Home extension and refurbishment popularity is 'on the rise' and will be maintained going on for...

Updated: Jun 26, 2023

With months of further uncertainty for the housing market as the pressure grows to try and get Brexit sorted by Halloween, it is very likely that the popularity of home extensions will be maintained and will even grow as we move into the Autumn and on into the year ahead

The Mint team has all the design and building contacts, skills and experience to help home- owners ‘grow’ their home, adding both style and value too. Just what is needed for when the housing market ‘frees-up’ a little and it becomes more feasible to make a home move to a new property.


A new extension can surely bring a fresh appreciation and excitement to your home life once a stylish, atmospheric, eye-catching and highly convenient new extension setting is added to your current property. Undertaking such a project will make you hopefully more satisfied and appreciative of your home environment with its new look, extra convenience and the ease of living day to day as it now offers. You will also have the satisfaction of knowing that if and when you do decide to move your home, you will have the advantage of the added value you have added with your stylish new living space refurbishment or extension.

help and advice

Our team of experts are on-hand every step of the way to help and advise you on the design considerations, technical details and finishing touches that will best suit your home layout and your budget. Whether you know exactly what you want, or are simply ready to be inspired, we’ll help bring your ideas to life.


There are various key questions, of course! Will your new living space be North or South facing? Are you overlooked by neighbours? Do you want to make the most of your outside views? Where you plan to locate your new living space will impact on a number of choices including roofing, glazing options, feature doors and security accessories. We at Mint will help you make all the right decisions every step of the way!

garden views

There is much to consider for sure! Is your new space be a new dining room, or an extra room for the kids. Perhaps you must have a larger open-plan style kitchen now or simply you very much would like a special ‘snug-type’ space where you can relax and enjoy the garden views. We can help you choose the ideal shape and design for your needs. Square or rectangle designs often provide the greatest floor space for family rooms, whereas an “L” shape design is ideal for spaces that are likely to be multi-use – all important factors to consider.


From a traditional extension to a sleek and contemporary design, we know the framing types and styles to consider and the tiled roof systems that are appropriate and cost effective. Then there’s those all important skylights, which can play such a vital role in the light and thus the atmosphere of your new extension.

energy saving

There is also performance glazing and how your extension can be planned and fitted to make it as energy saving and comfortable as possible in all seasons of the year. Is it to be classic or modern accessories - we know the choice and we can guide and help you decide what's best for you.

the ‘look

Of course, the aesthetics of you new space is also a major consideration - and quite right! The better it looks, the more value it can add to the atmosphere and thus the selling value of your home. You do of course need to be clear on the ‘look’ and style of your new space and we at Mint can help you choose the right materials to achieve just the look and feel you are seeking.


We can ensure that in all ways, you end up with your perfect living space at the very heart of your home – a space which will hopefully greatly add to and perhaps even transform your home into a whole new place to live!
