You know the feeling; the sun is shining, birds are chirping, and it doesn’t hurt to breathe in the air anymore…
Finally—spring is here.
As you roll out of your “hibernation” and start upon your spring to-do list, you wonder if 2020 is the year to finally start your room addition. Think about it—your mother-in-law is moving in and she’ll need somewhere to sleep…or what about that sunroom you’ve been dreaming of?
No matter what you envision when you hear “room addition,” Good to Go Maintenance, a general contractor in Long Island, NY, is here to give you five reasons why room additions are extremely beneficial.
#1 Extra Space
Who doesn’t love extra room to spread out?
Whether you’re adding a bedroom, expanding your basement, or creating a side room, a room addition can increase the usable square footage within your home! With the extra room, you’ll have more space to explore your hobbies and add an extra flair to your interior decorating.
#2 Increase Your Home’s Value
When it comes to home improvement projects like room additions, you can actually increase the value of your home—which will come in handy if you’re looking to sell. If your room addition brings comfort, efficiency, or interesting architectural design, your home will be worth more than before the addition. Finished basements, in particular, can add a significant increase in sale price when the time comes to sell.
#3 You Don’t Have to Move
The kids are growing up, the in-laws are moving in, and your oldest is home from college for the summer…do you need a bigger house?
Buying a new house is costly, time-consuming, and can be an extremely stressful experience—not how anyone wants to spend their spring. With room additions, you can still live within your home and design a new space exactly the way you envision it—no hunting around required!
#4 Improve Your Space
When it comes to your home, why not have exactly the space that you envision? With room additions, you can add the perfect closet to your bedroom, a luxury bathroom to your master bedroom, a sunroom to complement your living room…the possibilities are endless.
With a room addition, you have the opportunity to add your personal style to any room—a fresh start.
#5 Rent a Room
Looking for some extra cash…how about renting out your room addition?
Build the room of your dreams, then cover the cost of the construction by renting your new space to an interested tenant. Though not the most common method, one-room rentals are always popular housing options—popular options that can be lucrative too!
