Adding a home addition allows families to age in place, rather than relocating to another property. Read on to discover the most common reasons for a home addition, and call Matthews Construction & Design to discuss your project.
A Growing Family
If your family is growing, you may need more space than you already have. The addition of a child is often easy to accommodate, but as they grow older they need more space. There are also other ways that families grow, however, including adding older family members who need to age-in-place. And addition is a great way to get that extra living space, be it a small dormer that adds a new bedroom, or a full basement remodel to add a small apartment.
A Deck Or Sunroom
Adding a deck is a common remodeling project because it gives people a usable outdoor space for entertaining, just relaxing, or cooking if they include an outdoor kitchen. A sunroom is a great way to extend the time when that outdoor space is usable, since it allows you to be comfortable even into the cooler periods of fall and earlier in the spring. Either option adds usable space for a large part of the year.
A Larger Kitchen
The kitchen is the most used room in the house, so if it isn’t meeting your needs, you’re going to be unhappy. Adding space or improving the layout of an existing kitchen is the most popular remodel project. If you need more space, a home addition could add that to make your kitchen more usable as a family gathering space. Even if all you want to do it update that kitchen, you may need to enlarge it to fit all the updates you need.
A Master Suite
Creating a master suite provides an oasis of restful relaxation. Many people opt for this renovation by adding the suite as an addition on the ground floor of the home, so that it truly is a secluded space. Once you have the space, you can add the amenities you really want, like a spa tub or heated floors.
