house extension Hampshire

There are numerous reasons why you may want to invest your time and money in a home extension. Although a home extension project is a commitment, you can reap the rewards once your ideas come to fruition. Home extensions can be a great way to avoid the hassle of moving house when you need more space if your household number is increasing, as well as being a way to increase the value of your property. At Exbury Homes, we can help you to transform your home from your existing structure by expanding your home upwards, outwards, downwards, or any combination of the three. Read on to find out more about each type of home extension.

Upwards Home Extensions

Our upwards home extensions are one of the most popular ways to extend homes. This is usually due to properties having a loft that is often used for storage, when it could be easily converted into a fully functioning room. A loft conversion will transform this dormant space into a wonderful attic room, whether you use it as a bedroom, study, or something else entirely. One of the selling points of loft conversions is the option to include a skylight roof, where you can watch the stars at night from the comfort of your bed. Otherwise, we can add a dormer roof or convert a hipped roof into a gable roof. Dormer roofs project vertically beyond the plane of a pitched roof, offering more space. A hipped roof means that the roof has sides that slope down to the walls. On the other hand, a gable roof has just two sloping sides, opposed to the pyramid style shape, therefore providing you with more space.

Outwards Home Extensions

When you extend your home outwards, space on the ground for will need to be sacrificed. There will need to be land available that surrounds your home, which would most commonly be in the garden. What you sacrifice in outside space, you could potentially double or triple in terms of the space in your home. Whilst a single storey extension would typically include a conservatory area, so light can spill into your whole house, or a garage, where you can park your vehicle safety and obtain extra storage space, it’s also possible to offer multi-storey home extensions in this way. Two-storey extensions usually extend the existing rooms downstairs, and at the same time add more rooms upstairs.

Downwards Home Extensions

The final way to carry out home extension refurbishment is by building downwards. This option relies on having existing basement space, where we can help you make the most of the space, rather than just using it for storage. Whilst storage is always handy, why not combine storage solutions with a home gym, a wine cellar, or a home cinema? The options are only limited by your imagination.
