In previous times, it was common to sell a house and buy a more suitable one if you had outgrown the house or it was no longer suitable for your requirements. With the slump in the property market, more and more people are deciding to stick with the home they already have and make improvements to it, whether that is fitting it out with more modern equipment, specialist furniture or carrying out building work.
If you have outgrown your current home but want to improve what you already have, rather than move, then one option is to build an extension or convert empty roof space. It can increase the size of your area substantially, but it is quite an expensive and time-consuming option.
Another option is opting for furniture that is made to measure or, even better, custom designed. Custom furniture Adelaide doesn’t have to be “ready-made”. Free standing custom made furniture can also make excellent use of limited space. Free standing furniture has the advantage that, should you end up moving house further down the line, you can take the furniture with you.
The advantage of made to measure furniture is that units can fit exactly into a designated space so that no storage space is wasted. If a room has small proportions, then made to measure furniture can be made slightly less thick than traditional furniture, giving the room a more spacious feel. To make the most of the potential storage space, furniture that goes right up to the roof makes use of as much storage space as possible, while using minimal precious floor area.
There are many space saving furniture items available, from fold down tables and sofa beds.
Custom made furniture can include a wider variety of space-saving tricks and, being made to exact dimensions, will fit in the room perfectly. Custom furniture Adelaide could include folding down seating or beds that fold down, as well as multifunctional pieces of furniture such as tables with drawers and shelves or a desk that pulls out of another unit.
To use space efficiently, it is best to have an entirely bespoke interior, both designed and built to incorporate the most efficient solutions to the space available, as well as the lifestyle of the person and owners.
Depending on the budget and amount of time you have, there are many options available to increase the space available in the house you already have.
