Most people don’t realize that they have the perfect area to make a room addition to their home. It’s the unused slab of concrete attached to your house that you once lovingly called your patio. For many, this patio has become more of a place to store unwanted items so they are not in the house. Those items that should really be in the garage, but never quite make it that far.
Don’t let your patio end up being an open-air, storage facility; when you can enclose it and make a room out of it.
Make a Room from Unused Space
If you aren’t using your patio for storage, it is probably sitting there unused then. Instead of letting that concrete do nothing more than prevent the grass from growing, take advantage of it being a foundation already laid to make an addition to your home.
Making a room from an unused patio will not only add value to your home, it may even make you think twice about selling your home and moving into a bigger one.
An enclosed patio works as a playroom for children. It will give you a single place to keep all of your kid’s, or even grandkid’s, toys and games, so they are not stored all over their house. It also gets the toys and games out of their bedrooms, leaving them with no distractions in there when they are supposed to be getting ready for school or sleeping.
For the kids, it provides a place to play where lots of sunshine can come in through the many windows that can be used to enclose the patio. It also gives them a fun and safe place to watch the weather outside without you have to worry about them.
Make a Room for Recreation
Have you ever wanted a pool table or a room where you can store your exercise equipment and free weights? Instead of enclosing that unused patio for a kid’s playroom, make a room for recreation instead.
By enclosing the patio with lots of windows you will have plenty of natural light to soak up while playing. You can also open the windows to allow in the fresh air and give the room the open air feeling of being outside while you are working out or relaxing.
What you choose to do with that unused patio once you have decided to make a room from it is only restricted by your imagination. No matter what you choose, Renewal by Andersen can walk you through how to make a room from this space, so you never feel lost during any of the process. Schedule your free in-home consultation today!
