Increasing your Living Space – What Are the Options


Sooner or later, you will need to increase your living space, what with a growing family that requires more living room, and when the time comes, you have two choices. You can extend the existing property, or upgrade to a larger property, which for many is not really an option, as they like the neighbourhood. So, you are left with the prospect of adding a room or two, and with that in mind, here are your options for adding some comfortable living space to your existing property.

  • Bricks and Mortar Extension – This is the traditional way to extend, and with something that is in keeping with the home, you can add a single or multi-storey extension. There is a reputable home extensions company in Tipton who can design and build you the perfect extension.
  • Modular Structure – There are companies that build modular extensions that are stand-alone structures, and this offers you many options. Garden summer house, for example, can be used for general rest and relaxation, or an office if you work from home, and it can even double up as overnight accommodation for guests.
  • Container Home – The latest trend is to have a stand-alone structure furnished from an empty sea container, and with a choice of 20 or 40ft units, you can have the unit customised to suit your needs.

There is a lot to consider when looking to extend your property, and any of the above suggestions will provide you and your family with that much needed extra space.
