One-Room Home Additions

A slideshow of beautiful one-room home additions, showing a variety of designs and styles


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Garden Rooms

      The architect connected this garden room to the rest of the home by removing a portion of a wall and replacing it with a wide hallway. Slate-tile flooring, banks of windows, decorative beams, and the fireplace all add architectural detail. Note that placing the fireplace on the outer wall makes venting easy.

    • Pool House Addition

      Building an addition that projects out onto the patio creates a gathering space and transition area between pool decks and homes. This is a good example of how to use an existing structure to inspire the lines of an addition.

    • Colorful Living Area

      A coffered ceiling and a new fireplace transform a boxy space into a welcoming family room. Before you add a stone fireplace, have your contractor check the foundation to make sure it can support the weight.

    • Tall Window-Filled Addition

      Pendant lights and a ceiling fan dangle between the exposed trusses, providing light and air circulation without interfering with the views into or out of the oversize windows.

    • Skylights and French Doors

      French doors, windows, and skylights give this addition an atrium like quality. Note the way pillars were used to support the load-bearing beam that separates the original house from the addition.
