Expand my /home dierctory from unallocated disk space

Hello firs,

I'm installed fedora 20 about an 3-4 hours maximum and i need some help with expanding the disk space of my /home directory. Before installing Fedora i had installed windows 7 and i need to keep the both OS cause of some university projects that require windows ometimes. I'v red this topics:

https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/8434/expanding-home/

http://askubuntu.com/questions/52424/how-to-increase-space-in-home-by-adding-an-extra-hdd

But i'm not sure how to assume compleatly the information cause there are mentioned new hard discs and creating and expanding new partition but this is not exactly what i need(i will explain why).

The hard drive i ha is about 700GB from whitch i'm usiing only 250 GB. Windows partiotioning tool shows about 500 GB unallocated space. The "lsblk" command shows this:

NAME            MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda               8:0    0 698.7G  0 disk 
├─sda1            8:1    0   3.1G  0 part 
├─sda2            8:2    0  98.4G  0 part /
├─sda3            8:3    0  25.8G  0 part 
├─sda4            8:4    0     1K  0 part 
├─sda5            8:5    0  53.7G  0 part 
└─sda6            8:6    0  47.9G  0 part 
  └─fedora-home 253:0    0  47.9G  0 lvm  /home
sr0              11:0    1  1024M  0 rom

Sda2 is the root directory witch size is ok, but the sda6(my /home dir) is too small. I want to extend it to at least 200 GB for my needs(movies, music, docs, etc).

Any suggestations, ideas or propolsals are wellcomed. Thx alot in advance
