Building a home addition saves you from the hassle and stress of moving into a new house if you need more living space. Among the most common additions are kitchens, mudrooms, family rooms, second-floor additions and bathrooms.
Here are questions to ask yourself before starting with this project from a trusted bath remodeling expert.
What Kind of Space Do You Need?
Make a list of your ideas for the project. For instance, you’re adding a new sunroom, write down how much space you want to add and how it will be used. Will you use it for dining or entertaining guests? What kind of appliances would you need for the room?
Does It Match With Your Home?
You need to make sure that your addition matches the existing structure of your home. It can be difficult to match windows, siding and siding and the rooflines may require modifications for the new space. You should also consider your neighborhood’s standards on footage and interior and exterior finishes. At Bella Kitchen & Design, we can help you ensure that your new addition complements with the rest of your home. Whether you’re planning a kitchen remodeling project or adding new spaces to your home, we’re here for you.
Is Your Project Planned Enough?
Before starting with your project, consult your local planning department to make sure your building plans comply with city or county zoning requirements. Some homes may be restricted by height, distance from property lines and the amount of land that can be covered with hand surfaces.
Consider asking assistance from experts regarding plumbing, switch placement, ventilation and structural issues affecting the functionality of your addition. You also need to think about structurally combining the old and new parts of your home.
During your renovation, see if other areas of your home need to be worked on. Don’t forget to check if your existing heating and cooling system can handle the added load from the addition.
