House Extensions and Designs

Upgrade Your Property with House Extensions and Designs

As time passes, the number of people living in a house naturally increases, which is where house extensions and designs become a necessity. People have more children who then get older and require more space for themselves.

The Importance of Modern House Extension

The decision to have a property extended comes around when space is at a premium. A growing family with more children needing their own space is a prime example. Other times, homeowners are bored with their current house and need to refresh it. 

  • Adding value to your property. Any alterations done on your house will increase its value when it’s time to sell. It’s a sure-fire way to having your investment and a little more returned to you. Since it’s an asset, investing money and time into it will always grow. 
  • In today’s property market, it’s difficult to afford your dream home. Apart from that, you could be living in a city and neighbourhood that you love. The idea to extend your current space provides you with the fresh look you’re seeking and the comfort of your city. 
  • Harmony in the family. Studies suggest that families that have more space available fight and argue less. Especially in a home where teenagers are living, they require their own little bubble where they can retreat. 

Extensions aren’t only aesthetically pleasing; they are practical. Everyone loves extra space to cook in, or a man cave or even an additional bathroom to avoid those teenage arguments. 

Common Mistakes People Make Regarding Modern Extensions on Old Houses

Since most people that decide to extend their property are doing it for the first time, there are mistakes that they make. 

  • Having an unrealistic schedule. Modern extensions can take time, especially if it’s a big project. In most cases, the family is occupying the property with the builders working around them; it’s highly likely to take longer. Instead of rushing the process to finish the work and ending up with mistakes everywhere, allow the builders to take their time and get the extension correct. 
  • Failing to research the building company. Having your house extended comes with a decent amount of stress and pressure. Always investigate the company you’re hiring to complete your job and avoid having your project turn into a series of arguments between you and the project manager. Ask other clients who have used a building company about their experiences before confirming to hire them. 
  • Getting the windows wrong. The modern extension will include new windows. However, the mistake people make is that they don’t match those with the older windows, and it results in an unsightly mismatch. Always go for the exact styling of your old windows, so they are uniform. 

These are only some of the mistakes people make when they decide to extend their property. It is avoidable by hiring builders that are reliable and considerate about what you want.
