Ranch Home Additions That Modernize & Refresh Your Residence
Traditional single-floor ranch style homes are abundant in the state of California after their rise in popularity during the 1950s and 1960s. Whether you own one of the classics or a new build that mimics the signature open-concept layout and devoted patio space, you may be interested in additions that will modernize your home, improve its overall functionality for your growing family, and/or incorporate universal design features that support aging-in-place. Design-build firm Gridley Company, based in the San Jose area, specializes in ranch style home additions that are creative, innovative, and seamlessly integrate renovations into the existing structure, inside and out.
Imagine your home with a wide open floor plan, spacious second story, vaulted ceilings, and new modernized aesthetic. Now envision the designing, planning, and building processes being thorough, simple, and quick. Gridley Company can do all of that as they increase the square footage, improve your quality of living, and raise the value of your property.
The following featured projects showcase ranch style home additions that will give you some ideas on how you can transform your cozy rambler into a modern multi-story structure that will better serve your family’s needs.
Architectural Interest Adds Newage Elegance To Ranch Style Home
The sky is the limit when it comes to adding more square footage to your ranch style home and this captivating home proves that. The renovation focused on opening the interiors to receive more natural light by lifting the ceilings, raising the plates, and redesigning the roof line to accommodate modern transom windows. With an emphasis on clean architectural lines and balance, the exterior was revamped with a fresh, almost “moody” layer of Benjamin Moore paint and bold accents along the trim. Lastly, contrasting polished nickel and black finishing touches complete the look to improve this home’s overall curb appeal in a new and vibrant way.

Ranch Home Remodel Converted Into An Open & Airy Oasis
Some home additions are small, whereby others reconfigure the entire floor plan in a way that is significantly more spacious and functional. This open and airy oasis was created by lifting the ceilings and doing both a front and back addition. Larger bathrooms, a master suite, a bigger kitchen, and an updated aesthetic became possible with the redesign. The full remodel features a coffered ceiling to give a sense of architectural intrigue, updated trim with clean line profiles, larger windows to provide more natural light, and a practical layout with more seating options to better accommodate entertaining guests. Elegant pendant lighting was installed above a multi-functional island to tastefully separate the kitchen from the great room, and the same bright white and neutral color themes were applied to both areas in an effort to create a more synergistic look.

Tranquil Master Bathroom Remodel That Allows for Aging-In-Place
This master bathroom was completely gutted, enlarged, and redesigned to create a spa-like experience that will gracefully accommodate aging-in-place. Every detail from an improved layout to the curbless shower and grab bar beside the modern freestanding soaking tub were installed to encourage easy transitions from one space to the next. The textured walls and glass provide visual interest, whereby the soft, natural tones create an eloquent color palette that ensures this design will be relevant for years to come. As a private space for at-home escapes, it was important to ensure this master bathroom suite offers circulation, functionality, and the essence of pure tranquility.
