Have you outgrown your home? Are you longing for extra space, like an extra bedroom?

When most homeowners find themselves in this situation, they consider moving to a larger home. However, bedroom additions are a great alternative option. You can stay in your home and get the extra space you need.

 

In this guide, we're going to break down everything you need to know about adding on a bedroom and the benefits of a bedroom addition. Let's get started.

Types of Bedroom Additions

Before you start the renovation process, you need to decide which type of bedroom addition is right for your home. The types of home additions are:

  • Conventional house addition
  • Bump-out
  • Garage conversions
  • Sunroom additions

A conventional house addition is the most extensive project. It is usually a multi-room addition that is added to the side of the house. When it's built well by an experienced general contractor, it should blend naturally into the original structure, and you shouldn't be able to tell that it was an addition.

Conventional house additions are used for large bedrooms, family rooms, dining rooms, and bathrooms. While they are the most expensive option on this list, they also have the biggest return on investment. However, building a conventional house additions takes the most time.

A bump-out, also known as a single room addition, is a smaller version of a convention house addition. You should go with this option when you just want a single bedroom added to your home, or you want to add more square footage to an existing bedroom.

A bump-out can still make a big difference to your home's footprint, but it is a less time-consuming and expensive project.

Some homeowners convert their garages into an additional bedroom or stand-alone apartment. Since garages already have a strong foundation and walls, they are a much easier addition.

A general contractor would simply add floors, a solid wall to replace the garage door, and a ceiling. Plumbing and HVAC would also need to be added for the garage to become a functional living space.

Lastly, many homeowners dream of adding a sunroom to their house. While this isn't technically a bedroom addition, you can put a daybed in a sunroom and use it as a place for guests to sleep when needed. Like the other types of bedroom additions, a sunroom is constructed to naturally blend into the side of the house.

Benefits of a Bedroom Addition

If you are feeling overwhelmed by the intensive bedroom addition process, let us ease your worries by explaining the key benefits of a bedroom addition.

First, bedroom additions are a great way to add space to your home without having to move. Moving is a headache, and if you love your house and your neighborhood, you can transform your current house into your dream home instead of searching for a new one.

Next, bedroom additions are great for growing families. Many couples purchase a home before they have kids, and once the kids come, they realize they need more bedrooms. Plus, it's nice to have a guest room for when friends and family visit.

Bedroom additions also give you a chance to spread out and get creative with bedroom interior design. If you currently don't have enough bedrooms, you may have combined a bedroom and office into one space, or maybe you have multiple children sharing the same bedroom.

When you have enough bedrooms, you can decorate them fully into the perfect space. No longer does the spare room have to be a catch-all storage space, office space, playroom, and bedroom.

Lastly, bedroom additions add value to your home. If you decide to sell your house one day, you will get the money spent on the addition back, plus some. The bedroom addition value added is enough to move forward with the renovation.

How to Start a Bedroom Addition

For the best outcome, you need to layout a detailed plan for your bedroom addition. For most homeowners, this is the fun part. You get to meet with a designer and consult with them about your needs and desires, and they will get to work.

During your first consultant, it's important to discuss:

  • Your needs
  • Your budget
  • Types of bedroom addition
  • Bedroom interior design ideas
  • Building permits

Once the design is finalized, the construction process begins. This phase gets messy and interferes with your daily life, so it's important to set your sights on the outcome to not become overwhelmed.

We can't say enough how important it is to hire a design and construction team that you trust fully. The team will be in your home every day, and your living space is going to become a construction site. You need to make sure you are fully confident in your team's skills and comfortable with them.

Some families choose to move out during this phase to minimize stress. However, it may not be necessary if the addition doesn't invade your living space too much.
