Add a Bonus Room: Look for space within your present living area to create a bonus room, which can be used for leisure time. You might have unused space in the basement, an attached garage, or the attic. Building a bonus room should increase the market value of your home. Make the space inviting, so family members will actually use the space for watching movies together or entertaining friends. Having a bonus room will free up other parts of your home during dinner time or homework time.
Locate a space in your home to add an area that is at least 15 x 20 feet.
