No matter how large or small your home is, chances are that you have spaces in a few different areas that go unused. This wasted space in your home can become valuable when you’re looking into remodeling. Instead of adding square footage for more living space, you can simply make use of these empty spaces.

Here are a few tips for discovering unused space you didn’t know you had and putting it to good use:

  • Clear out clutter. You can find even more areas with potential by clearing out stacks and piles of clutter. Once the clutter is removed you might realize that you have more empty space than you thought. Take a look around your home with a critical eye, and make note of any unused spaces you see.
  • Consider making some big changes. Having a foyer that reaches up to the second floor makes for a grand entrance, but it also takes up space that could be used for other purposes. Think about what other areas could be completely remodeled in order to make better use of your existing space.
  • Hire a professional. Trying to make these kinds of changes can be challenging or even overwhelming if you don’t know how to go about it. You have to be cautious about working near wiring and pipes. You could also damage your home’s structural integrity if you’re not careful around load-bearing walls. Hire a qualified professional designer to help you figure out the most effective and safest ways to use wasted space in your home.
