Add more space, improve your property and add value to your home with an extension.
Selling up and moving to a larger home in a new area is usually your first thought when running out of space, but it can also be a daunting experience. When you move house, you never know what you will get, will your new neighbours be as nice as your current neighbours. Moving home would also attract great costs, running into the tens of thousands. If you are happy where you live now, extending your home suddenly becomes a safe alternative.
An extension can radically improve a property. Bigger, better space and extra rooms can add value, and make a house more attractive to buyers.
The room that usually benefits the most from enlarging is the kitchen. Adding a kitchen/diner creates the kitchen space most people want and provides a more usable area for the family. Kitchen extensions also provide the opportunity to extend upwards – an additional bedroom can be built on top at the same time.
An extension or addition to your house is considered to be permitted development, not requiring an application for planning permission, provided certain limits and conditions are met.
