How To Give Your House That Much-Needed Spacious Feel


Make More Space At Home

The average house size has shrunk in recent years and in most family homes, rooms can feel squeezed for space. It’s enough to leave you tearing your hair out at times.

If this is a problem you currently face, you may not have the appetite to move somewhere bigger or the finances to extend, leaving you in a helpless situation, or so you may think.

You may just be able to get your home feeling roomy again if you take on-board Speedy’s sound advice:

Declutter

Finding the time to declutter can be difficult in a house with children, but it’s a job that’s worth doing as it will often free up lots of floor space.

Do it room-by-room and don’t hesitate to bag up things for donating or recycling that you know full well you’ll never use. For everything that’s left over, think about whether it can be stored more efficiently.

A rearranging of furniture e.g. sofa, beds, dining table, could also make a huge difference, so try out different configurations.

Aluminium windows

It’s vital that your home interior receives an abundance of natural light and your windows will be largely responsible for how much it gets.

If you were to exchange your old traditional windows for aluminium windows, you will be blown away by the extra volume of light that comes in, which will be down to their super-slim profile and big glass expanses.

Adding mirrors to some of your walls and painting these walls in a lighter colour will also help the sun bounce around the space.

Large glass door

It’s great to get out in the garden in summer and the fitting of a bi-folding door or sliding door in the wall that connects your home to your garden will invite you to do just that.

Both of these types of feature doors are made from aluminium and prioritise glass over framework, very much like aluminium windows.

Therefore, they’ll provide your indoor space with a huge injection of light and that applies when they’re open and closed.
