As the father of an autistic child, I have been faced with more than a few necessary home modifications projects. Unfortunately, with the high cost of raising a special needs child and my wife's decision to stay home and raise our son, there simply was no room in our budget to hire a contractor to complete these projects for us. Each weekend for nearly a year, I would pick a project to work on. This past month, I finally finished every project on my list. After learning more than I thought I would ever know about home construction and repair, I have a new found appreciation for the skills of general and specialty contractors. That is why I decided to start this blog to pay tribute to the job these contractors do, and help to empower more homeowners to take on the role of a contractor in their home.
If you have a smaller house and you need some more room, but you don't want to move, then you may want to consider having a new home addition done. A home addition is a great way to keep your location but get the extra space that you want in the process. So, what are some rooms that are worth adding to your house? This article will take a closer look at three specific rooms that you might want to consider. Ready to learn some more? If so, then read on.
1. Master Suite
Have you always dreamt of being a little further away from your kids at night and having some more privacy? If so, then turn your dreams into a reality and add a master suite onto the back of your house. A master suite is a great way to not only get privacy but to increase your real estate value as well because everyone loves one. When you're adding on a bathroom, make sure that you add on a master bathroom and a big master closet as well.
2. Expand Your Kitchen
Having a tiny kitchen can feel charming until you have a bunch of people over, and there's no room for anyone to stand. Consider adding to your house and expanding your kitchen. Imagine what you can do with all of that extra space. You can add a huge kitchen island, more cabinet space, and have more room to host people as well. Just make sure that you get everything that you want in a kitchen, like double ovens and a chef-style refrigerator.
3. A Family Room
Having a big room for all of your kids, family, and friends to hang out in can seem like a dream come true. If you don't currently have a big family room, consider adding one off of the back of your house. A family room with a big sofa, lots of storage, and a television is a great way to make sure everyone is happy and comfortable.
When you have a little bit of extra space in your house, it can feel like you have a whole new piece of real estate that you can stay in for years to come. Now that you have a few suggestions of additions to make to your house, it's time to contact a contractor near you and have them get you a bid and some plans.
