How to create a sense of space in your home

Our clients often ask us how they can create a sense of space in their home. Many of us have spent more time than ever in our homes during recent times and are longing for more space!

We have put together a list of possible space saving (or adding!) solutions. Simple changes can be made in your home using dry-lining and plastering solutions. BWP Plastering Services Ltd can provide design input and produce solutions to help bring your vision to life.

Knocking through or removing internal walls:

This can help to create a range of different living spaces such as an open plan kitchen/dining space or a living/dining space subject to structural elements. This can be a great way of expanding room size and creating a natural sense of space and light without the need for extension! Always seek the advice of a structural engineer before removing walls.

Adding an en-suite:

An en-suite can not only add value to your property, but it also gives you a practical solution particularly in busy family households. An en-suite can be easily created using partition walls, dry-lining and plastering to create a high quality finish. Aesthetic details such as light boxes can provide additional space as well as creating a luxurious design.

Creating walk in wardrobes:

Free standing furniture is often bulky and space consuming. Adding a walk in wardrobe by creating a partition wall can save space as well as blending in with the spatial features. Again, additional lighting or shelving and boxing can be added to create storage and contribute to the design aesthetic.


Combine a box room and master bedroom to create a master suite:

Often spare bedrooms become a dumping ground or lose a sense of purpose due to not being big enough to use as a bedroom. A great way of utilizing space is to knock through to the master bedroom, creating a large master suite. This could include a walk in wardrobe or en suite (see above) and give you a fabulous, spacious haven.


Create a sense of light and height with ceiling details:

We can’t raise ceilings but we can create a sense of height and light by forming drop-down bulkheads around the circumference of the ceiling. If you are looking to add a high end modern design feature to your space, additional lighting elements can be added such as LED strips or spotlights. This can transform the look and feel of a space and give a tired, unloved space a serious design update.

Small details that can make a big difference:

Sick of seeing cables and wires in your living space? Creating a TV encasement can hide a multitude of mess! The encasement could simply be formed as a border around the bracket or incorporate the full height of the room.  Either way, This will make the TV flush to the wall and get rid of any bulky and unsightly wires and switches.
