Home Remodeling Crash Course: What I Learned the Hard Way

What Type Of Home Addition Is Right For You?

You are outgrowing your current home, but instead of moving, you have decided to expand your house with a home addition. However, with so many different options available, how do you choose the right home addition for your family's needs and budget? Additionally, you need to consider if the cost of the addition will help increase the value of your home.

Here are a few of the most popular types of home additions that will make your family more comfortable and will help increase the value of your home.

Add an Extra Bathroom

One of the best investments you can make in your home is adding another bathroom. The overall price of your home is dependent on several factors, including the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and square footage. If you add a bathroom, you are not only increasing the square footage of your, but it also makes your life much easier, especially if you have a growing family.

If you do not already have one, adding a master bathroom is a great option. Another wonderful way to add space and value is to build a guest bathroom.

Increase the Square Footage of Your Kitchen

If you are like most people, you spend the majority of your life inside the kitchen. Adding square footage to your kitchen with a kitchen addition is the ideal way to spend your renovation budget. If you are concerned about spending your renovation dollar, especially if you are putting your home on the market, you cannot go wrong with a kitchen addition.

For example, that extra square footage can allow you to include additional counter space, larger appliances, and even a kitchen island.

Finish Your Basement to Add Livable Space

Unfortunately, many homeowners are dealing with a basement that is just not livable. If you are tired of going into your dingy, dusty basement and want to renovate any space or put an addition in your home, consider updating your basement. It doesn't need to cost a small fortune to update your basement, as well.

A great option is to update your bedroom to a small apartment, complete with a bathroom, bedroom, and kitchen. You can use this basement update as a source of income. The basement is also the ideal area for recreational space for your kids too.

From an updated basement to extra square footage in the kitchen, there are several amazing addition ideas that can raise the value of your home.
