3 ways to create more space in your home

If your home no longer meets your needs and you require more space, home renovations can be the solution. A trustworthy and experienced general contractor can help you design a home addition or upgrade in your existing home, so you can continue to love where you live. 

Dorion Contracting Inc. in Edmonton is a full-service general contracting company specializing in residential construction and renovations. Here they share three ways to create more space in your home. 

Develop the basement

If your home has an undeveloped or underutilized basement, that’s a great place to start! Finishing the basement can nearly double your home’s usable living space. You can build a cozy family room, additional bedrooms and a bathroom, a home office, a playroom, and a fitness area. The possibilities are endless! 

However, there are a few key things to consider with basement renovations:

1. You want to ensure all potential moisture issues are remedied before you start.
2. Make sure your basement’s lighting plan includes electrical and natural lighting where possible.
3. Choose light colours to help brighten up the space.

These are all things Dorion Contracting can help you with. 

Consider an addition

A home addition can give you the extra space you need, so you can continue to live in your beloved home and neighbourhood. An addition could be a four-season sunroom, a bump out in the kitchen, or a new room added to the house. You can also do a second-story addition to give yourself more bedrooms for a growing family. 

Take a look at this small home addition Dorion Contracting worked on. In this instance, the homeowner added space on the second level for a bathroom and ensuite closet. 

Garage addition

Consider a garage addition if you don’t have a garage already. If you do, Dorion Contracting can renovate your garage to create more space for living or storage. For example, a garage can be a place to park vehicles, store seasonal items, and yard equipment. Or, perhaps, you want to build your dream workshop in the garage, complete with a heating system, epoxy floor, and clever workbench and storage solutions. 

In addition, your garage can become a functional living space. For example, some homeowners create garage suites to accommodate multi-generation living or to rent out to tenants for additional income. If you’re unsure how best to utilize that potential space, reach out to Dorion Contracting!
