4 Compelling Reasons To Extend Your Home

4 Compelling Reasons To Extend Your Home


You may decide to opt for home extensions in Adelaide when you have a bundle of joy on the way, a new family member, or simply the desire to have more recreational space. Whatever the reason may be, home improvement decisions are growing in popularity – especially with the price of houses at an all-time high. Due to the fact that any construction work on your home is a significant investment of time, energy and money, it is important to first be set in your decision prior to scheduling any work.

So, if you can’t decide between extending your home or putting yourself on the market for a new house, here are some top benefits of extending your property.


1. Customise your existing home

When enlisting the services of a professional to undertake a home extension, you are free to tailor every component of the design to suit your needs and that of your family. With options such as including an office space for those who work from home or adding a utility area for clothes washing, drying and dishwashing activities, it is clear that there are plenty of opportunities to customise and improve your overall lifestyle.


2. Alternative to moving

Extensions are an ideal option to consider if you are looking to increase space without the hassle of moving to a new home. Renovating can involve considerably lesser costs and eliminates the time and effort associated with house hunting and moving. You will only have to put up with a few months’ worth of construction before you can begin living in your more spacious property. Remodelling also allows you to stay where you’re at, which can be a huge advantage if your children have already settled into their school or neighbourhood.


3. Adds value to your home

The main aim of all extension projects is to add value to your home. Whether you intend to put your property up for sale, house flip or simply wish to future-proof your home, an extension can elevate the sale price and produce a significant return on investment. It is worthwhile to consider the type of extensions that are more likely to deliver the highest return on investment (ROI).

Some of the more popular upgrades that provide a sound ROI include renovations and extensions in the following areas:

· Kitchen
· Bathroom
· Attic
· Basement
· Bedroom (e.g., adding a walk-in wardrobe)
· Addition (or Modification) of an outdoor living space, such as incorporating a(n):

1. Pergola
2. Deck or patio
3. Outdoor fire
4. Built-in barbecue
5. Built-in day beds

4. Additional living space

Extensions provide you with a larger space – an especially valuable feature as your family continues to grow. Additionally, it provides a home with a more open feel or simply allows you to put more things in your home or improve its function. An extension that’s done well can also maximise the space and leave your home with a modern yet welcoming feel.
