Types of Home Additions

You may be thinking in terms of limitations. Don’t. You have more options than you realize. Some people reject their own ideas as too outlandish or expensive too soon.

When you share your ideas with your Marvista Design + Build team, we’ll take the possibilities to reality.

Some home additions include:

  • Bathroom – If the toilet is the first thing you see when you open a bathroom door, you’ll benefit from a bathroom upgrade, expansion, or addition. A bathroom addition will be the home improvement that pays off most in terms of lifestyle and property value.
  • Kitchen – Kitchen remodeling projects and additions generate as much as 93% return on investment. You can expand storage to include a walk-in pantry or add a much-needed breakfast nook. You can’t go wrong when you invest in a Pittsburgh kitchen addition with Marvista Design + Build.
  • Master suite – Add the master suite you’ve always dreamed of, with walk-in closets and a spa-luxury master bath! It’s doable and a sound investment.
  • Second story – A second story can keep your family together but offer enough space and privacy to provide separate lifestyles. This is a major construction renovation, so you’ll need to ensure your investment will pay off in terms of value and price. Marvista Design + Build will help with the math.
  • Guest bedroom – Adding a bedroom to your Pittsburgh property is a great way to enhance living space. Partner with your Marvista Design + Build team to make it happen!
  • Garage apartment – These home additions are trending in popularity because they offer the best of all worlds. Your garage apartment gives respectful privacy while maintaining close connections with family members. This separate space can help keep the family together!
  • Grandparent house – They are called “pods,” “flats,” “man caves,” or “she sheds.” They are often miniature versions of your own Pittsburgh home’s architecture in another structure and are perfect for aging parents, college kids, home office space, or private retreats.
  • Basement – Adding space to a basement isn’t always possible, but redefining its purpose is a great way to improve your home’s value. Update flooring; add walls, plumbing, and outlets; consider a separate living area, guest quarters, or game room.
  • Mudroom – “Mudroom” is just a word for that space in which you dump snowshoes, wet umbrellas, schoolbooks, car keys, dog leashes, you name it. It can also be a laundry room. Whatever you call it, this home addition adds valuable space and visual appeal to your property.
  • Dormer – You can add valuable space to your attic with a dormer. Dormers make your home look larger and add light and warmth.
