With the new year right around the corner, people are busy making resolutions. For some homeowners, 2018 will be the perfect year to get on with those home improvements they always planned. So if you are planning a new home extension for 2018, here at David Haworth Design, we have some tips to help you make it successful.
What style of extension do you want?
When it comes to styling your new home extension, there are a huge range of choices and decisions that can influence the final outcome and overall finish of your extension. These choices will include:
The building materials- while stone and limestone blocks can look perfect on a period property, you might want to choose something more contemporary. Opting for thermally effective glass can be a stunning option for contemporary homes.
The windows- high performance glass and aluminium make for the perfect contemporary style, but what about a grid or lattice style for a period property? Although it might not seem important, the window choices you make will influence the overall appeal of your new extension.
The shape of your new extension- many homeowners opt for a simple square or rectangular extension, but if you have the space, and your extension is on the ground floor, why not choose a P or L shape? This will provide more space, and be more visually interesting. Whichever layout you choose, make sure it fits with the existing property, or it may look out of place.
The roofing material- if you want your new extension to blend into your home, you might want to consider using a similar roofing material. You also might want to consider the shape of the roof to add more character.
