Adding More Storage Space to Your Home

Adding More Storage Space to Your Home

Are you tired of not having enough storage space for everything? Many people find that as their family grows or after they’ve lived in the same home for several years, they seem to have accumulated so much stuff that there’s just not enough room for it all. For some, this is a call to purge and donate items to charities, while others may reorganise but still want to keep everything. If you fall into the second category, it may mean it’s time to add some additional space to your home.


Add on to Your House

When people think about adding space, the first thing they think about is adding additional rooms to their home. While this will certainly add on space, it will also cost you a good amount of money, assuming you even have the space to do so. Adding on extra rooms will also result in your home life being disturbed for a good amount of time as contractors remove some or all of several walls, build the frame of the room, extend the roof, and so on. At the end of the day you will have more space, but you will also pay more for that space.

Add a Stand-Alone Garage

A stand-alone garage is another way of adding storage space to your home, and it’s a much easier option than adding on rooms. That’s because these garages are made from metal and are designed to be free-standing structures. That means there’s no need to modify your current home, which greatly reduces the time it takes to put up one of these structures and the cost to do so. Many of these garages can be assembled within a week.


You have several different options for a stand-alone garage. If you’re looking to use the space only as storage, you may want a single garage. If, however, you have a lot of stuff to store or you want to be able to park at least one vehicle in the garage, you might want to look for companies that build double garages in Perth, WA. These double garages offer much more space, plus you can use them as a shop if you do woodworking or welding. For those who need even more space, triple garages are an option.

Add a Workshop

If you need more space for a hobby or a side job, you may not really want an extra room on your house or a garage. You may want a workshop. These larger spaces give you everything you need to store your workbench and other specialised equipment, your raw materials, and your works in progress. These workshops provide you with plenty of extra space, and many use the same roll-up doors that you’ll find on garages so you can even park a car in there if you need to. These workshops are designed to last for years and just like with the garages, you can add insulation, windows, dividing walls, and other extras to configure them to fit your needs.
