3 Home Addition Ideas for Empty Nesters, Washburn, Wisconsin

When your children leave home to go to college, get married, or pursue new careers, you might have some new square footage to work with. One of the best ways to take advantage of this extra space is by getting creative with some a home addition. Consider these three options to modernize your home and make it function better for your needs.

Home Additions to Maximize Square Footage

1. Guest Room

If you have a close-knit family, you may wish to use your extra space to create a guest room. This area will give your family and friends plenty of privacy when they're over, and it'll make them feel more comfortable spending the night. Look for space-saving designs such as day beds or fold-out couches, and consider adding a private bathroom for more extended stays. Even if you're not planning to have visitors often, your children will appreciate a nicely remodeled room for when they return.

2. Master Suite

There are plenty of ways to maximize and personalize your space, from adding custom, walk-in closets to a luxurious master bath. This addition can also help increase your property value if you plan to sell in the future.

3. Home Office

With a spare bedroom available, you may consider creating a peaceful home office area. Even if you're looking to retire soon or don't typically work from home, an office is an ideal space for you to remove yourself from distractions in the house. This room can be a perfect place for you to do some reading, make a phone call, or indulge in a creative hobby. It's also a designated area to store files or other items that don't have a proper place in the home.
