4 Practical Ideas for Your Home Addition Project in 2024

As 2024 progresses, a trend is emerging. Homeowners across Toronto are creating the extra space they need throughout their homes by adding a home addition. Here are a few ideas to implement during your additions remodel. From kitchen bump outs to converting your basement, home additions can change the way you enjoy your home. Let’s look at four stellar ideas for your upcoming reno.

1. Reconfigure Your Kitchen

Your kitchen is one of the most important areas of your home, and nobody likes to feel cramped while preparing meals. That’s what makes a kitchen addition or expansion such a great idea. Bumping out your kitchen or adding an addition will give you the opportunity to reconfigure the layout to relieve congestion, as well as add the storage you need to eliminate counter clutter. A larger kitchen footprint can also provide space for islands with seating which will help to keep foot traffic to a minimum during meal prep. Of course, new kitchens provide ample opportunity for gorgeous new finishes, too. Consider incorporating natural stone countertops and high-quality flooring to make your space look as luxurious as possible. You can also upgrade your new kitchen with voice-controlled smart technology to make everyday life easier. Enhanced with improved traffic flow, aesthetics, and cooking technology, your expanded kitchen will allow you to make countless new memories with friends and family for years to come.

2. Go Down to Level Up with a Basement Renovation

If you truly want to increase the living space in your home, look down. Your basement is a great place to start. Whether it’s yet to be finished or could use a total conversion, deciding to reno your basement can open a world of possibility. The options are limitless for its use, with anything from a home gym, to a playroom, to a wet bar. Expanding the space to better connect with the outdoors will improve its accessibility. With the help of our design build team, you can dramatically increase livable space with a functional basement renovation that incorporates an addition. If you set to expand your kitchen it only makes sense to dig out for a full height basement since your new kitchen extension will require a foundation anyway. Whether you choose to have a crawl space or a full height basement under your new kitchen it will not make a big difference on your budget. Both will require a similar amount of effort and material but the impact on your living space will be dramatic.Of course, new kitchens provide ample opportunity for gorgeous new finishes, too. Consider incorporating natural stone countertops and high-quality flooring to make your space look as luxurious as possible. You can also upgrade your new kitchen with voice-controlled smart technology to make everyday life easier.

3. Beautify Your Bathroom

Your primary bathroom is one of the spaces you should prioritize during your home addition renovation this year. This is the room you see first thing every morning. It sets the mood for the day ahead. You deserve to give it a boost. Expanding your home with an addition to accommodate a revamped primary suite will provide the space you need for a comfortable shower with a good water pressure, a vanity that offers not only esthetics but functional storage and a luxurious primary bathtub you’ve always dreamed of. From heated flooring, to a zero threshold shower with a stain-free glass enclosure, your Sosna designer can help you create a spa-like retreat where you can relax and wind down after a hard day of work or play.

4. Let the Sunshine in With a New Sunroom

For a taste of the outdoors without leaving your home, we recommend expanding your home with a brand-new sunroom addition. Be sure to include high-quality windows that offer UV protection and strong insulation to keep the room temperature comfortable year round. While the space will offer ample natural light, be sure to add quality ambient lighting, allowing you to set the mood and take full advantage of your space for a variety of activities, such as enjoying your morning coffee or hosting a family game night. Sunrooms can also be equipped with motorized shades for privacy after dark, as well as folding, or sliding glass walls that can be opened to adjacent outdoor living areas for easy entertaining.
