When you’re considering a home remodel, it’s okay to think outside of your existing square footage. Adding another room is a popular service within the building industry, and for good reason! Extending your home opens up a whole range of new possibilities in terms of layout and functionality, allowing you to more fully realize your vision of what your home should look like.

To help you get started on your new addition, we’ve compiled a few useful tips.

Choosing the Addition

Remodeling a home is something that homeowners can plan for years, whether they’re waiting for the kids to go off to college or simply can’t decide what addition to put in. There’s a huge range of possibilities when it comes to room additions, and you can cover anything from children’s playrooms to home offices.

Here are a few ideas to kick-start your imagination:

  • Grandmaster bedrooms
  • Spa-like master bathrooms
  • Second-story additions
  • Family rooms, playrooms, a child’s room
  • Home offices
  • Garage and workspace extensions

Limiting Factors

In reality, not every home can support every kind of room addition. You’ll likely be limited by the size of your lot, your budget, and any restrictions in your area. To ensure that your addition is as seamless as possible, use these tips:

  • Stay true to the original style of your home to keep the addition authentic
  • Find out local restrictions before planning your addition
  • Leave room for your backyard
  • Set up a temporary living space so that you have use of a kitchen and bathroom during the construction process

View Examples

When hiring a construction company, you’ll want to check out their previous work to see if they are the right fit for you. Look at their previous projects, view the before and after pictures, and interview the company if needed. You may just find that the company’s portfolio helps you to think about your own space in new and exciting ways!
