A bonus suite provides a multi-purpose area in your home that can be used to best suit your lifestyle. The versatility of a bonus suite is endless. One of the great aspects of true flex-space is that it can easily be repurposed as your needs or preferences change.

A bonus suite generally includes a full bedroom, full bathroom, storage closets, and could also include a wet bar or kitchenette. It is often built over the garage in a house that has a steep roof pitch to allow for living space to be built.

The Value of a Bonus Suite

Are you wondering if it’s worth the investment to add a bonus suite to your new construction home? Additional rooms and levels will add to the cost of your new home, but it will be more affordable to add during the initial home construction than a future addition. A bonus suite with a full bedroom, full bathroom, and living area adds tremendous value to your home.

A bonus suite could be right and cost effective for you if you need additional space to accommodate family members such as a new grandchild, older children moving back home, or aging parents. It is also suitable if one or more persons work from home and need a large office with plenty of storage.
