Well-designed granny flats can provide a warm and comfortable environment for your loved ones, as well as increase the home’s value. Building one is also a great opportunity to put your design skills to test.
Building experts share some tips on decorating the granny flat kits you bought from a trusted manufacturer or supplier.
1. Make the most of the space available
There are many ways to create storage without crowding up the room. One strategy is to use the space under the bed or couch to store other items. Unless you are opting for an open shelving, use square containers to maximise the space. Round containers do not fit well against a wall, making you lose a few inches of space. It is best to plan what you are going to put in the space before deciding on anything and working backward.
2. Connect your indoor space to the outdoors
Doing the right renovations and building the appropriate extensions can do wonders even in small spaces. Focus on windows that allow more light into the granny flat and choose doors that create a seamless transition from the indoors to the outdoors. You can also create an extended porch with some chairs, tables or benches where you can relax and enjoy a good book, as well as breathe in fresh air and spend quality time with your loved ones.
3. Revamp your kitchen area
Your kitchen is a central place for family gatherings and renovating it can add value to your home. From classic Victorian style to simple, contemporary Zen, there are many ways to redesign your kitchen space.
Build a kitchen island and add some stools to save space and allow guests to enjoy a meal or drink there. Play with different hues and shapes to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
