If you're looking to extend your family, but do not feel your current home has a suitable amount of room, it understandably leads to thoughts of moving house. Rather than spending the time, money and effort required to find a new house that suits all of your requirements, it is worth considering another option.
A bedroom extension will give you the space for your family to grow into, without having to leave the house you've made into a home. It will also allow you to avoid the often arduous task of decorating a new house.
Extra Space And Storage
One way the extension can be valuable to you is in the form of a brand-new bedroom. Or, possibly, as a place to store items, should your children share a room. This development will allow you to see great changes throughout the rest of your home, as your living room, kitchen and existing bedrooms will no longer be used to store an abundance of toys, clothes and other items. In turn, these rooms will be used for their original purposes and the new bedroom can also be used as a playroom, giving you back your own space away from noisy toys.
Save On The Costs Of Moving House
A second way that bedroom extensions can be beneficial to your family is through the money you will save by choosing to improve your current house, instead of moving to a new one. You already have a home you love and wish to add to the memories you have made there, so to start again, when such a cost-effective resolution is at hand, could be an uphill struggle.
If the financial side of any project is a concern for you, you should consider the fact that the money you save by building an extension, rather than moving house, could be put towards decorating it. It is also worth remembering that an extension of any kind can certainly add value to your house, should you think about putting it on the market in the future.
You also have to ask yourself if the time you will spend as part of a chain is a worthwhile disruption to you and your family.
Add Your Own Personal Stamp
Finally, you should consider adding an extra bedroom to your home because it is an excellent way for you to put your individual stamp on your house. By designing the extension yourself, you can create a room you know you are going to fall in love with. It also allows you to think about how your needs will change in the coming years. For example, what was originally designed to be a bedroom for young children, for instance, may eventually become a den for teenagers or a spare room. It may also become your own relaxation space. Thinking ahead when designing your new bedroom allows you to plan for the future successfully.
