Moving house can now cost thousands, if not tens of thousands, so it’s no surprise that more people are looking to improve their existing homes rather than moving. House extensions can offer your family the additional space you need and even completely refurbish living spaces like the kitchen, often without the need for planning permission.
BENEFITS OF HOUSE EXTENSIONS
There are a lot of good reasons why more and more people are choosing house extensions to improve their homes and provide more living space:
You usually don’t need planning permission to build a simple extension
You can add up to 23% on to the value of your home (according to a survey by Nationwide)
You do not need to lose money on solicitor fees, stamp duty, or moving companies
You can plan on having additional space within a set timeframe, rather than hoping that all stages of a chain go through
You still have the same commute and school, with no need to re-plan key parts of your daily routine
Your house extension is perfectly tailored to your needs
You don’ t need to pack
Use your home more efficiently, turning garden or garage space into something that you use every day
TYPES OF EXTENSIONS
Choosing the right type of house extension is one of the most important parts of the building and design process – this decision needs to be based on your available space, what type of rooms you would like to create, and your budget. Most of these house extension types differ based on where you are building it, but others differ based on building materials and the room type.
Some of these types do overlap, for example you can build a single storey rear or side extension. Likewise, a rear extension can also be a kitchen extension, depending on how you use it. You don’t need to know what type of extension you’re building – just let us know what you need and we’ll be sure to design and build the right house extension for you.

Garage conversions are one of the fastest house extensions to build – the external structure is already there, and there are fewer structural changes required than in a standard single or multi-storey extension. Garages are also extremely spacious compared to standard British bedrooms, so the results can be very bright and airy if completed properly.
CREATING HABITABLE ROOMS
While the structure is already there, garages do need work to turn them into habitable rooms. This includes insulation and damp proofing, as well as installing windows. Some of our clients prefer to take out garage walls to add extensive glazing or bi-fold doors to the rear of the property, while others would like to extend their garage further to add even more room onto their homes. Ventilation will also need to be built in, together with changes to the plumbing and wiring.
DESIGNING YOUR GARAGE CONVERSION
Since garages offer more space than standard rooms, this offers the opportunity to split the space into multiple rooms or to create storage spaces to reduce clutter in the rest of your home. Our team will work with you to design space that respond to your requirements as well as the style of your home. This is a great opportunity to add features you’ve always wanted, such as a utility room or hobby room.
GARAGE CONVERSION COSTS
The cost of your garage conversion depends largely on the condition of your garages – some need only minimal changes to turn them into a habitable space, while others need extensive repairs to get rid of damp. Likewise, your specifications have a large impact on the price; garage conversions with bathrooms and features such as bi-fold doors cost considerably more than a simple bedroom addition.

More space for growing families
If your family is growing, you may need more space but probably don’t want the hassle and cost of moving house – particularly with the competitive nature of the housing market. A rear extension will grant you more precious space by allowing you to make a roomier kitchen, dining and living area with fantastic, almost seamless access to your garden. You’ll have all of the extra living space you need, while adding value to your property.
Enough room to cook up a storm
A rear extension is perfect for extending your kitchen and will give you plenty of space for that dream social space – an open plan kitchen and dining area where guests can mingle as you throw great dinner parties, or where kids can hang out while you cook their dinner. You can look at luxury kitchen options including high-spec appliances or an island or breakfast bar – whatever you want, Aspect can help you achieve it.
Bring the outdoors in
Our glazing options include bi-fold doors that completely open up your new rear extension to your garden, creating seamless indoor-outdoor living. This makes entertaining a doddle, especially when it comes to summer BBQs and garden parties, allowing guests to move easily between your garden and kitchen.
