7 Major Benefits Of Adding An Addition To Your Home…

Home additions are a great way to transform your home in more ways than one. This project lets you make expand your home’s floor space and make the most of your lot. Ultimately, home additions give you the opportunity to provide yourself and your family with the amenities and space that are necessary for improved comfort and functionality. 

Specialized Space

Maybe you are looking for a specialized space such as a music room or a home office or sunroom or even just enlarging a front or back entrance. Instead of giving up a bedroom, you can consider room additions that serve a dedicated purpose. If you add a music room you could also opt for extra insulation and soundproofing that would not be available in converting a bedroom. So many of us are working from home so why not a home office. Or you may just want to bring the sunshine into the home and build a sunroom where you can read in natural light. They also make great playrooms for the children. Or maybe you need a mudroom at the backdoor where the children can place their shoes and coats. Or may want to enlarge the front foyer with a guest close and space when people arrive all at once.

Increased Storage

You may just need a utility room for your activities, sports equipment, musical equipment, clothing, boots, children’s toys, and the list goes on. By building an addition, you now have a place to put all of these items in one place without cluttering up the spaces that you are trying to enjoy. Consider shelving and custom cabinets in your addition to make organizing even easier.

A Bedroom Addition

You may need another bedroom If the children are growing up and really want their own space. Or maybe you have elderly parents coming to stay with you for extended periods of time. Or a child who moved away and now wants to come back home. More square footage is very much appreciated by buyers. An extra bedroom can make your home more attractive when the time comes to put your home up for sale.

Extra Income

Has the time come that you would like to share your home and make a little income. Add a kitchenette and bedrooms and a bath. You can also provide a separate entrance for your tenant so they are not coming in the front door. There are many people out there looking for one room rentals.

Moving Alternative

Well you have outgrown your home but you love your home and your area. And when you think about the hassle of moving and the expense of moving you would rather add an addition. It would probably be less expensive to add a room on and your family would be happier.

Added Value

Even if you do not plan to sell your home the addition adds value to your home. It can boost your home equity. If you want to take out a loan or line of credit for a dream vacation or maybe a bathroom renovation, home equity is the assessed value of your property minus what you owe on the mortgage.

Modify Spaces

Additions do not always mean adding on to your home. You may have a porch you would like to enclose or a basement area you could turn into a family room or an attic you would like to turn into bedroom space. With the right contractor, you could convert places in your home that you assumed were unusable into your favorite new spot.

Home additions make sense. Before you decide to put your house on the market, you should have a conversation with a qualified contractor about the benefits of home additions. Additions can solve your living space or storage problems and can increase the value of your property.
