Many of us love to be able to cook and entertain in our kitchen without missing any of the action that is going on in our living room. This is why a living room can be much more than an addition. By building next to your kitchen you can create an open floor plan that allows for a multi-functioning gathering space.
A home that may benefit the most from a living room addition is a house with a small or medium sized kitchen that is segregated from formal living rooms by interior walls. The cost is relatively lower per square foot because you’re not typically dealing with major appliances, or plumbing. This is no doubt a major project but one experts consider a worthwhile investment. A living room addition is one that will recoup 68.8% of its value when considering resale stated by remodeling magazine .
