Signs You Should Renovate/Extend a Room

A home shouldn't be just for living in, it should be a place where you have great experiences and where you spend time enjoying hobbies and activities in your own environment. To this end, it's not enough for your rooms to simply be spaces where you can store your things and crash on the couch - they should be spacious enough for you to enjoy any activities you might want to, and they should be well designed enough that you are proud to show guests round and have lots of things to do with them there.

But how do you know if you aren't getting the most out of your rooms? What are the signs you could be getting more? Here we will look at some little hints that maybe it's time for a renovation or extension.

There Are Things You Can't do Due to Size Restrictions

One of the first times I knew I needed a bigger room at my home was when I wanted to set up my own home gym but couldn't. There just wasn't space for a bench press in any of the rooms in my home and I had no floor space to do things like press ups and sit ups either.

If you lack the space you need for any activity that you would like to be able to do, then opening up the room more or designing it to make better use of the space is an important way to get more from your room and from life.

You Are Embarrassed to Show People Round

If you have ever had to refuse guests because you don't have space for them to stay in your room then you'll know how disappointing it is to have to miss out on your social activities because of limitations in your rooms. If this is the case, then look into extending the room or just designing it better and you can start to enjoy having people round again - even when you don't have much notice - in fact you might even want to start throwing dinner parties and events.

The Rooms Are Always Untidy

If you have a small room or one that is badly laid out then you might find that it often looks untidy or cluttered and that you get less use from it as a result. Simply opening the room up a bit more, or changing the layout can help you to keep it more organized by providing more space for your things and creating a better system and more storage to keep them tidy.

You Look Longingly at Other People's Homes

If you find yourself going to other people's homes and wishing they were yours, then you may just not be making the most of your current rooms. When it comes to property, it's not value that counts but what you do with it - if you were to completely overhaul your decorating and interior design, or if you were to create more space by knocking through your walls then you can turn your current property into your dream home right now.
