With the cost of moving house becoming increasingly more expensive, it’s no surprise that homeowners are trying to make the most of the space they already have available. If you’re starting to find your home a bit of a squeeze, there is a solution that means you don’t have to start the arduous process of moving house. Instead, you can use the outside space you have to construct a spacious new extension. Read on for three reasons why you need to add an extension to your home…

1. Extra space

In the wake of lockdowns and the rise of remote working, you might find your home has suddenly become a bit tight for space. With an extension, you have the opportunity to add a wonderful new area to your home. This could function brilliantly as an office, a games room or even a guest room for visitors. It could even double up as a clever additional storage space if you’re running out of room or just want to clean up your home – there are endless possibilities for your new extension.

2. Host events

If you like entertaining, an extension is a great way to step up your parties and give you the chance to enjoy some extra areas which can be themed or used as food rooms, dance rooms and more. You could even turn it into a warm and cosy space that’s perfect for movie nights and girly catchups. If you have teenagers at home, you may even decide to turn one of your new rooms into a den, getting them out from under your feet and allowing them to spend time with their friends in a safe space.

3. Add value

Whether you see yourself selling your home or not, adding value is never a bad idea, and an extension could increase the value of your home as well as increase its usability and functionality for you too, for as long as you live there. It also means you get the benefit of a whole new space to use however you see fit.

Building an extension is one of the best changes you can make in order to add value to your home. It is much more beneficial than removing walls or converting lofts. So, to improve your home, an extension is the way to go.
