If you’re looking to increase the available space in your home without purchasing a whole new house, one of the top options available to you is a home addition. Home additions are hugely valuable for a variety of potential homeowners, from those growing their family to those making lifestyle changes that require upgraded space.
At Falk Construction Inc., we offer quality home additions for any kind of space addition you’re looking into. What are some of the popular room types we’re most commonly asked about among those considering these renovations? While this will depend in large part on the property space you have available and budgetary factors, here are several options at your disposal.
One of the most common home additions, particularly among those with growing families, is the addition of a new bedroom. And while this may be a popular type, it’s also one of the larger additions and requires a general contractor with the skills and design experience to ensure proper aesthetics and structural quality both inside and outside. Our contractors will sit down with you to discuss everything from materials and style to the blending of this new addition with the current structure of your home.
Another popular recent trend for a room addition is the “California Room.” This is a combination indoor-outdoor space that appears in some ways like a sunroom, but is bumped up to an additional outdoor portion. Some people consider it to be a porch that’s extended to inside their house.
For those looking for entertainment and relaxation upgrades, the California Room is a great option. It can be applied to kitchen spaces, living rooms or virtually anywhere on the lower floor if you have the space available.
In other cases, homeowners choose to create a room addition in an area where the space is already present, but is being used for other purposes. Garage conversions are becoming more and more popular in recent years – they can be turned into everything from a bedroom to a study or even a kids’ game room. Some larger garages can even be converted into multiple separate rooms.
Another common choice for growing families is a new laundry room, which can replace a cramped space you may have had previously. A full room here offers both convenience and space.
For those who want a bit more space but don’t want to take the full leap into an entire new room, the bump-out is an addition that adds space to a current room. It can increase the size of a bedroom, kitchen, bathroom or many others with some simple changes, allowing the room to retain its primary qualities while also increasing space and storage capability.
