6 Interesting House Extension Ideasby Yours Tyleau Webmaster
Many homeowners feel that they need extra space. Whether it’s to create extra room for a growing family or a sanctuary where they can get away from the stresses of the day, opting to build house extensions is popular with Sydney homeowners. We take a look at six interesting remodelling options and ideas for building extensions in Sydney.
1. Merge Inside and Outside Spaces
Australians love spending time outdoors, whether that’s down at the beach, in the countryside or simply putting on a BBQ in our own backyards. Our homes reflect this affinity with the outdoors, with living spaces that open up into the garden being extremely popular.
Unless you need extra space, there’s no need to build an extension to achieve this effect. By installing bi-fold or sliding doors, you’ll be able to open up your room and blur the lines between inside and out.
2. Add a Deck
When it comes to home extensions Sydney homeowners don’t just consider extending their house, but they want to create living areas outside too. Adding a deck to your home gives you the extra living space you need to enjoy alfresco meals, relaxing evenings and fun get-togethers with families and friends.
3. Build a Studio
Take your outdoor extension one step further and build a studio in your garden. A garden building can be put to so many uses from a home office or gym cum yoga room to a cabana for getting changed during pool parties or extra accommodation for a teenager or older relative.
4. Take it Upwards
We’re not talking about adding an extra storey to your home, although that is a great option for many families – we’re talking about adding an extension on stilts, which works really well if you have a sloping plot. It won’t take up valuable outdoor space but will give you a usable sheltered space and extra enjoyment from your garden.
5. Create a Home Office
As more and more people become homeworkers, a home office can be a very useful addition.
Not only will it give you a quiet and dedicated space to tackle those spreadsheets and writing assignments or to plan your next presentation, but it can double up as a place for your kids to do their homework. If you don’t want to add an extension, look at ways of utilising existing space.
6. Add an Extra Bathroom
Even if only two people live in a property, an extra bathroom will prove to be useful. Adding an extra bathroom is one of the most popular home extensions, especially when you’re trying to accommodate a growing family.
Will Your Extend Upwards or Outwards?
How you extend your home will be dependent on many factors, not least your budget and the space you have available. Speaking to an architect or local builder will give you more information about what is possible.
