Add more space to your home.
All it takes is a little work to enjoy a bigger home without moving into one. When you remove walls from your home, you’ll create connected rooms with better ventilation. For instance, you may consider merging the living room and kitchen. If you decide to do so, make sure to install a new counter between the two areas.
