When your home isn’t able to fit the needs of your family, what would you do? Many of us choose to move, but when your home is particularly special to you or you love the place you live, instead of moving your belongings, try instead moving the outline of your home’s footprint with an addition! If you are thinking about adding an addition to your home, there are a few things you need to know that can help the process go smoother.
- You need to communicate with your contractor. Having a contractor who does good work but doesn’t communicate well will not work in your favor when completing an addition. If your contractor does a great job building something you don’t want, you still end up with a product you don’t want. Make sure you and your contractor are always on the same page with the purpose and design of your addition.
- Some additions are better than others. If you ever plan to sell your home, then concentrating on additions that will bring the most value will be your best bet. These are usually expansions of the main living space, kitchen areas or bathrooms.
- The best additions aren’t obvious ones. We have all walked through a home where there is a clear definition of where the original home ends and the new addition begins. Making your addition one that blends seamlessly with the original space is always the one that will give you the best results.
