Planning for your Home Extension
If you want to improve your home and gain more space, an extension is the best way to do it. Before you rush into it, here are some of the things to consider to make sure that you get an extension that is going to improve your lifestyle as well as the value of the property…
Think about the areas that you need more space in – To make sure that you are getting the most from your extension, think of where you need the extra space. If you have a need for a larger kitchen, then think about how this can be achieved, or would more living space be more important to you? If you know someone in your area with a similar style house who has extended, it is worth having a look at how they have done it for inspiration.
Plan your Budget – An extension costs money, so before you begin you need to work out what you can afford, so that you don’t end up with a half-built extension where you have run out of money to complete the project!
