Before selling your home just because it no longer meets your needs, consider the benefits of a home addition. Whether your family is growing or your needs have changed, a new addition can provide that extra space or missing comfort. It can also boost function and add value you can benefit from down the road.
Four Elements Construction can always find a way to turn your current home into a dream space with home additions in Edmonton.
One of the main benefits of adding to your home is the addition of that extra square footage. Typically, these are done with a whole room addition or bump out and are intended for a specific use. For example, that could be an extra bedroom or bathroom or expanding the living room to create extra space. Bump-outs are similar but focus on adding more space to an existing area. Popular in kitchens, a bump out can create a new breakfast nook or, in the bathroom, turn it into a full three-piece ensuite.
If you love your home and location but need more space, a second-storey addition is a great option. Not only does a second storey add significant square footage, but it also adds resale value. However, keep in mind that this is one of the more costly major renovations in Edmonton. But, a second storey can let you stay in a location and home you love for many more years. With the new level, you’ll need to consider like new plumbing for a bathroom or connecting the HVAC. Before starting any plans, talk with a professional to ensure your home structure can support the addition.
This is one of the more popular additions and can be done in a few different ways. A full basement addition provides extra square footage and full privacy for a new suite using the space you already have. An expansion on the main floor can also be done to add a separate bedroom, bathroom, and living suite. Another option if you have the backyard space is placing a suite there instead.
While designing your in-law suite, customize the design to your needs. Talk with your contractor about the best location and layout for the new suite addition.
Transform the garage
Another way to maximize home additions in Sherwood Park is to look at existing spaces outside the home, like the garage. The garage itself can be converted into a new living space, given a bump out for extra cars, or add a workstation. Another way to add value and potentially new income is adding a room or suite over the garage. That space can be rented out for extra income, and down the road, owners can move in and rent the main home instead.
