Building a house extension is one of the most exciting projects you can take on when it comes to home improvements. But with so many options to choose from, it can be difficult to know what kind of extensions to even consider for your house.

Curious to find out what your options are? Read on, because we’re going to explore different types of concrete extensions you can add to your home.

Single-Storey Extension

Single-storey extensions have gained a lot of popularity in recent years, as the demand for indoor and outdoor entertainment spaces has grown increasingly.

Single-storey extensions are built against a part of the house on one level. They can be added to any side of the house, depending on what part you want to extend and how it will work with the building and its surroundings. These are usually done to increase the size of the house and consequently create more space.

It can be a great option for a new kitchen, dining room, bedroom, home office, or a playroom.

Two-Storey Extension

A two-storey extension can be built to any part of an existing building, and it can be used to add an additional room both upstairs and downstairs. Due to a more complex process, the costs will be higher than those of the single-storey house extension. Keep in mind that this can only be done in detached or semi-detached houses and will probably require a planning permit.

This could be an excellent choice for a large kitchen with a dining area and access to the garden on the lower floor, and an additional bedroom or office on the upper floor.

Over-Structure Extension

If your house has an attached garage or a previous extension, it could be a good idea to build an extension on top of it. However, it’s important to keep in mind that some older garages or extensions are unable to handle the weight of another building on top. In that case, structural work will be required to strengthen the walls before adding a new extension on top.

This type of extension is a great option for those who want to add an extra bedroom, office, or a playroom.

Wrap-Around Extension

Wrap-around types of extensions are created by combining a rear extension and a side return extension, creating an L shaped wrap-around extension. You can choose between an open plan extension to create a large illuminated space.

You can also build this extension to increase the size of your kitchen, extend the living room, or add a dining room.
