Building the Best in Home Additions

As families grow and needs change, a home can start to feel compact and inadequate. While the option of moving home isn’t available for everyone, there are some great home additions that can help improve the existing living space. The simple addition or expansion of a room can increase your living space and add to your home’s resale value. However, not all renovations are effective if poorly designed or executed. First, consider the following dos and don’ts when evaluating if a home remodel and addition would be right for you.

Do:

Expand the kitchen – Kitchen improvements are a key selling point for every home. When making renovations, you will need to consider your needs as well as possible home buyers, should you decide to sell later on down the line. Keep in mind that chef’s kitchens, stone countertops, and built-in appliances are extremely popular.
Add more bathrooms – The addition of one or more bathrooms can add significant value to your home. Before renovating, talk it over with a professional to ensure that the location of your bathroom makes sense with your home’s current layout.

Don’t:

Overbuild – Adding to your home can significantly increase its value. However, it can have a detrimental effect if your addition sacrifices the size of your lot. It’s wise not to build to the edge of your property lines, as doing so eliminates outdoor spaces that can be used for landscaping and entertaining. What’s more, overbuilding can also upset your neighbors, homeowners association, and city.
Over-Customize – Carefully consider whether your home renovation would decrease the value of your property. While you may adore bright orange floor tiles, your home’s future owner may not feel the same way. If you plan on selling your home at some point, it’s wise to stick to timeless and tasteful flooring, tiling, and appliances.
