Room Additions & What to Do With Them

If you do not have the ability to move or spend money on a new, larger home, a room addition project may be the best option for you. A room addition can help your home cater to your lifestyle by providing extra space for activities and pleasures.

Here are some ideas on ways you could use an extra room.


There are many benefits that come with having your own in- home office. Your productivity may increase due to your new quiet working environment. You will be so comfortable working at home; the time will pass by more quickly than at the office. Your personal office can be isolated so you can be completely dedicated to finish your tedious paperwork or computer activities on time. If you primarily work from home, you may also be able to deduct some of the costs from taxes.

Hobby Room

We all know not everyone has time to join book clubs, or take up an art or sewing class, but if you are still creative and have a passionate hobby, turning your new room into a hobby room is the perfect idea. Whether you convert the space into a personal studio or sewing room, a hobby room will be a great place to escape real world responsibilities and do something you love.

Family Room or Home Theater

We all know you have wondered what it would be like to have your own in-home-movie theater with complete surround sound. Imagine watching your favorite film on a huge flat screen television, lounging on extremely comfortable leather couches. Well, this is definitely possible. Consider converting a room addition into your own movie theater.

If you do not see the need to have your own personal viewing room, try transforming the space into a family room. This addition requires less application installation, but can still be the relaxing movie-watching hang out room that you were missing. Be sure to match the décor to the rest of your home, so no one will ever know this was a room add-on.

Kid’s Play Room

Playrooms are not only a great idea if you have children, but act as storage space as well. This room allows your children to store their toys away from the rest of the home, which helps avoid random toys floating around the house for someone to trip on. You do not necessarily have to make this room huge and extravagant, but big enough for your little ones to play in.
