In renovating their property, a lot of homeowners want one thing: more space. Who wouldn’t want a home where you can move or lounge around comfortably? Adding a new room or revamping existing ones in your Wellington home can improve the home’s spaciousness, as SF Gate reporter Larry Simmons points out:
“If your home has been feeling a bit cramped lately, adding a room is a good way to both increase the livable space and the home’s value. Whether you’re adding a sunroom to enjoy warm weather living, or adding a bedroom for a new member of the family, building a room is a large-scale project–regardless of the room size. It doesn’t have to be a complicated one, however. Proceeding with the addition a step at a time allows you to approach the project in small increments.”
The roomier, the better! In remodeling your home, contact house builders for Wellington for excellent, seasoned advice on how to expand your home’s spaces, and thus get better satisfaction and value from your property. Here are some ways to do this:
Who wouldn’t want a Wooden Deck?
Florida’s nice, sunny climate is too precious to waste indoors, which is why decks are sought-after in the region. In fact, the 2014 Cost vs. Value Report for South Atlantic areas shows that you can recoup up to 89% of the costs of adding a wooden deck from the increase in home value that you get out of it. The outdoor living space can have comfortable recliners or even al fresco dining furniture perfect for warm weathers.
Build a Bedroom in the Attic.
For big or growing families, having enough private spaces can be a challenge. One great way to add functional space is to transform the attic from a storage area to a cozy bedroom. For a more clever use of space, you can even add secret passageways or hidden rooms within the attic.
Brighten up the Basement!
Basement remodels are another great way to add more living space. Basements can be converted from chilly or muggy storage areas to a nice, cozy suite, perfect as a recreational room, a spare bedroom, a gym, or anything that suits your fancy. Just take your pick!
In any remodel or build-out, consult licensed Wellington home builders. Contractors like Palm Beach County Contractor Corp. can assess your existing spaces and recommend on their suitability for your intended use, based on local building or zoning codes, and other construction concerns.
