6 Types of Home Additions for More Space in Jericho

There comes a time when we all need more space as our family grows. Picking up and moving isn’t the only option to consider for more space! Home additions are a great way to achieve more square footage without sacrificing moving out of the neighborhood that you have established roots and a sense of community in. Depending on the amount of space your family needs, there are a few basic types of home additions to consider.

Center Island Contracting can help choose the home addition that’s right for your family’s needs. Not only will a home addition provide more space, it will also increase the value of your home. From garage conversions, to bump outs and dormers, below are 6 types of home additions to consider for more space.

Garage Conversion

Garage conversions are a cost-effective way to increase the value of your home, increase living space and increase your quality of life. Utilizing the space you already have and converting it into living space with a garage conversion will solve your space issue.

Bump Out

Bump outs are ideal for expanding certain rooms such as bathrooms or master bedrooms, without undergoing a large remodel. Leave the surrounding rooms untouched and simply bump out the room you need more space in to add more square footage.


Dormers are another type of home addition. Depending on the existing structure of your home, there are a variety of dormers to choose from, such as Eyebrow, Gable, Shed and Hipped dormers. Dormer windows are roofed structures that are typically added to the second level and increase the interior square footage of the home.


Extensions are considered anything from adding one room, to an entire wing to your house. The scope of work done in an extension varies but the end goal is always the same – to add more living space to your home.

In Law Suite

An in-law suite is a type of home addition, although it can be an addition or a conversion. An in-law suite is essentially a second living space for the in laws, like a separate apartment attached to the main house.

Basement Remodel

Basement remodels are a great opportunity to turn unused space into livable square footage. Once your basement is finished, your family can use it for whatever it needs and the home’s value will increase instantly.
