Springtime is here and we’re ready to spring into action and take on all those home remodeling projects you’ve long been waiting to get your teeth into.

Many of the big spring projects our clients are most looking forward to involve home additions. Building a home addition can bring so much to your home – more space, a little luxury, and room to do what you love. Spring is the perfect time to get started!

If you know a home addition is around the corner for you and are looking for a little design inspiration, read on. Here are some of the top trends you might want to consider when designing an addition for your home.

A Room with a View

If you have the opportunity to do so, build facing a view you love and incorporate floor to ceiling windows to make the most of it. Maybe you’re lucky enough to have a view of Lake Michigan, your own private beach, a stunning cityscape or a beautiful garden of flowers; if so, make the most of it.

Brighten up an addition with beautiful new windows.

Enjoy the Outside from In

A conservatory or sunroom can also help you enjoy your immediate outdoor surroundings. If you’re a keen gardener, building a conservatory or sunroom could be the perfect way to combat winter blues. Consider which direction you’d like your sunroom to face and how your location and choice of materials will effect temperature and usability year round, when deciding on the details of your conservatory or sunroom.

A sunroom is the perfect addition to enjoy the outdoors all year round.

Aim High

High vaulted ceilings and interesting ceiling treatments are popular at the moment. Think beams, patterned ceiling designs and open space above you for a lofty, grand feel. This design trend is perfect for new bedrooms and living spaces, if you’re looking to design for a luxurious feel.

Vaulted ceilings can create the illusion of a bigger space.

Expand Your Space

A new home addition is all about making new space you didn’t have before. Choosing an open plan design, or extending a room, can even more so give that impression of spaciousness. Consider extending a kitchen to create a new living space.

An open floorplan can create cohesiveness within your home.

A Suite of Your Own

Having a master suite in your home is an idea we love! Add luxury and privacy to your home by ensuring you have your own quarters, away from anyone else – include a master bedroom, sitting and dressing area, en-suite master bathroom, walk-in closets and whatever else takes your fancy.

No closet spsace? No problem with a walk-in closet addition.
