Many couples buy ‘starter homes’ without considering how challenging they become to live in when children are born. They found the asking price to be right and the neighborhood perfect for young couples. If this description sounds like you, and you now have kids to consider, it’s time for a home addition. It’s the most cost-effective way to ensure that everyone has the space that they deserve inside the residence.
It’s Not Always Ideal to Buy a Bigger Home
Although some people may advise you to sell your home to buy a larger residence, it isn’t necessarily the best idea to entertain. After all, you have time and money already invested in the home you own. It could take months or even years to sell your house. Would you be willing and able to pay two mortgages in the meantime?
If you love your home and want to stay put, you can with Home Additions in Miami. Adding onto the property you own allows you to accommodate your growing family without sacrificing the comfort and security you’ve built in the house that you enjoy. You won’t need to find the perfect neighborhood again because you’ll stay in the location that you know so well.
How Much Space is Enough Space for Your Family
A kids room addition needs to be roomy enough to allow space for inspired play. If children have a place to sleep and nothing more, it stifles their creativity. They need to be able to spread out, run, jump, and play with the greatest of ease.
With a contractor’s assistance, you may want to have additional rooms created inside the home. For example, a home office allows you to work from home easier while tending to the children. Then, if you do decide to have more children, the room can be converted to a playroom if needed.
Always overestimate the amount of space that you need. If you don’t, you may need the contractor to return to add even more rooms to the home. When in doubt, ask the professional for advice.
The Benefits of Extending the Home
A children’s home addition has its benefits. There are many options available for you to choose from. Once the contractor has accounted for the lot size and the number of square feet that you desire, you’ll be able to determine the placement of the rooms.
Bigfoot Construction’s guidance through Home Additions in Miami help you decide how much of your extra land you’ll devote to the addition. You may not have a lot of room for a backyard or playground. A swimming pool may be out of the question.
Consider the age of the children and how their needs will eventually change. It may be better to build one big room for two children to share as opposed to two small rooms on other ends of the home. That way, you still have space to change things up as the kids get older.
The kids room addition plays a contributing factor to the other rooms in the home. You may find that later on, you’d like to have a larger kitchen or entertainment room. Being deliberate in your planning of the new additions ensures that you’ll always have a home that you love and appreciate available for you and your family to live in long-term.
