There comes a time in which you may need more room in your home. Maybe your family has a new addition to it or maybe you are just tired of living in a cramped space. No matter what your reasoning, extending your Dorset home is a great way to create more space. Now you must think about what kind of extension you want. Here are some tips for choosing the right home extension for you.

Keep continuity

No matter what, you want to make sure that you keep continuity when you build a home extension. You do not want it to look like an extension. You want it to seamlessly blend in with the rest of the home. When guests come over, they will think your home has always been like this. That is the goal here. Innovative tiled roofs are particularly popular with Dorset homeowners that require an extension that feels like an additional room. Full-length glazing panels or Velux rooflights can also be incorporated into their structure to allow plenty of light inside.

Incorporate something new

When you are coming up with ideas for your home extension, you want to make sure that you try incorporating something new. This could range from anything like a new building technique or a new building design. Instead of settling with the status quo, shake things up a bit – from bespoke designed conservatories to extravagant orangeries with modern bi-folding doors adapted to suit any home.

Consider hiring an architect

An architect is going to have the knowledge to give you the best possible options. Their vast knowledge of construction and design makes them the perfect person to turn to when you are seeking a professional opinion about how you should use the space. If you do not want to go that route, you can consider hiring a building company. At Poole Joinery, we have collaborated with a variety of reputable local architects, developers and building companies over the years. So, don’t hesitate to contact us for expert recommendations.
