When it comes to increasing the square footage of your home, there is no shortage of options. According to HomeAdvisor, the ROI on adding a second story is 65%, clearly adding to the value and curb appeal of your home. While adding a second story is one of the common home additions design build teams complete, there are many other ways to add square footage to your home, especially when it comes to improving your day-to-day life. Here are a few ideas we’d love to collaborate on.

1. Add a Room Over Your Garage

If you’re looking for a great way to increase your home’s square footage without turning your main living space into a construction zone, home additions over the garage may be your perfect option. Once the home additions are done, this space is highly versatile. Use it as a home office, a dedicated kids’ playroom, an in-law suite, or a guest bedroom.

2. Convert Your Porch Into a Sunroom

A porch is a great feature on any property, but it is not considered livable square footage. If you want to increase your home’s square footage, consider converting your porch into a sunroom with heating and cooling, a durable roof, and windows with the help of our sunroom addition experts. Your sunroom will feel like a second living room when you add furniture, lighting, a coffee table, and more!

3. Create a Dedicated Laundry Room

Is your washer and dryer in the basement or first level of your home? If so, you know firsthand how much more convenient it would be to have your laundry room on your main level or second floor where all your bedrooms and closets are. If your laundry area is unfinished, too small, or barely functional, creating a dedicated laundry room with home additions can be the perfect solution to increase your home’s square footage.
