Have you got spaces in your home that you don’t use as much as you should? Your home is your haven, and you should make as much use of it as possible. Too often we end up with junk rooms and spaces that barely get any use. Getting to grips with these spaces could be just what you need to transform your home. With a little thought, you could double the usable space available to you. Who wouldn’t want that? We’re going to look at a few of the most common unused spaces. This list should show you a few of the options open to you!
The spare room is a space that is rarely made proper use of. That seems such a waste when you consider how much a part of your home that room could be. Too often, though, the spare room becomes the place of all those things that don’t fit anywhere else. Either that or it becomes the place designated for guests that never come. Change the habit by turning your spare room into space you can use. What you choose to change the space into depends on your needs. Why not scrap that unslept-in bed and replace it with a desk? A study will always come in handy. Or, you could turn the space into a library or crafting room. If you’re worried about guests, you can always include a sofa bed. That way, you can tuck it away when you don’t need it!
That conservatory may have seemed like a good idea when the sun was shining, but it’s no good during winter. The good news is that with a few additions, you can make the most of your conservatory all year round. The first thing to tackle is the problem of heat. All conservatories can get cold in the winter unless you take steps to stop that. There are various options open to you, depending on how much you want to spend. You could install roof heating, like Guardian Warm Roof. Or, you could install underfloor heating instead. If you don’t want to do anything quite so drastic, an electric radiator will do the job of heating the room. Just remember to turn it on to heat up beforehand!
The garage is another place that tends to become a dumping ground for the things you don’t need. Even so, it’s a room that could be a real addition to your house if you let it! If you park your car there, your options are limited. If not, get to work! There are many options when it comes to your garage. You could turn it into a home gym, a bar or another room for your home. Having a self-contained room outside your house will do great things to the value of your home! Bear in mind that you will need planning permission before you get building. Do your research to ensure you know what choices are open to you.
