Why You Should Consider a Bump-Out Addition
If your home needs more space but you don’t want to take on a full addition, you might want to consider adding a bump-out. A bump-out is an addition to an existing wall that extends the size of the room. It’s less expensive and easier to do than a traditional addition, but still adds a ton of space to your home. If planned correctly, a bump-out can improve your home’s functionality, overall feel, and value. Here are a few ways a bump-out could benefit your home.
1. Enlarge your master suite. If your master bathroom is small and lacking proper space, a bump-out will increase the square footage. You’ll be able to add a large soaking tub, increase the size of the shower, or even add that walk-in closet you’ve been wanting.
2. Increase your kitchen space. Large, open kitchens are popular for a good reason. They let in a ton of light, add an eating area, and allow for plenty of working space. If your kitchen is on the small side, a bump-out will give you the space to expand your kitchen and create your ideal space.
3. Add an entertainment center. Dens are a great place to add an entertainment center for your family. A bump-out can add extra space to allow for all of your different gadgets like a large television, speakers, and more without infringing upon your existing space.
4. Create a window seat. Window seats are a great way to increase natural light and add a sitting area in your bedroom. They can easily be added to your upstairs or downstairs bedrooms to improve the overall look and feel of the space.
