Home Addition Ideas to Increase Your Square Footage

You bought your home for a reason, and maybe you still love it, even if your family’s make up or your lifestyle has drastically shifted since you first purchased it. Why not consider a home addition or remodel to solve your space issues? Read more below for ideas to consider when planning how to increase your home’s functional space.

Along with expanding your available living space or renovating to improve the form and function of your home, you can increase the value of your home, if you renovate right and choose modifications that future home buyers might find desirable. However, the enjoyment of improving your home for the rest of your time living in it might far outweigh what money you get back when it is time to sell. The first part of planning a home addition is finding inspiration.

Below are some home addition ideas that can help inspire your next home improvement project!

1. Turn An Attached Garage Into An Extra Room

2. Plan A Second Story
3. Put A Room Over The Garage
4. Include A Modular Home Addition
5. Build A Dormer
6. Finish Your Basement
7. Renovate Your Attic
8. Change The Front Porch Into A Sunroom
9. Convert A Mudroom Into A Home Office
10. Get Creative With The Back Patio By Adding A Roof Or Enclosure
