For some people, moving to a larger property may not be an option. Maybe you love your home and don’t want to move, but if a growing family means and working from home has you craving a little more space, then an extension may be the best way to go.
If there is a passage down the side of your property that is rarely used, then aside extension could be ideal. Even such a small extension can add valuable space to the home, and it would not usually require planning permission.
A rear extension will allow you to extend onto therear of your home. This is usually a popular choice for homeowners wanting an extended kitchen and diner with increased light and views onto the garden.
A wrap-around extension is a combination of the two above styles, increasing the size of your home to the side and the rear, which is ideal for creating a spacious open plan interior design. This would be perfect for a kitchen/dining room.
Garageor other Outbuilding Extension
Extending your living space with a garage or other outbuildings such as a storage orroom, swimming pool or kennels is a great way to add space to your home. It may lead to expanding the footprint of your property and thus will require planning permission.
There is also the option to add extensions on to existing garages or outbuildings, with double story garage extensions becoming more and more popular.
