Home additions, remodels and renovations come in all shapes and sizes, from a single bathroom redesign to a complete gut and level. For the Chicago homemaker looking for something in between, home additions can be a great way build on what you’ve already got. Here are some of the most common home additions we provide, along with their respective advantages:
“Bump Out” Home Addition
Bump outs are a perfect example of taking the middle road. Rather than creating an entirely new room in your home, bump outs can give you that extra bit of space that you have always wanted. Whether you are trying to fit extra counter space in your kitchen, make room for that perfect segment couch in your living room, or make a breakfast nook, a bump out can maintain the integrity and feel of your living space while making it much more useful. Although they tend to cost more per square foot than full-on additions, the smaller size almost always makes it the cheaper option in the long run.
