient storage for plates, utensils, and food is also important.
Of course, don’t just expand your kitchen for the sake of making it more spacious. Ensure that the space will have all the features you need and it’s suitable for how you normally use your kitchen. If you believe certain upgrades would benefit you, consult with your contractor to know how these can affect or influence your kitchen design.
Installing more storage in your bathroom is also ideal since you need to have space to fit toiletries, towels, and other bathroom essentials. If you only have one bath in your home, you might want to consider adding one or two more bathrooms, depending on the number of people in your household. This way, mornings can be a little less hectic since you and your family won’t have to fight over who gets to use the bathroom first.
Bathroom remodeling or additions are usually a significant project, so make sure to plan this out carefully. Also, take your time in choosing materials for fixtures, countertops, cabinets, flooring, storage, and tub and tile. If you have seniors living with you, you might want to have at least one bathroom that has safety and mobility features. Consider adjusting the size of countertops, switches, and sinks for better accessibility. If you still have toddlers or young children at home, there are certain features that you can add to your bathroom to make it safer for them too.
You can literally expand your home in order to have bigger living spaces or to build additional rooms. However you want to do it, make sure to consult with design/build professionals regarding your needs. With their expertise, they can help you identify the spaces in your home that you can maximize.
In-Law or Guest Suites
If you often find your in-laws or guests staying over at your home, having a bedroom suite for them would be nice to have. This way, they can feel at home and have some degree of privacy while they’re staying with you. In-law suites specifically are built to have universal design elements that ensure adaptability and accessibility. And if you want to maximize the room when it’s not in use, you can design it in a way that it will be some sort of dual-purpose room. Perhaps it can be a guest room and a home office. In this case, it might be best to invest in built-ins that will let you keep the office out of sight when your guests use the room.
