If you need more space in your house, consider an addition rather than searching for a larger home. For many homeowners, it is a smart investment that increases livable square footage while boosting a home’s value. Even if you intend to sell your home shortly, you’ll likely recoup around 60 percent of your renovation costs, according to Remodeling’s 2020 Cost Vs. Value Report.
Additions can be grand, such as building on second additions or two-story spaces, but they don’t need to be. From bump-outs to micro-additions, there are plenty of smaller ways that will greatly impact your home’s comfort while optimizing your floor plan. For example, enhance an addition with small tricks like installing a glass wall to take an otherwise boxy annex from dark and closed to bright and airy.
Here are 13 small, large, and unexpected home additions to inspire your renovation plans.
