If you have not yet come up with a scheme to jumpstart your project, perhaps these home additions and some space-saving living room renovation ideas might help you juice up your imagination.

  1. Staircase storage

Don’t congest your books and those things you like to hoard in a corner of your room. Instead, transform that dull and neglected space under your staircase into a bookshelf or a storage cabinet for a more organised look.


  1. Turn your hallways into storage


Another potential space you can convert into storage are those empty walls in the hallway. Make the most of this excess area by installing a built-in cabinets or wall-hooks where you can hang coats or jackets.


  1. A wine cellar in the basement

Are you a wine aficionado? You don’t have to stack your wine bottles on the kitchen counter, keep some in the fridge, or dedicate an entire room to store your wine collections. An aptly insulated corner in your basement would suffice to keep your vinos’ good flavour.


  1. An herb garden in your kitchen

You’d be surprised at how many types of culinary herbs you can grow indoor. So, if you love adding fresh herbs to your food, why not add a piece of greenery that will benefit your health and budget?  All you need is a wall illuminated by a window or skylight and some motivation to keep your little plants alive.


  1. Turn your outdoor space into a functional structure


Those spaces outside your home come with a lot of potential. You can build a pool, garage, or a garden.  But if what you’re after is an extension of your home and room for your growing family to get comfortable, then what about an outdoor structure such as sunroom, alfresco, or a patio.

Discover the Benefits of Home Additions

Do you think about setting out on a home renovation project but worry about the cost and inconvenience of the home renovation process? Here’s a little push to help you get through this quandary: while this venture is likely to involve investment in time and money, the end result outweighs the cost. Home additions come with a lot of benefits that you’ll reap for a long time.

Adds luxury

The idea of luxury is not feeling cramped, or crowded in a room. It would be odd to hang a huge deluxe chandelier in a cramped sleeping space where there’s hardly a room to illuminate. Home additions and expansions allow you to add lavish pieces such as a bathtub, his and her bathrooms, or a walk-in closet in the master’s bedroom.

Creates more living space

An extra space comes with a lot of potentials. In case you value practicality over luxury, you could turn your extra space into an office, garage, guest room or just an outdoor structure like a patio or an alfresco. The more space you have, the more room for your family to relax.

Increases the house’s resale value

Home renovation is a form of investment. For one, it increases your home’s resale value. So in case you decide to move in the future, you can sell your house at a price better than its original value.

Can house an extra family member

The most obvious benefit of a home addition is creating more space. You can turn space into bedrooms for a growing family or guest rooms for frequent visitors or extended family.

Home renovation is cheaper than moving

Rather than buying a new house, Hille’s your home renovation contractor can fashion your existing abode into your dream house. The price of a home makeover can be less expensive than selling and moving to a new home, and you get to stay in a neighbourhood you know and love.
