Benefits of a Room Addition for Your Growing Family

Things have changed since you purchased your home. Families grow and what seemed like a mansion might be feeling like a shack right about now. That doesn’t mean you have to go house-hunting. If you have new members of the family, growing children, or kids moving out, then a room addition can add space and functionality without having to say goodbye to the memories.

Working with a reputable home remodeling company can also improve the style and value of your home. The experienced home remodeling contractors at Construction Hero can build rooms that integrate seamlessly with the existing structure.

Let’s explore some room additions that may be the perfect solution for your growing family. We’ve split our suggestions into three scenarios. Let’s get started!

Room Additions for New Family Members

If you are making room for a baby, and toddler-to-be, then you’re probably considering safety, comfort, and space for the new member of the family.

In the most near-term, a nursery room is a must-have for parents that want to provide a peaceful and comfortable environment for their baby to sleep and play.

For families with young children as well, a playroom is excellent addition to distract rowdy toddlers from the vulnerable baby. Plus, the new-born will surely appreciate the playroom in years to come!

If your children prefer the outdoors, then a mudroom might be better than a playroom. Mudrooms are smaller and serve as dedicated space for removing muddy shoes, jackets, and other dirty gear before entering the home.

Room Additions for Growing Children

A growing family doesn’t necessarily mean a larger headcount. Families grow larger, but they also grow older. As you and your kids grow older, so do needs and preferences. When choosing a room addition, you want to make sure it’ll be useful for years to come.

Whether you have a toddler sleeping in the parents room or kids sharing a bedroom, a bedroom addition is a great way to encourage independence – and provide privacy. The extra bedroom can even accommodate guests for when you have visitors or when the kids move out.

For families with older kids, a game room or home theater can be a great room addition to host friends, play video games, and watch movies. If your kids are more interested in sports and fitness, you can consider a home gym.

Room Additions for When Kids Move Out

As your kids move out to college and the adult life, you’ll be wondering what to do with all the extra space. There’s a lot you can do!

With the kids out of the house, you might have more time to pursue your hobbies or interests. A hobby room or workshop is a dedicated room to play with creative projects and crafts.

If you’d rather focus on work, a home office can provide the ergonomics and isolation to be optimally productive.
