Best Room Additions for Most Value? Kitchens, Bathrooms and Bedrooms


Central Construction Group built this 14-by-17-foot room addition to expand the home’s kitchen and eat-in dining room.

When it comes to expanding your home, there are a ton of options from which to choose. Maybe you want to enlarge a kitchen, add a bathroom, build a master suite, or even add an entire second floor to a ranch-style home.

Planning a room addition can be a huge undertaking, but with the right consultation and planning, an expansion can make your home more functional, therefore increasing its value in the long term. Just be aware that not all room additions provide a good return on investment.

“If planning an addition, it is best to utilize it as a kitchen expansion, adding a bathroom, bedroom, or all three,” says Central Construction Group President Brian Oltmanns. “The more usable bath/bedroom/kitchen space you can obtain with an addition, the better off you will be from an investment standpoint.”

According to Home Advisor, the average cost for a room addition  ranges from $20,000 to-$60,000, depending on the size of the project. Finishing a basement is one of the most least expensive ways to expand your home, because the slab and walls are already in place.

Reconfiguring Space Makes Financial Sense

Sometimes reconfiguring a space makes the most financial sense rather than building up or out. Recent clients of CCG have inquired about adding a second story or building out a room addition to their existing home, while others with a second floor have asked us to reconfigure the space to add a master suite, walk-in closet or laundry room.


For this room addition project, the basement has been dug out and walls have been poured. The ceiling and floor joist framing for the first-floor Family Room Addition is in progress!
