If your home's interior doesn't have the space that you'd like, you can feel cramped within your own walls. If you want to make your space appear larger but don't want to go through the expense and construction of adding onto your home's space, there are other remodels you can do with your existing architecture that can make a difference. Here are unique home remodel ideas that can make your living space appear larger and more inviting.
Glass railing staircase
Staircases take up a lot of square footage and are difficult to work around when trying to expand your home's interior or make it appear larger. You can't remove a staircase without compromising the overall design of your home, but you can upgrade to a modern glass railing style to open up the space and give your home a contemporary, welcoming feel. Glass railing staircases can be customized with tinted or beveled glass for a decorative appeal that you will love. Talk with your contractor to see if a glass railing remodel is an option you can consider.
Upgrading your living room window to a lovely bay window with a ledge adds dimension without expanding your space too much. The rounded style of a bay window takes away from the squareness of your room while the large windows offer an inviting appeal that makes the space appear much larger than it really is. If you have an existing large window or a bay window without a ledge, a simple remodeling upgrade can transform your room even more.
Recessed lighting is a great way to give the illusion of space via bright and welcoming light. Consider installing lights flush with your ceiling to give your rooms a streamlined look. Recessed lighting should be installed in all community rooms of the house (such as your living room, dining area, kitchen, and entertainment room) to maintain its allure throughout the home. This type of lighting makes your rooms appear larger by giving your ceilings the illusion that they are higher than they are and shooting gentle lighting downward for a brighter appeal in each room.
If you want your living space to appear larger but you don't want to do a major remodel, there are a few things you can do to improve your space. Glass railings in your existing staircase, recessed lighting, or even a bay window can all make a huge difference in your home and make it appear larger than it really is without having to do a major expansion.
