Being a homeowner is no small feat. Especially out here in Daytona where the weather mimics that of most popular vacation spots. Whether you’re buying or a selling a home in the area, or you’re just looking to make the most of the space that you have, finding ways to create valuable space in your home is a must. Given that this is the space that will become a sanctuary, for you or the person purchasing it, it only makes sense to find ways to expand the functionality of space that you do have to work with so that the house becomes a space that can truly become a home.
Central Florida Screens is a company that is built to improve the areas of your home so that you can best use it. That being said, today we’re going to talk about a few of the ways that you can create valuable space without having to do anything too out of the box or that is too time-consuming. Let’s get started!
Create a Purpose
For most of the open spaces in your home, one of the best things that you can do is create a purpose for them. When you have so much open space it can look excessive and empty, but too much clutter can make a space look messy and stressful. The best way to keep things in a perfect balance would be to dictate a purpose for each room that you have and stick to it.
If there are underused rooms, do your best to avoid turning it into a space where you leave items that don’t have a designated space. This is the easiest way to let a space get out of your control.
For example, if you have a room that you’re wanting to use as a guest room, but it isn’t fully put together or it isn’t being used, then this is a great place to start optimizing your space! Turning unused space into an area where you can work on crafts, create an office, or organize into a place for you to follow through with hobbies, can make the most of your space while also helping you organize and make the most your home.
The mistake so many homeowners make is feeling like they want more space because they don’t have an area where they can get work done or partake in their passions, but more often than not there is some space in their home that can be converted into a place to get these exact types of things done.
One of the tips that you’ll always hear for optimizing your space is to tidy up and declutter as much as possible. This is a pretty universal tip and the reasoning behind that is because it works. Many people that feel like they don’t have enough space have things that they could give up to create more space, and that’s the truth.
Whether it’s old clothes in your closet, junk that’s cluttering your kitchen table or office space, or random craft supplies that have found their way around your home, minimizing a number of items that you have can greatly increase the open space that you feel you have within your home. It may take longer to do this, but you can pinpoint even more functionality within a room by doing so.
An Enclosed Space
Even here in Florida, there are days that you just don’t feel like spending time outside. Unfortunately, a portion of the home that you own is inclusive of your outdoor space, and when you’re not making the most of that space, you’re wasting it.
Whether it’s your porch or a pool that you are able to enjoy, adding an enclosure can quickly add an additional space that you can enjoy without having to worry about the weather or what the conditions are like outside. It may not seem like a huge deal, but consider both of these spaces, and let’s visit the potential.
Your porch or patio is right outside of your house, but when temperatures fluctuate to either extreme you aren’t likely to choose this space as the first place to hang out. When temperatures are cold, being outside seems like it’s completely out of question for where you should hang out. The same goes for when it’s too hot. If you’re worried about mosquitoes, bugs, and the temperature that continues to go up, a screen is a great way to have a space that isn’t directly in the sun and is also free of pesky bugs. By adding a screen you can quickly convert this space into a great area for coffee in the morning, a reading space or even a dining space when friends are over.
Now, let’s touch on enclosed pools because the benefits are endless. It’s so nice to be able to sit out and enjoy a cool swim when temperatures are high. On the other hand, when a storm hits and you have to look at your pool, it’s extremely difficult to feel great about having a pool when there are leaves and debris floating around in your pool. Having a nice enclosure creates additional space for you and your family or friends to enjoy this space that you already have, while also reducing the amount of maintenance that you usually have to do. When temperatures are high you can have additional protection from the sun and insects, while the cooler days will provide you with some blockage of the wind and the ability for you to really take advantage of this space that you have.
