Design Ideas for Your Bungalow Extension
Some homeowners may think that their creative options are limited when it comes to bungalow extensions. However, we believe a bungalow extension is a great opportunity to add space that can come in a variety of different design options, no matter what your budget may be. They are also a great way to add value to your property, as well as improving the marketing appeal of your home. Read through our top design ideas, all of which are aesthetically pleasing and would be a great investment to your home.
Upwards Bungalow Extension
Extending upwards on your bungalow is a great way to add light and space to your home. This is generally the first option people look into and go ahead with when looking into bungalow extension options. However, this method will only work if you have at least 2.3m of available head height at the highest point of your loft. If you find yourself without this space above, there are a few options available to you: lifting the roof and extending or strengthening the beams of the house, both of which may require you to evacuate your house whilst they are being fitted in. Planning permission will not be required to carry this out unless you live in a listed building.
Outwards Bungalow Extension
Bungalows will more often than not have a large garden, allowing you to be able to extend outwards to the side of the house or to the rear. Outward bungalow extensions tend to cause less disruption to your family as this process consists of just adding in extra space or a single room. Adding on some extra space opens up an array of possibilities and options for you, design wise. These could include an extra bedroom, kitchen extension, living room, study area, garages, conservatory, vanity room … the possibilities are endless and this is a chance to get really creative.
Balcony or Terrace
Adding on a balcony or terrace to your upwards bungalow extension is a beautiful and contemporary way to add value to your property, and also enhances its marketing appeal. This is a different and interesting way to make your home stand out, while also giving you a lovely view that ground floor extensions do not offer.
Like everything else in the world of construction and renovation, why not go open plan and stay right on trend with creating a clean, open and contemporary design, bringing the outside inside? This allows space, light, and room for circulation, giving your home an overall wow factor that is appealing to all.
