Adding Multi-Purpose Spaces to Your Home

Adding Multi-Purpose Spaces to Your Home

It’s a fact that 2020 has made some big changes in our lives. Work-at-home and Zoom meetings – schools switching to virtual classrooms – even kids that you thought had flown the nest for college are now rattling around in your refrigerator and staying up late.

At this point, you may be wondering where you can get some extra living space. It might not be time to add an extra story to your home, but this could be the perfect reason to get that sunroom or 3-season room you’ve been thinking about.

Not only do you get extra space – you’re also bringing in light and a multi-purpose area that will help out everyone in your household. Let’s take a look at how you can make this particular enhancement work even harder.

Adding Multi-Purpose Spaces to Your Home

Nobody ever said student life was easy – for your kids OR your dining room table. Big projects, piles of books, and all the related school supplies that follow your young scholars around take up a lot of room. If you’ve been wondering when you’re going to get your kitchen island or family dinners back – it’s time to send everyone off to a better place. That’s right – the sunroom.

When you’re working up plans with your contractor, talk about extra outlets and keeping a spot open for a more efficient work area and an oversized table. Other considerations could be low-maintenance flooring and task lighting.

Sunrooms and 3-season rooms are a big draw for both family and guests. If you’re going to be using it for overflow dining on special occasions, as a second living room, or even for extra sleeping space over the holidays, remember this in your planning stages. The room above has a great balance between seating, traffic flow to the outside, and a large dining table that can double as a workspace.

Hardwood floors, porcelain tile, or other hard surface options are also beneficial when you’re frequently moving furniture around. As for that furniture – shop for pieces that are also good at multi-tasking, like benches and convertible sofas.

Keep your new space comfortable year-round with special touches. Here at J&J, we help our clients tailor their new room additions with amenities like heated floors, fireplaces, Bluetooth-controlled HVAC units, and ceiling fans.

With thoughtful design details like these, your sunroom can feel like a mini-vacation home. Settling up your laptop by the fire for your regular Zoom meeting while you watch the snow fall? Why not?

The beauty of a room addition is that you have a blank slate for your ideas – and the opportunity to treat yourself to a space that works for you, even while you’re working.

Want to know a trade secret? Sunrooms and 3-Season rooms are great for naps, or even overnight guests. There’s just something about the breezy openness, the natural light, and the note of privacy that they provide.

Don’t forget about the need for a good sleeping spot. You might take the time, once you’ve gotten your 3-D design preview, to figure out where in the room will be the ideal location. We guarantee that if any family members or guests disappear, it will soon become the first place you’ll look.
