Most people don’ know the true value of adding a rear extension until they actually do it. They start out thinking about adding more space but the real benefits lay undiscovered until  after the builders are gone and they try to settle down again. It’s about this point that the penny starts to drop because everybody is behaving a little different now.

When you add an extension you’re not just adding on more living space. You are in fact changing the layout of the house which means that when the builders are gone everyone starts to adjust to the new layout and in most cases, especially if it was a modern extension with a nice open plan layout, you tend to see more of each other because everyone wants to use the new space.

Example: Just look at the contrast of old and new. An amazing rear extension that adds so much to an otherwise dull property...


Most traditional UK homes have pokey kitchens that didn’t allow for much company when you’re preparing a meal but now that you have added a rear extension and opened up the place a bit you may well be able to watch a bit of tv on the wall mounted flat screen, assuming you installed one.

You may also be able sit on a stool and use your laptop on the new breakfast bar assuming you installed one.

The kids will also enjoy crashing on the new couch, watching tv or playing X-Box assuming you installed one.

Example: Everything you could possibly need. A lovely modern rear extension incorporating kitchen, dining and recreational area..

My point of course is that when you add on a rear extension and open up the rear house wall you will now have the largest room in the house with loads of light that is effectively multi-purpose and everybody wants to use it because it has everything you need all in one living space.

During the warmer weather the new folding doors can be opened right back and if your extension is designed well with a smart patio that matches up it will be hard to tell the difference whether you are inside or outside half the time.

So, adding on a rear extension is not simply about adding more space but in fact an opportunity to recreate you home to suit a more modern lifestyle. Most traditional homes have rooms that are no bigger than 12ft or 13ft and were created for entirely different lifestyles.

By adding an extension and going for an open plan layout you now have the largest room in the house and it’s not surprising that everyone want to use this new living space.

Example: Adding a contemporary rear extension to a period property can work really well. Note how all the windows have been coloured to match the extension...

As an architect I have lost count of the  number of times clients have told me how much their lives have changed for the better following a simple extension to their home. It’s now a pleasure to cook a meal because you don’t feel isolated and your new living space become the hub of the home.

So if you are considering adding on a rear extension then get on with it as it will change your life for the better, give you years of pleasure and add substantial value to your property.
