Adding uniqueness and charm to your home is easy with an addition, and if you love your home but don’t feel that you quite have enough space, adding a room on can be the perfect solution; preventing you from having to leave the home you love.
From bedrooms and extra bathrooms, to study’s, dens and game rooms, adding on to your home can revitalise the space and breathe life into a tired, crowded home.
Here are 5 ways to get more out of your home by adding on to it:
- A kitchen extension
With even just a small extension to your kitchen and a set of bifold doors, you can help expand the room, brighten up the space with natural light and even connect it to the back yard to bring the outdoors in. With a bigger kitchen space, you can experiment with open plan dining, and have more room for entertaining or spending time with the family in over good food.
- A covered patio or deck
This home addition is the perfect complement to a kitchen extension with bi-fold doors. Expand your ability to entertain, create more outdoor space that you can actually use, and again, connect the great outdoors with the interior of your home.
- A home office extension
In the wake of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, more and more people are either choosing, or being asked to work from home. However, with many homes not having a dedicated workspace, it can become tricky for people to separate their home and work life, and finding space and peace and quiet, to concentrate, virtually impossible. By extending onto your home and creating a modern workspace, individuals can have the best of both worlds by enjoying the comfort and familiarity of their home, while fulfilling the requirements of their job.
- A carport extension
Having a carport constructed alongside your home is an underrated but incredibly useful addition to any home, and can help maintain the longevity of vehicles. Inexpensive and relatively simple to construct, you could even extend your garage with a carport over the driveway, creating maximum coverage for both you and your vehicles.
- A sunroom or extra storage space
Sunrooms are a fantastic way to get more space and create a bright, light area to relax in. While they are often used as areas simply for sitting in, there’s no reason why a sunroom can’t become an extra bedroom, or even some much needed storage space for a growing family.
There are plenty of inexpensive ways to add on to your home and turn a cluttered or tired space, into one that can become your forever home. Just be sure to work with a construction contractor experienced in small renovations and additions for the best results.
