Home additions are a great way to transform your home and give your family the space they always dreamed of. There are many reasons to add on to your existing home and whatever they may be, Kimber Construction can assist. Here are a few examples of why homeowners decide to go with additions.
One of the main reasons homeowners bring up for updating their home is more space. A home addition can add to your usable square footage, whether it is a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or family room. Small additions can also provide big results. Adding a few feet to a small kitchen or bathroom can make the world of difference.
Whether you choose to add a living room, dining room or maybe even a new bedroom, a home addition will provide the extra space you know you want.
Housing Extra Family Members
There is a growing trend of young adults moving back home. In addition, elders are choosing to move in with their children for a multitude of reasons.
Home additions can include an entire bedroom and bathroom. The extra bedroom and bathroom would be perfect for out of town guests as well.
Home additions can get expensive, but when it comes to family, it is well worth the investment.
Rent It Out for Additional Income
If you choose to build a full bedroom and bathroom, homeowners could also rent out the additional space. It’s not the most common route to take for home additions, but can serve as a secondary income stream which can help pay for the addition.
Add Value to Your Home
As a homeowner, don’t assume that adding more space always increases the value of your home. That is not always true. While a home addition could add value to your home in the long run, that is not always the case. If you are building a home addition with the goal of increasing your home’s value, we highly recommend doing your research or contacting a real estate professional first.
Home Additions Can Be Cheaper than Moving
Home additions will almost always be cheaper than moving. Something that should not be underestimated when moving is the huge hassle of packing, hiring movers and reorganizing that comes with it. Additionally, some aspects of a home additions can begin before the construction moves into your existing home.
