Before you decide on a room addition, think of what kind of additional space you are craving. There might be no simple answer to that, but to find one, take some time to answer a couple of questions that will help you find the best solution for you and your family.Here is the list of questions to give a bit of thought:
You may always have been into cooking, but now you tend to spend even more time in the kitchen because you need to watch your kids doing homework while making dinner, or there are parties that often take place in the kitchen. In this case, you might want to remodel and expand your kitchen by adding a dining room to it. This kind of room addition will make it possible for your family and friends to gather together and spend more time enjoying each other's company.
Another alternative for expanding your kitchen would be to combine it with a living room, perhaps, making the whole space a big family room. With this project, you can make your kitchen the heart of your house, and may even think of having a fireplace and bookcases to give a sense of extra coziness to the place.
If you often have someone who stays overnight or comes for vacation, like a friend, or a family member, then you can design a special room so that guests feel most welcome. An extra bedroom can take its place in an attic if you have one, or you could consider adding a second story to your house.
If you are worried that this room would be empty half the time, try making this project multifunctional. You can use this extra bedroom as a dressing room with a big closet, or a room where you will spend time practicing your hobbies when there is no one visiting.
Once kids start growing up, they require more and more private space, and that is not only about having their personal room or bedroom but also about a bathroom, even if it is tiny.
Having an extra bathroom, especially if a family is large enough, can help to avoid the hassle in the morning, and also, you could manage the cleaning more efficiently by asking your teen kids to clean up themselves.
With most of us working remotely at the moment, one can not underestimate a convenient working space or a study where we can create the environment we feel most productive, in and surround ourselves with the things that prompt us to do our job more efficiently.
A home office can become a long-term investment and add value to your house. With the help of this room, you may become better at striking the right work-life balance because you will not have to commute between home and office all the time, and will not get distracted when working in the kitchen or in the bedroom.
This is probably one of the most low-cost solutions when we think of room additions, and more manageable than other home additions. All you have to do is basically think of the right door, replace the floor and add the ceiling, and transform a garage into a living room or a bedroom.
A garage can become a full accessory dwelling unit if you decide to add a small kitchen and a bathroom to it. In most cases, you will need to do only some minor changes to the electricity, but be ready to invest in a new plumbing system because typically, garages lack them.
This option will work well if you wish to rent part of your property or want to isolate some space from your house. It can be a summer guesthouse or place for your parents or in-laws when they come for a visit. These units are usually made with their own kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms, so this project might cost you quite a lot.
