Is your home feeling cramped? Do you need more space to spread out? If so, then a home addition is the perfect solution. However, before starting a project of this size, there are several factors to consider.
Choosing the Perfect Design
A popular approach to a home addition is seamlessly blending the new with the old. Making stylistic choices, such as keeping the same molding, flooring, and wall color, will allow for even flow and make for one, large, cohesive room. However, if you don’t want an exact match, and aren’t looking for a total remodel, try to have your home addition complement the preexisting space. This approach will add interest and character.
Check With Local Planning and Zoning Rules
Before diving into your new addition, check local planning and zoning laws. With every room addition, you want to be sure that you meet all of the requirements, such as setback and height limitations. Acquiring planning permission early on is always helpful, as it will not only save time and money, but also prevent any holds or complications during your project.
Moving Out or Staying in the Construction Zone
The scope of your home addition may determine if it’s best to stay in the house or temporarily move out. Plan ahead and decide if leaving your home for the duration of the project is necessary. This can be an added inconvenience and expense.
