Are you interested in a home addition? Whether your family is growing, or your kids have finally moved out and you now have the time for that addition you have always wanted, there are several additions that will increase the value of your home. After you determine which home addition you want, it is important to learn how to plan for a home addition before speaking with your contractor. Your contractor will then discuss the additions’ design with you before they begin construction. Below we have listed 8 great home additions you may want to think about this summer.
Bathrooms are one of the most desirable home additions, as they are the addition that typically increases the value of the home the most. Even a half bath or master suite bathroom will enhance your home’s aesthetics and worth.
Other than bathrooms, the kitchen is one of the main selling features of a home. If the kitchen is attractive, newer, and bigger, it will attract more buyers, thus adding value to the home. Ideas for revamping and adding on to your kitchen are putting in an island, replacing floors and cabinets, adding green appliances, etc.
Some older homes do not have storage options, such as coat closet. This can cause a problem for storage space, so adding an extra room for storage such as a pantry or closet will help the functionality and produce more appeal for potential homebuyers.
If your basement is currently used as a storage room or not in use at all, refurbishing it can increase the value of your home. Transforming your basement into an appealing room with a purpose will not only give you extra space, but also will attract more homebuyers. Ideas for transforming and enhancing your basement are turning it into a game room/lounge, play area for the kids, sports den/movie room, etc.
If your laundry is in your basement, it decreases the value of your home. If you are interested in selling, or simply want to improve your home, adding a laundry room is a great way to add value.
If your home doesn’t have a garage, this is a rather simple, and not as costly addition that will add value to your home and give you more room. Whether you want to store your car (which may reduce your car premium), or use it as a storage room, this is a beneficial addition.
Whether your family is growing and you need a new bedroom for a child, or you have an elderly parent moving in, or you simply want a guest bedroom, bedroom additions are always a great way to obtain the space you need and enhance your home’s worth.
