Have you found yourself needing a home improvement to add living space to your home? The kids have all grown into big busy teens, and you are out of room. Or your adult child or parents need to move in, and it is getting crowded.
You need to add space, but how? There are several ways to gain room in your home without leaving home for a new one.
Consider the following ideas and then call the professionals at Georgia Home Remodeling to help you design the perfect room addition to your home.
Starting right is the best way to ensure your home improvement project goes off seamlessly. The best way to be positive the project will give you the best return on investment is to develop a plan and talk with a home remodeling company. Then ask two or three appraisers to assess the projects.
At that point, you can begin with the plan that satisfies ROI and your home improvement needs. Here are a few ideas to start your creative process.
Capturing an area already utilizing the foundation of the home or perhaps even the roof is an easy addition to make to your home. When you enclose a patio or porch, it can be with full walls, AC and heat included, or you can turn the area into a sunroom with window walls. That part is up to the functionality of the room you need.
Sunrooms make excellent family room additions and even home offices or school rooms. There are several ways to go about the addition depending on the place it will become. If you are making it into a new bedroom, you may want to completely close it in, save for a couple of windows.
If the new room needs a bit more structure and some HVAC, the home improvement specialists can advise on that.
Either way, this is one of the more involved projects adding to the square footage of your home as well. Losing garage space may not be an option for some, so you may consider going vertical. A room over the garage is a relatively straight forward process and is usually less invasive than a full room addition to the main home.
This type of space can create many things, from a new bedroom to a mini apartment or a game room. And, going vertical takes up no land or floor space in the existing home.
Is the bathroom too small? Do you need more room in the kitchen? You can even add a whole new room onto the house with a bump-out addition.
This type of home improvement is non-invasive in the beginning. The foundation gets added, then the walls and roof can go up. At that point, the original house will need to be breached. That is where the more invasive construction begins. But the professional contractors putting the bump-out onto your home know just how to keep the dust and noise to a minimum.
Now, this is a BIG project, but it is one worth the time and expense. Going up a floor is another project that starts relatively non-invasive, then the roof is opened up, and the stairs are put in. Most of the construction will be done without ever even needing to come into the home.
A few things are essential when considering a second story. First, you must be sure the current home can take the weight, and the proper structures are in place for the addition. Then it would be best if you had someone draw up plans for the new roofline to ensure your return on investment and home beautification project.
As stated earlier, finishing out an existing structure is a great idea. The bones are already there, capturing the space is easy. A finished attic or basement can be a perfect child’s room or family game/media room. It could become an office or even a bedroom. The sky is the limit.
If you need more space and are considering any of the above additions, your imagination will be brimming with creative solutions. But just how those plans come into existence may evade you.
