Add an Extension to your London home
Building extensions in London can be quite difficult due to the restricted space and high-cost. As space is restricted, you may not be able to extend your home horizontally, however extending your home vertically is a great option. Many may think that there aren’t many options for London home extensions, when in fact there are still a few extensions that you can opt for in London.
One of the best extensions that you can have for any home is a basement conversion, so it’s no surprise that it’s on this list! With a basement conversion, you can add a lot of extra space and value to your property without changing the exterior appearance. The beauty of basement extensions is that they can be used for a variety of different and unique things from expanding your current space to adding a whole new feature to your home. Basement conversions can be expensive depending on how big you’d want it to be.

Loft conversions are a great way to utilise the space in your existing loft. They can help to expand your living space by building up and into your loft space. As a lot of space can be created with these extensions, you could use the space for an extra room, or expand an existing bedroom or living space. In-roof loft extensions rarely require planning permission and can add a lot of value to your property.
A garage extension can be a great option to add another room to your property. If your home has a protruding garage, you can have another room built on top of the garage to make for extra space, this will of course add to the exterior appearance of your home and will require a lot of planning. As these extensions are entirely new rooms, you can do anything you desire with your new space, so the possibilities are endless. These types of extensions are expensive, as a new exterior structure will need to be built onto your property.
Rear extensions such as conservatories, orangeries and sun rooms are viable options for home extensions in London if you don’t mind missing out on some of your garden space. These types of extensions can be used for a multitude of different things depending on what type of rear extensions you get. They could be used as a dining area, a place for the kids to play, or can be simply used to give you and your family more relaxation space. Many rear extensions may require planning permissions and vary in price depending on your choice of materials and size.
