Here are some room addition ideas to get your creative juices flowing. All of a sudden a home that appeared adequately sized for 2 or 3 people may feel tight when more family members arrive. Many young families are finding as parents age they may have the need to move in Mom or Dad to keep them close to take care of them, or to have someone to help raise the children. Adding on a new bedroom and bathroom is a great way to do this, giving the new addition plenty of privacy.
If your home already has enough bedrooms, a family room addition is sometimes a helpful addition to increase the quantity of square footage in a home and increase the functionality.
You could be one of those people who can do all of the work around your house alone. If you can get a room addition done with your own hands, I envy you. The majority nevertheless, will need the aid of a professional to get this done in a correct and prompt way. If you’re making plans to build the addition yourself, then you’ll need to take a little bit of time to file all the correct paperwork in your city, which will have their own set of rules and regulations concerning building on to your home.
Where an addition is placed on a place will change dependent on the layout of the home and tangible site conditions. If there’s space on the site that allows for a family room addition on the key level of a home, I often search for a location close to the kitchen. If there is not any space on the site for a ground level addition, we’ll either look at a location like in a half finished cellar, or consider adding onto a second story. One latest trend we are finding is locating a family space opposite to bedrooms, particularly if the space is found diagonally opposite to kid’s bedrooms. This family room space regularly becomes the kid’s ‘hang out space’. Regularly a family room plays many roles, so it is very important to design the space to make allowance for the functions you want. Consider planning the sitting room to accommodate family movie nights by incorporating room darkening black-out shades and the mandatory electronic gear and speakers. If you regularly need a place for additional guests to sleep, a family room may also be converted simply to a sleeping area if you incorporate the right kind of furniture. A queen size sleeper settee can nicely sleep 2 folks. Frequently incorporating a TV that’s opposite to the fire, or organizing a seating group that’s at the right angles where one side faces a TV and the opposite side faces a fireside can answer that problem.
When possible we like to grow the living room addition to the outside by adding French doors or sliding doors. A deck or terrace outside a family room can help to make a smaller room feel bigger. A smartly designed family room can serve many purposes if well worked out in the planning stages. This sometimes means thinking ahead and planning the kind of furniture, the size and situation of the TV, and the positioning of not only walls, but also the content of the room.
