Maybe you need a bigger kitchen or another bedroom for your growing family but don’t want to move. Putting on a home addition gives your household the extra space you need and can add value to your property if you sell. If you plan to stay in your current home for a while, why not make it truly your own with an addition that gives you some breathing room.
At Ace Construction & Remodeling, Inc., we can help you balance your buildout by considering the return on investment with every decision you make for your home in East Central Indiana.
Weigh the Pros and Cons of Home Expansion
When you add onto your house, you can expand your living room, create a more functional kitchen, or give your children their own bedrooms. You may save money when compared to finding a new home, and you can customize your home to fit your lifestyle.
You should also consider whether you want to lose the space. If you live on a small lot, interior additions may limit your outdoor living area. Plus, if you aren’t careful, you can spend too much money, making it difficult to recover your expenses if you sell.
Carefully consider the pros and cons before beginning your home addition.
What Room Should You Add?
Here are some of the most common home expansions that also make sense from an ROI perspective:
- Kitchen: Suppose your kitchen doesn’t have enough space for storage, proper ergonomics, and the appliances you need to put a meal on the table. In that case, you might want to meet with one of our team members to create a mockup of your dream kitchen. We can help you set and stick to a budget and deliver a beautiful space that complements the rest of your home perfectly. Opening up the kitchen by adding a few extra feet or knocking down a non-load-bearing wall can make your home seem less segmented.
- Bathroom: If your home was built in the 70s or 80s, it may only have one bathroom. That’s a problem if you have guests or children and everyone wants to get ready at the same time. We often find space that makes sense such as converting a closet or oversized bedroom into a bathroom or powder room. You can also expand your master bath to create a spa-like master suite you may never want to leave.
- Home Office: More people work from home than ever before. With this in mind, it might be time to build an addition for a functional home office. If you’re currently working off the dining room table or a converted closet, designing and adding a dedicated home office may help you increase your productivity.
- Carefully consider the pros and cons before beginning your home addition.
