Design Ideas For Extending Your Home

At Arc Design Services Ltd, we understand that many of today’s homeowners face a dilemma.

They’re happy in the area in which they live and their children are settled at a school close by and therefore don't want to move property, but are rapidly running out space and need to find a solution. The answer is to extend your home. A home extension has many benefits.

With the right materials and correct planning, extending your home can often make financial sense. To make the most out of your home extension, it’s important to think about it carefully. We’ve put together a few ideas to help you on your way!

1. Reconfigure what’s there

As well as adding new space, reconfiguring the space you already have to create the optimum layout for making the best use of lighting, and access to the garden is essential in making your new extension work for you and your family! Before making any drastic changes, make sure that you make use of the space you already have!

2. A feature staircase

Have you ever thought about changing the design of your staircase? Why consider making the staircase a key design feature to your home? There are many options to choose from that can work really well. For some inspiration, take a look at our previous blog (X) to give you some ideas!

3. Add an Orangery

Small orangeries generally don't require planning permission and are excluded from the building regulations whilst also being fairly inexpensive, making them one the most popular home improvements. If you’re thinking about adding an orangery, why not integrate the orangery into your existing home to make it an extension to an existing room?

4. Give your kitchen a makeover

The kitchen is the heart of the home, so extending it to create more space to relax with friends and family is a good call! Extending your kitchen is one of the most popular home improvement projects, and if you get the space right, your new kitchen will definitely add to the enjoyment and value of your home!

5. Go up or down

Consider using loft space or even cellar rooms to expand your living space. This can be ideal if you don't want to encroach on your garden, and even if you have to lose a little space to create room for a staircase, you’ll end up with more living area overall.

There’s so many different ways and ideas you can use to extend and add value to your home. If you’d like help extending your home, Arc Design Services Ltd can help!
