Single storey living has a relaxed vibe that’s ideal for those seeking a cool and calm aesthetic. Sooner or later, however, your family will need room to breathe, live and grow and a bungalow extension can be the ideal way of creating some extra living room by unlocking the full potential of your property. Jeffery and Wilkes are London’s leading house extension specialists.
Unlock your property’s potential
The scope to extend your home is often more generous with a bungalow, as single storey homes often occupy a substantial plot of land. That means you can extend into the garden without compromising on your outside space – in fact, in many instances, your extension may be used as a way of making a seamless transition between the home and the garden as they do so brilliantly in California and Australia. By creating a sensational entertaining space or a unique home office, a light-filled extension project can totally transform the dynamic of your home.
A space to grow
Thanks to permitted development rules, extending a bungalow is a truly hassle-free project. Working with an experienced build and design team means you’ll be able to unlock the potential of every inch of your permitted 8-metre deep extension to create new living space for a family or a spacious hobby or craft room. A straightforward extension project is a great opportunity to extend a kitchen into a high-end entertaining space, or to create a bespoke work/play space for a stay at home parent.
Don’t move, improve
If you love your location and have no intention of moving, then improving your home is an opportunity to undertake an innovative refurbishment that will both renovate and transform your living space and add value. Opening up your space into an extension using bi-fold doors could provide the live/work space that allows you to entertain friends and family while you look after the children. Or take the opportunity to remodel your work from home space and create a home office and meeting room that’s destined to impress your clients.
Because there’s so much potential for extension and refurbishment in a bungalow, it’s a savvy way to maximise value while improving your own living space – the first rule of developing any property. Make the space work for you in a way that plays to modern interior design trends including open plan living, bringing the indoors outdoors and work/play living and you’ll create a beautiful and relaxed space with multiple uses that maximises the value of your property.
