A home addition is a great way to not only increase the size of your home but its overall value too. As your family and space continue to grow, an addition can save you the stress of having to move to increase home space. It also gives you the opportunity to customize a number of rooms and bring your dream home designs to life. Let’s look at some of the benefits of a home addition so you can come up with a design and space that suits your needs.

What is a Home Addition?

Have you ever thought about adding more space to your home? Maybe there’s another family member who’s ready to move in with you? Or maybe you want to increase your income by renting out space in your home. A home addition allows you to do this by adding another room or living space to increase the size of your home. An addition can come in a variety of room options such as a new or larger kitchen, a second story above the garage, an additional bedroom or living room space, a garage, and a year-round sunroom. The possibilities are endless with home additions.

Additional Space

Many older homes are limited in their use of space. An addition allows you to expand your home’s square footage and add a multitude of uses. Some of the most common reasons homeowners may want additional space in their home include:

  • Family member moving in 
  • An additional bedroom
  • More driveway space
  • Expanding the kitchen for increased functionality
  • Creating an office or another personal space

An addition can give you the space you need without having to go through an entire home renovation or move to another home. 

Extra Room to Rent Out

Renting out the space in your home is a great way to earn additional income. An addition like another bedroom or apartment suite allows you to enjoy the privacy you want while earning extra income. Your contractor will work with you to ensure that your new rental space meets all building codes and guidelines. Remember it’s important to provide a living space that is safe and comfortable for tenants. You will be surprised at how easy it is to add on a rental or guest suite with all the amenities such as a kitchenette, bathroom, and sleeping space.

Improves Value of Home

The resale market in Ontario is competitive so it’s important for homeowners to offer as many perks and benefits to make their homes more attractive. An addition is an excellent way to increase the space and add value to your home. This can include additional bedrooms, improved kitchen space, or even a garage. Talk to your contractor and a real estate expert about how a home addition can add value to your home. They can also provide insight into what homeowners are looking for, and how you can ensure that your addition will add long-lasting value and appeal to your home.

Increased Storage

One of the most popular reasons for home addition is the need for more space. Over time, it’s easy to accumulate a lot of stuff. Sometimes homes are just too small to accommodate the needs of growing families or collectors. Whether you need more storage space for your hobby or to store away your kid’s toys, a home addition gives you the opportunity to customize your new living space to meet your specific storage needs. Think about how your family could use the space to make staying organized more effective. Does your addition need more closet or drawer space to accommodate a new family member living with you? Are you building a garage and need to ensure you can properly store your tools? Your contractor will be able to provide you with a variety of storage options that are both stylish and functional.

Improves Traffic Flow and Layout

Having too many things can impede the flow of traffic in your home. That’s why a home addition is an excellent option for homeowners who want to improve the layout of their homes and improve traffic flow. A busy household can feel like everyone is constantly running into each other. An addition allows you to improve the layout of your home by creating a natural flow for both living and entertaining. A kitchen addition, for example, can allow you to add an enhanced dining area or expand your cooking space. Or maybe it’s time to add a kid’s playroom to keep all the toys and activities in one space. When planning your home addition, consider how you can ease the congestion in your home and better utilize your living space.
