QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF BEFORE STARTING A HOME ADDITION PROJECT

Self-reflection before starting a home addition project will help align with your needs and avoid costly surprises. By considering your goals, budget, and lifestyle, you can make informed decisions about the size, purpose, and design of your addition.

Here are a few questions you can ask yourself before starting:

  • If you could build your home from scratch, what would it look like?
  • Will the addition add value to your space?
  • What are the main reasons you need more space?
  • How will the addition be used most often?
  • What is a realistic budget for the entire project?
  • How long are you comfortable living with construction disruptions?
  • How will you blend your existing style with the addition?

ADDITION VS. HOME RENOVATION: HOW DO YOU CHOOSE?

The purpose of an addition is to increase square footage, usually to address a growing family or a desire for dedicated spaces like a home gym or an office. Renovations, on the other hand, optimize your current layout by improving functionality, flow, and design.

Sometimes, when you think you need an addition, a well-planned renovation is more appropriate for your goals. It’s a misconception that adding square footage is the only way to create more usable space in your home.

To make an informed decision, consider the following factors:

  • Space requirements: If you need more square footage to create a new room or dedicated space, an addition is the better option. A renovation optimizes existing space.
  • Lifestyle changes: If your family dynamics have shifted (e.g., a new baby, an elderly parent moving in), an addition may be more accommodating.
  • Resale value: Additions can increase your home’s value more than renovations, in most cases, but this depends on specifications and design.
  • Disruption level: Renovations are generally less disruptive than additions, which involve major construction.
  • Architectural style: Additions typically need to conform to your existing style, while renovations offer more flexibility.

IS A BUMP-OUT THE SAME AS A HOME ADDITION?

A bump-out is a variant of a home addition, on a smaller scale. Both aim to increase usable space, but a bump-out focuses on expanding a single room outward, typically by 2 to 15 feet. Imagine nudging a specific wall section a bit further to create more breathing room.

On the other hand, regular home additions can involve entirely new rooms or complex extensions that significantly alter the overall footprint of your house. Think of them as full-fledged expansions, whereas bump-outs are more targeted (and relatively minor) adjustments.

ADD A ROOM TO YOUR HOME TO UNLOCK YOUR PROPERTY’S FULL POTENTIAL

BEST PRACTICES FOR SPACE PLANNING A NEW BEDROOM

Space planning is the thoughtful analysis of a room to make it functional and efficient for the people who will use it. It considers, among other things, who will use the space and what activities will take place there.

It also involves arranging furniture, traffic flow, and designated zones to ensure smooth movement and avoid bottlenecks. For example, think keeping the prep area close to the stove when planning a kitchen.

Prioritize the following two categories for planning a new bedroom:

Functionality

  • Plan for essential furniture (bed, nightstands, dresser, etc.) and any additional pieces you desire (desk, reading chair, etc.)
  • Factor in closets, built-ins, or dressers for ample storage to avoid clutter.
  • Maximize natural light with windows strategically placed for both function and ambiance.

Layout

  • Work with the dimensions of the addition to implement desired features (walk-in closet, reading nook, etc.).
  • Think about how doors will affect furniture placement and traffic flow.
  • Plan for sufficient outlets near the bed, nightstands, and any designated work or reading areas.

CREATIVE HOME OFFICE IDEAS FOR MAXIMIZING SMALL ADDITIONS

Transforming a compact area into a functional and productive home office requires creative thinking and smart space utilization. A new office might not cure your procrastination problem, but at least you’ll have the ideal launching pad to tackle it.

Here are a few home office ideas to get you thinking:

  • Use vertical space by installing floating shelves or wall-mounted desks.
  • Incorporate multi-functional furniture, such as a fold-down desk or a storage ottoman.
  • Opt for a corner desk or a compact L-shaped setup to maximize floor space.
  • Invest in slim, streamlined office chairs and storage solutions.
  • Incorporate mirrors or light colors to create an illusion of spaciousness.

Elevate Your Home with Our Second-Story Additions

Thinking of adding more space to your home but your backyard is already at its max? By building upwards, you can unlock new possibilities for your home without sacrificing your outdoor space. This could be the perfect solution for growing families or creating a dedicated space for hobbies, work, or relaxation.

Plus, second-story additions can significantly increase the value of your home, making it a worthwhile investment for the future.

Sunroom Additions That Bring the Outdoors In

A sunroom addition is a great way to bring the outdoors in and enjoy nature from the comfort of your home. With large windows and natural light, you can create a peaceful space perfect for reading, relaxing, or spending time with family and friends.

Sunrooms are also a great way to extend your living space without having to deal with unpredictable weather or pesky insects. Enjoy the beauty of the outdoors all year round by adding a sunroom to your home.

SUNROOM IDEAS FOR YOUR ADDITION

Sunrooms are like outdoor living rooms. If you’re struggling to design or implement one, consider how you currently spend time outdoors. Do you enjoy hosting barbecues? Sipping morning coffee while you watch the rain?

Here are a few sunroom ideas that may inspire you:

  • Entertaining: Design a sunroom for entertaining with comfortable seating, a wet bar, and easy access to your outdoor space for indoor-outdoor gatherings.
  • Indoor garden: Optimize your sunroom to store and grow plants with a healthy amount of sunlight and controlled humidity, like a greenhouse you can relax in.
  • Art studio: Sunrooms provide plenty of natural light, making them ideal for an inspiring outdoor art studio or creative workspace.
  • Playroom: Design a sunroom specifically for children with soft, cushioned flooring, rounded corners, and a reading nook with built-in shelving.

Garage Conversion to Transform Your Unused Space

Don’t let your garage go to waste as a cluttered storage space. Instead, consider converting it into a functional and livable space for your home. A garage conversion can add extra living space, whether used as an additional bedroom, office, or entertainment area.

Garage conversions are also a great way to save money and avoid the hassle of building an entirely new addition. With proper insulation and heating, your converted garage can be just as comfortable as any other room in your home.

Kitchen Extensions for Enhanced Functionality and Value

Expanding your kitchen can transform it from a cramped and busy area into a spacious, multifunctional home hub. Adding square footage lets you design a more functional layout that meets your cooking and entertaining needs. A kitchen extension can also increase the value of your home, making it a smart investment for both your current and future living situation.

Basement Finishing for Extra Living Space

Renovating an unfinished basement into a comfortable and usable living space is a smart way to increase your home’s square footage without needing an external extension. Finishing your basement can provide a versatile area that can serve as an additional bedroom, a home theatre, a gym, or even a home office.

Once completed, your basement can function as a perfect space for relaxation and entertainment.

Designing Home Additions for In-Laws

Designing home additions for in-laws provides a comfortable and private living space adjacent to or within a home, catering specifically to the needs of family members or guests. It offers independence and convenience while maintaining proximity to the main household.

At Triforce Construction, we build in-law suites that include bedrooms, bathrooms, and a kitchen and living area. We design these suites as welcoming retreats, allowing loved ones to have their own space while remaining closely connected to the family.

Are you gearing up to invite additional family or guests into your home? Allow us to help make space for everyone to enjoy.

Premium Flooring Options for Every Room Addition

We offer a variety of premium flooring options for every room addition project. Our team of experts will work with you to understand your style and preferences and guide you toward the perfect flooring options for your room addition. We only use high-quality, durable materials that are meant to withstand everyday wear and tear, ensuring your investment is long-lasting.

TYPES OF KITCHEN FLOORING

Kitchen flooring needs to be durable, water-resistant, and easy to clean. Here are some common types of flooring you can opt for:

  • Hardwood (solid or engineered): Hardwood offers warmth and elegance but requires regular maintenance and is more susceptible to water damage.
  • Laminate: An affordable and durable option that mimics the look of hardwood or tile and comes in a variety of styles.
  • Vinyl: Highly durable, water-resistant, and comfortable underfoot.
  • Tile (ceramic, porcelain, natural stone): Tiles are also highly water-resistant, durable, and available in a wide range of styles and colors.

BATHROOM TILES: WHAT TO CONSIDER

When choosing bathroom tiles, consider balancing style and function. For example, large-format tiles for walls minimize grout lines, which can be difficult to clean. Think about texture—matte finishes offer grip but can show water spots, while glossy tiles are easier to maintain but feel slippery.

Here are some key considerations to help you choose:

  • Moisture resistance: Bathrooms are prone to moisture and humidity, so select tiles that are both water-resistant and slip-resistant.
  • Durability: Opt for tiles that can withstand heavy foot traffic and daily use, such as porcelain or ceramic tiles.
  • Style and design: Tiles come in a wide range of colors, patterns, and textures. Choose one that creates your desired atmosphere and complements other design elements.
  • Maintenance: Some tiles require more maintenance than others (more grout lines). Consider the ease of cleaning and upkeep when making your selection.

Tailored Home Addition Designs to Enhance Your Living Space

Our approach to custom home addition designs centers around enhancing your living experience by tailoring the design to fit your unique needs. During the design process, we consider your lifestyle, daily routines, and personal preferences to create a space that truly reflects who you are. We also ensure that the design seamlessly integrates with your existing home, creating a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing look.

3D Interior Design Renderings for Perfect Visualizations

To help you visualize your dream room addition, we offer 3D interior design renderings. This allows you to see your space in a realistic and detailed manner, making it easier to make decisions and make any necessary changes before construction begins.

You can also use these renderings to help you choose color schemes, furniture placement, and other design elements. This way, you can clearly understand what your room addition will look like before any construction takes place.

Expert Project Management and Construction Services

Our team of professionals includes experienced project managers and construction workers who will handle every aspect of your room addition project. From obtaining necessary permits to completing the final touches, they’ll ensure your project is completed on time, within budget, and according to your specifications.

We also offer regular updates and communication throughout the construction process to keep you informed every step of the way. This way, you can have peace of mind knowing that your room addition is in capable hands.

Affordable Home Additions Tailored to Your Budget

Adding a new room to your home is affordable with Triforce Construction. We achieve this through strategic sourcing of materials, leveraging long-standing relationships with suppliers to obtain high-quality materials at lower costs.

Additionally, our expert team employs efficient construction methods to minimize waste and reduce labor costs. By tailoring your project to fit your budget, we provide detailed, upfront cost estimates to avoid unexpected expenses, allowing you to make informed decisions about your home addition project.

What Goes Into Your Home Addition Cost Estimate?

To provide an accurate cost estimate for your room addition, our team will take into account various factors, including:

  • Size and scope of the project
  • Type of room being added (e.g., bedroom, bathroom, kitchen)
  • Materials and finishes desired
  • Labor costs
  • Permit fees and other necessary expenses
  • Timeline for completion

Once we have all the necessary information, our team will provide a detailed cost breakdown to help you clearly understand where your budget is being allocated. This way, you can make adjustments and prioritize certain aspects of your project according to your preferences and budget.

LET OUR HOME ADDITION DESIGNERS TAKE CARE OF EVERYTHING

There are many things to consider when embarking on a construction project that sees you expanding your home’s footprint, including:

  • Permitting
  • Budget
  • Timeline
  • Zoning and building codes
  • Foundation and structural integrity
  • Windows and lighting
  • Heating and cooling
  • Construction materials and finishes
  • …and much more!

Let our experts guide you through the process of creating a house addition that improves the utility and appeal of your home, allows you to use your square footage the way you want, and meets all zoning, permitting, and building safety requirements. We take care of all the planning, permitting, and material sourcing so that all you have to do is sit back and relax as we work to implement construction solutions that align with your preferences.

Expand, Don’t Move

Does your growing family need space? Do you work from home and lack a proper office? If you’ve been thinking about moving, we recommend you consider expanding your home instead. Room additions allow you to add a custom space built for you, by you, without having to entirely uproot yourself.

Not only this, but if you ever do choose to move, additions—especially those that expand upon and improve a bathroom or kitchen, have a very high return on investment so you will be making your money back.

When you buy a home you love, you’re not always guaranteed to continue needing a home that size. Don’t leave a space you’ve settled in when you can just add to it and make it even better.

The Process

If you’re feeling stifled within your own home, it’s time for a change. Maybe you don’t have enough space in a particular room, or you’re missing a room entirely. No matter what the case is, one call to Triforce Construction and we can star the design build process.

We’ll decide the optimal location to expand in, outwards or upwards. Your experienced home renovations contractor will provide you with a risk free cost estimate and a rough plan of what the build will be like and how long it will take.

When everything is in order, we can start the renovation. In the case of a second story home addition, don’t be concerned about any damage being done to the home. We demolish carefully with all structural considerations in mind and protect the rest of your home as we build up.

Out, up and away! Call Triforce Construction to get started on your home additions today!
