home extension ‘thoughts’

As a further reference to these vital initial considerations, buzzing around in your brain … spotted online - from no less than the BBC - was a little home extension thought process management ….suggesting what to weigh up and how to get prepared for your projects future success.

Read on then for some reassurance …

If you're feeling adventurous...a home extension can radically improve a property.

Bigger, better space and extra rooms add vital sales value remember, and also make a house more attractive to buyers…

Rising property prices - with a premium being put on space - can make extensions a wise investment. However, this is a major project and shouldn't be undertaken lightly”

Call in professionals to get the job done properly, as there could be important planning restrictions and regulations which need to be followed.

Ask friends to recommend an architect and builders. It is really important that you locate the best people, as a botched extension can devalue a property.

Also to consider - A modern extension can look good on an old house, when it comes to selling on it is important to appeal to the average buyer's taste. An extension needs to match the architectural style of the existing house.

The National Federation of Builders (NFB) can provide you with a list of registered builders in your area. A builder that belongs to a respected trade organisation will have to comply with membership standards.

If you need an architect, … The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) provides a list of registered architects….quite right!

Extra bathrooms and large kitchens are usually good investments in family-sized homes, and a garage in a busy, urban area will also add value.

If YOU are making structural changes with the purpose of adding value, … …you should first find out the current market price of your property, as well as its potential value once the changes have been made. Otherwise, your hard work and cash may not reap rewards.

To end on ….The room that usually benefits the most from enlarging is the kitchen….most know that! Adding a kitchen/diner creates the farmhouse kitchen most people want …..and this provides key extra space of course!
