Builders in Oxshott | How to Make the Most of Small Spaces

Having been working in the building industry for over 20 years, the team at CBC Builders has carried out work on all kinds of properties. This includes small homes and awkward spaces, such as loft conversions. As such, we have extensive experience maximising space. Whether making the most of existing space with property refurbishments or constructing home extensions to give you more living space, we ensure you get the most from your home. To achieve this, we tailor property renovations, extensions and conversions in Oxshott and the surrounding areas to your needs.

There are many ways we utilise small and awkward spaces, but the best solutions will depend on the specifics of your property and your individual requirements. At the start of your project, CBC Builders inspects your home and takes the time to understand your needs. In this way, we ensure ideal results that deliver 100% satisfaction.

The following are some of the main ways we maximise space throughout your home:


Having enough storage space is a key aspect of homes that are neat, tidy and clutter free. This has numerous benefits, such as creating a calm and relaxing space that has a positive effect on wellbeing. However, we know storage in smaller properties can be difficult to find.

When undertaking property refurbishments in Oxshott, there are various ways our builders incorporate storage. Clever solutions, such as built-in shelves and cupboards, make awkward spaces like alcoves much more practical.

In addition, when providing new kitchens, either as part of property renovations or home extensions, we design spaces with plenty of storage to meet your needs. This includes floor, wall and corner units. Furthermore, because we build kitchens to fit perfectly in your home, there is no wasted space.


Many properties in the Oxshott and Woking areas have small, cramped bathrooms that are impractical. However, there are ways CBC Builders makes small bathrooms more functional.

Some options include compact sinks and vanities as well as combined sink and toilet units. These are ideal for small bathrooms in loft conversions and downstairs cloakrooms.

Furthermore, if you have a bath that you don’t really use, it may be worth replacing it with a standalone shower that takes up less floor space.


Property refurbishments often include interior alterations to open up living space. Our builders remove and add interior walls to create fewer rooms that are larger. This is perfect for smaller homes in Oxshott because it creates a greater sense of space and makes the home more functional.

Alterations are also an excellent addition to home extensions because you can really maximise available space.

Loft Conversions

Loft conversions are an ideal way to increase living space in your Oxshott home but to get the most from these projects, it’s important to be clever about how you use the space.

Your conversion will probably have sloped ceilings, which make the space more awkward to use. However, built-in storage and/or furniture under the eaves is a perfect way to maximise otherwise unusable space. We can provide this as part of new conversions or during property renovations.

In addition, if installing a bathroom in loft conversions, our builders recommend a bath rather than a shower. This is because a bath can fit at the edge of the room, whereas a shower will have to go in the middle, where there is more headroom.
