4 Ways to Increase Space in Your Home

After a point, it doesn’t matter what clever storage solutions and space-saving furniture you have — you simply need more room. Fortunately, you don’t have to move into a bigger house to get more space. All you need to do is add a new room. Talk to your local contractors to explore your options for room additions in Jacksonville, FL. The following are four options for increasing space:

Conventional House Additions: When you need a lot more space, conventional house additions make the most sense. These multi-room structures are built onto the side of the main structure, essentially blending into the house itself.

Room Additions (Bump Outs): While a house addition adds multiple rooms, a room addition or bump out adds just one room — most often a bedroom or bathroom. Sometimes, these additions only expand the size of an existing room.

Sunrooms: By code, sunrooms are not meant to be permanent living structures like bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms. However, they are a great way to supplement your living area and function well as spaces for entertaining, dining, and relaxing.

Garage Conversions: Transforming your garage into a new living space is surprisingly easy since most of the groundwork is already in place. However, it may be harder to sell your home later without a garage, so consider all your room addition options before converting your garage.
