Could your home use a little room to grow?
Sometimes, even the perfect house can benefit from the addition of extra space. As our families expand and our day to day needs change over time, our homes can begin to feel a little cramped and less compatible with our lifestyle. While moving is a potential solution, it can be a hassle, and is often less preferable to remaining in the home you know and love. Fortunately, home additions can be a fantastic way to expand your space while also increasing the overall value of your property. Learn more about the various options you can explore with home additions below!
Before You Expand
While home additions have plenty of perks for owners to explore, it’s important to make sure the goals you have in mind line up with the reality of an expansion project. First and foremost, you’ll want to make sure your vision lines up with municipal bylaws, and that you have all necessary permits prior to construction. Before you move ahead with an addition, you’ll want to ask yourself the following:
- What is the main goal of this expansion? Does it serve a functional purpose ( i,e. extra bedrooms), or is it mostly for “cosmetic” purposes?
- How does this addition add long term value to my home?
- What is my budget for the project?
Don’t Be Scared to Dream!
Once you have your core objective in mind, you can move forward in pursuing your vision confidently. Suitable options to consider for additions include:
Upgraded Master Suite
Is your master suite feeling a little tight these days? Why not create the bedroom you’ve always wanted with an ensuite closet, bathroom, or both!
Expecting the pitter patter of little feet in the near future? A nursery can be used as a multi-functional space once your little one grows, including use as a playroom, small den and more.
Tired of tackling emails from the couch while trying to focus? Why not expand to include a dedicated home office that gives you the peace and quiet you need!
