If you are considering building an addition to your home, a master bedroom might be on your list of options. It has definitely become a popular addition to homes and is a great way to create additional space, customized specifically for you.
At Ascension General Contractors, we are here to help you with some things to consider when making a plan for adding a master bedroom to your home.
Determine the Location
Finding the location of your addition is probably the primary concern when starting to plan your renovation. This is also the most complex part of the process. Think about your wants and needs specifically when choosing where to build the addition, such as which direction you want the room to face, or if you have a two-story home, what floor would be best to make it most convenient for you.
Talk with a Design Firm
It’s important to discuss any ideas for an addition with a design firm before your plans are drawn up. The firm will be able to tell you about any zoning regulations, restrictions, or any HOA considerations, and can help you with any technical factors for your planning and completing your project.
Consider Specific Elements
There are some elements that you should think about when adding on, such as privacy, storage, exits and entries, the setting of your home, furnishings, etc. All of these things can help ensure you build the perfect plan around adding to your home and it suits your needs specifically.
Think About Exterior & Interior Features
An addition should blend in with the rest of your home. Make sure that the shingles, siding, exterior trim, doors, and windows that will be used all match the rest of your home. Additionally, for the interior, make a list of all the things you want to include and mark things that are essential and those that are optional. This will help you determine what’s most important to you and make sure those items are included in the plan.
There is a lot to think about when you’re adding a master bedroom to your home, but planning now will pay off in the long run when the project is complete and you see the final result.
