Which Extension Is Right for You?

With a surge in demand for home office setups, many people are wondering how they can add extra space to their property without having to go through the stress of moving home. There are many ways to extend existing properties including loft conversions, garage extensions, kitchen extensions, and bathroom extensions.

This post will explore each type of extension and give all the information you need to choose which one is the perfect fit for your home.

Loft conversions

Loft conversions are one of the most space-efficient and aesthetic ways to add both real estate value and extra space to your home. They come in all different forms depending on the shape and style of your property, and completion time can vary from around 2-4 months.

Although loft conversions come at a high price point, the value added to your property will make all the difference. It is estimated that loft conversions add between 10-20% to the value of your home, so the money invested certainly won’t go to waste.

Versatility is also a strong benefit of loft conversions as they can be tailored to meet the needs of your family by including different rooms such as master bedrooms, kid’s bedrooms, home offices, and extra bathrooms.

Loft conversions usually don’t require planning permission unless they exceed certain conditions, such as expanding the roof beyond its current limits.

We’d recommend a loft conversion if you’re looking for a high-budget extension that will add both value and practicality to your home.


Garage extensions

Garage extensions are becoming increasingly popular as people are exploring the possibilities of turning their garage space into home gyms, summer houses or home office spaces.

Extending garages is a cost-effective way to add value to your home, often at a significantly lower price point than loft conversions.

Similar to loft conversions, garage extensions are highly versatile and can accommodate different requirements such as new bedrooms, bathrooms or leisure space. Furthermore, they often don’t require planning permission unless the garage is in a conservation area or separated from the home.

Garage extensions are perfect for those with limited space inside the house and a garage which is rarely used or full of junk.


Bathroom extensions

Bathroom extensions add practical value to any home as they help to reduce bathroom queues in busy weekday mornings. What’s more, in comparison to other extensions the level of disruption around the house is usually minimal, and the budget needed is much lower.

Bathroom extensions not only add practical value, but also aesthetic value as the extra space can enable you to add luxury features such as freestanding baths and walk in showers, making your bathroom the ultimate relaxation area.

We’d recommend bathroom extensions for busy family homes where extra space is needed to relax and unwind after a long day’s work.

Kitchen extensions

Not enough space to cook your favourite meals? Countertops surrounded by constant clutter? Then it may well be time for a kitchen extension.

Kitchen extensions can help you to achieve that dream kitchen/ diner area which will make life so much easier when it comes to cooking and entertaining.

These extensions can be either internal or external depending on the size of your property and availability of garden space, but may require planning permission if extending outside of the house.

Kitchen extensions are perfect for those looking to improve their cooking and entertaining facilities, while simultaneously adding value and kerb appeal to your current property.
