Extensions are a becoming more popular in the recent economic downturn as people seek to improve their current homes as opposed to spending more money buying a new, larger home. The expense of moving house can run into thousands of pounds before the house is even bought so it is unsurprising that extensions are seen as a cheaper alternative. And if you have the space, extensions really can offer a very large and usable additional area to your home. They can even offer the flexibility to completely rearrange the layout of your Wimbledon home.
Extensions can offer a variety of bonus rooms. Two storey extensions create additional bedroom space as well as living space on the ground floor. The ground floor space can be used for a huge variety of uses such as office space, larger kitchens, creating a kitchen diner, creating a luxurious games and media room, offering a garden room, a snug – the list really is endless.
The cost of extensions depends upon the kind of extension you are looking at creating at your Wimbledon home. Side return extensions are one of the least expensive options but these do not offer huge amounts of extra space. This said, they are usually built on terraced homes so there is often little space around the house which can be used for an extension.
The benefits which can be received from an extension are a better quality of life, room to expand and, of course, the added value you will be giving your home so if you do ever come to sell your home, you can reap the rewards.
