Rob Byrne - Friday, December 28, 2012

Real estate comes at a premium and you might have had to settle for a property that is a little snug for your needs. Perhaps your family is growing, or maybe you’ve simply got too much stuff to keep comfortably in your home.

The good news is, there are simple ways to boost the amount of square footage at your disposal. For example, if you’re not making the very most of your garden, now could be the perfect time to install some timber decking.

The choice is yours

When you create usable spaces like this in your outdoor area, you ensure that you and your fellow householders have that little extra room to manoeuvre. You might decide to make a decked area that’s perfect for hosting meals and drinks with friends and family. While the UK weather isn’t renowned for its predictability, the addition of a sturdy parasol means you won’t get caught out by sudden showers.

On the other hand, maybe you’ll opt to create an area that’s ideal for youngsters to play in. This can help to create some calm within your home and it also means little ones get plenty of fresh air.

See the light

It can also be a good idea to invest in some effective lighting to frame and illuminate your garden decking when darkness falls. This can look stunning and it means you’re able to get more use out of the area.

Rather than having to retreat indoors when night descends, you can carry on enjoying the space for as long as you want.
