- Increased living space: Adding a home extension or granny flat provides more room for a growing family.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Improved quality of life: A home extension can create a more comfortable and enjoyable living environment, leading to a better quality of life.
- Privacy: Creating a separate living space for families to rest and relax in their own way - whatever their age group.
- Multigenerational living: Allowing elderly parents or adult children to live in close proximity safely and with the space they need for independent living.
- Income generation: Renting out a granny flat as a source of extra income - or even an extra room with a home extension.
- Increased property value: Adding a granny flat can increase the overall value of a property by up to 30%.
- Lifestyle flexibility: Things change. More space in the home is allowing families to accommodate changes in living arrangements.
