Benefits of A House Addition

Home additions are a great way to transform your home and give your family the necessary amenities and space you've always dreamed of. While some people are just looking to remodel, others are looking for the benefits that a home addition can provide such as added space, potential rental income, etc.  There are many other advantages to investing in a home addition.

1. Home additions give you more space. This one's kind of obvious,  huh? One of the first things all homeowners bring up when they are updating their home is more space. A home addition can greatly add to your usable square footage, whether it be in the form of a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or family room. Sometimes, even a very small addition can yield big results.

2. House extra family members. This is actually not a benefit to me, but maybe if you like your in-laws? A recent study showed that almost 40% of young adults live at home with their parents. If you have the space, home additions can include an entire bedroom. In fact, if the plumbing allows for it, you can even add a small bathroom or extra guest bathroom. The extra bedroom and bathroom would be perfect for out of town guests as well.

3. Additional income? If you choose to add on and that includes a full bedroom and bathroom, you could also rent out the additional space.

4. Add value to your home. Now, you need to do your research before fully committing to a home addition. Fred Oakley has the experience you need to help make the decision on whether an addition will yield a profit or not.

5. Add natural sunlight! This one is a huge plus for me. Who doesn't want a sunroom to lounge in on a gorgeous Saturday morning? When property owners think of home additions, oftentimes, they think of a sunroom. They cost less than full-scale room additions and they give you just as much square footage. Sunrooms can also add some natural sunlight to the surrounding rooms.
