Which Type of Home Addition Would Best Fit Your Needs?

In today’s article, Premier Quality Home Improvements, your local remodeling and outdoor living contractor, shares some tips to help you decide.


This type of addition adds new space to the back of your home. It may be more costly than other types of additions on a per-square-foot basis, but it is still economical because it doesn’t require foundational support. Typically, it measures around three feet wide and up to 12 feet long—this provides additional square footage for a tub or shower to your master bathroom, an eat-in area in your kitchen or a walk-in closet in your bedroom.


Sunrooms are a great way to enclose patios or decks, allowing everyone in the household to enjoy the beauty of nature and the feeling of being outdoors. Smaller than full-sized additions, sunrooms are often constructed using prefabricated materials like aluminum and heat-resistant glass, which are assembled on-site. Since this area takes advantage of natural lighting, sunrooms can be used as playrooms for children, home offices or home studios.

Home Addition

A full-sized addition can involve enlarging an existing room, adding at least one room, or building a two-story addition. It can be used for almost any purpose as long as it meets your family’s needs. Here, you can add a bathroom, family room, home office or a master bedroom suite.
