Benefits of Adding on a Great Room

When you add an extra room onto your home, you want it to be functional and inviting. A great room can do just that because it’s a room for the entire family. Unlike a guest room that you may only use occasionally, a great room can be an everyday space that every member of your family enjoys. In addition, great rooms provide the following benefits.

  • Versatility. A great room can be anything you want it to be. It can even change purposes as quickly as your whims. For example, it can be the setting for a cozy family movie night on Friday and set the stage for a Girl Scout meeting on Saturday. The options are nearly endless.
  • Natural light. Most great rooms are attached to the rear of your home—although side great rooms are an option, too—and have doors that open to the outside. Beautiful French doors or sliding glass can give your home a bit of natural light.
  • Open space. If you crave open space for activities, a great room is the answer. Great rooms are designed to be large areas with typically high ceilings to give you all of the room to breathe and move.

Design Elements for Your Great Room in VA, DC, or MD

To make the most of your great room addition, we often recommend many design elements to enhance your new space. Some of our favorite design elements include:

  • Windowed walls. For the wall that faces the outside, we often recommend installing lots of windows or even floor-to-ceiling glass to bring in soft, natural light.
  • Built-in surround sound. Great rooms often turn into large theater rooms, so knowing where you want to place the television can help when your builders are wiring your audio equipment to enhance the sound quality.
  • Fireplaces. If you want your great room to be cozy and relaxing, a fireplace, whether gas, electric, or wood-burning, can add a sense of ambiance to your new room.
  • Dramatic ceilings. A great room addition is a perfect opportunity to add some drama to your décor with a vaulted, coffered, or tray ceiling.
  • Sitting area. Even in a spacious family room, there should be space for quiet moments and solitary getaways—install a reading nook for extra privacy!
