Q: What is a bump-out addition?
Bump-outs are similar to additions but offer a more affordable way to add living space to your Seattle home. Smaller than a full addition, they're often used to add additional square footage to an existing room, such as the bathroom, kitchen, family room, or master bedroom. There are no standard rules about what makes a bump-out, but common features include minimal exterior changes, cantilevers, lean-to roofs, and no additional HVAC services.
Q: Is it worth building a home addition?
If you're looking to increase your home's value and are prepared to invest the time and money it requires, you should definitely opt for a home addition. According to the National Association of Realtors, each 1,000 square feet added to a home increases its sales price by at least 30%.
Because adding a half or full bath can increase a home's overall value and sales appeal, a home addition is an investment well worth considering. Most importantly, a room addition is the best way to create a living space that's uniquely your own, adding to your personal and emotional well-being.
Q: What kind of addition adds the most value to my home?
Experts agree the additions that add the most value to a home include kitchen, bathroom, and master suite improvements. Adding a mid-range master suite gives you a roughly 57% value on return. Some homeowners prefer to add a shed roof dormer to create an attic master suite, an addition that can return as much as 80% of its value.
A kitchen addition returns anywhere from 60% to 80% value, as do bathroom additions. Best of all, because these two rooms are highly functional and extremely practical, you not only get a nice return on your investment but enjoy a tremendous amount of use-value from them as well.
