There are many good reasons to add a family room addition to your home. The room is frequently is larger than the home’s living room, and allows for larger, more informal gatherings when the living room is reserved for formal guest situations. Many households today also reserve the family room for their TV watching, helping to preserve the furniture and carpets in the more formal living room. Family rooms are also frequently used when entertaining family and friends, particularly when the kitchen or original living/dining area is too small or cramped.

Perhaps you’ve recently added members to your family such as new children or older parents, and your home is feeling extra crowded. Whatever your reasons may be, Thomas Custom Builders is here to help you plan, design, and build your new family room addition to meet the needs of your particular household situation.

Factors to Consider While Planning Your New Addition:

  • Consider where you would like your family room to be located. Having them on the first-floor is the most popular among prospective homebuyers, but the location is totally up to you.
  • Think about where doors would be most appropriate, including any to the outside of the house, as well as interior doors leading to the rest of the house.
  • Consider what is an appropriate size. Think about what size room would complement your already existing home, and also think about how the new room will be used, and by whom.
  • Think about what kind of furniture and appliances (such as a TV or a stereo system) that you would like to be able to fit into your new addition. This should also help you figure out what size the new room should be.

When planning your family room addition, don’t forget to include a new or upgraded bathroom. This is a great time to consider a bathroom remodel or an upgrade on a small powder room.  Not only is it cost-efficient, but you’ll have a stunning new environment for guests.
