Is your Hamilton County home starting to feel a little small? Maybe you’ve added to your family unexpectedly or you’ve taken on hobbies or projects that take up more room than you expected. Whatever your reason, a room addition might be the perfect way to add space without having to move out of the home you love. Today on the blog, the friendly team at MJ Brown Renovations is discussing the four types of home additions so you can decide which is best for you.
1. Room Addition
A room addition is when you add an entirely new room to your home. If you have space available on your lot, you can knock down an exterior wall and add a room to the space. Popular uses for room additions include an elegant dining room, an additional bedroom, or an extra bathroom.
2. Bump Out
If you aren’t in need of a full-size addition, a bump out might be a good option for you. Typically bump-outs are used to enhance an existing space. Many homeowners like this option for making a small kitchen larger or turning a small closet into a luxurious walk-in closet.
A sunroom is a great option for homeowners who want a versatile space for relaxing or entertaining. Sunrooms have a range of style options that you can easily customize and tweak to your own personal style. You’ll love the opportunity to enjoy sunrise breakfasts as well as late-night conversations with friends and family.
4. Basement Finishing
Sometimes adding on to your home means transforming existing square footage into a useable space. If you have an unfinished basement in your Carmel home, you’re sitting on a great investment opportunity. Not only will finishing your basement improve your current living situation, but it will also add value to your home should you ever decide to sell. Use the space for a bonus room, a media room, or even additional bedrooms so your kids no longer need to share.
