We’ve been in the construction and home renovation business for quite some time, which means we’ve done more than a few bedroom additions over the years. Even though every family is different, they all seem to want one thing: more space! Whether you need additional bedrooms for your children – including surprise babies and adult children who need a different type of bedroom than the one that served them well when they were 6 – or for parents or other loved ones who live with you, you’ll want to know about these 2018 Metrowest MA bedroom addition trends:
Spacious First Floor Additions When you want to maintain your home’s current roofline and have the room to expand, first floor additions are the way to go. Ideal for aging parents or anyone who has mobility issues that may make using the stairs problematic, first floor bedroom additions are built to order to meet your family’s unique needs. Trying to plan your space? It may help to know that a 12 X 12 bedroom is 144 square feet; the average master bedroom suite is slightly larger, at 240 square feet.
Basement Conversions: Bedroom Additions Many of the homes in the Metrowest MA area have already made full use of their lot, which means there’s no room for a first floor addition. Basements are chronically underutilized throughout our region. Working with a skilled Metrowest building contractor, you can have your basement converted into the additional bedroom space you’ve been craving. Basement conversions are also popular for home offices, private gyms, and storage.
Second Story Additions Confounded by lot limitations and not interested in a basement conversion? The other route to an awesome bedroom addition is to go up. Second story additions are one of the most popular home remodels in the Metrowest MA area: they’re a cost effective way to add more space and are perfect for growing families.
