Need more space in your home? Viable options include building a home addition, repurposing your current space, or moving. Most people prefer not to move, and when space is already designated, repurposing may not be an option. Adding square footage to your existing home can offer a great solution to your need for more space.
At Dependable Home Services, we understand that the need for more space can present itself, leaving homeowners frustrated. We help homeowners get the remodeling they need in a timely fashion, and on budget.
Get the Space You Need at Home
Space can be created by either building up (adding a story to your home or above your garage) or building out (creating more space by adding to your first story), depending on your needs. Adding onto your home increases its square footage and therefore boosts your home value. Popular home remodeling projects include kitchen, sunroom, bathroom, mother-in-law suite, and basement or attic renovation.
How to Know You Need a Home Addition
Is your family growing?
If you’re expecting a new baby, you may need a home addition. Adding a bedroom can boost your resale value and make your daily life more enjoyable.
Are your senior parents moving in?
Many homes don’t have a mother-in-law suite, so when loved ones need care and your home is their most feasible option, a home addition can solve the situation and create the perfect space for their needs. Thoughtful touches such as grab bars and wheelchair-friendly doorways can help put out the welcome mat for your loved ones and simplify their daily life.
Do you need a garage?
Sometimes homes are built without a garage. A garage offers you wonderful space to work on projects and store things. It provides a layer of protection for your vehicles, and makes your brief walk to the car each day a pleasant one. Bypass the freezing cold trip to the car when it snows, and skip the trouble of bringing groceries in during rainstorms by investing in a new garage.
Do your children need more room to play?
Let’s face it, there are a lot of items that go along with raising children. From infant swings, walkers, and strollers to toy boxes, books, and a desk for homework, space is needed to raise kids. Refinishing a basement, or adding a family room or sunroom can all provide excellent space for your kids to enjoy.
Is your kitchen too small for your family?
Your kitchen is the heart of your home, and provides your family with a welcome space to create and enjoy meals. It’s important to have ample space for multiple people to be in the kitchen at once. And it’s necessary to have enough storage, counter space, and room for your family to enjoy meals together.
Do you need another bathroom?
When you have too many people and too few bathrooms, chaos can result in the mornings. Nobody likes to have to wait for a commode or shower when their schedule is tight. Bypass the possible family squabbles that can result with too few bathrooms by adding a bathroom to your home.
Do you need a home office?
Many people work remotely, and need an office in their home. The ideal home office space is a room with a door on it to separate your office from the rest of the home. And in order to get the tax deduction Uncle Sam promises those with a home office, your office needs to be used exclusively for work. It can’t double as a guest bedroom.
Do you need a larger living area?
Great rooms are popular in today’s market, and they provide families with an awesome space to connect and enjoy life together. Sometimes a wall can be removed between the kitchen and the existing living space to create an open space where those in the kitchen can easily interact with those in the living space.
Do you need a mudroom?
Mudrooms offer several advantages to homeowners. First of all, they keep the dirt out of your flooring, helping it last longer and look great! Next, they provide an organizational space where things like boots, umbrellas, coats, and even sports equipment can be stored on the way into your home, and picked up—by you and your family—on the way out of your home.
Is your home filled with clutter?
There are negative psychological impacts of a clutter-filled home. It can contribute to stress and fatigue, and impact your mental and physical health. When papers pile up on your desk, toys clutter your living space, and clothing hinders your view of your carpet, it’s time for change. If you’re looking to rent a storage unit just to accommodate your possessions, it’s likely you need more space in your home. Consider a home remodel to create the space you need.
Do you want more out of daily life?
