Remodelling Ideas for Small Houses

Remodels | February 18, 2021

While small homes do not usually provide enough space to incorporate grand oversized elements like a walk-in shower and separate tub, one of the best things about working in small spaces is that they allow you to be more creative. At Ridgepoint Homes, we understand how important it is to use every part of a small house in order to get the most out of the space. That is why we have put together some remodelling ideas for small houses to help inspire your home renovation project.

Learn how to add onto a house.

1. Incorporate More Storage

Since clutter can make any space feel cramped, consider incorporating more storage solutions into the space. Installing shelves, rotating cupboards, and a pot rack in the kitchen can be a great way to utilize all of your space as efficiently as possible. Another great idea is to install drawers under your bed for storing clothing in the offseason.

2. Create Multi-Purpose Rooms

Creating multi-purpose rooms is one of the smartest ways to get the most out of a small house. Consider having your living room or office double as a guest room by purchasing a futon or convertible sofa bed or by investing in a Murphy bed.

3. Build a Loft

If you are looking to add additional square footage to your small home, consider looking up to find spaces in your home that could be converted into a loft. In most cases, the space above a stairwell can easily be transformed into a loft, giving you more space for storage, a guest bedroom, or a playroom.

4. Utilize Natural Lighting

One of the easiest ways to make a small home feel bigger is to incorporate as much natural light as possible. Consider having additional windows or skylights installed throughout the house or installing accordion glass doors that will allow you to bring the inside out.

5. Reconfigure Awkward Spaces

Small homes can often have a lot of awkward little spaces that are underutilized. These awkward little spaces, such as closets under staircases and other nooks and crannies, can easily be converted to make them more functional. Consider transforming one of your home’s awkward spaces into a mini library, a wine cellar, or a general storage area.
