Ideas for Adding onto Your Chilliwack House

Home Renovation | November 14, 2019

Getting to know some simple ideas for adding onto your Chilliwack house can help you gain more square footage without moving from the home you love. At Ridgepoint Homes, we want to help you create a home that you will love for years to come. That is why we offer a range of home remodelling services to customers living throughout Chilliwack and the surrounding areas.

1. Put a Room Over the Garage

If you are looking for a great way to add extra square footage to your space without turning your home into a construction zone, consider adding a bonus room or apartment over the garage of your Chilliwack home. Since the foundation of the garage is already in place, all you will really need to add are walls and a new roof.

2. Add onto Your Kitchen

Remodelling the kitchen in your Chilliwack home will provide you with a great return on investment. Consider expanding the kitchen’s square footage by converting a nearby flex space or by using a bump-out addition for a walk-in pantry or a breakfast nook.

3. Expand the Bathroom

Try extending the size of your master bathroom to make space for a soaking tub or dual sinks to help increase your square footage and the home’s overall value. If you are living in a small Chilliwack home and are wanting to add an extra bathroom, consider converting underutilized small spaces like under the stairs, a closet, the attic, or part of the basement.

4. Change the Porch into a Sunroom

If you are thinking about converting your front porch into a sunroom, it is important to keep in mind that, in order for a porch to be considered livable square footage, it needs to have heating and be accessible from the house. Converting your Chilliwack home’s porch into a sunroom can be the perfect way to create a second living room with comfortable furniture and ample lighting.

5. Turn an Attached Garage into an Extra Room

One of the easiest ways to add more livable square footage to your Chilliwack home is to convert the garage into an extra room. Consider turning your garage into a gym, art studio, games room, guest bedroom, or playroom for the kids.
