Expanding your home’s available living space is an excellent alternative to buying and moving to a new home. You also have a lot of flexibility when it comes to the kind of home addition project you want to undertake. There are many different kinds of home additions, each designed to meet certain budgets and specific needs. Read on as Empire State Builders and Contractors, a top home building services provider, talks about four kinds of home additions:
Garage Conversion – Converting a garage into a general living space is a great idea because most of the structure you need is already there. For example, you can use the existing wiring and outlets. However, you need to remember a few things. Your garage conversion needs to blend in with the rest of the house on the outside and its layout needs to match your interior. You also need to add HVAC ducts to the converted garage and perhaps some additional insulation.
Room Addition – This is simply building and adding one new room to the house. Example home additions can include a new guest room, dining room, family room, bedroom, living room and more. Room additions add a lot of value to your home, but remember that building a whole new section of your house can be complicated.
Conservatory – This is a specific kind of room addition. Conservatories are designed to showcase flora. You can think of them as a premium sunroom. A conservatory is a great place to relax, chat with guests and enjoy the beautiful view of your landscape without having to worry about bad weather.
Bump Out – A bump out is a scaled down version of a room addition. You can think of it as a room expansion instead of a true addition. For example, a bump out can add 50 square feet to your kitchen or convert a powder room into a spacious bathroom. Bump-outs are a great choice if you want more space to transform your current rooms.
