Home additions can be an excellent way to increase the value of your home. Often homeowners can get more value out of a home they love by adding on to the existing space rather than searching for a new home they only hope to love as much. Your home addition should improve the overall functionality of your home, not simply add a new living space. Here are some ways an addition can improve your family home.
Additional Square Footage
The number one reason for planning and building an addition is the lack of floor space. Perhaps something has changed, or perhaps your family has just outgrown the space that was originally perfect for living. A home renovations contractor can add an improved kitchen, additional bathroom, spacious family room, or luxurious master suite, freeing up other space for repurposing.
Create More Practical Space
Improving the functionality of your home is one of the biggest reasons that homeowners decide to go forward with a home addition project. Problems from impractical kitchen layouts to fights about bathroom use to bedrooms that are too close together or too far apart may spur the thought of an addition. A custom addition will allow you to design the space to fit your family’s unique needs.
Think Outside the Confines of Existing Square Footage
The sky really is the limit when designing an add-on to your home. When you remodel an existing space, you’re limited by the existing layout. With an addition, you are able to re-create the footprint of your home and completely re-tool the functionality and flow of your space to meet your needs.
Add Monetary Value
One other fantastic thing about building an addition is the increased value it adds to your home. It allows you to customize your space while remaining in the same neighborhood without uprooting your family. Prices fluctuate through time, but if you eventually move you’ll find that the cost of your home addition will likely increase the value of your home enough to make it well worth it.
