If you’re interested in adding more space to your current home but are concerned that you’ll have to do a lot of work to get it, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Read on to see how to add functionality and increase aesthetics of your home with just a one-room home addition. What’s important is how you improve in that one room.
In this post, the team at Marrokal Design and Remodeling shares great ideas for room addition remodeling.
A Garden Room
Garden rooms are very easy to do. You have the option of constructing a new space within the garden, or you can simply attach the garden to a room. The latter involves removing a portion of a wall and replacing it with a wide hallway to connect the room with the garden.
Some homeowners decide to turn their mudroom into a garden room. Whether you’re building a one-room home addition or converting a space like a mudroom, there are few critical things to have in a garden room. These include a sink, storage space, natural lighting (plants love daylight), and ample countertop space. To maximize natural light you can have large windows and all-glass doors.
Keep in mind that garden rooms are essentially second living rooms that have more greenery. Decorate them as you would your main living area.
Granny flat additions are another excellent “one room” addition. These are basically small houses the size of one room that are typically built to accommodate elderly loved ones who you want to keep an eye on but still let them have their independence.
Granny flats are versatile home additions that do more than house elderly parents. You can transform the space into a private area for teenagers, young married couples, or even as a separate studio that you can rent out.
Granny flats can have separate entrances to provide security and privacy, kitchenettes, and intercom systems that allow communication between the main house and the granny flat. See how it works in this video story.
You can also transform your new room into a pool house – either as a separate area or one that is built out from the rest of the house. For the latter, it’s essentially a transition space from the main house where you can still store your pool essentials.
