A side extension is suitable for owners of older Victorian and Georgian properties with unused side alleyways. It can add up to 3 meters to the kitchen width, which could transform little dark room into a bright kitchen-diner. Adding an outsized roof light or a glazed ceiling will bring extra light into your home.

A wrap-around extension involves extending both the rear and therefore the side of the property maximising the bottom floor potential of your home.

This is often because an outsized proportion of the value for any extension is that the roof and you’ll only need one roof no matter the quantity of storeys you would like to create. Also, the impact on neighbours is far greater and may be done only in detached or semi-detached houses with a side plot or garden.

As you’d expect, the larger the size of the extension, the upper the worth. So this sort of house extension will most likely require planning permission.
