Remodeling a home is one of the more exciting endeavors you can undertake as an owner. This type of project can also be very rewarding not just aesthetically, but financially too. When deciding to remodel a home, one of the first decisions to make should be whether your situation is right for home additions. Remodeling your home by adding a new bedroom, sunroom, or bathroom can be the best investment you can make in your residence.
Here are a few ideas to consider when making your decision:
- When adding on to the exterior of your home, consider using a different material. This idea is especially convenient when adding on to the rear of your home. Rather than trying to match the existing brick or wood, using a different material can make for a good contrast and work for adding on whatever type of room you decide upon.
- Rather than have your addition be one large “block,” consider breaking it into pieces. A large addition can often overwhelm the existing structure, so break it into relating “pieces,” such as a multi-gabled roof.
- When deciding on the addition, it might be wise to go bold. If adding a sunroom, why not make it a centerpiece of your home—choosing a modern, sleek design with lots of glass, natural lighting, and open space. Your addition should be the crown jewel of your home.
- In keeping with the “go bold” theme, if you have the space on your property, try stretching out your addition. The advantage of going long with your addition is to make what could be simply a big addition a massive one. Having this type of addition to your home can add not only to your home’s value, but also open up the living space and give you and your family more options.
