If you’ve made the mistake of buying a home that’s too small, whether it was years ago or you’ve just moved in, don’t worry too much – there are things you can do besides sell it to make it a better fit. (But we can definitely help you sell your home on 30A if that’s on the table.)
House Too Small? Here’s What You Can Do
For most people, the simplest solution is to add on. Other than that, you can knock down walls, add built-ins or expand your outdoor living space.
Adding On to Your Home
First things first: Check local requirements about putting an addition on your home. Then, think about whether a second story is a good choice or if you should build out toward the backyard. The downside is that adding on can be expensive, and you may not be able to recoup that cost when you do decide to sell.
Knocking Down Walls
Knocking down walls isn’t as simple as it looks on TV – you’ll need to bring in a professional if that’s the route you’re taking. However, it can be incredibly beneficial to redo your home’s layout, so rearranging might be the best choice for you.

Cheaper than adding on or knocking down walls to reconfigure your home, but almost as powerful at adding space, adding built-ins is a surefire way to make your home more roomy. Desks that fold into bookshelves, pull-out laundry racks and cabinet drawers, and even Murphy beds can be mini-miracles.
Expanding Your Outdoor Living Space
A little bit of patio furniture can go a long way. Expanding your outdoor living space is a great way to make your home feel larger, especially because the weather is almost always amenable here.
