Oversized Bonus Room

A bonus room is a large room in a house which can be used as a multi-purpose area. Typically a bonus room is located over a garage or in an attic area with partially reduced ceiling height due to the roof pitch of the home.

Bonus Rooms Are Versatile Spaces

Need plenty of storage space in your new home? If so, look at our house plans with oversized bonus rooms. Bonus rooms are considered unfinished space and not included in the total square footage of a home unless the owner decides to finish the space upon building the home. Allowing you to finish the bonus room over the garage gives you the ultimate flexibility in creating the type of living space you want. Make it another bedroom with a bathroom or it can be a large office or a mixed-use space of a guest room and media room. For those organizational fanatics, create the storage space of your dreams!

Our house plan 1350, The Travis, is a great example of a home with a large bonus room that was built and finished by the homeowners and used as a media room with 2 different sitting areas and a half bath added for convenience.

If you are looking for that oversized bonus room or other flexible spaces, start with Donald A. Gardner Architects, and buy your house plans directly from the architects. You can search online by square footage or the features you want, or contact our design team to discuss your goals. If you want to add additional storage or increase the size of the bonus room on an existing house plan, our modification services can help.
