In-Law Suites

Are you considering adding to your home? Do you have a basement space you need to remodel? An in-law suite is a great option!

It is also a great way to add value to your home, which is something many homeowners are looking to do.

These home additions are becoming more and more popular around New Jersey and the United States, increasing in occurrence by 30% in the past few years. Some people call them mother-in-law suites.

Ideas for an In-Law Suite

There are a variety of amenities an in-law suite can contain. Some of the basic sections we can build include:

  • Kitchens: From a small kitchenette to a fully functional kitchen, in-law suites often have kitchen spaces. We can custom design a kitchen that will blend seamlessly into the rest of the suite and meet your budget and the needs of your family, especially the members who will be living in the suite.
  • Bathrooms: Let us create a beautiful, accessible bathroom for your family members! We can build a shower, a tub, or even ensure handicapped access. No matter what your needs, we can accommodate them. We’ll ensure that we work within your budget range and your current home’s style.
  • Living Space: This could be a large bedroom, a living room, or both. If you have a smaller space, we could create a cozy and comfortable bedroom with some extra seating. If you have a larger space, or are willing to build onto your home, we can create a bedroom and a sitting room or living room to provide your relatives with the most comfort and ease possible.


And more! There are practically endless ways to customize your in-law suite! Whatever your needs are, our professional designers will create a custom floorplan that works with your home, your needs, your budget, and your schedule.

Benefits to an In-Law Suite

In addition to the peace of mind an in-law suite can bring by allowing you to keep your aging relatives close in case they need anything, these suites can also dramatically increase the value of your home. In some areas, an in-law suite could increase your listing price by up to 60%! So even if you do not have elderly relatives that you want to keep close, adding an in-law suite to your home could vastly increase your resale value and be a great addition to your home for overnight guests.

When we meet with you, we’ll take some measurements, talk about your budget, and help you get started with your dream renovation.

Whether you just have some questions or are interested in setting up a consultation with us, we’d love to hear from you. And a consultation with you doesn’t mean you have to choose us! You are under no obligation to work with us – but we’d love it if you did. So please, contact us today!
