Types of Exterior Additions for Your Home for 2021

Mud Rooms and Entryways and Sun Rooms, Oh My!

If you are similar to the average household, during 2020 you most likely identified multiple additions for your home’s ultimate wish list! As the season changes we’ll be spending more time indoors, and not everyone is using this time to think of ways to enhance their homes – but many are. Get ahead of the game with ideas for exterior home additions, which ironically, can open up a whole new world of indoor lounging options! 

We’ll help you tackle the most important basics first and point you in the right direction for next steps.

Understanding Types of Exterior Room Additions

The sky’s the limit when it comes to designing your very own exterior addition. What is most important, is that you match the type of addition to the function you and your family will find the most beneficial. For example, if you have a smaller yard or outdoor space, you might want to think about using the property available to expand your home’s square footage instead. Another example might be for those with young children, who might find a mud room or segway in between entering the main home from the outdoors a little more practical than other addition types and save a lot more cleanup time.

In addition to the ideas above, many homeowners have chosen to grow their curb appeal by installing these exterior addition types:

  • Bring the beauty and light of the outdoors inside with a sunroom, or convert a room with a view into a study or small home office. 
  • Convert a current small room into a bedroom or area for additional storage by increasing total square footage.
  • Commit to an all-out addition that caters to the functions you and your family need the most: play area, bedroom, additional bathroom, sunroom, study, storage or recreational. 
  • Sky’s the limit: dream up your own creation, such as a home movie theater, private den space, or home bar.  

Regardless of the size of your house, or the property it sits upon, there are multiple options that can be customized to suit your specific needs. You should also project and consider potential procedures that are associated with planning a home addition, which often include items such as knowing your property lines, creating a current floor plan, obtaining blueprint designs and budgeting your total spend.
