Space can be limited in the average UK home. Whether it’s down to a growing family, your interior aspirations or simply catering for your tastes, a bigger house or property is the goal for many homeowners. But while moving into a pre-existing, larger property is a solution for some, for others leaving your first home – or ‘forever house’ – can be a challenge. That’s where extensions come in, providing an ideal way to expand your space while keeping all your comforts close to home.
Why might you want to choose an extension over a new property? Are home extensions worth it? Read on to find out:
Why Extensions Are The Ideal Way To Expand Your Household
Moving is widely considered one of the most stressful things you can do, after marriage and children, of course. So why go to all the hassle of finding somewhere new to live when you love where you are already? Extensions allow you to add to existing space, meaning you’re getting something completely bespoke that you designed, for you to enjoy. To improve your quality of life, provide extra playroom or simply space to breathe, an extension is an ideal solution.
Holding dinner parties, having guests over or even adding an extra member to your growing family suddenly becomes far more achievable with the addition of a high-quality, on-point extension. While a considerable garden is fantastic for the three weeks of summer the UK inevitably gets, 80% of the year your outdoor space is likely wasted. Exchanging the exterior for an interior is a fantastic way to make more of what you already have, and even add extra value to your property in the process.
Is There A Cash Benefit To Building An Extension?
There are more monetary benefits to investing in an extension than you might think. If you’re wondering how much value an extension adds to your house, the answer could be in the thousands – especially when it comes to quality, functional extensions that add to the space and atmosphere of your home as a whole. But beyond that added value to your house price, an extension can be far cheaper and much less hassle than the costs upon costs of moving to a new property – saving you pennies while allowing you to gain the much-needed space you’re looking for.
