Signs you’re ready to upsize your home
Deciding when to move can often feel like taking a big step. When the time is right for someone else, may not necessarily mean that the time is right for you. It’s important to really think about your lifestyle and what you want from the future. There are some important signs to look out for that make you stop and think that maybe it’s time to upsize.
Your home feels smaller
No, your home hasn’t suddenly shrunk overnight but sometimes it can feel like that. Over the time that you’ve lived in your current home you’ve probably accumulated a lot of things and suddenly you can’t find homes for these old or new items. Maybe you’ve tried being ruthless and getting rid of possessions or you’ve invested in smart storage solutions but they’re still not helping. This probably means it’s time to upsize and look for a new home with more space available, maybe this is a spare room or a property with larger rooms.
A growing family
Are you thinking about growing your family, with a baby or maybe even a fury friend? Then you’ll definitely need some extra space to accommodate this life change. Babies come with a lot of stuff and if you’re currently living in a one bedroom property then upsizing to have a nursery is definitely recommended.
You want to spend more time entertaining at home
There comes a point in most people’s lives when they prefer to spend more time at home compared to going out, and with this change often comes a need and want for more entertaining space at home. Having your friends round for a dinner party when you can’t even fit a table in the living room isn’t ideal, so the time has probably come to look for that perfect property with a large kitchen diner and roomy living space.
You need outside space
Outside space can come in different forms, maybe you’re going all green fingered and want some garden space, or maybe you need a garage and or driveway now. Either way signs you’re ready to upsize your home aren’t always obvious from the inside of your home!
