Moving into a new house with your partner can be as quick as slipping on an engagement ring. You just got married and the next thing you know, you’re handed the set of keys to the house you pictured you’d spend the rest of your life in. What could go wrong?
It isn’t until a few years later that you’re expanding your family with the addition of a third newborn. You need more space for your growing family, and you’re not sure how to go about it next.
Home is where there’s space to live in
Most families would argue that it’s hard to resist new construction. Most families avoid the maintenance nightmares associated with renovation and go house-hunting instead. There is a recurring belief that renovation translates to making drastic changes to the previous property. But it can be as simple as adding a little extra to what your house already has.
Apart from the traditional methods of taking out walls and installing new ceilings, there are more creative approaches to creating an expansive new home. Looking at quality home improvement services can help make renovation a lot more practical. In Birmingham, there are conservatory design and installation services available to give your house a fresher, wider look. It’s a perfect way to fuse your house and garden plus it gives the kids more room to play.
Is the tiny house movement a lie?
Living in smaller spaces has appealed to young professionals on a tight budget. It’s better when the layout is simple and everything is seen right away. However, studies show that living in tiny spaces could result in psychological problems. Relaxing could be difficult if we’re subject to our four-walled room and lounge on a daily basis. More space means more freedom to think, and do what we want.
Most of the time, we can’t make our houses any bigger than they already are, unless we’re up for major renovations. But the trick to making any house look bigger is to make wise use of space to make our houses a better place to live in.
