What are the Benefits of a Home Addition?

Home additions are a great way to transform your home and give your family the necessary amenities and space they always dreamed of. While many families across America look into remodeling plans, others are taking full advantage of the numerous benefits a home addition can provide such as added space, potential rental income or more natural light. There are many other advantages to investing in a home addition.

1. Home Additions Give You More Space

The first benefit of home addition is, of course, the extra space. Home additions can be as large or small as you desire from adding a new bathroom, expanding the kitchen, or designing a new bedroom for a baby or family member. Home additions are especially popular for families whose in-laws move in with them later in life, as they can customize a new space with a small kitchen, living area, and bedroom.

Sometimes, even a very small addition can yield big results. Adding just three or four feet to a small kitchen or bathroom can open up a world of possibilities. Whether you choose to add a living room, dining room or maybe even a bow window, a home addition will give you the extra space you know you want.

2. Home Additions Can House Extra Family Members

It is no secret that more kids are moving back home. In fact, according to a recent study by the Pew Research Center, almost 40% of young adults live at home with their parents. 

If you have space, home additions can include an entire bedroom. In fact, if the plumbing allows for it, you can even add a small bathroom or extra guest bathroom. The extra bedroom and bathroom would be perfect for out of town guests as well.

3. You Can Rent It Out for Additional Income 

If you choose to build a full bedroom and bathroom, homeowners could also rent out the additional space. While the entire home may get cramped, some homeowners are choosing to rent their addition to make up for the building costs. 

It’s not the most common route to take for home additions, but certainly, one that can’t be ignored given current times. 

4. Home Additions Could Add Value to Your Home

Homeowners like to assume that adding more space always increases the value of your home. That is not true. While a home addition could add value to your home in the long run, that is not always the case. 

If you are building a home addition with the goal of increasing your home’s value, we highly recommend doing your research or contacting a real estate professional first.

5. Home Additions Can Be Cheaper than Moving

It should be fairly obvious, but no matter what type of home addition you undertake, it will almost always be cheaper than moving. Furthermore, moving comes with the huge hassle of packing, hiring movers and reorganizing. 

Additionally, with home additions, concrete and framing can get underway for at least two weeks before the construction moves into your existing home. When it comes to aggravations, home additions beat out moving every time.

6. Home Additions Can Add Luxury

As I said earlier, we could always use more space and the first room all homeowners always want to remodel is their bathroom. If your space allows it, home additions can add luxury to your master bathroom. 

If you want to add a closet, a bathtub or perhaps his and her sinks, home additions can certainly make room for those lavish items you always wanted.

7. Home Additions Can Add Natural Sunlight with A Sunroom

When property owners think of home additions, oftentimes, they think of a sunroom. They cost less than full-scale room additions and they give you just as much square footage. Sunrooms can also add some natural sunlight to the surrounding rooms. 

Home additions are one of the many ways you can transform your current residence into the dream home you always wanted. Home additions are less expensive than many remodeling jobs and are almost always more affordable than moving. Whether you need more space, an extra room for a family member or want to update your master bathroom, homeowners should never overlook a home addition.
