If you have been thinking about transforming your home for more enjoyment and comfort, putting on an addition is a great way to achieve that. But on top of that, an addition can add to your property value and curb appeal. Whether you want a two-car garage with loft above or a sunroom off the back of the house, an addition is the ideal way to increase your square footage and ensure your home grows as your family does.
Here are six reasons why an addition will improve your home.
1. You’ll Finally Have the Home You Want
You may have been dreaming about an addition for many years and are finally able to swing it financially. Your family is growing and you need more space. Now, you can finally make those dreams a reality by having your Boston contractor handle your home renovation. No more waiting. It’s YOUR time now!
2. You Need the Extra Space
All homeowners at one point or another have wished they had more space. Additions provide a certain amount of flexibility that allows you to add space wherever you need it. It doesn’t have to be a huge addition. You may want to bump out your kitchen, or create a mudroom for storage, or enclose your front porch into an extension of your interior. Whatever the case, adding square footage to your existing home has never been easier.
3. You Can Accommodate Crowds
If you love to entertain and always seem be having parties and gatherings, you may be fed up with the cramped space your current house affords. Now’s the time to expand your usable space and add a rec room, loft over the garage, or sunroom so that when you do have people over, they all have somewhere to comfortably relax.
4. You Will Have Room For Your Growing Family
Perhaps when you first bought your home, it was just you and your spouse. But now that you have twin toddlers and another baby on the way, you suddenly feel the need for more space. Add a playroom, nursery or wing to your small home so you can fit not only all your kids but their stuff as well.
By the same token, if your college graduate is coming back to the nest or your aging parents want to move in, you can add an in-law apartment or finished basement to accommodate your growing family later in life.
5. You Can Rent Out Space
If you need more money to make your mortgage every month, consider adding a loft over your garage to rent out. It’s a wise investment in your property.
6. You Don’t Have to Move
Who wants to pick up and move their family and belongings in this market? A much better alternative is to simply add on to your existing home, stay put, and age in place.
