Adding more space to your home is a great way to boost curb appeal and give your family space to sprawl, but knowing what to do with your newfound square footage isn’t always easy. Instead of adding a room now and deciding what it will be later, go into your home addition knowing what you want from your new space. If you’ve decided to invest in a new home addition, consider creating one of these four types of areas:
Create a Home Office with Your New Home Addition
While some folks are returning to offices, many Americans are shifting toward a work-from-home or hybrid lifestyle. Give yourself a place to work with a new home office! Make sure that your new space has everything you need: WiFi, air conditioning, and ample electrical outlets are vital. Your home office could also use some windows, and be sure to leave enough room for your favorite desk!
Home Additions Make Excellent Sunrooms
Many homeowners choose to add sunrooms, solariums, or greenhouses to their homes. Even something as simple as an extra room with large windows can bring some of the beauty of nature into your property. Sunrooms can be a fantastic place to relax: settle in with a book, listen to the rain land on your windows, and tend to your favorite houseplants in one of these versatile spaces.
Expand an Existing Room
Your addition doesn’t have to be a separate room. Some homeowners choose to add some square feet to existing rooms, widen the current footprint, and create more usable space. You may find that making a bigger living room, kitchen, bedroom, or bathroom can be much more useful than an entirely new room.
Hobby Rooms, Workshops, and Playrooms Give You a Place to Unwind
Do you have a place to escape? Is your favorite hobby messy or loud? Consider creating a hobby room or workshop with your home addition. You get to enjoy a space that is completely set aside for your hobby, and your family members can rest easy knowing that they won’t have to deal with sewing supplies, paints, or sawdust throughout the rest of the home. Alternatively, create a room for your family’s youngsters: a playroom gives the kids a place to be creative and have fun, allowing you to enjoy the rest of your home in peace and quiet.
