Extending Your Home In The Right Direction

Thinking about adding to your home? Home extensions are a great way to give you and your family a little more space while adding additional value onto your home. It can also be a fun project to take on, even as a DIY job if you have the skill to handle it. For instance, a lot of people decide to build out into their backyard because this allows them to complete a home renovation, without buying up any additional land. At this point, you’re probably wondering what type of extension to build onto your home. We’ve got some of the best options as well as some advice on how to move forward with a project like this.

Loft Or Attic Conversion


On average, this is going to cost you ten thousand which we think you’ll agree is quite expensive. This will depend on the design of your attic. Some have very high roofs and if that’s the case part of the extension work has already essentially been completed for you. Rather than changing the roof all you need to do is add some insulation and work on the inside of the home. If you have an attic with a ceiling high enough to stand up with, it really is in your best interest to complete an attic conversion. Otherwise, it’s just a waste of a fantastic opportunity. Ten thousand might seem like a large cost, and it is, however, you can cover it with a homeowner personal loan. Homeowner personal loans allow you to borrow the money you need and pay for an extension like this. Once you have built the extension, you can pay off the money as you go along. With a loft or attic conversion, you can create an awesome game room or a stunning place for guests to stay. The choice is yours.

Sun Rooms And Conservatory


Looking over the fence, you might have noticed that your annoying neighbor already has a stunning sunroom in their backyard. It probably makes you green with envy, so perhaps you should think about building one yourself. Why not? It might seem like a great idea to build a glass roof as part of your sunroom. That way you get the full power of the sun. However, this will also make the room unusable in the winter and often far too hot in the summer.

Instead, you need to think about building a sunroom with a tiled roof. Don’t worry, it will still heat up nicely if you have windows all around the sides. But it will also be quite a pleasant room to sit in and watch the snow fall.

Room Extensions


Alternatively, you could consider extending a room inside your home, perhaps pushing out the front room a little more. This can be a great way to make your home appear more grand if you’re willing to give up a little garden space. With an extension like this, you will be looking at a few thousand at least depending on the extent of building work.

We hope this helps you choose the right new extension for your home.
