How to Increase Floor Space in Your Modular Home

Modular homes are gaining popularity due to their various benefits, including reduced waste, faster construction, sustainability and flexible nature.


One of the significant features of modular homes, apart from being portable, is that it gives you the liberty and freedom to design the house just the way you want. It is one of the best ways to accomplish your dream space. You can custom design your dream space to suit your taste in aesthetics. But often, when you design your home to suit your needs, you may fail to utilise the floor space to its maximum capacity.


One of the most common ways of increasing the floor space in the home is to purge things that are no longer useful. This could be an old chair lying in the corner of a room or a decorative item that is now out of fashion or is damaged. However, with modular homes, you need not worry about lack of floor space.


The design of the modular homes is such that it gives you extra floor space compared to traditional brick and mortar homes. How, may you ask? Did you know that the columns and the beams in traditional construction take a significant portion of the usable floor space inside your home? The columns are vital for load-bearing and lend stability to the overall structure.


This is where modular homes are different from traditional RCC construction. In a modular building, you have the flexibility to custom-design the floor plan. Reputed modular construction services like Nest-In by Tata Steel have a team of experts who provide valuable interior design consultation services. Based on your exact needs, they create a custom floor plan. You can design your dream space just the way you want.


Also, the walls in traditional brick and mortar construction, as per the standard industry guidelines, the builders must maintain a specific thickness of the wall, which is about 9 inches or 230mm for the outer walls, and the interior walls must be at least 4.5 inches thick, i.e., about 120 mm. Compare this with the light gauge steel frame modular construction solution like HabiNest offered by Tata Steel’s Nest-in.


The light gauge steel structure is just about 0.8mm thick. However, the thickness can vary based on the structural requirement. This makes a huge difference in giving you an additional floor space inside the home that you can use for different purposes. The extra space can help you keep the interior clean and clutter-free.


If you want to increase the space inside your home by adding a new room, you can easily accomplish the task. Modular construction solutions like HabiNest gives you the flexibility to add a new room or additional space by stacking up a new module on top of the existing structure or to its side as you want. The experts at Nest-In use proprietary software for designing these structures; all the floor joints, roof truss, etc., are detailed to the last millimetre to ensure the plan is executed perfectly.


At Nest-In by Tata Steel, we know that home is a space that gives you mental peace. As leaders of modular construction, we are committed to transform your dream into reality. Visit our website to know more about services and products.
