Key Home Additions Ideas and Considerations
Building a home addition
onto the exterior of your
home can often be one of
the most expensive
solutions for creating
additional home
living space. Besides
requiring an architect
in most cases, there are
also property setbacks
and possible zoning
regulations that may
need to be evaluated. In addition,
gas and electric utilities may need to be brought in to move gas or electric lines. Many of these issues are unnecessary when remodeling an existing portion of your home to gain living space.
Porch as an addition
Using a porch as an addition can be an inexpensive way to add living space to your home. The location of the porch and how it is accessed from the house will determine how the porch can be repurposed. All of these ideas for using your porch as an addition are for enclosed porches. If you have open porches to work with, consider hiring a contractor to turn the porch into a room, or do it yourself.
Screened Porch
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.
Extra Bedroom
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.
Bathroom
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.
Larger Kitchen
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.
Attic Conversions
Another home addition idea that is a great alternative to building a home addition is to finish an attic. Though some structural strengthening may be required for the attic floor, an attic conversion project is a great way to gain an additional home living space. Frequently attic conversions are used to create additional bedrooms, offices, and even art studios.
Family Room Additions
Family room additions and bonus rooms are two of the most popular types of additions that home owners pursue. These types of additions provide new common space for the family and make ideal living spaces for entertaining family and friends. 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.
