How big can a single story home extension be?

Are you wondering how big an Essex home extension can be? If so, this article is for you. If you have been thinking about adding an extension to your property, you do need to spend time deciding how big it needs to be. Extensions can be costly, and they can take a while to build. Let’s take a look at what you need to think about when you’re planning an extension project including a kitchen extension.

Home extension sizes

If you have a big family or entertain visiting friends or family on a regular basis, you may wish to opt for an extension that has several bedrooms and bathrooms. If you have enough space, a large single story extension can be ideal. However, a smaller extension may be the better option if there are only one or two people in your household and you don’t tend to have guests staying over.

Which options are available?

It really comes down to budget. If you can afford to go big then a large single story may be the answer. If designed well then a smaller single story extension can feel like a huge change to you home living space. Think carefully about your lifestyle and the amount of space you want to add to your property.

Another option you have available to you is a kitchen extension in Essex. There are many styles to choose from when you’re considering a kitchen extension. Conversions and extensions can be much more affordable and convenient than relocating out of an area that you are settled in.
