Consider Zoning and Building Codes Before Remodeling
When planning to add an addition to your Bethesda, Maryland home, it is important to verify the specifics of the zoning restrictions regarding rear yard, side yard and front yard setbacks with the Montgomery Country zoning office. If your home is located in a historic district (and many in this area are), get familiar with the local requirements. We also recommend asking your design/build firm to prepare proper permit drawings and obtain a building permit for any remodeling work. Following building code regulations and obtaining a building permit protects you from potential fines. In the unlikely event there is an accident resulting in an insurance claim, building permits and proper protocol means the insurance company is less likely to question payment.
Consider the Architectural Style of Your Bethesda Area Home
If you own or have recently purchased a home and are considering a home remodeling project, it is important that your design team be familiar with the variety of architectural styles found in Montgomery Country. When you use an architect or design-build firm who is sensitive to the subtle differences in architectural style and details, the final project will respect your home’s integrity, thus enhancing its value for years to come.
We have extensive experience working with Bethesda-area homeowners to ensure that any home remodeling project uses window and door styles consistent with the original style of the home. In addition, our team understands the importance of pointing out current “hot” architectural trends that could look dated in five years. Check out the “Historic Styles” section of our website to learn more about the historic style of your Bethesda home.
Throughout the years of remodeling homes, the Wentworth team has come to realize that design trends are best restricted to furniture, carpet, paint and other items that can be easily changed in the future. In the case of kitchen remodeling and bathroom remodeling, which usually happen only every 15 to 20 years, there is more room for being adventurous. An experienced design team familiar with architectural styles, trends and the surrounding neighborhoods can help you navigate through these types of design choices, from traditional to modern and everything in between!
The Advantage of Choosing Remodelers Familiar with Your Neighborhood
Whether it’s a renovation project or addition, homeowners in Bethesda come to us with many different home remodeling projects. Our team not only has experience working with a wide-range of homes in the Bethesda area, but also can perfectly balance the personal needs of the homeowner and the specificities of each home remodeling project.
Bethesda, MD Home Remodeling Project Spotlight
When the owners of a 1960s home in the Carderock Springs neighborhood approached Wentworth with their frustrations about an outdated kitchen that did not meet their needs functionally or aesthetically, we came up with a design to open up and modernize the space.
As the homeowners weren’t fond of the way the kitchen was enclosed on all sides by walls, we created a more open space and provided additional room for a new kitchen island. The new kitchen and open floor plan fit seamlessly into the existing home’s style and reflects many of the interiors of homes in the surrounding Bethesda neighborhood.
