How Can I Live Large In A Small House?

When you live in a small home, it can feel like your design choices are limited. But great design comes in all shapes and sizes, even if those sizes are under 600 square feet.

Whether you’re feeling cramped in your kitchen or your living room doesn’t feel right, here’s how you can live large in a small house.

Don’t be afraid of a remodel

Remodels are known for their return on investments. In fact, a bathroom remodel has an average ROI of 70% and a minor kitchen remodel has an average ROI of 82.7%.

That said, you don’t need to worry about losing any of your home’s value when you make these changes. You’re more likely to increase the value.

But remodels aren’t just valuable. They also help to make your house feel like home. When you renovate your space, you can do what you like to make it more functional and visually appealing.

Make some space

Your basement doesn’t need to be a creepy spider dungeon where you go to wash your clothes at the end of the week. By finishing your basement and turning it into an additional living space, you can extend the square footage of your home.

Finished basements can be used for entertainment areas, home theatres, home offices, playrooms, guest bedrooms, and even in-law suites. If you don’t have a basement and the lack of space really bothers you, a home addition can also help to give you the extra square footage you need.

Choose furniture that wears several hats

Remodels and home additions can make your house a home, but you still need to navigate the smaller spaces in your house. You can do this by investing in furniture that serves a dual purpose.

Consider using your dining table or breakfast bar as a desk. You can also swap out your coffee table for a storage bench so you can use it both as a table, storage, and extra seating.
