Make 2017 the Year You Entertain in Style with a New Home Addition

Many homeowners notice the first signs of summer by the number of people who visit their home. Are you feeling the same way? Do you notice that your children have friends over to visit more often or that your spouse or partner has more visitors during the summer months?

Call us to discuss a home addition if you’re starting to feel like your home simply isn’t big enough anymore and you need more space.

You might be enjoying having all your friends and family over, but are you wondering what you are going to do with them all when the weather gets cooler or a storm rolls in? We definitely understand and we recommend that if space is tight inside your home, that you consider building or remodeling the interior of your home to make the most of existing space.

A home addition can be placed in the perfect spot where it will blend in with the original architecture of your home and it will add the space that you need. While the size of your yard might dictate the size of your addition, the only other restrictions that you will have include your budget and your imagination. Remodeling the interior of your home to maximize space could be the simpler solution if you don’t have room to expand the structure of your home.

Since the addition is being built from scratch, you will get to choose the flooring, the wall color, the lighting fixtures, and anything else that finds its way into the space. While the idea of the addition is to add an entertainment area to your home, that shouldn’t stop you from using it for other things as well. If you have enough space, you can add a small office area or even a small gym. These can be placed off to the side or even separated with the use of a wall.

A bathroom is another great option for this space, because more people means that the people waiting in line for the most popular space in the house will be longer. You do not need to install a full-bath, a half-bath should be sufficient and can be tucked away on one side of the room or even in the office or gym space.

Here are a few items that you should include in your new addition:

  • Comfortable seating
  • A table with chairs for playing games
  • A large screen television for watching movies or playing video games
  • A bar area is perfect for both entertaining and hanging out as a family – adding a sink and small refrigerator will add even more appeal
  • Surround sound is a feature that will add value to your home

A home addition is a great way to add more space to the inside your home, especially if you turn it into a space that you can use multiple ways. Give us a call at 312-714-5454 if you’re in the greater Chicago area and would like to discuss building or remodeling with us.
