Home Extensions


If you’re extending your home, you need to ensure that it looks good, that it’s practical and suits your needs, too.


Modern building control insists upon glazing of a certain standard and specification, but it’s worth paying for the best that you can afford, rather than sticking to the minimum. Ensure your extension is well insulated and that the glazing is capable of keeping heat in (in winter) and out (in summer).

Light and Bright

Extending the room that overlooks your garden might mean that you create a long thin space that’s very dark at one end – and by that we mean the end furthest from the garden.  Consider your lighting options, that will mimic a daylight feel throughout the extension.


If you can get planning permission to create a vaulted roofline, do so. It will look more interesting from the exterior, but from the inside, it can make a major impact – taking a room that’s potentially low-ceilinged and on the small side and transforming it into one that feels bright and spacious.

Think Electrics

You need to plan well ahead with your electrics, particularly if you are having a lot of glazing within an extension. Getting your lighting wall-mounted will be a must if your ceiling is glazed; equally, floor or ceiling mounted lighting will be the best choices in a room with glazed walls. Plan ahead for appliances, such as wall-hung tvs, too – electrics should idealy be concealed behind them.

What about your view?

Using lots of glazing also exposes the interior of your home to prying eyes from outside – so plan your view at the same time as your build. This might mean having a wall built along with your extension – or having trees planted as soon as building finishes – or before it starts if they won’t obstruct the works.

Will it integrate well?

Ideally, a new extension, should blend seamlessly with the existing property. This means planning the new layout meticulously, especially if you’re combining the new room with an old one. The biggest mistake is to create a new room with an awkward layout.
