There are many home additions that just don’t fit well with the overall home. Often, people can tell these additional rooms are afterthought designed to provide more space. But there are some things that can be done to address this issue. Many times, it is the details that provide a fluidity from the home into the addition.
One of the details that makes a home addition look like an addition is the flooring. Flooring is one of those visual aspects that establishes a flow from one side of the home to the other. So, incorporating the same flooring in the home remodel addition brings a visual continuity to the home. The flooring often makes the rooms feel less like an addition and more like it was part of the home.
Another detail that is essential for adding continuity is keeping the same trim work throughout the home. This means adding crown moldings if they are in all of the other rooms. It also means keeping the same style of window, door trims and the same type of baseboards. By keeping things the same, people are less likely to notice the difference between the addition and the rest of the house.
Little details can make a huge difference in whether a room is seen as a home addition or as a natural part of the home when it was built. By incorporating the same details in the home addition, you provide a visual continuity that ties the addition into the rest of the home.
