What You Need to Know About Room Additions in Denver


August 1, 2018

Room additions can be a great way to improve the way your Denver home functions, and it can also improve resale value when you decide to sell your home. It can also be a daunting process. Here are some considerations to take into account before you get the project started.

Types of Additions

The term “addition” can cover a variety of different types of space one adds to a home, but it usually means adding at least a new room. Some of the more common additions are adding a family room or adding a bedroom with a bathroom. Additions can also be a great way to add space to your kitchen, to create a sheltered sun room that can be enjoyed year-round, or to add a home theater that the whole family can experience.
Other additions include converting a garage space into a master bedroom or family room or finishing the space in an attic. The addition of a second floor can add a significant amount of space to an existing home and can be a better option than moving to make room for a growing family.
When determining the best type of addition for your home, it’s a good idea to speak to an expert who can advise you on which will work best for your home and which might give you the best resale value.

The Addition Process

There is no getting around the dust and noise of a construction zone when you are undergoing an addition project, so it’s a good idea to be prepared. Depending on the addition type, you might want to consider staying elsewhere for the duration. If you have pets, you will need to make arrangements for them. If your kitchen will be part of the construction area, you will need to figure out how you will prepare meals and so forth. A second-floor addition, in particular, will be the most disruptive to your life because of the complexity.
