Building an addition onto your home can be a huge benefit to your comfort, property value, and curbside appeal and at the same time can be an excellent response to a number of different household needs which otherwise would require you to sell your home and find a new one. However, with common home additions including everything from an additional bathroom construction to a kitchen expansion to a garage addition, there’s a lot to consider when you first begin planning a home addition. First and foremost of these considerations should be deciding what sort of addition best fits your family’s particular budget and needs while also adding to the beauty and property value of your home enough to justify the (often quite pricey) costs of addition construction. This decision will be different for each and every family but to help give you some inspiration here are some of the most popular home addition constructions on the market today to imagine for your home.
Functionally speaking, bathroom additions are the most beneficial option for the majority of households today since having even an extra half-bathroom of space for daily routines can make a huge difference in your family’s comfort in the years ahead. What’s more, bathroom additions have proven to have a very high return-on-investment, with about 60% of the cost for work recouped upon the sale of the house according to Remodeling's 2014 national survey. This is especially impressive considering that bathroom additions tend to quickly grow in price depending on things like the size of the addition being constructed and the amount of plumbing and electrical work involved in its completion.
One of the major points of interest both to homeowners and homebuyers is the size and quality of the kitchen, and with good reason! In modern homes the kitchen serves as everything from a gathering place to a workstation and so having a kitchen expansion completed by professional home addition contractors can be one of the most effective addition options for those interested in increasing their property’s value.
Adding a new bedroom onto your home can be done in a variety of different ways including building an attic bedroom and actually expanding the footprint of the home to allow an additional bedroom. Of course the different types of bedroom additions will each have different time-frames and cost estimates attached but what you can always expect to receive from a bedroom addition is a tremendous boost in the beauty, comfort, and functionality of your home as a whole. This is the most popular addition option for families that are growing and debating between expansions and moving to a new home.
