Home Goals 2023

There's nothing more important than family. Our foundation of emotional support, security, belonging, identity and values. At Cubitt's, we know your home is what is supporting, surrounding and nurturing your family - in so many different ways, and we're here to support you finding the best way to family for you.

  1. Increased living space: Adding a home extension or granny flat provides more room for a growing family.
  2. Improved functionality: An extension can be designed to meet specific needs, such as an extra bathroom, a larger kitchen, more bedrooms, or a dedicated playroom.
  3. Enhanced aesthetics: A well-designed extension or granny flat can improve the overall look and feel of a home, increasing its value and curb appeal.
  4. Increased storage: Adding an extension can provide additional storage space for items such as clothes, toys, or tools. A granny flat could be an office or home business space.
  5. Improved quality of life: A home extension can create a more comfortable and enjoyable living environment, leading to a better quality of life.
  6. Privacy: Creating a separate living space for families to rest and relax in their own way - whatever their age group.
  7. Multigenerational living: Allowing elderly parents or adult children to live in close proximity safely and with the space they need for independent living.
  8. Income generation: Renting out a granny flat as a source of extra income - or even an extra room with a home extension.
  9. Increased property value: Adding a granny flat can increase the overall value of a property by up to 30%.
  10. Lifestyle flexibility: Things change. More space in the home is allowing families to accommodate changes in living arrangements.
