Updated: Jun 27, 2023

An extension might be the answer to beat Brexit and the relating uncertainties with fluctuating prices in the current housing market

Are you thinking about a home extension in the not too distant future. The Brexit uncertainty is making people think twice before they decide to move that’s for sure and the recent relaxing of certain planning requirements, highlighted here on this Blog, means more and more people if they want more space are considering the option of a home extension instead of a home move.

greater numbers

According to some statistics, planning applications for extensions over recent years have risen over 20% and we at Mint have found that right here in our business environment a greater numbers of homeowners are looking to increase their usable living space instead of selling up their current homes and buying a new property.


As home extension experts, we have had a considerable number of opportunities in the recent past to work on all sorts of different Extension type projects across Cheltenham and The Cotswolds. Of course there are so many different types of extension that you can consider for your home and we at Mint are always available through our ‘Extend Instead’ service to help and guide you in building the well-planned, cost effective extension that is just right for your home.


Of course as well as developing a whole new extension to your home, as we have highlighted here in this blog, it is also fair to say that some well-considered refurbishment and interior layout re-organisation can also have an impressive effect on the whole ‘liveability’ of your home


Upgrading your kitchen will be a 'win win' situation - an improved living experience for you day to day for now and added value should you sell.

Given that the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the average home, an all round upgrade revolving around the kitchen, is often a key choice of many home owners. An expanded, updated, well presented kitchen for sure provides so much. A new kitchen today can offer a different type and style of open plan living.


If well-designed and presented right, a modern kitchen extension will allow you to enjoy a whole new living 'atmosphere' experience in your home. A new kitchen is a space which with thought and a little ingenuity can offer a wide range of different living spaces and uses all of which can to make day to day life easier and surely more enjoyable.

best value

Also, should you ever decide to sell your property, an expanded kitchen is usually the area that will certainly add the best value to the potential selling price your home. What’s more, when it comes to increasing the value of your home, a conservatory can be a “good bet. This is one of the most popular home extension projects and it seems we Brits do like our conservatories...and rightly so!

window on the world’

Light, bright and restful- a Conservatory of any type is surely a unique and most enjoyable living environment for any home.

A conservatory can also bring a light, bright ‘window on the world’ type of living atmosphere to you home that you just haven’t been able to enjoy in the past. This is type of extension that can be built to your exact specifications – regardless of your level of eccentricity – without detracting from the overall look and feel of the rest of the home.
