Are you outgrowing your home? - How an extension can add value to your property whilst also giving space for the little ones to play, learn, and unwind. 

Are you finding that you need more living space in your home? This blog looks into how expanding your living space gives you more room to relax and adds to the value of your property. 

Outgrowing our living space can creep up on us, but it happens to us all. It could be that you work from home and need a larger office space, or it could be to make room for a new family member. Whatever your reason is, the team here at South East Builders will have a space saving solution for your requirements. 

 

Add space and value to your home 

A loft conversion is a highly cost-effective space-saving solution, especially if being used as an extra bedroom. According to the Nationwide Building Society, if you plan to add a bedroom to your 2-bedroom house, turning it into a 3-bedroom house, it can add up to 12% to the potential asking price. 

Propertypriceadvice.co.uk state that adding a side-return extension to your kitchen can potentially add 15% to the value of the property. These extensions are narrow alleyways that run adjacent to the kitchen. We have found this particular type of extension to be very popular for owners of Victorian terraced houses. 

 

Planning permission  

Before any of the designing can happen, you are going to need to check with your local planning office to see if your property requires permission in order to have an extension added. This might sound a little daunting but don’t worry, here at South East Builders and Decorators offer a comprehensive service that includes planning, architectural and structural services.
