5 Ways to Create More Space by Remodeling

There comes a time when we simply outgrow our home, and a decision must be made as to whether we pick up and move to a new house with more space, or remodel to create more space. If the latter option is chosen, there are a variety of ways to create more space by remodeling. We understand why your family would want to stay in the home you’re already in, so remodeling is a popular option amongst homeowners.

From garage conversions to basement remodels and dormers, below are some suggestions to create more space by remodeling. The experts at Center Island Contracting will provide you with a complete design consistent with your home’s existing architecture to enhance both the aesthetic and monetary value of your home.

Garage Conversion

Since a home’s value is based on the total finished livable square footage, a basement conversion can add more space and increase the home’s value instantly. Garage conversions are one of the quickest and least expensive ways to add more space to your home, but we know they might not be for everyone if using your garage is a priority for your family.

Basement Remodel

If a garage conversion is out of the question, a basement remodel is another good option for creating more space by remodeling. A finished basement can add extra space for any of your needs; whether it’s extra bedrooms, bathrooms, a mother-in-law suite or a play area for the kids.


Dormers are another great option to add more space to your home without having to move. Dormers are available in many styles, and our design experts will help choose the style that goes the best with your home’s exterior. Dormers can not only add another room to your overall living space, they can accentuate your home’s exterior and add value to your home as well.


Additions are an obvious remodel project to undergo when your family needs more space, especially if you’re looking to add a complete extra room or wing to the house. Add on to your kitchen, add a spacious family room or more bedrooms with a home addition.


Home extensions are the most drastic remodel projects when adding space to your home. They tend to be the priciest out of all the options mentioned above, but they can also add the most value to your home. Depending on the size of your property, you can add an extension to the side, rear or add a second story to completely transform the look and feel of your home.
