Bungalow additions are popular because they provide additional functionality, space and style to a home. This type of home remodelling typically makes use of every square foot of usable space. A home project such as this addition maximizes the space in your lot. It adds room for more people, or simply adds a space to serve a purpose. Bungalows normally have a stunning curb appeal because these types of houses are known for their large porches or even stone chimneys leading to prominently placed fireplaces which definitely add character and appeal to the overall profile of the house.
Did you know that the word “bungalow” is derived from the word “bangla” or “banglao” from Bengal, India? Back in the day, the “bangla” houses were cottages with low roofs and porches built around them.
In modern times, bungalows are typically decent small homes with the absence of a second storey. Its low profile feature is what’s most appealing about bungalows because it provides simplicity and practicality for most small families. Nowadays, a bungalow type of house has varying meaning across the globe but it usually refers to a single, detached, low-rise structure that may have one and a half storeys.
Due to the absence of a second story, bungalow additions are popular for households that have a primary need for safety. The simple structure typically does not require stair cases to be built thus the bungalow type is quite safe for families with children and elderly.
Originating from warm-weathered places, bungalows are popular for their heat-reducing properties. The attics of bungalow houses absorb a great deal of excessive heat during summer, making it a perfect eco-friendly feature that saves energy that is supposed to go to air conditioning.
