3 Tips For a Successful Home Addition Remodel
A home addition remodel can be exciting. You’re changing the home that you see every day, improving it and adding more space that you can use. It can even boost your home value by adding square footage to your home. But any remodeling project can also be an intense time, even with a professional remodeling company’s help. Want to make sure your home addition remodel goes smoothly? Here are a few tips to ensure success:
Figure Out the Why
Before you begin the project, you’ll want to understand why you’re doing it. Do you want to add entertainment space to your home? Add an extra bedroom for your growing family? Or are you hoping to add value to your home by increasing the square footage? Your reason for the home addition will impact the choices you make. For instance, if your goal is to add value, you should focus on square footage and energy efficient features that will add value to your home. If your goal is to make room for more family members, you’ll have to consider the proximity of the new room to the rest of the rooms in the house.
This will help you to visualize what you want from your home addition. Start by deciding why you want this space and creating a wish list. You can then share that with your contractor to determine what’s feasible and how to accomplish it.
It’s best to have a home addition remodel done when there will be fewer people in the house. You don’t want to have the family over for Thanksgiving dinner while a loud remodeling project is happening. So make sure to schedule during a time when you’ll be fairly flexible. You might also consider visiting relatives for the holidays instead of people coming to you. This will free up your home, making that time of year all the better for remodeling.
Look At the Outside and In
When you consider your space for your upcoming remodel, don’t just look at the interior of the home. This can help you to figure out where you want the home addition to be placed, but your exterior should also be considered. Do you have a flowerbed directly outside of where you’d like to place the home addition? If so, is it possible to move it or to move your home addition? What would your home addition face, especially if you plan to add windows? If you have limited outdoor space, consider building up instead of out. Ask your contractor for advice on the best place to add this home addition.
