Frequently Asked Questions

What should I know before adding an addition to my house?

Before adding a home or room addition to your house, you should make sure that you have done a thorough inspection of your property and be clear about your goals:

  • Is your plan to continue living in that space for years or decades to come, or are you planning to sell your property in the foreseeable future?
  • Decide how much you’re ready to spend on it.
  • Find out what scope of work to expect. Would it include a lot of electrical work or plumbing repairs? Would you have some remodeling work done to the rest of the house as well?

Finally, you should know who to ask for help. Fortunately, there’s a reliable local company serving Kensington and other communities in the area. Here at  Lars Architecture, we’ll be happy to give you a detailed account of all the key aspects of your project in the making.

Can I draw my own home addition plans?

Drawing plans and making a blueprint is definitely one of the most exciting parts of any home addition project. However, despite the initial rush of overwhelming excitement, if you lack expertise, you’ll likely be overwhelmed by the sheer number of technical details. For this reason, even the most skilled engineers use very precise equipment to ensure nothing slips through the cracks.

Of course, you can make a sketch of your general idea, or even a mood board with a list of preferences, so that you can discuss it closely with your contractor. A professional team of interior designers and architects will then dive deep into your plans and after a careful in-house inspection present you with a detailed project and a 3D-design of your future space.

Will a room addition add value to my home?

Yes, it will. If carried out properly, a room addition improves the overall functionality and can boost the attractiveness and curb appeal of your home. Without any doubt, all improvement projects can increase the value of your home, although your ROI will depend on various factors and circumstances.

However, do consider several factors: are you expanding your floorplan or developing new rooms from existing footage? Will your room addition reduce the maintenance of your household? To ensure that you don’t end up with cramped or unused spaces, consult a professional designer or architect in Kensington.

What adds more value: bedroom or bathroom addition?

Both improvements can add some value to your home, if you have achieved a streamlined look that passes with the rest of the household. If you’re planning to increase the resale value, realtors usually advise that you add another bathroom. For instance, you can choose to add an ensuite bathroom that’ll be a part of your master bedroom suite. Either way, you can rely on Lars Architecture to be completely sure that the result of your home addition ticks all boxes: functionality, comfort and high listing price.

How can I hire contractors for kitchen, suit, or some other type of room addition in Kensington?

Fortunately, the whole process is way easier than one might think. Here at Lars Architecture we’ll be happy to draft a thorough plan and manage your room addition project from A to Z.
