The decision to extend one’s living space with a home addition is often easy. Who wouldn’t want more room to spread out and enjoy themselves?

Why not leave the grunt work to a team of professionals, so you can begin enjoying your home addition right away?

Top reasons to hire a home addition contractor

Adding a home addition is a less expensive alternative to moving. You can stay in the neighborhood you love, without sacrificing the amenities you need. According to the National Association of Realtors, every 1,000 square feet you add to your home correlates with a 3% increase in home value. So if you do decide to sell in the future, you will be getting a better return.

There are so many reasons to hire a crew to put an addition onto your home:

  • You need more storage space to de-clutter your main living spaces.
  • Your bedrooms are small and you want more room to accommodate a growing family.
  • You’ve always dreamt of a home movie theater, game room, bar and wine room, or hobby cove.
  • You need a dedicated home office (that you can write off as a business expense at tax-time.)
  • You would like to improve the resale value of your house by adding core space.
  • You’d like a cozy sunroom for reading the morning paper, enjoying a cup of tea, and relaxing.

Five modern trends for home additions

1. Open-Air Kitchen – Outdoor kitchen and dining spaces have been popular on the West Coast for years, but homeowners in Delaware and Pennsylvania are looking to make the most of the summer months with subterranean spaces, decks and covered patios that make entertaining family and friends more enjoyable.

2. Bedroom Add-Ons : Modern bedrooms offer much better designs than the bedrooms of old. These days, the closets are massive and a master bath is pretty much a given. You can add these features onto an existing structure so you can stay in your home, without losing the convenience of these modern amenities.

3. Opening Up The Kitchen: Americans spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing meals and chatting with guests over cocktails. So much bonding takes place in the kitchen space that many people are choosing to knock down a wall and build out this room. Sometimes there is a need for more square footage, while other times, homeowners just want to open the kitchen into the living room where their children are playing or guests are lounging. Adding a scenic solarium or an opulent dining room onto the kitchen are other popular choices.

4. Guest House: These days, families seem to be spread out all over the country. It’s a lovely treat to offer up a fully self-sufficient “cottage” environment for relatives who are visiting from out-of-town or college students who are back home on break. The exterior guest house can also serve as a workshop or studio if designed just right.

5. Sunrooms: The ever-popular sunroom or “Florida room” is still a popular type of home addition in Delaware and Pennsylvania. This project is the best complement to a nice, spacious or wooded backyard. Some people like their sunrooms to be a place for reading and conversation over a cup of tea or coffee. Others incorporate a pool into their designs and make it into a tropical resort-style oasis.
