Looking to add on to your home? If you aren’t sure what type of extension want made to your property, you may find these ideas to be helpful. There are a couple of different types of extensions that you can make to your house. Choosing the right one all comes down to what you intend to use the extension for. Some people just need extra space, while others require the space for specific use, such as an office or bedroom. Sometimes, there’s no need to even knock down walls to make an extension. Unused rooms and space can easily be converted to something useful. Take a look at the ideas below to help you get a sense of what you want to do with your new extension.
Have an attic space that isn’t being used? You can have this room converted into a loft. If you need additional room for a family member, friend or to rent out for extra money, you can do so. There are contractors who specialize in renovating rooms for conversions. Your attic will need to be inspected to ensure its safety. The flooring, walls and beams will need to be assessed. If you want, you can even have ventilation built, so that the room will receive heat and air as needed.
Adding a Conservatory
You can have a conservatory built in your home to bring in more natural light. It can also be designed in a way that makes it very attractive. This should be placed in an area of your home that will allow the conservatory to be pleasant. Great places would be the dining room and kitchen. You don’t want it to be in a room where it will be uncomfortable.
Building an Extension
Extensions can be added to your home in many ways. If you’re looking to extend the size of your basement, for instance, you could do so if your property layout allows for it. Making your basement bigger can be better for storing more items or it can be used as a living or working space.
Rear and side extensions can also be built. Some folks use the added space as kitchens, bedrooms or living areas. Whatever you decide to use the space for, ensure that you decide beforehand, so that the contractor can make the right additions, such as plumbing and electrical work.
Converting a room that you already have is a lot cheaper than building an extension, but if space allows for it and you truly need it, then why not go for it. Extensions should only be built by a licensed, bonded and insured contractor. You can hire the experts at CA Green Remodeling to build an extension for your home.
