Getting ROI From Your Home Extension

Written by Greg Wilkes

Planning a home extension is usually a decision made to create much needed space, and to avoid the expense and upheaval of moving to a larger property. From conversations with our clients in Ealing and other West London boroughs, a home extension is often the only cost effective way to stay in a much loved area; as buying a house with the additional space frequently involves moving out of London.

While the value a home extension adds to a property is not always a significant concern - with homeowners usually comparing the cost of moving with the cost of extending - we all want to add value to our homes and get a reasonable return on investment (ROI).

What To Do With Your Teenagers When They've Outgrown Your House!

What To Do With Your Teenagers When They've Outgrown Your House!

It’s interesting how our homes evolve around our lives, and certainly our children’s lives. There are a couple of trends I’ve noticed when working on family homes.

Parents with young children are interested in opening up living spaces, creating large family rooms through kitchen and living room extensions. They also need better utility areas and cloakrooms: to cope with larger laundry demands and toilet visits!

Whereas parents with teenagers want more private space. They don’t want to lose the family living areas, there’s still a hope that their offspring will want to spend time with them! They still need to maximise the number of bathrooms in a house, and utility areas are in high in demand. However, both parents and teenagers need to be able to escape from each other, and therefore we get many clients coming to us looking for ideas to create additional bedrooms or separate living rooms to accommodate their changing needs.

If You Can't Go Up, Can You Go Down? Basement Conversions To Create More Space

Written by Greg Wilkes

Have you exhausted your options to extend your house or convert your loft? You’re not alone! Many Londoners and those out in the suburbs are looking for other solutions to create more space in their homes.

One increasingly popular solution is to go down, by converting an existing basement into an extension of your living space, or even excavating under your home or garden.

As you might expect, converting an existing basement and retaining its floor-plan is the more straightforward and less costly option. However there are a few hoops you will need to jump through with Building Regs and Planning to get a project like this off the ground (or in this case under the ground!)
