The pandemic has left its mark on the world in many ways. One unexpected effect is the dramatic increase in home renovations that have taken place. A NerdWallet survey recently found that approximately one-third of homeowners who took on home improvement projects did so because they were spending more time at home during this health crises.
If you’re spending more time at home, you may have already realized that you could benefit from additional square footage. But how exactly can you expand your home? Home additions provide the solution. Here are just four types of home additions you may want to consider.
Expand a Bedroom
We spend a great deal of time in our bedrooms, so it makes sense that an addition or expansion can be a welcome change. Expanding the bedroom to make it larger and more accommodating is a simple but efficient remodeling option to consider. You might also add an extra bedroom to your home if your adult child plans to move back home or you want to move in your elderly parent.
Expand the Bathroom
Likewise, the bathroom gets a lot of use — and it creates problems if there aren’t enough bathrooms to go around. Larger families, in particular, can benefit from bathroom expansions or additions. Making a cramped bathroom more spacious can eliminate a number of issues, but so can adding an entirely new bathroom to accommodate your family’s needs.
Add a Home Office
In some cases, you might need some extra space for your changing needs. A home office space can provide you with the privacy and functionality you need to stay productive. With more Americans working from home than ever, this might be a must for your family. In many cases, this type of home addition can even come with tax incentives.
Build a Garage
If you have the space on your property to do so, you may want to consider a garage home addition. Not only can this provide you with a secure parking spot, but it can also offer additional storage. Whether attached or freestanding, a new garage is a great way to instantly increase your home’s value and your quality of life.
