We understand that when building home addition, the plethora of remodeling options to consider can be a little overwhelming. And so here we are with all the ideas listed in one place for your consideration.

Building A Garage

There are essentially two types of garages you can have as a home addition: a connected garage, which is quite affordable and easy to construct, or a detached construction, which can be an entire separate multi story building. Both of these garage addition ideas have their advantages and downsides, and the eventual decision on which best suits your needs lies with you.


Sunrooms are one of the most popular additions home openers go for, thanks to their affordability as well as the aesthetic upgrade it provides the house with. The idea of being able to soak up in sunshine all year round is hard to pass up, and hence is a great investment towards improving the value of your property as well.

Closet or Wardrobe

The convenience that a walk-in closet provides is unmatched, and if you have space on your property that is just lying unused, you can’t have a better use for it than this. No need to throw all your expensive dresses in a drawer only for them to develop stubborn creases when you take one out to wear.

Additional Bedroom

A lot of people move into a new home when they start a family, but as the family grows bigger, the space becomes inadequate for all the occupants. In such a case, having an extra bedroom or two can make a whole lot of difference in your quality of life, and with the choice of either building out or building up, you have the perfect opportunity for such an addition.


Since modern houses are very straightforward, these are perfect if you want to add a touch of vintage appeal to your property, with the advantage of providing some extra storage space in the attic. You can have one on either side of your home as well.

Outdoor Kitchen

If you are the kind of person who loves partying and throwing bashes, an outdoor kitchen brings a lot of advantages to your lifestyle, not to mention, many scrumptious treats. It is a great way to entertain family and friends without overburdening your residential quarters.

A Deck

This is once again for those who like to mingle and liven it up. Adding a deck just outside your home can be the perfect place to hang out alongside friends and family with a glass of martini in hand as you bask in the sun. This addition is also good from an investment point of view, as a nice deck adds curb value to your property.

Butler’s Pantry/Kitchen Expansion

If you have a small kitchen, which while sufficient for your cooking needs, is a bit too small to house all the linen, cutlery and appliances, this can be a great option for you. It is not as expensive as building a completely new kitchen on your property, but kitchen expansion works great for keeping the mess out of your existing one. You can’t get more practical than that.

A Shed

It is common sense that the bigger your property, the more maintenance it will need, and the more equipment is required to accomplish that. Things like lawnmowers, shears, or even a space for all those DIY projects or vintage car remodeling that you have been craving to work on since forever, they all need space where they can be out of sight, and a shed is the answer.

Second Bathroom

We talked about growing family pains above, and where having extra bedrooms to accommodate additional family members is a priority, you cannot forget about nature calls either, especially if you have got little ones. If the number of bathrooms in your home is insufficient for your current needs, investing in an addition makes a lot of sense. This can also serve as a bathroom for times when guests are visiting.

With all of these home addition ideas at your disposal, there is practically no limit to what you can achieve through a home addition project. Whatever you choose though, make sure you are well prepared for it financially and you have hired an expert home remodeling architect DC.
