We live in a society where if something isn’t working then we immediately go out and buy a new one. This is a very throwaway culture and it is not beneficial for the environment and certainly not for the people around you. When people buy a property initially, they usually just buy for the circumstances at that time but as the years go by and their family starts to grow, then it seems apparent that the property that they invested in is not big enough. The automatic response is to sell up and to move to a much larger property but what if you love the area that you live in and what if the kids love going to school there.
This is a time when you need to talk to your Canberra home builders because these are the very professionals that can transform your home into something quite different that provides you with all of the new space that you need. If you’re not sure how this would work then the following are just some of the changes that you builder can make within your current property to provide you and your children with a lot more space to move around.
- Convert the attic space – You’ve never really thought about it before but the space above your head is your attic and it’s likely that you don’t even keep anything up there. This is a lot of space going to waste and it will definitely able to be turned into a large single bedroom or two smaller ones. All you need to do is to install a skylight and natural light will be streaming into this new room. The kids will probably fight over this new bedroom because they get to look at the stars at night before they nod off to sleep.
- Convert the garage – Many people don’t even use the garage to park the car and the vehicle is usually left in the drive over night. This means that the garage is used as a storage area or a laundry and this isn’t good utilisation of such a space. You probably have never pictured it before but the same garage can be turned into an additional bedroom for your teenager who has been crying out for their own space for a number of years now.
There are a lot of other ideas that can create more space around your home, so rather than moving out and selling up just take a moment to figure out what your home builder can create for you.
