When our home and budget is small, we must find creative ways to extend the place. We can either continue it with one more room or even a little patio. There are many inspiring ideas that you can find on Homify. In this article, we have collected projects from the experts registered on our platform, where they show us terraces, extra rooms or incredible solutions that manage to create a more significant environment.

1. Closed terrace

First of all, you can build a small terrace which is closed with wood and glass.

2. Back porch

Creating a porch on the back facade is also a fabulous ideal. You can even place some furniture and curtains.

3. Glass and metal

Here you can see a construction of glass and metal attached to the house.

4. Pergola

Installing a pergola in the yard is also worth a shot.

5. Expand space

You can expand the dining and living room with different materials which are already available in the house.

6. Separate terrace

Create a terrace which is separated from the rest of the house.

7. Additional rooms

Additional spaces like a study or guest house in the garden is also a thing to consider.

8. Wooden extension

Here the designer has incorporated an expansion of a few square meters, made with wood which is more economical.

9. Empty space

When the dining room does not fit at home, build a small room next to it so that the area can be expanded.

10. Sliding doors

Expand the house by pulling walls and installing sliding doors.

11. Modern and resistance

15. Gourmet kitchen

Another way to extend your home is to create a gourmet kitchen separate from the house. It will allow you have room for gatherings.

Creating an L-shaped space which is fully open to the small garden is also a good decoration solution.

17. On a tight budget

If you are on a tight budget, then you need to contemplate the garden.

18. Shaded balcony

You can also extend your house with a shaded balcony towards the patio.

19. Garden

Create a lush and straightforward garden for a classic look.

20. Barbecue area

A simple extension can be a place for barbeque and outdoor cooking.

21. Including wood

By incorporating wood, everything can be achieved.

22. With lights

A lounge area outside your house can be decorated with lights. It gives an illusion of more space.
