8 Ideas for Room Additions to Update Your Home 

Library 

This room could be used for anything from studying to reading books. The space can be set up with a home office or just for quiet relaxation time. 

Expand Your Bedroom 

With larger bedrooms and more storage options, adding on can make your bedroom feel new and improved. 

Playroom for Kids 

An ample, open space will give children some much-needed extra living space to explore and grow in. 

Home Theater 

Consider adding a home theater and create a space for you and your friends to binge-watch your favorite TV series. 

Expand your bathroom 

You can expand your bathroom, adding more sinks, a steam shower, a pantry for storage, and even a private toilet. Another option is to go with a spa-style tub with jets. 

Sunroom 

Sunrooms are an excellent way to add living space to your home. You can use the room for seating or dining, or even a plant or vegetable garden. 

Wardrobe Closet 

A wardrobe closet can be a great addition to any room. It will provide you with more storage space and provide your home with an extra clean look. 

In-law apartment 

In-law apartments are typically finished off with kitchenettes and full bathrooms so that they can double as guest rooms or additional bedrooms for your children.
