Why have a house extension?
There are many reasons and benefits of extending your home.
Firstly, you won’t have to go through the hassle (and often heartache) of packing everything up into boxes. We know that moving home is one of the most stressful things we can do in our lifetime so avoiding it seems like a good idea.
Secondly, staying in your home is often preferred as you know the area, know your neighbours and generally have a connection with where you live. So, adding extra space to your existing house makes sense.
For those that choose to extend their home, it could be because your family is growing. With additional space, possibly for a new kitchen or even added bedrooms, you can breathe new life into a tired house.
Working from home?
With recent changes to our working environments, many people have enjoyed working from home, but our homes may not be ready for it. Adding on an extension to free up a small bedroom or box room, can often provide the perfect space for a home office. With the addition of smart home devices, you can be connected all across the house within minutes and still be part of the family hub, just in your nice and shiny office!
Adding value to your property?
For those that do want to embark on a new adventure then selling your home could be the key. Maybe you’re looking to downsize as your children have flown the nest. Or you could be looking for a retirement option to help free up some much needed cash. With additional space in your home, it will be so much more appealing to prospective buyers and we hear quite frequently that homeowners are adding extensions purely for the resale value of their homes.
