Home additions are a great way to upgrade your home without having to move into a new one. Maximize the potential of your home additions by following these design tips and ideas from Sturdy Home Improvement Inc.
Let the Sunlight In
Sunrooms are perfect for entertaining guests or for simply lounging around while reading a book and enjoying a cup of coffee. Sunrooms are also called sun porches, solariums, or patio rooms because they allow ideal amounts of sunlight and fresh air without exposing you to harmful elements such as ultraviolet rays. Basically, sunrooms let you experience outdoor living without the hassle that comes with actually stepping outside.
Solariums can also be used as greenhouses or indoor gardens by homeowners with a green thumb. If you’re looking for a multipurpose home addition, sunrooms are it.
Pool houses provide an elegant alternative to poolside chairs. You can use the pool house to change into and out of your swimsuit. You can also turn it into a storage hub for your pool cleaning materials and the like. Keep in mind that a pool house typically mimics the architectural style of the main house. It makes sense to contact your previous roofing and siding contractors to take on this project.
Take note that you don’t have to copy the architecture down to the last nail placement, but it helps if the styles of your dwelling and pool house match.
An Upper Level
A second-floor addition can be quite difficult to execute. There are a number of considerations to take into account when adding an upper floor, including dimensions, foundation capacity, and building permits. Once everything checks out, your home addition will not only provide habitable space, but will also increase your home’s curb appeal.
