With a fully functioning apartment to house your guests, everyone is happy and more comfortable. Read on to discover in-law suite ideas for your home!
What Exactly Is an In-Law Suite?
An in-law suite is simply an addition built to a pre-existing home to accommodate guests, or in some cases, family. Whether you have family living with you for an extended period of time out of choice or necessity, an in-law suite allows you to maintain privacy and for your guests to feel comfortable, while not getting in your way. This is an excellent way to support your family or guests while maintaining your sanity.
In-law suites will vary based on your personal preferences, but most come equipped with a bedroom, a bathroom, and a kitchenette. Depending on the layout of your home, an in-law suite can easily be built to work with your home aesthetically and naturally. There are hundreds of in-law suite plans to build as an addition for your home, you just need to be sure you’re hiring the right team to do your work.
Consider Building an In-Law Suite Above Your Garage:
An easy way to create additional space on your property for guests to enjoy privacy and comfortability is by an in-law suite addition built right over your garage. Not all garages are created equally, of course. Some garages don’t have the structural integrity to accommodate an in-law suite addition, however, if you have a sizable garage with a solid foundation, a contractor could get moving on renovation plans for adding a level to your garage if possible, or converting your garage into a beautiful in-law suite for you in no time.
More In-Law Suite Ideas:
Another exciting way to make your new in-law suite count is to rent it out to a tenant for either a short or long term lease, depending on your personal preference. If your in-law suite is private enough with its own entrance and fully detached from your home, having a tenant can make a great deal of sense.
If you’re a homeowner, it’s never a bad idea to capitalize on your space and make the most of your investment. By adding an in-law suite addition to your house, you’re opening you and your family up to the opportunity to make more money. In-law additions also make for convenient accommodations for your family’s caretakers, whether it’s live-in nannies or hospice workers.
Does an In-Law Suite Add Value to My Property?
Building an in-law suite on your property adds incredible value, particularly in California. As far as resale value goes, you’ve now created a full other bedroom and kitchen, increasing your home’s current value. If you’re going forward with building an in-law suite on your property, be sure you’re going with the right people for the job, as a poorly done in-law suite will not do you favors now or when you go to sell your home in the future.
