Home additions, when done right, can help boost your home’s functionality and curb appeal. Many people, however, feel intimidated by this home upgrade, especially considering the overall architectural design. They often fear that installing new features can compromise their home’s facade or that the room addition might look out of place.
Marrokal Design and Remodeling, a premier home remodeling contractor in the area, shows you how to seamlessly integrate a new home addition.
Use the same roofing material for your home additions. Deviating from the existing roofing system can make the room look out of place. The challenging part, however, is finding the exact roofing color. Since your roof is exposed to the harsh elements every day, the original color may fade over time, making it more difficult to find the same shade. Consider using other materials if you want to re-roof your entire home.
Wood clapboards and shingles are easier to match than vinyl siding. Matching stucco or brick is challenging, too, but it’s more feasible than vinyl. Your contractor only needs to replicate the finish or find a similar brick color for your home additions.
Windows and Doors
As important design elements, your windows and doors have to complement your home’s overall theme. There’s no hard rule to use the same window or door styles as the existing ones, but it’s important to use the same material. For instance, choose wood windows and doors if your current units are made of this natural material.
Some homes sport unique or antique doorknobs and other hardware to make a bold statement. Visit our Design showroom to look for hardware that may resemble yours or find a whole new look that suits your style.
