If you own a house and are finding yourself struggling for room, you may be considering moving house. Finding somewhere bigger is definitely one solution, but another great way to increase your space at home without the hassle of moving house is to build an extension. An extension also adds value to your home, and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Done well, an extension can give you the room you require with much less stress and hassle than moving house brings, and at a much lower cost too.
When it comes to extending your home, planning is key. You don’t want to end up with an expensive and lengthy extension project, so think about what you want from your extension. Also consider costs of the materials and what will be going in it, depending on which part of your home you are extending. Consider fixtures like lighting and aluminium radiators.
If it is extra storage space that you need, you may not even need to extend your home a great deal. Looking at your existing rooms and how they are laid out, you may be able to add extra storage space in.
A kitchen is the centre of the home and when it comes to selling your home, a large and well laid out kitchen can add a lot of value. It is also hugely beneficial to creating more living space for an increasing family!
An additional bathroom is also a great way to add value to your home without a huge extension. It could also help with the morning rush; you won’t have the whole household queuing to use one bathroom!
