You can grow the subnet or add another.

If you want, you can create a second wlan with the same ssid and security
settings as the first, assign it to a different vlan (and therefore subnet)
and deploy that ssid profile to half the Aps.
Of course you break mobility.

Or just make it a larger subnet. Depending on how your addressing is
configured today, you might even be able to avoid booting everybody.
