Not all homeowners think to remodel or renovate their home, even at times when it makes a lot of sense. If you’re a homeowner who wants to increase your home value, improve the structure, have more people over to visit, needs more space or has a growing family, remodeling is smart way to meet these goals.
There are many different ways to expand your home or add rooms to the existing space. These 8 additions or expansions can make a big difference in how you look at your home.
The family continues to grow. Children who share small bedrooms may have more arguments, Mothers-in-law visit … often. Add a room and improve everyone’s sleep.
Sometimes the kitchen is just too small or inconveniently arranged. You could expand your existing kitchen to make room for a scenic breakfast alcove. You could finally rip out/burn those 1970s-era cabinets.
Maybe dinner has become a standing room only affair. Maybe the last time you had guests over, somebody asked you where the “real” dining room was. Expanding or revamping your existing dining room can open up your whole house and make you more likely to throw the dinner parties.
There’s a difference between a den and a living room. Relegate video games, bean bags, and kids’ friends to the former; designate the latter adults only – and enjoy your formerly neglected bar cart and art collection.
If you live in an older home, you might have a charming but outdated carriage porch. Spare yourself the hailstorm anxiety and keeping your tools hidden away from neighbors’ view. A garage adds real estate value, storage, and a space for your growing museum of oddities.
Mud Room or Utility Room
The stuff in your home will fill the space it’s given. You might not remember buying that third pair of gardening boots, but there they are! Adding onto an existing utility room – or adding on a new one – can help you put your clutter all in one place.
