How do you know when it’s time to upsize?

Moving house isn’t hassle-free, and to avoid expense and upheaval, many homeowners tend to make do, despite their current home being too small. However, putting off a move can have a negative impact on your lifestyle, relationships, and family life.

So how do you know when it’s time to stop making do and upsize your home? We’ve put together some key factors to consider below:

You have a family, but the ‘little ones’ are no longer little

Even in a smaller house, there are many ways you can make room for your growing brood. With your limited bedrooms, the little one’s sharing is doable using small cots and bunk beds. However, as the kids grow, the space for them is going to get smaller. And what is now already a squeeze will become an issue.

Everyone is home all day

Whether you’re a family, a couple, or living alone, if you at home all day every day, your house will feel smaller. This is manageable in spring and summer when you can escape to the garden or outside. But during the winter, it can be much more difficult to find your own space. As a result, the need for more room becomes a must, which indicates it’s time to upsize.

Decluttering doesn’t help

When your home is becoming a tight squeeze, it’s always a good idea to declutter. Decluttering helps free up space and provide a more organised home. However, if you find that, despite decluttering, everything still feels chaotic and disorganised, it may be time to upsize. A new home with more storage will accommodate your lifestyle better and make the home a more practical place to be.
