Want a home that feels big? Here are some ideas to keep in mind when building your new home.
Multipurpose rooms. Dining rooms and guest rooms, which are used sparingly, are spaces that can serve more than one purpose. For example, use the guest room as an office space when guests are not visiting. Using space you already have for multiple functions is a low-cost way to create more space in your new home.
Upstairs laundry. Make it more convenient to do your laundry. Washers and dryers are stackable, so they can be placed upstairs without taking up too much space.
Open floor. If you’ve toured any new homes recently, you’ve probably noticed that open floor plans are very common. Not only are they functional, but they also make spaces appear larger.
Finished basement. Look for homes with basements. Converting a full-size basement into a living area will give you more room.
