Everyone deserves a personal retreat. A place to call your own, a place to unwind and relax, and somewhere that is simply ‘you’.

A room addition is exactly how it sounds, and it’s the perfect home renovation idea if you are looking for extra space. Room additions are added to any room, for example, think of changing your boring and quiet spare bedroom into a fully decked-out home theater, or adding a simple and small book nook area into the master bedroom. Whether you decide to go for wild or mild, it’s very important that you hire the right contractors and professionals who know all about home renovation, are licensed and insured, and can give you exactly what you want with flawless execution!
What is a Room Addition Considered?
Anything you can afford within your own personal budget can be a potential room addition or enhancement. Some hot ideas that are trending for room additions include sunrooms, modular octagons, kitchen extensions, decks, porches, lookouts, book nooks, garage conversions, and conservatories. Literally, anything that extends any living area is considered a room addition. Whether it is for you or your family, it will be a new retreat. They are very popular when it comes to renovation ideas and adding extra spaces to your home, and they can also boost the overall price of your home when it comes to selling.
Why You Should Think About a Room Addition
So, you want one, isn’t that enough of a reason? Yes! But there are many other reasons why you should consider a room addition somewhere in your home. Why? There are many reasons, but the top three include extra space, boosted home appraisal, and making an area more ‘you’. These might seem like simple reasons, but let me assure you, they really will change the way your home looks and feels. Consider one of those areas in your home that is simply awkward – you can’t decorate around it and you can’t hide it. It can become something more with just a little bit of addition work! The possibilities truly are endless and you can add spaces anywhere within your home or outside of it, it’s all up to what you are looking for. Also, always remember to hire professional (licensed and insured) home specialists to ensure that what you want comes out exactly how you have imagined.
What is the Process Like?
The process of your room or outdoor addition will depend on the size of the project as well as how complex the project is. Some projects are relatively simple, such as adding a deck to your backyard. Others are more complex, such as adding a walk-in closet to your bedroom that only has a tiny closet area existing currently. Don’t let that scare you – room additions are truly so simple that many people turn them into DIY projects (if you’re looking for something quick, this is not the way to go unless you know exactly what you’re doing). A team of professionals can create a room addition in the matter of a few short weeks and it is highly cost-effective (DIY would cost more in the long run). The process begins with understanding your needs and wants, then formulating a plan that will flatter these desires. Shortly after, a team of experts will come out to look at the area and design a functionable addition with the space you have. From there, the team will design your dream room addition, and really, all you will have to worry about is how you will decorate the area when it is completed.
Before becoming completely overwhelmed, remember that an experienced team of construction professionals or contractors will handle everything from planning to installation and clean up. Also, money spent on a room addition will not go to waste – it will increase the value of your home and boost your own personal comfort. Modifications can easily be made, and future buyers will be pleasantly surprised with a home that contains room additions, whether they are big or small. Long story short – a room addition (whether it’s small or large) can make any area more of a private retreat and a peaceful area than it was before.
