5 Home-Addition Ideas for the Family
There are many reasons and benefits to expanding your home. Maybe you’re making space for a new family member, building a safe playing area, or creating a venue for family get-togethers.

Whatever reason you have, expanding your home can add value to your property and significantly improve the quality of living of the home’s dwellers.

That said, you may want to consider these home addition ideas for the family.

1. Extra Bedroom

If you’re growing your family, consider building an extra bedroom to prepare for the new member.

An extra bedroom can be very useful even before the new family member comes along. It can serve as the guest bedroom for relatives or friends who are visiting from afar.

The extra bedroom can also serve as a time-out room if anyone wants to have some precious alone time. You can also use it to supplement your income by renting the extra room to tourists and travelers.

Check out this 12-step guide for renting out a room in your house.

2. Children’s Playroom

Playing is an essential part of children’s lives.

It’s how they learn many important life skills, including problem-solving, getting along with other people, empathy and cooperation, creativity, imagination, and hand-eye coordination.

Every parent should encourage their kids to play, not just video games but physical games too. Having a children’s playroom at home means your kids can play safely anytime. They can even invite their friends to hang out with them.

Other parents will also feel more reassured to know that their children are somewhere safe, so they’re more likely to let their kids go over and play.

3. Entertainment Room

An entertainment room is essentially a playroom for all the members of the family, both young and old.

With an entertainment room at home, the family can stay in on Friday nights, prepare some snacks, and enjoy a good movie or play some board games.

The entertainment room can also be a venue for gathering with your friends. You can play pool, cards, or trivia games and catch up with your friends without having to leave your home.

Your teenage kids can also invite their friends to hang out at home, without disturbing the rest of the house.

4. Additional Bathroom

Having more family members at home means more fights over who can use the bathroom first. If you have a big family, you may want to add a second bathroom to your home.

Building a second bathroom can be a huge hassle, especially when it comes to plumbing and sewage work. However, you can cut down on the work by using a toilet with an upflush system. This allows you to connect bathroom fixtures to your sewage system without digging underground.

An additional bathroom will not only make life more peaceful at home, but will also fetch a higher price for your home if you put your property on the market.

5. Family Workroom

For the family who loves DIY, a workroom is just what you need to try all the projects you want without causing a huge mess all over the house.

The family workroom can host all the tools and facilities you need to do all the cutting, shaving, nailing, and painting without restrictions. The kids can also have their corner of the workroom to make their arts and crafts and get as messy as they want to!

Home, Sweet Home

Whether you’re selling your home in the near future or staying until the kids grow up, expanding your home can add a lot of value to your property.

An additional bedroom or bathroom will add thousands of dollars on your property price, but the best value the addition can give is improving the living conditions of the family.

With more amenities in your house, everyone can live more comfortably and have more fun staying at home.
