The RemodelMe Way
Room additions in Los Angeles have become very popular in recent years due to the housing shortage and increasing rental costs. If you’re planning to add a room of your own, you’ve come to the right place!
At RemodelMe we have extensive experience creating additional rooms for our clients. Whether you’re set on adding an extra bedroom, or you want to create a home office suite, we can handle your project from start to finish.
Popular Room Addition Styles for 2020
Many homeowners who’ve made the investment to add an additional room are now reaping the rewards in the form of passive income provided by long-term lodgers, or through guests using apps such as Airbnb. However, not all room additions have to be revenue generating. Home theaters, playrooms, and guest suites all increase utility whilst still increasing the value of your room.
Room Addition Choices & Options
Every family has different needs, and those needs should be reflected in the choices you make for your additional room. When it comes to planning a project of this nature there are four main choices that top the pile when it comes to homeowners renovating in Los Angeles.
Whether you want to start generating a rental income from your property, or you need an extra bedroom for relatives and out of town guests, a rental suite checks many boxes. As you’ll be creating this room from scratch, you can tweak to match your exact needs with the option to include en-suite bathroom facilities if necessary.
Home offices have become more popular due to increases in flexible working practices. Many find that places such as the kitchen table do not provide an environment conducive to getting high-quality work done. A home office can completely change that dynamic. By being able to shut yourself off from the hustle and bustle of your home, you can maintain the focus and productivity required to achieve what you need to.
Ready to invite friends over for the big game or hoping to spend quality family time together watching the latest releases? A home theater can add memories as well as value to your property. You can also customize furnishings to meet your requirements; such as high quality cinema-style seats or long sofas that are perfect for lazing on.
Sometimes, a living room isn’t the ideal environment for kids and picking up toys can quickly become tiresome. By creating a playroom, you give your children a chance to play, whilst maintaining a space for adults to relax and unwind. It also gives parents the opportunity to move bulky toys out of the way, decluttering your entertainment space in the process.
Ask a RemodelMe Room Addition Contractor: The FAQ's
A very good question! Just like all remodeling projects, the final total will rest heavily on a wide variety of factors such as your choice of materials, fixtures and fittings, and whether you enlist the help of an interior designer. The bigger the space, the higher the cost is likely to be. The same is true of how many specialists you use such as plumbers or electrical engineers. By going without an en-suite bathroom you can save on costs, but lose out in potential rental value.
You can make a start by using your imagination! Once you’ve decided to expand, only you are going to know what you need to gain from adding an extra room. Whilst our design consultants can give you ideas and inspiration, you need to decide what the overall goal of the project is going to be. It can be useful to start the process by listing items you feel are missing from your home as it is, and look at how you could incorporate one or many of those items into a new room.
Each additional room project is unique. There are going to be distinct challenges for each development, making it tough to give any kind of accurate timescales. Small room additions requiring only small amounts of structural work can be completed in under 4 weeks. Larger-scale projects that need the help of a range of highly-skilled professionals can take us several months. However, if you are working on a rental suite, once the job has been completed you can begin immediately recouping the costs of the renovation.
