Today’s families prefer open living spaces that flow from one room to the next, allowing for meal preparation and socialization in one central area. That's why family room additions are such a hot trend today. A family room addition is the perfect solution to open up your home and provide an all-purpose space for all of your activities.

Here are some things to consider incorporating into your family room addition:

  • Position the new space adjacent to your kitchen to allow socialization and good flow
  • An informal dining area
  • A corner office space that can double has a homework station
  • Built in storage areas such as shelves or cabinets to house books, games, or family photos
  • Sturdy and easy to clean flooring to hold up to heavy traffic
