Bonus rooms are typically found tucked away over garages or in the attic space on the second floor. The term "bonus room" refers to an extra living space that is not included in the total square footage calculation of a house. This means that it does not affect your property taxes and can be enjoyed as extra living space without any additional financial costs.
Having a bonus room is a great choice for potential future growth. The cost and inconvenience of expanding your home with a new addition can be prohibitive. However, converting a bonus room is usually a simple and inexpensive project that many owners can do themselves.
