If you own your own house, you likely want more space. It seems no matter how big or small our families are, we always need more room. Whether it's another bedroom or storage space, there are always enough people and enough stuff to fill a house to the brim. But before you start looking through colonial house plans on a mission to build a bigger home, perhaps you should take a step back and look at your existing space. While building a bigger house would certainly solve your space problems, it would also be a big commitment to make monetarily. And with the economy the way it is, it might not be the best idea to increase your expenses. Instead, there may be space hidden throughout your house that you never realized was there.
Another way to find extra space in your house is to maximize the space you already have. Putting up shelves in the garage is a great way to create storage you never thought you had. The space under the stairs is another overlooked place. Sure, it's oddly-shaped, but so are a lot of things that you store. With a little creativity, this can be a great place to store bulky items. Another alternative to drawing up southern living home plans and selling your current house is to build a shed. For a fraction of what a new house costs you can have a place for your lawn and garden equipment, patio furniture, and whatever else you can think of. A shed is also a great place to put your tools, a workbench, and extra building material. You save a ton of space and if you build your shed in the same style as your house, it looks great, too!
Hiding In the Family Room. It might be game central or a working den, but this area is full of secret possibilities. Cabinets aren't just for kitchens anymore. When two counters meet in a corner, you have a nice niche for books, framed photos and favorite collectibles. Underneath, cabinets provide plenty of space, but don't overlook that empty corner between their shelving. All it needs is a round rotating shelf behind a small fold-out door, and you have concealed storage tucked in the corner. Remodeling the family room with custom cabinetry lets you enjoy warm wood tones or decorate with bold colors. It's also a chance to sneak in a mini fridge cleverly hidden behind a cabinet door. Re-purposing a closet as your desk area lets you close up the office at the end of the day. Your family room is full of expanding ideas in disguise.
