Whether adding an addition to the home to allocate more space or to simply reinvent its footprint, home additions have become increasingly popular over the last few years. While a home addition is an investment, that investment will not only increase the home’s value, but it will also enhance the lifestyle of the occupants.
If you’re considering adding valuable space to your home, consider these top 6 home addition ideas that are sure to inspire any homeowner.
Turn the Porch into a Sunroom
Porches and patios are an ideal area to incorporate additional living space. Turning a porch into a sunroom will provide the enjoyment of being outdoors while being protected from the elements. Incorporating windows with screens will allow for fresh air in the warmer months and adding heat will keep you warm in the winter.
For regions that see harsh weather, such as Northern Colorado, a professional contractor will need to incorporate strong walls and roofing that can withstand heavy snow.
Whether adding this addition for entertainment or just relaxing, a sunroom is a great way to increase your home’s square footage and value.
Add a Second Story
If you live in a one-level residence, adding a second story might be the best way to make room for kids, parents, or guests. Depending on materials and size of the addition, a second story addition can be quite an investment, but the possibilities are endless.
Consider a master suite with a spa-like master bath, or maybe two additional bedrooms and a bonus room. Regardless of need, a second story addition will greatly increase living space, making the return on your investment worthwhile.
Finish the Basement
Many homes include basements, yet most basements are unfinished and end up being a catch-all for clutter. A basement finish is optimal for adding valuable square footage to the home and can be customized to meet any need. Some of the more popular basement finish ideas include:
- Home Theaters
- Game Rooms
- In-law Quarters
- Small Apartments
- Additional Living Space
An experienced remodel contractor will be able to help you design and create a basement that will improve your lifestyle and enhance your living space, while working within your budget.
Add a Bathroom
The addition of a bathroom, especially for growing families or homes with only one bath, can be the best idea, and investment for a home addition.
Homes with two baths versus one are more likely to sell, and the addition of a bathroom will make the property value increase, so it’s a win-win for the homeowner.
Convert the Garage
The garage offers a variety of opportunities for homeowners needing to add more space to their residence. Whether a master suite, in-law quarters, or apartment for the adult child, converting the garage can make the most sense for homeowners on a budget.
Expand the Kitchen
Since kitchens are typically on an exterior wall, a new exterior wall can be built to expand the kitchen’s space, making cooking or entertaining a dream come true.
Depending on the location of your kitchen’s exterior, if there is room to allot for even a couple of feet, that can provide enough interior space to allow for extra storage, seating, or whatever you desire.
Partnering with a qualified kitchen remodel contractor should be your first step when considering a kitchen addition. They can help you determine the best plan for expanding your kitchen so that it meets all your culinary and/or entertaining goals.
