We have a network using static addressing (no DHCP) with addresses in the range 192.168.0.1 / 255.255.255.0

I do not have enough IP addresses for the new workstations I plan to add.

Without using DHCP, what is the best/easiest way to add the new workstations with addresses in the 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.254 range while allowing these new workstations to have full access to all devices with addresses on the 192.168.0.1 network ?

You have to change the network mask from 255.255.255.0 to 255.255.254.0 on ALL workstations.  If you don't, the ones with the old mask will not be able to communicate with the new ones and the 'broadcast' IPs will be different for the two groups.
