Home Addition Ideas
Adding on to your home is a huge and, potentially, expensive step. You have to keep in mind your budget and what additions would be serve you and your household.
Keeping in mind the increase in your home’s resale value is also a good idea when you are wanting to make a profit. There are several ideas for additions that will make your home more of what you need it to be as well as increasing your home’s resale value.
Increase the size of your kitchen when adding on to your home. This will make your kitchen more user-friendly for you as well as future buyers. Use the added space for additional cabinets, to make room for a kitchen island or for larger appliances such as refrigerator or stove.
Build another bathroom when adding on to your home. This will make the lives of all your household members much better as well as increase the resale value of your home. Make sure to add a stand-alone shower and plenty of storage space in your new bathroom.
Add another bedroom on to your home. Create a guest bedroom that can also double as a home office. Be sure to add enough room in this additional bedroom for a large walk-in closet and vanity area–including a counter with extra storage.
Create a family room for your home when building your new addition. Make it spacious enough to suit your needs, yet cozy for your family and friends. Consider placing on the back of your home so you can add a sliding glass door that provides both access to and a view of your backyard.
Add a screened porch onto your house. Remember to include sun lights (or “star lights”) in the ceiling to add more natural light. Be sure that your screened porch is wired for electricity. Many porches aren’t and this is an added plus. A screened porch will add value to your home because it can also be used as mudroom or can easily be converted into an additional bedroom.
