Room Additions Denver: Benefits of Adding that Extra Room


July 15, 2016

Do you feel as if you are bursting at the seams in your own home? It can be quite a discomfort, especially when your family is growing fast. If you live in a home without a guest bedroom, playroom, extra bathroom, it may be time to consider room additions. In many cases, the family feels as if the walls are caving in. Having made use of the space available, and with no other recourse, new decisions may have to be made. You could build out or build up – the choice is yours. However, it will depend on several variables. Prior to getting started, you have to consider these variables.  

The Purpose
Adding a room to your home can be a huge undertaking if you don’t have professional help. If you want to achieve a complete transformation, it will help to provide space to the entire family. However, it will also increase the value of your home. While many American families are looking into buying a new home as their best option, adding a room to your existing residence could be more beneficially. This is so if your goal is sufficient space, natural lighting, or the potential for extra income. There are also other benefits to making this investment. Let’s explore.

Sufficient Space
The number one reason that homeowners want to add to their home is to get more space. Americans as a whole like the idea of storing their memorabilia and valuables. With a new addition to the home, there is more functionality, whether it is adding a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, family room or opening up the living room. At times, even a small addition can produce huge results with greater possibilities.

Rental Income
If your intention is to earn more income, you could consider building a full bathroom and bedroom onto your house. In so doing, you will create rental income. Even though, this may not be the most popular route as it relates to home additions, it is certainly a decision that should not be ignored.

Increase in Home Value

Any type of added space to your home has the potential to increase its value. However, this depends a lot on the housing market. If the real estate market is not booming, then the value of your home may suffer. However, in subsequent years, this could be different.

Alternative to Moving
If you are strapped for space in your home, then you may want to consider relocating. This is not always the ideal choice. Moving can be a major hassle, especially if you have lived in your residence for many years. Speak to a home contractor to find out the possibilities of an addition.

Natural Lighting
A sunroom can be an excellent addition to natural lighting. In addition to more square footage, you may end up spending less on electricity and better yet, you will have the expertise of an expert contractor.

It is obvious that a room addition is the most common way of transforming a residence. It is less costly than moving.
