The Most Common Types of Home Additions That Add Value

There are so many ways you can make a home addition uniquely your own with personal touches. The most common types of home additions that can help you add value to any home include:

  • Patios and Decks – Enhancing your home with a private backyard deck or patio can help your family enjoy everything the great outdoors has to offer. It’s often faster and less intrusive than adding another room or story. Moreover, with the right accessories, a deck or patio can provide outdoor entertainment year-round.
  • Sunrooms – A sunroom, or enclosed porch, provides a way for you to enjoy fresh air without being exposed to the elements or unwanted pests.
  • Finished Basements – Create a “bonus family room” or your very own home theater! The possibilities for a finished basement are limited only by your imagination.
  • Converted Garages – If you have an attached garage, converting it into additional living space can be affordable for many homeowners.
  • Additional Bathroom – If you have a large family, adding a second bathroom is rarely a bad idea. Not only will you enjoy having that second bathroom, but it will also be beneficial when reselling your home as many buyers will find that desirable, especially if you have multiple stories.
  • Additional Floor – If your plot of land is small, consider building upwards by adding a second floor to give you more space. However, you’ll have to ensure that your home is structurally sound enough to support an additional story prior to any work.
