how to improve your home with a home addition

Do you love the location of your home, but feel that the living space is not keeping up with your family’s growing requirements? Here is how an addition can help improve your family house:

Space

The most likely inciting factor that compels you to build an addition on your home is a lack of floor space. A home addition can completely eliminate this problem. A home renovations contractor can add an improved kitchen, gorgeous new bathroom, spacious family room or stunning master retreat to give your existing home a tremendous amount of space. If you’re tired of being squeezed like sardines into your current home, it’s time to make a change.

Improve Functionality

One of the biggest complaints for homeowners who are dissatisfied with their current home is the lack of functionality. Maybe you and the kids have to fight for bathroom time in the morning, or your kitchen is laid out in an impractical way. With a custom home addition, you can design the space to suit your particular needs as a family. Your home addition can include an extra bathroom, saving the whole family time and stress in the morning. You can upgrade your kitchen with a functional “triangle” design, based around the placement of the stove, sink, and refrigerator. You have the freedom to choose a layout that is as stylish as it is practical.

Sky is the Limit

When you are trying to remodel an existing space, you are limited by the existing layout of the structure. Even if you renovate and reconfigure the space by knocking down walls or spending a lot of money to reroute plumbing and electrical, you still don’t have the design control that you get with a home addition. With a home addition, your imagination dictates the space and function of the room. If you’ve always dreamed of having floor-to-ceiling windows, an open-concept kitchen, or stunning exposed beam ceilings, your home renovations contractor can make it a reality.

Improve the Value of Your Home

The main motivating factor in planning a home addition is to make your house more practical for your family. You want to stay in the neighbourhood and avoid uprooting your kids from school or adding to your commute time. When it does come time to move on from the house, the new addition will have added quite a lot to the value of the home. Though prices fluctuate, you are very likely to recover the cost of your home addition should you place it on the market at a later date.
