Having kids and pets can make life more exciting and meaningful. However, it’s also important to ensure that you have enough space to welcome the new addition to your family.
Here are a few simple ideas on how you can maximize the space in your home and make it adequate for your growing family.
One bathroom may not be enough for growing families so you might want to add another one. Also, if you have an extra closet in an adjacent bedroom, you can convert this into extra bath space.
If you have a separate kitchen and dining area, you might want to convert these spaces into one large open-plan area. This way, you can easily watch over or bond with your kids, who can do school projects or homework in the dining area, as you prepare their meals.
Alternatively, you can add a kitchen island with extra seating or a custom kitchen table with removable insert. And, since you’ll have to stock up more food, you might want to get additional food storage and kitchen cabinets.
Basement or Attic
Use the space in your basement or attic to build an extra bedroom, office or game room.
More people in your home means increased foot traffic. In this case, you might want to switch to hardwood flooring since it’s easier to clean and maintain. Additionally, you might want to use the space near the entries and under the stairs as extra storage. Make sure there’s proper ventilation as well. Let natural light and fresh air enter your home to keep a healthy indoor environment.
