Converting a Space

If space is limited in your home try thinking of creative ways to still obtain that private office or extra den you’ve always wanted. Today there are many convenient ways to convert a space to an entirely different purpose. A very popular conversion is the room-to-closet change. This is one of the easiest changes you can make in your home, as the basics just include installing clothing rods and a wardrobe wall unit. The wall unit will allow for storage via shelves and drawers. For the individual looking to do this on their own, a great option for the wardrobe system are the collections from Ikea. With these, you can select from a variety of set ups that will custom create your perfect closet wall unit. It’s easy, and often much more affordable can having a custom unit designed and built from scratch.

For a quick and easy room conversion, we often see the closet-to-office. This is easily done by simply finding a desk that will fit within the dimensions of the given closet, with a chair that can be tucked under the desk without interfering with the closet door. This is a great way to create a unique space to work without taking away from any other room. For those living in small spaces, it can be difficult to find an empty space for a workplace, and a closet can often be just the right solution.

For those looking for a newfound living space, many turn to their garages. Converting a garage into a den is a great way to add a room to a home without any major construction. While this conversion is much more complicated than the previous listed, it can still provide you with quite a bit of new space. To do this correctly, you will need to remove the garage door and seal off the open space with dry wall. This can require a contractor, but will be far less costly than constructing an entirely new structure. Remember to include a functional window in this new wall to keep the room to code. Most garages have unfinished ceilings, and while this does depend on taste, the space will feel far more complete if you finish off the ceiling. Beyond those basic steps, all it takes is some new flooring, paint, and furniture!

All of the above are great ways to accommodate for your needs without any drastic construction. Converting a space can redefine your living environment, and provide new rooms where there are none!
