Extending your house for the new addition

Monday 26 February 2018

There's nothing more exciting than welcoming a new addition to your home. Nothing can compare to the joy of having the perfect home to raise your family in, which offers the ideal backdrop for their childhood. From meal times in the kitchen to playing in the living room, each family home holds years of memories within their walls.

So, when it comes to bringing your latest arrival home, we all know how important it is that there’s room to grow and evolve. If space is limited in your property, and you want your household to expand to match the size and needs of your growing family, we can help.

Spacious and Homely

When it comes to your children, it can often feel like they take up twice the space of adults, despite their small stature – and a cramped and tiny family home can soon feel claustrophobic when you enter children into the equation, whereas before it felt cosy and homely for the two of you!

You're not alone in feeling this way – and when it comes to raising children, the more space, the better. But don't think you have to look up larger properties just yet; there are a few things you can do to improve the space within your home without paying all those estate agents' fees.

Build Upwards

When you bring your little one home, often they'll start out in your room – but if your parenting style is more likely to involve a nursery, either immediately or a little while following his or her introduction to the home, then you'll need to carve that space out of somewhere.

If your property is the kind where every room has its place, whether it’s an office, the bedrooms of your other children or even just storage space, then fitting your new arrival into your household can be difficult – especially when they need to be close by.

Whether you have older children or still need a workplace from home, consider adapting what you have into a nursery or baby’s room – and move everything else upwards. A London loft conversion can offer you the additional space you need without compromising on child-friendly areas such as your garden.

Increase your floorspace

If a loft conversion to your home isn’t viable, or just isn’t your style, consider a full property extension instead as the perfect way to add additional space to your property. An extension doesn't just add significant value to your home, should you decide to move in the future, but it also gives you a little more room to breathe.

Whether expanding existing rooms – such as the kitchen or bedrooms – is your goal, or if you’re looking to adapt and increase the number of rooms within your property, home extensions in London are one of the top ways to turn your home from bijou into big enough for everyone.

Giving your children the space to flourish and grow is the best gift you can give them – and yourself.
