Luxury property? Check. Sea view? Check. New home addition?

Living by the ocean in California has its perks. For one, it’s California, and the weather is always glorious, and that means the ocean is perpetually sparkling. While many homes may not need revamping, a home addition could just do the trick to turn your California home into a high-end property. Fortunately, there are several ways that you can add on without compromising the structural integrity or quality of your home. With the right planning and construction team in place, you could be on your way to a brand new and improved Home Sweet Home!

Check out a handful of these additions that would work well with beach-front properties:

Add a Garage
The California sun can take a toll on vehicles, especially when it comes to the paint. Add the salt water breeze, and you could be asking for rust and paint damage. Garages are ideal for storing your vehicles, protecting them from damage and danger. What’s more, garages make great storage space for things you can’t keep inside, such as gardening supplies. Don’t think that a garage addition will eat away at your wallet either – unlike many additions, it doesn’t need finished flooring or tiles, drywall, cooling and heating ducts, or even high-quality paint.

Build a Deck
If you’re in California and by the beach, chances are you’re going to want to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and salty air. With the gorgeous weather, having a deck makes for a great addition that works for you all year round. Decks let you enjoy great climates and even entertain guests, all from the comfort of your home. A high-quality deck also increases the value of your home, while being an affordable addition.

Expand the Kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of the home, right? So why not make it a warm, welcoming place! Expanded kitchens are attractive, letting in plenty of natural light and providing enough space for the whole family to enjoy. A larger kitchen means that you’ll get to enjoy a bigger pantry, more storage, and much more workspace. It also gives you an opportunity to install energy-efficient appliances, which could earn you a tax deduction!
