Home additions will provide you with more space, and if done correctly, they can increase the value of your house. Certain home additions, however, make more sense, and the following guide will highlight the ones that are actually worth it:

Zero-Threshold Showers

If you are building your forever home, zero-threshold showers are a must because barrier-free showers are innovative and offer many benefits, especially for aging or injured homeowners. Eliminating barriers will ensure a sleek look, and you won’t have to deal with the edge of a traditional shower floor basin. This design style is not only accessible, but it is also practical and stylish. Learn more about bathroom renovations.

Cool Roofing

If you want to save on your energy bills, investing in a cool roof is a must. This will reflect more sunlight and absorb less heat than a traditional roof, improving indoor comfort and decreasing the energy used to cool the home.

Kitchen Countertops

Visually, countertops make a big statement, and physically, they must withstand food preparation, spills, and constant cleaning. Kitchen countertops need to be selected carefully because they play a significant role in a kitchen’s style and function; quartz is highly recommended. This beautiful material will help make your kitchen more functional and easier to maintain. This small kitchen renovation can make a big difference.

New Garage Doors

This will help improve curb appeal, and believe it or not, a garage door replacement has one of the highest returns on investment in terms of resale value.

Radiant Heat Flooring

This is installed below the floor and will warm rooms from the bottom up to provide evenly distributed heat that is comforting and cozy. Your feet will enjoy this addition, and while it’s an extensive project, the benefits are well worth it—especially on cold winter mornings.

Automatic Bathroom Vent Fans

Look for a model with a humidity sensor that activates the fan automatically, which is ideal for those who forget to turn it on before bathing. You won’t waste energy if you fail to turn it off. New ventilation will also prevent mould and mildew, and there is little manual effort after installation.

Tankless Water Heater

This provides on-demand hot water and only expends energy to heat water when needed. They are small and last a very long time. Your hot water supply will not be limited to how much water the tank can hold.

New Decks and Patios

To enjoy your outdoor space, you need to have a comfortable space, and a new deck will allow you to make the most out of this area. This will add considerable value to your property, and you can dine, relax, or entertain outdoors. 

Larger Kitchen

Expanding this space and breaking down walls will allow you to create your dream kitchen. This is the heart of the home and having more space will make it more enjoyable for you and your family. A larger space means more cabinetry, storage space and seating. This kind of home addition will add value to your home. 

Solar Energy

Solar power is a more feasible option for homeowners thanks to decreasing materials costs, tax credits, and incentives. Supplementing your home with solar power will reduce your energy bills and carbon footprint.
