Home additions not only improve your way of living but also add property value. However, not all of them provide the same results. As your premier custom home builder, Sadler Building Corporation recommends investing in additions that you’ll benefit in the long term and not for the sake of just increasing your home’s value.
If your home has only one bathroom, adding another one can recoup 80% to 130% of the overall cost, depending on the type of addition and the accessories you will use. You can use your extra rooms or underutilized areas like the space under the stairs. A half-bath will require at least 18 square feet, while a full-bath shower, which includes a stand-up shower, will need a minimum of 30 square feet.
2. Kitchen Remodeling
People always look for kitchens when buying a house, which is why remodeling it can provide you with a high return on investment. You can start by replacing your cabinets and repainting the walls. Furthermore, you should consider upgrading your appliances with energy-efficient models. If your existing kitchen is too cramped, you may need to expand it. Don’t go overboard, however, as a deluxe kitchen may only do more harm than good to your home’s value.
3. Deck Addition
Outdoor living spaces have become a desirable feature in homes, making deck construction a great investment. According to HGTV, it can recoup 65% to 90% of its cost.
Decks are versatile because you can turn them into a dining area if you love eating alfresco or your outdoor haven where you can enjoy the weather and have some deep contemplation. They are also quicker to build compared to other home additions.
