Despite the push toward tiny living, we all need extra space sometimes! Since bonus rooms typically take advantage of space that’s already under roof, they tend to be more economical than building a new addition from the foundation up. That savings makes them a practical choice for homeowners who desire more room for everyday living. Since these are “extra” spaces, their use can evolve over time, serving first as a playroom, then a family gathering area, and later as a separate living space for older children or aging parents. Indeed, their flexibility is one of the primary reasons we love these spaces.
