Things to Consider When Considering a Room Addition

Bathroom Addition

Need more space? Is your family getting larger? Are your children growing up and need more space? Do you need a mother-in-law suit now? How about a man cave for those big games? A room addition might be the way to go.

A room addition is a perfect solution to adding space to a home you already love. There are so many options available and it is important to talk with an experienced home remodeling company to review your home and give you options of renovating your current space or adding an addition to your home to suit your needs.

Room Additions

Ideas of rooms to either renovate or add to your home:

  • Kitchen
  • Laundry room
  • Mud room
  • Master suite
  • Bedrooms
  • Living room
  • Bathrooms
  • Screen porch
  • Sunroom
  • Pool house
  • In law suite
  • Teen suite


It is important that you establish the purpose of the renovation or addition and review the floorplan of your existing home to see who you can achieve your purpose. A full-service home remodeling and renovation company is the place to start that discussion.

Increase value of home

Increase the value of your home by adding a room. Room additions not only open up a small home but adds value. You’ll want to make sure that adding square footage to your home makes sense. Are you already the largest home in your neighborhood? Always consider resale value when considering a big decision like this one.

Research zoning and neighborhood deed restrictions

Most cities have rules about what you can build and where especially when you’re building an addition. Are there any zoning restrictions to consider? Does your neighborhood HOA or Deed have restrictions? Check with your local building department as you begin your project planning or let your home remodeling company do it.

Keep the integrity of your home

How will your addition tie into the house? Adding onto a home requires experience and knowledge to make it look like it belongs. You’ll want to consider how the roofline connects to the house, how you’ll compliment the style of the house, from the interior and exterior finish materials to the windows, utilities and HVAC.

Funding the addition

Obviously, you will need to figure out how you will pay for the renovation or addition. You’ll need to get a solid estimate from a trusted contractor. Then, you can look at your finances and determine if you’ll pay cash, get an equity line or refinance your home mortgage. 

Questions to ask your future Home Remodeling Company

This will be an important step in moving forward with changing your home. Here are some questions and research to do prior to hiring the company that will do the renovation and/or addition:

  1. What type of experience in home additions?
  2. Are they licensed, bonded and insured?
  3. What is the estimate for the project?
  4. How long will the project take? Show a specific timeframe.
  5. Can they tie the addition into the existing house?
  6. Will they get the necessary permits?
