Room Addition Ideas for your Dormer, Extension or Addition

As homeowners, we’re always looking for ways to add more space to our homes without spending a fortune. There are several ways to add on to your home to increase the square footage, including dormers, extensions, home additions, or a complete interior remodel.

Adding square footage will always increase the value of your home, so there’s no such thing as a bad home addition investment. The experts at Center Island Contracting can provide ideas and inspiration to expand your home with rooms that will attract home buyers in the future and make your home more functional for your family until that happens.

Kitchen Extension

Extending your kitchen is always a good idea. It provides more storage space, seating space and a more roomy kitchen to cook and socialize in. Depending on the size of your kitchen extension, consider adding a walk-in pantry to keep your kitchen appliances and food neat and organized.

Finish Basement

Finish your basement to make use of unused square footage in your home. There are many options for rooms in your basement, such as a guest suite with a bathroom, home office or a gym. It can also be a playroom for your young kids or a hang out space for teenagers.

Add a Bathroom

Adding or expanding on a bathroom can increase the resale value of your home. Bathrooms should be relaxing retreats within our homes, which is why many homeowners will invest in a bathroom remodel or addition. We’re all seeking a little slice of peace at home!

Second Story

This is a larger home addition project, but it will add the most square footage to your home. Talk to our contracting experts to see if your home qualifies for a second story addition. If it does, there are many purposes for it like adding more bedrooms and bathrooms to your home.

Sun Room

Close in your porch to make a multi-purpose sun room. If your porch is a large space but isn’t being used for most of the year, turning it into a sunroom is a great idea to add more livable square footage to your home. Add some furniture and make it your own!


Dormers can add more space to your attic and give it more natural light. Refinish your attic after adding a dormer and use it for an office or guest room. The added square footage will add to the overall value of your home.
