Building an extension

Extending your property is a major construction and can be an expensive move. Any significant building work will cause disruption and reduce outdoor space but the end-result of extra square footage and additional living space can be a real advantage.

Ensure your plans are in line with the style of your property and that the extension will add functional living space. Do not  for example add bedrooms when you have a small living room space.

Converting the attic:

Most home improvements will add some value but attic conversions can represent the best value for money. Most attics or lofts with a roof height of at least 2.4 metres are suitable for conversion and are normally used to add another bedroom and en-suite.

Extensions and loft conversions involve major building work and require expert help so call Donnelly Home Maintenance for a free and friendly quotation for all your building works.

Adding extra bedrooms:

Whether you extend or convert existing space it is tempting to add an extra bedroom and this has a  visible effect on estate agents’ statistics on increasing the value of your property.

Do however consider the proportions of your home and avoid adding in additional bedrooms unnecessarily. Consider your potential market as families may want to give children small rooms of their own whereas couples generally prefer one or two spacious bedrooms.

Opening up space:

There’s no sign that the trend for open-plan living is disappearing so be sure to have natural light, open-plan cooking space and luxurious living areas while at the same time appealing to those looking for practical family homes. often need rooms to shut away white goods, household waste, children and pets. It’s also essential to get the professionals in to make sure you’re not bashing down load-bearing walls.

Kitchen-diners are a popular use of space, but the sitting room was ranked the most important room in the house by respondents in the Halifax survey. The most successful open-plan rooms tend to be ‘zoned’ to define space.
