Making space for mum

Saturday 24 February 2018

One of the most hardworking members of any family unit, there's no doubt that mum does more than everyone else around the house than practically any other family member. From strong working mothers who pay the bills, to stay at home mums who support their children full time, keeping a household running can be a stressful task – for both one and two-parent families.

That's why, for mums, in particular, having space in the home to relax and unwind after a long day is critical; whether it's a spacious kitchen, a single office or even parents-only living room.  But in an already busy household, making space for mum can be a difficult task in reality. Here are our top tips for creating space within your property for one of the most important individuals in it:

Work with what you’ve got

Your first thought when it comes to adding more space to the family home is to start looking at more substantial,  space-filled properties; but when it comes to your current property, there's a lot you can do to increase the amount of space available to you with little effort.

One of the least disruptive, and fastest, ways to adapt your home to offer independent space and unique areas is to look at the actual layout of your property. Have too much space in your living room? Consider adding walls, changing the layout of your house or dividing the area to create a space just for mum.

If you have more than one space in your property that is just taking up space and not doing much – a rarely used bathroom or dining room for example –, you can combine that area to create something that's unique to your household.

Onwards and Upwards

If every space in your home is currently in use, and you can't see a way to improve on the use of what you now have, the next step to consider is conversion – loft conversion to be precise. In London loft conversion is more common than ever, providing additional space that's not only filled with rustic charm, thanks to sloping walls and skylights, but also the perfect space in which to relax.

With a loft conversion, you can give mum not just her own space – but her own floor away from everyday family life, providing an opportunity to relax at the end of a long day. A loft conversion for older houses is more and more common and offers and authentic old-world feel to any property.

Extend your area

If loft conversions or adapting existing space doesn't appeal, adding an extension to your property can provide that much-needed extra square feet to turn your home from cramped to spacious and offers countless opportunities for unique features and individual rooms planned precisely to the needs of your household.

Whether a bright and airy kitchen is the perfect sanctuary for the mum in your life, or just a space to call her own in the evenings, then an extension can provide the most exacting way to turn your home into your oasis. A London extension to your home can squeeze that bit more space out of your city property, and offer a space away from the everyday chaos of our capital.
