A good room addition shouldn’t look like a room addition. Making it look like it has always been part of the original structure, while still making it look new, takes a good deal of planning. As your local room addition remodeler, Eren Design and Remodel, we share some tips on how to make your room additions look seamless.
TIP: Don’t Rush the Project
Room additions are hardly emergency installations. Take the time to plan every aspect of the room addition, from the design plans to choosing the right remodeler. There may be some push and pull with the design depending on factors such as code requirements and material availability, but a good contractor should be able to comply with codes and find alternative materials while still keeping close to the original plan. What’s important is making sure the room addition is done right, something that can’t be accomplished by rushing.
TIP: Consider the Existing Structure
Whether you’re planning an interior remodel such as a kitchen remodeler or an exterior guest house, the existing structure should always be considered. During planning, take note of elements such as the architectural style, materials and color palette. Attention to small details can make a big difference. Details such as trim, crown molding and door and window hardware can help unify the room addition with the existing structure.
TIP: Choose the Right Contractor
As in the planning stage, it’s also important to take your time when choosing a contractor. Setting up and attending appointments and checking for licenses, insurance and warranties can take a lot of your time and resources, but as your room addition is a big investment, it will be worth the effort in the end. Don’t make the mistake of using the quoted cost of the remodel as your sole criteria for choosing your contractor. A good contractor who may have a higher quoted price is always preferable to a cheap, mediocre contractor who makes too many mistakes. The cost of addressing their errors can inflate the overall project cost so that it ends up costing you even more than the contractor with the higher quote would have.
