The Best Places For Room Additions in Denver

September 27, 2017

Are you thinking of adding another room to your home? One of the most popular types of room additions in Denver is known as a bump out, which is a room that hangs off of the side of your house. This type of room addition is popular because it does not require a new foundation, which means homeowners will be able to save money on the project. In fact, it’s estimated that bump outs are between 15 and 30 percent less expensive than complete room additions. Where should your bump out go? Here are a few of the best places:

Near the Kitchen

Homeowners often add a bump out to the kitchen area to create more space in the heart of the home. A bump out in this location can be used to expand the size of the kitchen or to create a small seating area that is just a few steps away from the kitchen. This is a great way to upgrade your kitchen without going through major renovations.

Walk-In Closets

If the closet in your master suite is too small, consider adding a bump out to your home to expand its size. A bump out can completely transform the space that you have to store your clothing. A small, cramped closet with simple rods and shelves can be turned into the luxurious walk-in closet of your dreams. This project will increase the value of your home and make you more comfortable within your master suite. Learn how to design a master suite with a walk-in closet.


A bump out can also be added onto the master suite in order to increase the size of the master bathroom. For example, let’s say your current master suite only has a shower, but you want to be able to unwind in a hot bubble bath after work. You don’t need a lot of square footage to fit a tub into your bathroom, so this dream can become a reality by adding a bump out.

Extra Features

Some homeowners choose to add a tiny bump out just so they can enhance their home’s current design. Have you always wanted a quiet place where you can go to read your favorite book? Consider creating a bump out with a window seat and bookshelves on either side of it. Homeowners that entertain a lot of guests may want a bump out so they can build a state-of-the-art bar in their home. It’s your home, so add whatever features will make you enjoy living there the most!
