Types of Home Additions That Add Value to Your Home

If you are looking to build a new home addition, then this year is a great time to do it. Online remodeling searches have increased by more than 100% between 2020 to 2022, which means many people are on the same wavelength as you.


House value aside, there are plenty of good reasons to build an addition. Additions can make your home layout more practical and provide much-needed space for a growing family. If you are finding your existing layout cramped and uncomfortable, adding an addition can make your home more enjoyable to live in.


Another benefit of building an addition is that it allows you to avoid the hassle of moving. While building an addition is a significant investment, it may well be cheaper than selling your house and upgrading to a larger home. If you’re trying to decide whether to extend or move, compare the amount you would have to spend on a larger house — including moving expenses — to the cost of building an addition. If you find that building an addition ends up significantly cheaper and you're generally happy with your home's location, you may be better off staying put. Check out a few of the various additions to consider below.


Finish Your Basement

If you have a rough or unfinished basement, then this might be the year to finish it! A converted basement can provide you with extra living space, including more sitting room for you and your family. It's a great option for people who have large families. If you don't have a basement but do have an old attic, then you can also finish or convert it to get the same benefits.



Add an Extra Bedroom

Have you ever looked at home prices and noticed how much more an extra bedroom adds to its value? That makes it critical to consider adding one to your home. Even if you never plan on selling your home, just think of what you can do with an extra bedroom. It'll be easier to have guests over for long periods, and you can even rent it out to make a little side income.


Add a Sunroom

A sunroom is a fantastic home addition because it can provide a comfortable place to sit and relax throughout the year. You can have one with wide windows that open up during the summer and panels that shut to add more insulation during the winter. These factors make a sunroom a great option, particularly if you love getting fresh air but have few places to enjoy nature inside your home.



Create a Bump Out

A bump out is an extension you can add to any room in your house. For example, you can add a five foot by five foot bump out to a bedroom to give it 25 extra square feet. This option is a great choice if you want to expand your home but don't have the budget for a full-sized extra room. It’s particularly beneficial for smaller homes that already have a snug room setup.
