Home additions are an excellent way to increase space for you and your family. Whether you want to increase your home’s value or gain more square footage, an addition is a worthwhile investment. There is an infinite number of ways to expand your house’s size, but our team came together to highlight just a few of our favorites. Keep in mind that it is best to consult a builder before starting any home project.
One of the projects that can create the highest resale value for your home is a kitchen remodel. This improvement can provide a hefty return on investment. You can expand your kitchen’s square footage by turning a flex space or bump-out addition into a walk-in pantry or breakfast nook. A bump-out provides opportunities for a cozy breakfast nook, a more functional space for appliances, or an extra area for additional counter space like an island. Check out some of Shore Builder’s beautiful kitchens in our kitchen gallery.
Adding square footage to your bathroom can also be a great way to increase your home’s value. Bathroom upgrades or extensions are ideal for improving comfort and convenience in a home. This is especially true for larger families or if you house guests at your home often. If you need ideas for upgrading or extending your bathroom, check out our bathroom gallery here.
Adding a bonus room is an effective way to increase your home’s living area for your family. This extra space can reconfigure to function as anything your family sees fit, whether as an office, bedroom, home theater, or game room. It will be a versatile space that can function for almost any need and add immediate value to your home.
If you love sitting outside and relaxing with a cup of coffee, a porch addition is an easy way to create extra square footage for your home. A porch addition provides a space to enjoy the great outdoors and gives you a functional area for entertaining. Remember that for your porch to be considered livable square footage, it needs heating and to be accessible from the house.
In addition to a porch addition, a new patio is a great way to increase your home’s value while enjoying the outdoors. Enclosing your new patio is a creative way to create a cozy outdoor living room.
Creating a deck is a valuable way to provide yourself additional square footage. Decks can be versatile in how you want to utilize them – you can build a deck off your home’s lower floor or upper level or even as a rooftop! When adding a deck, you have endless options between composite or stained wood. This addition will add to your living space while also sprucing up the appearance of your backyard.
As our lives evolve, the home we have may become too small to accommodate our ever-changing needs. At Shore Builders, Inc., we strive to bring your home addition dreams to reality. From an extra bedroom or bathroom to an added second floor or new wing of the house, our design-build team can create and construct the home addition your family needs to live happily.
