Adding a single storey rear or side extension to your property gives you year round use of surplus garden space which in the case of large gardens, would probably not even be missed
Depending on the existing design of your property, a rear or side extension opens up unlimited possibilities. Re-arrange the layout of your house. Include a ground floor cloakroom. Create an open plan kitchen/diner, enabling your current dining room to become a family room, study/home office, games room, hobby room, or even an additional bedroom.
In properties with smaller gardens, even a tiny extension can be of enormous benefit, adding just enough space for a W.C. and utility room to house those cumbersome appliances. This would free up your kitchen for a facelift, gaining valuable cupboard space and maybe even extra worktops. If you are already happy with your kitchen, a narrow extension can still form the perfect garden room all through the year
