How to Design the Perfect Home Addition

So you’re thinking about adding an addition to your home. Maybe your family is starting to grow, or maybe you have a family member that is moving in. Regardless of your reason for needing some more space in your home, there are several decisions and considerations you need to make when planning for a new addition. Carbide Construction specializes in modular home additions in Arlington, Alexandria and the surrounding areas, and we have a few suggestions on what you should keep in mind when thinking about home additions.

Identify a Focus

You probably already know why you are looking into home additions. But give some more thought to the problems you want your new home addition to solve. You need more room in your home, but what do you plan to use that extra space for? Identifying your family’s needs can help during the beginning stages of the design process.

You should also take some time to daydream. Start imagining other home additions you have seen, and start imagining what you’d want yours to look like when the project is completed. Get inspiration from magazines, TV shows or the Internet.

Choose a Few Splurges and Budget Accordingly

Unless you are working with an unlimited budget, you are going to want to pick and choose what you can splurge on and what you should try to save on. For example, if you are looking into home additions that include a master suite, then you might want a large and luxurious bathroom. That is something to keep in mind when you’re in the actual design phase of your project. Crunch some numbers and start getting an idea of what your budget is.
