Homeowners are always looking for ways to improve their homes. They can choose from bathroom remodels, kitchen upgrades, and even basement additions. But the one area of most homes that is often overlooked is second story additions.
Homeowners seem to forget that their second story needs attention just like the rest of the home does. And for homeowners with only one-story homes, second story additions may be just what they need to expand their square footage and add equity to their home.
The pandemic has allowed people to stay at home more frequently. There may also be a need for social distancing when illness becomes a factor at home. But even outside of our current health concerns, renovating can be a great choice. Roughly 34% of homeowners decided to renovate their home areas because they had the time and the need. Here are some reasons why second story additions and renovation projects make perfect sense.
They Address the Need for Extra Space
Make the second story of your home a place where people want to dwell. In your current layout, there may not be enough space for everyone to live comfortably. And when a person becomes ill, everyone else may need to clear that area of the home and find another space in which to sleep and play. By renovating the space, you’ll address those needs and create your forever home.
They Add Functionality
Second story additions can really add to your home’s functionality. Not only will you have more space to spread out, but you can add rooms that will improve your quality of life. Upstairs bedrooms, bathrooms, living spaces, and even kitchen facilities can add to your comfort and well-being, allowing your family to access the areas they need most without crowding or frustration.
They Add Equity to Your Home
Extra space means more value for your home. When the time comes to sell your home, you’ll find the value of your home has only increased with the additional square footage. Having additional living space and more rooms will improve your home’s value to buyers and will provide a positive return on investment.
Second story additions are a great way to enhance the living situation in your home. You’ll have the added benefit of more space when you need it and the added equity to your home.
