Since building a new home is both expensive and time-consuming, most people choose to purchase homes that are already built. However, since these homes were built with another’s lifestyle in mind, many find it necessary to make several additions. Here are a few of the top reasons why homeowners pursue home additions:
- You Have A New Addition to the Family: Having a child can make a decent-sized home suddenly seem very small. Also, many kids don’t like the prospect of sharing a room with a new sibling. When there’s an addition to the family, it only makes sense to make an addition to the house, too. Homeowners that see a steady flow of visiting friends and relatives can also benefit from adding a guest bedroom.
- You Need Work or Storage Space: As most people settle into permanent living arrangements, they feel more inclined to explore new hobbies. Whether it’s car restoration, sculpting, or model trains, a new hobby may not fit well into an existing home. Many homeowners choose to add a garage to their homes, allowing them to explore their passions and have a little room left over to store a vehicle or household goods.
- You Want a Place to Relax: As homeowners enjoy success in their careers, they have more money to spend on home improvement. That’s why three- and four-season rooms are popular home additions. Half porch and half living room, a three- or four-season room can be a wonderful place for a homeowner to grow a miniature indoor garden, relax, and enjoy nature’s charms.

Purchasing a new home addition allows you to invest in your family and care for aging parents while still maintaining the privacy of your own home. Read on to learn about some of the benefits of adding in-law living quarters to your home:
Share Time Decorating: A room addition shouldn’t be limited to adding four walls and wiring: A new room allows you to change the flow of your entire home. Use the opportunity to work together to create a space that is unique for your parents, but still flows with the rest of the house. For example, you may want to use similar colors and decorating motifs to reinforce design choices used in your living room or kitchen. Working with a professional contractor significantly expands your options for designing aesthetically impressive living quarters.
Encourage Togetherness: Inviting your in-laws into your home is an act of love and generosity, allowing you to build stronger relationships with your loved one’s family. With your in-laws nearby, you can more easily celebrate holidays and special occasions without having to worry about your loved ones traveling far to see you. Plus, having in-laws quarters also allows children to interact with their grandparents and build strong bonds with them.
Maintain Privacy: In-law living quarters also allow you and your family to continue their day-to-day unfettered during a visit. Strategically place your in-law quarters to maximize distance from the master bedroom to give you the privacy you need. Additionally, parents won’t feel imposing and will have a modicum of privacy for themselves if they have a designated place to stay.
