Spring is officially here, and soon the weather will be warming up enough for homeowners to take a moment to sit outside and soak up the sun. Home additions are a great way to add to your home’s value while giving you more chances to enjoy the outdoors.
Here are some of the best home additions you can use to boost your home’s aesthetic, add comfort, and give you more space to make the most of spring and summer.
April showers bring May flowers, but it can be hard to enjoy the rain from your doorway. Porches are a home addition that isn’t as talked about as decks and patios, but they do offer many benefits to your home including added security, beauty, and property value.
Approximately 26% of homeowners renovated their recently-purchased home in 2018, and porch additions are a great way to really give your home the curb appeal it may have been missing.
Decks are a common favorite when it comes to home additions, and with good reason. Decks give you plenty of space to entertain or relax in the backyard. Because they’re elevated, they also give you a great view, which is especially nice in the spring and summertime.
If you’re unsure whether a deck or patio is the right home addition for you, decks typically work best when your backyard has an uneven terrain. Decks are also typically more comfortable in the heat because wood absorbs less heat than stone.
Patios are a paved area that can be located anywhere in your backyard. Like a deck, some patios come right off the house, but others may be situated further into the yard. Because patios are lower to the ground, they offer privacy. They’re also easy to maintain.
When spring turns into summer, the warmer weather will come with some downsides including bugs, sweat, and humidity. Sunrooms are a great way to make the most of the warmer weather without having to deal with mosquitoes. What’s more, because the sunroom is attached to your home, you can relax in the air conditioning while you soak up that much-needed vitamin D.
