Incorporating universal design features in a bathroom, which would make the room accessible to people with disabilities, could add $17,000. Those features would include a widened doorway, lever door handles, reinforced walls to support grab bars, lower electrical outlets and light switches, zero-threshold shower, comfort-height toilet, cabinetry and sinks accessible to someone in a wheelchair, and similar components.
Composite Deck Addition
Adding a thoughtfully designed 16-by-20-foot deck of composite material could cost $41,000. That price estimate includes a 10-foot-diameter, six-sided platform at the corner of the main deck and one step down from it. The overall structure would feature lighting, a bench, and a built-in planter. The color and architecture of the deck would blend with the home’s style.
Major Kitchen Remodel
Updating a 200-square-foot kitchen with high-end features has an average cost of $127,000.

Master Bedroom Suite Addition
A 32-by-20-foot luxury master bedroom suite addition to your home has an average cost of $257,000. The bedroom area would have a sitting area, built-in bookcases and storage with fine finishes, gas fireplace with stone hearth and custom mantel, and large walk-in closet and dressing area. The bathroom would feature a walk-in dual shower, stone shower walls and floor, freestanding soaker tub, two vanities with sinks and stone countertops, and a separate toilet area. The suite would include a 5-foot-long “hospitality center” with bar sink, under-counter refrigerator, stone countertop, microwave, and custom lighting.
