house-with-shaded-yardIn our previous post listing a few of the most popular room additions for homes, we wrote about the “California room.” If you live in Southern California, you may consider every room in your house to be a California room. But this specific kind of addition is for homes looking to get a full Southern California experience with an open-air space that combines the benefits of the indoors and the outdoors.

And just because you already live in California doesn’t mean you can’t make your home even more Californian with a beautiful space like this. We’re going to provide more details about the California room to help you visualize the possibilities. Our team of designers are glad to help you find out more about this and other ideas for room additions in Calabasas, CA and throughout the Los Angeles Area.
