So, you’ve decided to have a room addition built for your home. How do you ensure that your new room serves the needs of your family for years to come? NJW, your Columbus, Ohio contractor, understands your need for a flexible space that will offer functionality and comfort for your family’s changing lifestyle.

Planning for the lifespan

A room addition may serve several purposes during its lifespan. An addition located steps from your kitchen that now serves as a safe playroom for children while meals are prepared may later become an elegant, formal dining room. A current home office addition may be the perfect space for a hobby room or library in retirement years.

What’s the right size?

It is crucial that you choose a location and size for your addition that suits both your current needs and possible future uses. A family room addition will require different access from your current home than a new master bedroom suite might. First floor masters are particularly popular choices for homeowners. They immediately offer more living space and allow owners to “age-in-place,” enjoying safer, more accessible living in later years.

Larger spaces mean more design

Larger family room additions can offer a flexible space for a variety of changing family interests. These spaces may serve as an entertainment area, playroom, hobby room and home office all rolled into one. Utilize your family’s interests to inform and guide the design of your space. What’s inside the walls of your addition is important as well.  Consider your family’s current and future needs for audio, video, data and home automation when adding on to your home.
