How to Turn your House Extension Ideas into Reality

07.07.14

People have different reasons for needing more space in their homes, and for deciding to build an extension. Some are desperate for a second bath or shower room and downstairs toilet. Most houses nowadays are built with a downstairs cloakroom, but that wasn’t always the case. Other people have a sick or elderly member of the family who needs a bedroom and facilities at ground level.  

Busy parents looking for some peace away from noisy children hanker for their own space to be a haven just for them. Or they might decide to make a playroom for the kids, where they can store toys and enjoy them to their hearts’ content. 

The Most Popular House Extension Ideas 

A good percentage of house extension ideas include a large kitchen/diner. Couples want to entertain their friends in a cleverly designed space that is comfortable for everyone, and means that they can all be together even when food is being prepared. Families need the same idea so that the cook can see what the children are up to, help with homework, be involved in their projects and observe their behaviour and that of visiting friends.  

Whatever the reason for your home extension ambitions, the addition can also be multi-purpose. When your house extension ideas are just for the ground floor, you could also restructure existing rooms and find there is plenty of space for a cloakroom off the hall or a small study that you couldn’t fit in before. If you decide on a double storey extension, there is any number of house extension ideas you can mull over. 

Comprehensive Building Services 

Some house extension ideas require planning permission. Different local authorities have different rules about this. When you commission a specialist building company to take on your project, you won’t have to worry about this. The services of the builders will cover keeping up to speed about local regulations and advising and helping you to comply.  

Whether or not you need to get planning permission, it’s advisable to have plans from a specialist architect, which should also be arranged by your builders. The architect will take your house extension ideas and develop a design to incorporate them and turn all your dreams into reality. Only once you sign off on this should the builders begin the work.
