Types of House Extension

If your home needs a revamp and you really don’t want to move house then perhaps you’re starting to consider a house extension. House extensions provide new ways of increasing the living space in your home without the expense of moving house.

There are different types of house extension, and in this post we’re going to explore a few of them, so you’ll have a better idea of what’s best for your property.

Rear House Extension

If you’re looking for kitchen space, then this type of extension could be perfect for you. It extends through to the back and it can also give additional space for the dining area. The extension can lead nicely to your garden or patio, giving it a really beautifully spacious feel.

Wrap Around House Extension

A wrap around extension simply consists of combining side and rear parts of the house to create extra space, it’s similar to the rear, except it takes in more of the house. You can add some extra living space with a kitchen and dining area so you can entertain guests.

Side Return House Extension

A side return extension cleverly brings your property into a drive way or an alley way at the side of your house. It gives some really good interior space, not perhaps as large as a wraparound or a rear extension, but valued extra room all the same. If you’re looking to create something open plan, then it’s ideal.

Roof House Extension

This type of roof extension must complement the existing main roof and usually comes with a dormer window, it’s a great idea if you’re looking for an extra bedroom, but make sure it doesn’t dominate the original house in any way.

Double Storey House Extensions

This will really give you some great space with room downstairs, and upstairs too with an extra bedroom.

Garage House Extension

Garage extensions are extremely popular. Garages that come with a property are often a waste of time and could easily be put to better use as well as adding value to your home.

It does need some careful consideration though, but a new bedroom or the creation of another family room could be just what you need. This is something that should be discussed with a reputable builder first before going ahead.
