A small addition, or “bump-out”, that enlarges an existing room can be a value-conscious remodeling project. Often a bump-out brightens your home more than a large addition.
Look around your home for cramped, dark areas that could be improved with a minimum-sized addition. Have you considered adding a walk-in bay window to your dining room? You’ll be amazed at how this small change will open up and brighten the room. How about a deep window seat in your favorite room for a cozy reading nook? This can be designed to include hidden storage. Have you dreamt of a whirlpool in the bathroom? A bump-out would give you room for the new bath and an expanse of windows to add spaciousness. Bump-outs may have a funny name, but they can add space, light, and interest to many rooms in your house.
