Putting on an addition is one of the best ways to add value to your home and increase your livable space. Whether you want to expand an existing room, add a sunroom or create an in-law apartment, additions give you more space without the hassle of having to move to a larger home.
Check out these six ways an addition can improve your home.
1. Help You Realize a Dream
If you’ve always dreamed of adding a loft above your garage for an extra living room, or you’ve been thinking about a solarium off the back of your house for years, an addition can finally make those dreams come true. Why dream about it any longer? Add that wing, create that extra bathroom. Now is the time!
2. Give You More Space
Of course, the biggest reason people put an addition on their home is to increase their square footage and get more room to spread out. Due to their flexibility, additions add space where you need it, whether you decide to enlarge an existing room or add a whole wing onto your house. You’ll get more living space, to be sure, but you’ll also get more storage space as well.
3. Provide a Space for Entertaining
If you love being the host with the most, an addition can provide the perfect platform for which to entertain guests. You don’t have to feel crowded and uncomfortable again when you host that next barbecue or holiday party. Add an extra living room for people to gather, or perhaps an outdoor kitchen area. You can even add on a guest bed and bath if you frequently host out of town guests.
4. To Accommodate a Growing Family
Expecting another baby? Are your adult children flying back to the nest after college? Are your grandkids staying with you now? Do you need to take care of your aging parents? Whatever the case, get the extra space you need with an addition.
5. Provide an Investment Opportunity
If you don’t necessarily need more room for your own family but you are interested in renting out a portion of your home, you can achieve that with an addition. This can take the form of a loft above your garage, a finished basement, or an addition to the back of your home.Make extra money and invest in your property value by renting out a portion of your home.
6. You Don’t Have to Move
It’s almost always better to stay put than to tackle the upheaval of a move. If you need more space but can’t afford to or don’t want to pick up and move, an addition offers a nice alternative that allows you to remain in your home in a cost effective manner.
