As the holiday season approaches, many homeowners begin contemplating remodeling their home to accommodate out of town guests, growing families, and social celebrations. In this three part series, Parker Design Build Remodel shares our experience, tips, and insight to help you maximize your space and make your home more inviting for the holidays and beyond. But, don’t delay! Time is ticking and now is the right time to get your holiday remodeling project underway so it will be completed before your guests arrive!
Part 3: Home Additions That Add Value
Whether your family is outgrowing your home or you just don’t have room to accommodate out of town guests, a home addition may help expand your living space and potentially increase the long-term value of your home. More importantly, adding an addition can cost less than purchasing a larger home to accommodate your growing needs.
Master Bedroom EnSuite
Are you ready to realize your dream of a spacious master bedroom, a connected bath, and all the latest accessories? An addition of this type can significantly increase the enjoyment of a home in a very personal and private way. It can also free up other space in the home for guests, especially during the holidays! According to the 2015 Remodeling Impact Report, “Adding a 20×20 addition with mid-range fixtures and finishes has a national median cost of $112,500.” So, make sure your budget is realistically aligned with your vision. In addition to your personal preferences, make sure you consider local trends, homebuyers wish lists, and what is typical for your neighborhood when choosing fixtures and finishes. If you over-improve, you may not have the opportunity to maximize your investment.
Sunrooms Expand Your Living & Entertaining Area
A sunroom addition comes in many shapes and sizes and can provide additional living and entertaining space when the house is full. Here in Maryland, we often build four-season sunrooms that allow the homeowner to utilize the space all year long, especially during the holiday season. Four season sunrooms typically have insulation in the floors, ceiling, and walls. Often, a mini-split unit is installed so that the homeowner can quickly and efficiently heat or cool the space. Decorating a sunroom for the holidays helps lure guests into the room, often with beautiful views of the backyard, pool or waterfront.
