So far 2020 has seen us spending an unprecedented amount of time in our homes and gardens. Many of us have been working from home, often for the first time, and far more of our leisure time has been spent at home. This has left many people wishing for more space in their homes.
Now is the ideal time to think about an extension. Rather than move house, an extension can help with the additional space you need.
What types of extension are available?
If you need extra space in your home, you are not limited to a traditionally-built extension. Your Choice offers a wide range of products to give you the additional room you need, from orangeries and conservatories to garden rooms and retractable patio roofs. Each option has its own unique benefits meaning that whatever your needs, there is a product to suit you.
The traditional extension is either a single-storey rear and/or side extension of the property, or a ground and first-floor extension. If you need more space upstairs then a traditional extension may be a good option for you, alternatively, you could look at converting any loft or attic space at the property to give you extra bedroom space. Loft conversions can usually include an en-suite shower room or bathroom if needed.
Orangeries and conservatories remain popular methods of extending the ground floor area of a property. Both orangeries and conservatories allow light to flood into the new room, making them ideal spaces to use for an extra living area, playroom, home office or gym. Orangeries differ from conservatories because they include brick walls and solid pillars.
If you would prefer your extra space to be away from the main property, a garden room is an ideal solution. These fully insulated rooms can be used all year round and make ideal home offices.
Our gardens are often underused, due to the changeable British weather. A Weinor retractable patio roof can help you make the best use of your garden by allowing you to use the space even when it is raining. The roof can include LED lighting, allowing you to use the covered patio area into the evenings. The advantage of this system is that your garden will give you an extra living space protected from the elements, to be used to relax or dine.
What can extensions be used for?
An extension can be used to provide the space you need whether this is an extra bedroom and/or bathroom, home office space, a larger kitchen, dining area, living space, a playroom or gym.
