Home extensions are becoming an increasingly popular option for homeowners looking to expand their living space in a time and cost effective manner. Whether you need extra room for a growing family, a home office, an indoor-outdoor living space, or simply want to add value to your property, a well-planned home extension in Brisbane can be a smart investment. In this article, we explore five compelling reasons why you should consider a home extension for your house.
- Increase Living Space
The number one reason for a home extension is also the reason most people consider home extensions in the first place: increased living space. As families grow or circumstances change, a lack of space can become an issue. A home extension allows you to create the extra room you need, whether it’s an additional bedroom, a larger kitchen, a spacious living area, a home office or an indoor-outdoor area, home extensions can be the perfect solution to your needs.
One of the most common home extensions for Queensland homeowners is the addition of an indoor-outdoor living space. An indoor-outdoor living space can be enjoyed year round, is perfect for entertaining, and gives you an additional space to lounge around in where you can make the most of the perfect QLD weather. As outdoor lovers, QLDers will be happy to know that creating an indoor-outdoor space can usually be done fairly easily through a home extension.
- Avoid the Cost and Stress of Moving
Moving to a new house is a significant undertaking that involves substantial expenses and stress. If you need more space, home extensions offer an attractive alternative, allowing you to stay in your current home/neighborhood and avoid the upheaval of relocation. Home extensions in Brisbane are often the more cost effective alternative option when you factor in the cost of moving, including first of all embarking on a near-impossible journey to find the perfect home within your budget, stamp duty, real estate agent fees, and other expenses. These expenses can significantly exceed the cost of a well-planned home extension which can give you the added space you need with far less hassle and expenses. And for many people, they already love the home they have and moving into a new one simply because they need a bit more space is not what they consider the perfect solution.
- Customise and Personalise
A home extension gives you the opportunity to customise and personalise your added new space according to your specific needs and preferences. Unlike purchasing a new property, where you have to compromise on certain features, a home extension in Brisbane allows you to design the space exactly as you envision it since you’re in control from point ‘Go’! From choosing the size and layout to selecting materials and finishes, your home extension is purpose-built to your requirements and preferences.
- Boost Property Value
A thoughtfully designed and well-executed home extension can significantly increase the value of your property in the short and long run. Extra space, whatever its purpose, is attractive to potential buyers and can give your home a competitive edge in the real estate market if and when you decide to sell your property. Even if you don’t plan to sell your home in the near future, the added value from home extensions in Brisbane can be a long-term benefit and a smart investment.
- Enhance Functionality and Lifestyle:
For many of us, the home we’re living in currently was somewhat perfect – for when we first moved in. However, fast-forward a few years and chances are things have changed – family, career, goals, lifestyle aspirations etc. For some, the changes may be significant enough to warrant a new home, however for most, a simple home extension can cater to the changes, allowing you to stay in the home you first fell in love with.
Whether you dream of a dedicated home gym, a home office, a private home theater, a bigger kitchen, or need room for a new family member, a well-designed home extension can cater to your lifestyle aspirations. Your newly created space has the ability to not only add functionality and comfort to your home, but also enhance your lifestyle.
With careful planning and execution, a home extension can transform your house into the home of your dreams while making a sound investment in your property’s future.
As detailed above, there are some compelling benefits to a home extension, from having increased living space and creating a custom space to suit your specific needs to added property value, and improved functionality and lifestyle. In addition to these, a home extension can be a far more cost-effective solution to getting that bit of extra space you need, compared to finding, buying and moving into a new home. Home extensions in Brisbane can usually be done in a simple manner, making it an even more attractive option.
