Room Additions in Denver: Here’s a Look at the Most Popular Projects

September 12, 2018

With a tight real estate market in most places these days, many homeowners who might feel they have outgrown their current home are opting to add on to their existing home rather than look for a bigger house. There are a lot of options when it comes to room additions, and Denver homeowners opt for a number of different types of projects.
Here are some of the most popular room additions for homeowners.

Master Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Also known as the “master suite,” this feature is popular among homebuyers. If you have an older home, chances are you have a smallish master bedroom that may or may not have an en suite. Homebuyers today love having roomy master suites that include a large sleeping area and sitting area, a walk-in closet (or two!), and a lavish, spa-like master bath.
Many master suite additions are added on to the back of the home or added as a new second-story space.

Family Room or Entertaining Space

It’s common today for homebuyers to seek large open areas for entertaining or hanging out as a family. Many homes don’t have this type of open space, so adding on a family room can be a great addition to the home—especially if it is open to the kitchen. These rooms are often added on to the back of the home.
Colorado residents love being outside, and a sunroom can be a way to feel like you are in the outdoors year-round. It also makes a great space for entertaining friends. Usually made up of primarily glass walls, it’s important to pick out a thermal-resistant glass to keep the space comfortable during the summer heat as well as the winter cold.

In-Law Apartments

With the aging population in this country, many people are finding that they need to take care of their parents who can no longer live on their own. Many of these elderly people still want their independence, however, and this is where an in-law apartment can be the ideal room addition project. The space can be big enough to accommodate a bedroom, bathroom, living space, and kitchen to make its residents feel comfortable and independent.

Mudrooms and Laundry Rooms

Doing the laundry is no fun for anyone, but it can be a much more pleasant chore if there is ample space in which to do it. Adding on a laundry room to your home can be a great way to make cleaning clothes more convenient. When it doubles as a mudroom, it provides a place for family members to keep shoes, coats, hats, and umbrellas as well as kids’ backpacks.
