It is essential to clearly define your goals and objectives for your home extension. Consider what you want to achieve with the additional space you are creating. Is it to create more living space? An additional bedroom? Enhancing the overall functionality of your home? Answering these questions will help guide you with the design and layout of your project.

Next, you should consider the practicality of the extension. This can include the space available for the extension on the property, local building regulations and zoning restrictions and potential impact on neighbouring properties.

It is imperative to work with an architect or designer to create a plan that meets all the necessary requirements to avoid issues or delays in the future.

One of the most important factors to consider: budget. This is a crucial aspect to consider when it comes to your extension. It is also important to consider all items that will contribute to the budget which includes expenses such as permits, design fees and furnishings.

Think about the long term-implications of this extension on the resale value of the property. It's important to choose a design functional to your current needs but will also remain attractive to future buyers.

Finally, communication and collaboration with your chosen contractor is going to be key to the success of your project. Ensure to clearly communicate your expectations, timelines, budget constraints, and stay involved in the decision-making process throughout the construction phase.
