If you have a growing family or simply want more space, but prefer not deal with the record high prices of the current housing market, then a home addition may be the best solution for you. Additions can be designed to your exact specifications and needs and can help you create the home of your dreams without the pressures and stresses that come with finding a new place and moving.
Whether you want your master bedroom to turn into a luxury getaway, more outdoor living space for your family to enjoy the next cookout, or a movie theater/game room space for your kids and their friends, any addition to your home can make it feel brand new. Not to mention, additions are one of the most flexible ways to transform your home.
Three Reasons to Consider a Home Addition
Create a More Spacious Environment
Creating more space is the number one reason why most homeowners decide to build an addition to their existing home. Whether it’s adding a new bedroom wing, knocking down walls to create a bigger kitchen, a larger living area with an open floor plan, or finishing a basement where your family can hang out and entertain guests — creating comfortable, functional space is an important and essential piece to feeling truly at home.
While additions are traditionally envisioned as spaces that add substantial square footage, even smaller, simple home additions like adding in a few more feet to the living room or a bow window will have big results and lead to endless possibilities. Even small enhancements to square footage or usable space can make a big impact getting the most out of your home.
It may be obvious to some, but home additions are usually less expensive than actually packing up and moving. So, instead of jumping the gun and looking for a new house when you start to feel overcrowded and cramped, especially with recent asking prices far exceeding estimated values, consider whether an addition would be a better solution for you. In many cases, they may make more sense than moving during a tight housing market. By deciding to renovate your home instead of moving, you may save your family time, money and hassle.
Also, whether you plan to sell or refinance down the road, or are just investing in the future, remodeling projects are a great way to increase the value of your home. Even the small improvements can help increase the value of your home by thousands of dollars. Who doesn’t like the sound of that?
Designed Specifically for Your Needs
When embarking on an addition to your home, the space can be designed and built exactly how you envision it to look and function. There is nothing more rewarding than watching your ideas and dreams come to life.
Are you wanting to add in a new, spacious master suite on the main floor, an enlarged bathroom with a barrier free shower that will allow you to accommodate guests of all ages, or a sweet hangout spot for your kids’ next sleepover? Well, the good news is that you are able to do all of that and more with home remodeling. Once your addition is complete, you will be able to relax and enjoy hosting the next supper club or wine night at your own home instead of avoiding visitors like you may have done in the past. Your house will be too fabulous not to show off!
Adding onto your home requires a lot of consideration and it may not always be the best option in some situations, be it the size of the lot you have to work with or restrictions placed by local ordinances or HOAs. However, for most, it is totally viable and the benefits will be reaped for years after the home addition is completed.
