The 5 Best Ways To Add Space To Your Home



What was once a cozy home has grown into a cramped space for all of you. No, that’s not the problem. It hasn’t grown at all but your family has. You need more space and you don’t know what the best way to gain some extra space in your home is. House additions in Lancaster County are a great way to expand your square footage and add value to your home as well. There are lots of ways to enlarge your home or make the best use of the area that you already have.

Let’s take a look at the top five ways to add more space to your home.


Home Addition

Home additions are the number one way in Lancaster County to increase living space and the value of your home. Adding on to your home is a great way to add any room or even multiple rooms at once. If the lot you live on is large enough for you to expand outward, you can add bedrooms, bathrooms, a family room, or a sunroom. Because it will be built as a whole new space, you won’t be restricted to the area that you already have like you will with a renovation. The creative options are endless.

Add a Second Story

If you can’t build out, build up. Many people don’t even realize that they can add a second story to their home. If you simply don’t have the space, or the space you have isn’t compatible with an addition, a second story could be the answer to your problem. Second story additions afford you the luxury of endless options just like adding on does. You don’t just have the choice of bedrooms or bathrooms but adding a playroom, family room, and guest quarters are all popular ways to create an awesome second story.

Attic Conversion

Attic conversions are quick and easy. Your options are a little more limited given the fact that most attics have slanted ceilings and HVAC to deal with, but attic conversions are a great choice if you just need a little more space. Bedrooms, offices, and guest rooms are all popular attic conversion ideas.

Converting a Room

Lastly, if you don’t have room above, under, or around your home to add onto or convert, you can still achieve your goal of more space my simply utilizing the space you have in a creative way. Converting a room you have into another bedroom, bathroom, or family room can fit your needs and your budget. Opening up a wall to make a large family room or closing in a seldom-used porch can make your home comfortable again.
