Blending styles can be done very successfully.
Tastes vary and almost anything can be made to work, but we recommend that unless you are doing a complete makeover, look at existing characteristics that you like and build upon them. Make your addition blend in with the existing architecture, your deck flow with the contours of the land or your new windows accentuate the age and style of your home.
What works on one house may not necessarily work on another. You may love your neighbour’s addition... but does it complement the character of your house? Paying attention to size, shape, roof lines and building materials will help make your new addition appear to be part of the original structure.
Don't be afraid to try something new! Blending the new and the old offers an opportunity to really make a statement.
