Bonus Room Construction & Remodeling
Transforming bonus rooms in Holly Springs, Apex, Cary, and Fuquay-Varina

A bonus room is an additional, versatile space in a home that can be used for a variety of purposes, depending on your needs and preferences. Unlike other rooms in a house that have designated functions, such as bedrooms, bathrooms, or kitchens, a bonus room is a flexible area that can be adapted to serve multiple functions or accommodate changing needs over time.

Bonus rooms can be found in different parts of a home, such as above garages, attics, dormers, in basements, or as a separate space on the main living floor. Homeowners may choose to use bonus rooms as home offices, entertainment rooms, playrooms for children, guest bedrooms, home gyms, or hobby and craft spaces, among other purposes.

The appeal of a bonus room lies in its adaptability and the potential for personalization, allowing homeowners to create a unique space that reflects their interests, enhances their lifestyle, and adds value to their property.

At Branch Home Improvement LLC, we are a dedicated home remodeling contractor based in Holly Springs, proudly serving homeowners throughout the Triangle area of North Carolina including Apex, Cary, and Fuquay-Varina. Our expertise lies in building and remodeling bonus rooms for our clients throughout Wake County.

Spaces We Can Convert To Bonus Rooms

Homeowners in Apex, Fuquay-Varina, Cary, and Holly Springs are increasingly seeking ways to make the most of their living spaces by converting unused areas into functional, versatile bonus rooms.

These bonus rooms can serve various purposes, such as home offices, entertainment areas, guest rooms, or hobby spaces, adding value and comfort to your home.  Here are a few of the different spaces that can be transformed into bonus rooms.

Attics: Attics are often overlooked, underutilized spaces that can be transformed into stunning bonus rooms. With their unique architectural features, such as sloping ceilings and exposed beams, attics provide a cozy and intimate atmosphere that can be perfect for creating a home office, library, or reading nook. Before converting an attic, it's essential to consider factors like insulation, ventilation, and structural support to ensure the space is comfortable and safe for use.

Unused Space Above Garages: The area above your garage, also known as a "garage loft," can be an ideal space for creating a bonus room. Converting this space can provide you with a separate, dedicated area for a variety of uses, such as a home gym, a guest suite, or an entertainment room. When transforming a garage loft, consider adding proper insulation, soundproofing, and access options, such as a separate staircase or an exterior entrance, to maximize functionality and privacy.

Basements: A basement can be a treasure trove of potential when it comes to creating a bonus room. Depending on the size and layout, you can transform your basement into a home theater, a game room, or even a fully-functioning apartment for extended family or guests. Make sure to address any moisture issues, install proper lighting, and consider adding insulation and soundproofing to make the space comfortable and inviting.

Underused Corners and Alcoves: Every home has those underused corners and alcoves that often go unnoticed. With some creativity, these spaces can be repurposed into functional and attractive bonus rooms. For example, a large alcove could be transformed into a cozy reading nook or a mini home office. Utilize built-in shelving, seating, and efficient lighting to maximize the space and create a comfortable environment.

Enclosed Porches or Sunrooms: Enclosed porches or sunrooms can also be converted into bonus rooms, providing a bright and airy space for relaxation or hobbies. These rooms are particularly well-suited for creating a home office, art studio, or meditation space, as they typically offer abundant natural light and views of the outdoors. To ensure year-round comfort, consider adding insulation, heating, and cooling options to the space.

Splitting Larger Rooms: If your home has an exceptionally large room, you might consider splitting it into two separate spaces to create a bonus room. This can be an effective way to make better use of your square footage and introduce a new, functional area to your home. The conversion can be done by installing a partition wall and even incorporating sliding or folding doors for flexibility.


By tapping into the potential of unused spaces in your home, you can create versatile, functional, and personalized bonus rooms that cater to your unique needs and interests. Whether it's an attic, a garage loft, or an underused corner, there's a wealth of opportunity waiting to be discovered in these often-overlooked areas. So, let your creativity run wild and transform these hidden gems into beautiful, functional spaces that enhance your home and lifestyle.

A bonus room is a versatile, additional space in a home that can serve a variety of purposes, depending on the homeowner's needs and preferences. Unlike other rooms in a house with designated functions, a bonus room is a flexible area that can be adapted to accommodate changing needs over time. Common uses for bonus rooms include home offices, entertainment rooms, playrooms, guest bedrooms, and hobby spaces.

Several spaces within a home can be transformed into bonus rooms. Some of the most common areas include attics, unused spaces above garages, basements, underused corners and alcoves, enclosed porches or sunrooms, and by splitting large rooms.

Before embarking on a bonus room project, consider factors such as the purpose of the room, the existing structure and layout, access, insulation, ventilation, lighting, electrical, plumbing, soundproofing, and any potential obstacles or challenges that might arise during the conversion process.

The timeline for completing a bonus room project depends on the complexity and scope of the work, as well as factors such as permitting, inspections, and material availability. On average, bonus room projects can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. Our team at Branch Home Improvement will provide you with a detailed project timeline during the planning and consultation stage.

In most cases, you will need a permit to build or remodel a bonus room, especially if the project involves structural changes, electrical work, or plumbing modifications. Our team at Branch Home Improvement will help guide you through the permitting process and ensure that all work is completed in compliance with local building codes and regulations.

Before starting a bonus room project, it's essential to evaluate your home's existing electrical and HVAC systems to ensure they can support the additional space.

What Our Home Remodeling Clients Say...


I rarely ever write reviews, in fact this is my first one. I had such an amazing experience with Branch construction that I have to share with everyone. Of course doing an addition during a pandemic had many challenges, but they were very upfront and helpful every step of the way. I would have never imagined that our addition would look this great. My wife and I love our new addition thanks to Branch construction. I would definitely recommend them and use them again.

Tyrone Haile November 9, 2021

Branch created a small home office addition to our home. The entire project was constructed during the height of the pandemic and they constantly exercised safety measures. Furthermore, they bent over backwards to make sure every detail was to our liking. They installed "secret bookcase doors" to help us separate work life from home life. They also created a custom storage room with a special garage door to make it look great from the outside. During construction they kept us informed of when things would happen, and the final product is exactly what we were looking for. Our timelines ran longer than expected, mainly due to factors from the Pandemic. But what I love most is that they stick to their word. They quoted a price and they stuck to it, even as construction costs soared. If you want a contractor who is going to stick to their word and create a beautiful product at a fair price, you have to call the team at Branch.

Ken Jones March 24, 2021

We recently used Branch Home Improvement to finish our attic space into a bonus room, bedroom, and bathroom. From the beginning, Bennett and Ken took the time to listen to our thoughts, answer our numerous questions, and provide options for our space. Daniel did an amazing job of transforming our space, communicating status and next steps, and making sure that everything that was done was done right. Branch Home Improvement values quality, they are reliable and trustworthy, and the pricing was reasonable. Everyone that we interacted with at Branch was pleasant to work with, and they did a wonderful job of taking our vision and making the space even better than we imagined! I would highly recommend Branch Home Improvement and would use them again in the future.

Elise Gredvig July 2, 2020

Bennett, Daniel, Ken and the rest of the team at Branch Home Improvement just recently completed finishing our walk-up attic into a large bonus room with custom built-in shelves and a perfectly sized full bathroom. Not only do we love the finished product, but the entire experience was really great. Everyone was a joy to work with and you really get the benefits of working with a small family owned-business. Not only is the quality of the work outstanding, but they were very communicative and flexible to our schedules and wants throughout the project. They were also EXTREMELY fair in terms of price. We couldn't be happier and definitely recommend them!

Dan Riccio November 9, 2019

Branch Home Improvement is a top notch company all the way around. I couldn't be more pleased with the service they gave me. Bennett was my primary contact and he communicated with me every step of the way through my remolding process. From my initial consultation until the job was complete Branch went over and above what the job required. I finished 600 square feet of bonus room above my garage. We added a full bathroom including a shower. We also added several storage space with 2 sliding closets. This will be a great addition as my family continues to grow. Thanks for all you do! Keep up the great work!
