Here are our top family room addition ideas for creating extra living space that’s enjoyable and stylish.
Home additions are perfect for those who love their house or simply don’t want the stress of moving. In particular, family room additions are an excellent way to add customizable living space to your home. Now more than ever, families want room to spread out and to come together. They also want space that better caters to their lifestyle. With all that in mind, here are our top three family room addition ideas to help plan your bump out.
Wall of Windows
A family room addition can be an excellent way to let sunlight pour into the home. After all, life in SoCal is all about the sunshine, right? A wall of windows does just that. Whether the addition is one story or two (as shown below), this design approach gives your new living room a huge wow-factor. It showcases the outdoors, brightens the space with natural light, and creates a stunning focal point.

Built-In Media Center & Storage
What family doesn’t need more storage space? Be it blankets, games, toys or books, extra storage goes a long way. Luckily, built-ins offer a ton of customization possibilities. You can add a media center that hides cords, cable boxes and video games. You can add cabinets for hiding unsightly clutter and toys. And you can add open shelves for displaying pictures, trinkets and books. When adding built-ins to your living room addition, we recommend custom-building the media center and/or storage so it’s best suited to your space, style and needs.
One of the great things about life in Southern California is we get to spend so much time outdoors. Why not make it easier to access from your home? Adding sliding glass doors, accordion doors, French doors or even garage doors deliver style and direct access to your yard. It also lets in more natural light and fresh air. When going this route, we always recommend you consider your landscaping and patio design so the outdoor space complements your new family room addition.
