Designing Extra Space in the LBI NJ Real Estate Market
Very often, I am asked what to do with extra living space when designing a home in the LBI real estate market. With new construction being such a smart investment, we are seeing more and more buyers looking to invest in the area of the LBI market. The most traditional layout of a new home in the LBI real estate market is a reverse living layout with plenty of decks. While deviation from this design can be a major mistake in the market, there is often extra space in a home that can be re-purposed to a functional area. Therefore, understanding what to do with extra rooms in the LBI real estate market can go along way to making a smart investment.
Extra Rooms in the LBI Real Estate Market
As I mentioned above, the most traditional layout of a new construction on Long Beach Island is reversed living. This layout will consist of garage is on the ground floor with the majority of the bedrooms located on the second floor in the main living space located on the top floor. Generally speaking, this is a tried and true design to take advantage of water views throughout Long Beach Island. It is not my suggestion to deviate much from this design, however there are often spaces they can be used for other purposes. My recommendations for these spaces are:
- A home-office
- Arts and craft spaces
It can be a great advantage to have a small work space in your vacation home. This will often allow home buyers to spend more time on vacation and less time at work since they can continue their responsibilities at the beach. Additionally, an arts and craft space can be a great rainy day distraction during the summer months. From a rental standpoint, this can be a tremendous benefit to offer. Lastly a library, while it may seem obsolete in the age of digital box, can be a great place to relax and read in your vacation home. It can also double as another bedroom-something always handy on Long Beach Island.
My suggestions above can all fit into small spaces that could otherwise not be used as bedrooms or living space. Additionally, these applications of space should add value to the home in the LBI real estate market as it would offer a unique alternative to the more common design of the home.
