Extensions, Conservatories, And Conversions

There are many reasons why you would want to consider adding more useful living space to your home. You may be expecting a new addition to your family or maybe considering extending your property so that you don’t need to upscale to a larger home. You may simply want to create an additional room that can be used as an office so that you can get on with your work away from the noise of the main house or create a games room that keeps the noise away from you.

Extending a property can prove expensive and disruptive but it will usually offer you the greatest freedom, in terms of how you are able to use that space. You can extend a single floor or both floors of your property and you may be able to extend the width of your home as well as the length of the rooms giving you a serious increase in floor space.

A conservatory may prove to be one of the most useful and simple methods of extending your home. It may even be possible to have a conservatory built that does not require planning permission, although you should always check whether or not this is the case before you start otherwise you could face major problems further down the line.

However, if you have a basement or loft that you get little genuine use from, you may find that it is more beneficial to have this converted rather than enduring the difficulties associated with having an extension built. There will still be some disruption to your daily life but it should be minimised. You can gain what is effectively an entire floor by having a conversion and this means that you can add two or more rooms in a lot of cases.

There are many ways to improve the usefulness of your property. Redecorating may improve the look of your beloved home but it will not provide you with greater space or additional rooms. Conservatories and extensions can add to the existing floor space while conversions literally convert unused space into more beneficial and useful floor space.
