Home additions are great for enhancing both the form and function of your home. Today, Sturdy Home Improvement takes a closer look at the different types of home additions that you can consider for your next home improvement project.
Garage conversion is one of the most common home additions, largely because the garage is already a room. Garage conversions often involve replacing the door, adding more electrical outlets, changing the flooring and ceiling, as well as adding a few windows.
A bump out is a type of home addition designed to increase the floor area of a certain room, the most common examples of this are kitchen bump outs. A bump out often requires creating a protrusion from the home, hence the name. This also means that this home addition requires extra roofing, siding and windows that match the rest of the home.
Also known as a home addition, a room addition is basically just adding an entire room to the house. This is considered a large-scale version of a bump-out but instead of extending part of an existing home area, you’re creating a completely new one. Room additions cost a lot more than the previous two additions, but they also add more value to the home.
Sunrooms and Observatories
Sun rooms and observatories are similar in the way that they feature a lot of glass panes. A sunroom is mostly designed to let natural sunlight enter the room, while an observatory is designed to provide an open view of vegetation surrounding the room. Getting either type of home addition will require help from certified window contractors like Sturdy Home Improvement.
