Every home has the potential for expansion; the only limits are how you choose to use that space to create. For some, a new home office is ideal while others may consider turning it into a rental unit. Families with children can make use of extra space by creating customized entertainment areas to keep the little ones amused.
No matter what your reasons, if you are considering expanding your home, iRemodel Home Renovations is here to help you explore all of the possibilities. In our post, we will cover a lot of the basic information about home renovations in Toronto so you can get your project start off correctly.
Home Expansion Types
There are a lot of different additions you can make to your home, each one offering a unique benefit. Most fall into one of the following typical categories: conversions, conventional home additions, ADUs, and sunrooms. The layout of your home, your budget, and your needs will determine which one is best for your situation.
Conventional Home Addition
This type of add-on is usually when an owner will add another floor to their home or another room on their existing structure. The new space will blend with the existing home in a seamless manner.
Accessory Dwelling Unit
This is an addition that is either attached or separate from the main home. The main key is that it has an independent entrance. ADU’s also features a fully functioning bathroom and kitchen, some of the larger units may also have a laundry. They are considered independent homes and can also be provided with their own sub-address.
You can also convert existing space in your structure into new, livable spaces. Areas such as your attic, garage, or basement can be converted into a livable space. Most of these areas already have the basics such as plumbing and electricity, they simply need to be finished and altered to meet the needs of the homeowner.
Lanais & Sunrooms
Sunrooms are always a nice addition to a home. You can bring the outdoors inside without the bugs and dirt. The space is enclosed in glass but gives you a clear view of the outdoor space around you. Lanais is another alternative. Instead of an enclosure, you get a mostly covered patio.
Additions & Property Values
Adding on to your home will increase the curb appeal as well as the overall value of your home. It is important that your design is seamless with your existing structure and actually functional. Working with a professional construction team will ensure that your addition is built up to code regardless of the type of addition you choose.
