Space is an ongoing challenge in today’s real estate market, as many houses have small square footage with outrageous pricing. Getting a home that can fit your family, furniture, and other belongings is difficult unless you are willing to go over budget.

Luckily, home additions are a great way to add more space to your home. They are small structures built on the side of your house to serve a single function e.g., bathroom, kitchen, or bedroom. There are several options for home additions, depending on your existing footprint and needs.

Here are some types you can explore in your home.

1. Room addition

If you have plenty of unused yard space, you can build a second master suite, gym, playroom, or a bathroom. Room additions create a sizeable and functional space that you can incorporate fabulous things in.

This home addition should seamlessly blend with your existing architecture, so it looks like it was part of the original home. Hire a professional contractor as they can quickly achieve this quality.

2. Bump out

If you aren’t ready to add a full main floor to your home, consider a bump-out. It is simply an expansion of an existing room in your house, making it more sizeable. For instance, you can add a bump-out to your kitchen to create more square footage for a larger seating area.

Bump outs cost less than room additions because of their smaller scale, but they also involve adding a roofline and foundation.

3. Patio addition

Patios are ideal outdoor spaces for enjoying the warm weather and entertaining guests. Enclosed patios are especially convenient as you can use them all year round.

Most local building codes prohibit the building of home additions but accept enclosed patios. This makes it an ideal solution for adding to your living space while staying compliant with the laws.

4. Room conversion addition

You may already have space in your home that needs to be converted into a functional room. For instance, you can turn your garage or basement into a new kitchen or office.
