In designing your home remodeling project, it is important to make the new space fit with the rest of the house. An addition, for example, will need to have the same or complementary exterior walls as the rest of the existing house. Finishing an attic into a bedroom with dormer windows should incorporate the appropriate dormer style for your home. A good addition will give the appearance of always being part of the house. Providing access to an attic conversion will need to be accomplished with a stairway that fits the architectural style of the house. Windows should be consistent with other windows in the existing home. A double-portal front door may not look good with some architectural styles. A home in a subdivision of ranch-style homes might accept an addition in the back more readily than a second story addition. An appropriate design will bring a greater return on the investment you are making when you are ready to sell your home.
