Extension IdeasRequest a Quote
The way we live in our homes today is very different from the way our parents or grandparents lived. Their living or lounge room was their main entertaining area when family and friends came by. There was no family or rumpus room and definitely no cinema or games room. The kitchen was usually small and situated in the back of the house, away from visitors' eyes.
Types of house extensions
Take a look at some common extension types to help you get a picture of what you can achieve with your home.
Today, new homes are generally much bigger with large open spaces that are more suitable for entertaining family and friends.
Mum and dad prefer to have their own bathroom, separate from the children. Bedrooms have also become bigger and children are less likely to share a room. Because children are spending more leisure time indoors large entertaining areas have been created. Rumpus rooms and cinema rooms are ideal for watching movies at home on our large screens. The family is also likely to have 2, 3 or even more cars to accommodate. Our kitchens have also become the focal point of our homes, it's where we spend a large amount of time.
Whatever your situation, we have the solution
So you live in an older house that doesn't offer the size and amount of space you need for today's lifestyle. Rather than move, the decision's been made to extend your home, but what type of extension will give you what your family needs?
If your land is large enough, a ground floor extension may be suitable or if space outdoors is a problem, an upper storey may be your only option.
