An addition can give your home much-needed space, comfort, and style. One of the most fun parts of putting an addition on your home is the planning and dreaming stage.

The first thing you should do in your planning stage is figure out what issues your addition will address. Is your bedroom too dark and small? Would you like your kitchen to be lighter and larger? During this stage, you need to pinpoint your needs.

Before you go any further, determine your budget. It’s all well and good to decide that you need a larger bedroom, but that master suite complete with double walk-in closets, veranda, and hot tub may be well beyond your means.

Now that you know what you need and have a budget, start planning and dreaming! Look at basic room additions, and decide which will best fit your needs. Will an outside structure address your needs, or will a bump-out be the perfect way to get the space and architectural interest you desire? Are you putting on a whole room, or will a second-story addition solve your problems?

Planning an addition is not only an opportunity to add space to your home, it also allows you to address any layout issues that your home currently has. For example, if there are areas in your home in which the room flow doesn’t work, careful planning of your addition might help you solve this problem at the same time.
