Custom Room Additions for Your Home in Lancaster, PA
You love your current home, but just wish it had more space. Do you wish your family had a little bit more room to hang out and relax after work and school commitments? Is it your dream to create a little mudroom so your kids can take off their dirty cleats instead of tracking dirt through your living room?
Shakespeare Home Improvement can help you stay in the home you love by designing a beautiful, functional room addition that helps your home grow with your family’s ever-changing needs.
A little extra room is important because the family is growing, children or parents are moving back home, you’ve started a home-based business, or any of the thousand other reasons why your existing house just isn’t big enough.
You’ve also lived in your house for a long time and know its little idiosyncrasies. You’ve become really familiar with how the light changes throughout the day and from season to season, where to take advantage of the best views, and how you move from room to room.
Considerations for adding square footage and adding an addition to your home
There are as many ways as there are reasons to add square footage to your home. Will it be to the back or the side of the house? Will it be second story above the house? Or will it be separate from the house?
We can help you design and build an addition that will blend seamlessly with your existing house – unless of course, you want your addition to make a statement of its own.
We’ve completed room additions that range in size from 100 square feet to 3,000 square feet—so we’re ready to exceed your expectations! And, if you want your addition to have the feel of a 4 season sunroom with lots of natural lighting, we will help you design a room with the comforts of the indoors but a feeling that you are part of the outdoors.
We have an architect on staff to help design how to best tie into your existing home so that it is, most importantly, safe and secure. We will show you 3D drawings of your new addition so you’ll know exactly what it will look like from the inside and out.
Shakespeare also offers complimentary interior design services to our customers to help you make all those necessary and exciting design choices.

Ideas for Laundry / Mudroom Additions
Many of the above outlined ideas of room additions are rooms that are frequently thought of when referring to a room addition and are rooms that enhance your daily life. However, a laundry/mudroom addition is a space that is incredibly functional but isn’t necessarily a room that homeowners think about adding – it’s not usually at the top of your mind.
But if your laundry is currently in the basement, maybe in an area that is not necessarily the most attractive place to do your laundry, and maybe the muck from outside is constantly being carried into the house, a laundry/mudroom addition may be the easy solution to this problem.
The addition of these types of rooms on the first floor will not only add tons of value, but will become the area where all the items you wish were not inside the house can be stored. None of the dirt and debris will be drug into the house, and performing the essential duties of laundry will become much less of a chore when it’s conveniently located in an area of the home that is easy in and easy out, while you continue on the duties of cooking dinner or just relaxing with the family!
Below are just a few pictures of laundry/mudroom ideas to start you thinking about how this could improve the quality of your everyday life!
