If you are considering adding on to your home or simply remodeling the space to make it updated or more aesthetically pleasing, you know how much planning will go into the project. You will need to consider some of your biggest priorities, while working with your budget and a contractor that you trust. Here are some tips on how to design a space that is not just luxurious, but comfortable and usable.
#1: Think long-term.
Investing in a home addition or remodel is a huge undertaking that can get expensive quickly. So, think long-term and how you can maximize your dollars for the greatest return. Adding new siding and a roof are some of the best things you can do when it comes to the long-term investment in your home. A quality roof will last for decades. Not to mention, fiber cement siding installed by the professionals at Lifetime Windows and Doors means your home has the protection it needs for years to come. It’s also important to plan for resale. If you end up wanting to relocate, think about what potential buyers will appreciate in your home and the updates you’ve made. Design a home that fits your preferences and lifestyle, but keep in mind that it should also still appeal to other buyers in the event you want to sell it.
#2: Think about your budget.
Whether you’re adding on a whole new room to your home or just updating various parts of the exterior, it is important to think through each aspect of your budget. Take your time to figure out what you are determining as a ‘must have’ and what is just ‘nice to have.’ Once you get near the end of your project, it’s better to be within your budget rather than way over it – as this can cause added stress.
#3: Choose the right company.
When you are planning for a large home addition or a project that includes updating your windows, doors or roofing, you will have some research to do. There are unfortunately a lot of companies out there that are dishonest or simply don’t pay attention to their quality of work. Make sure you read online reviews, ask for pictures of completed jobs, and make sure their expertise aligns with what you’re looking for.
