Fresh Ideas For A Home Extension

sun room home extension

Building an extension to your home involves plenty of logistical tasks that keep the overall event fairly complicated. Of course, you'll have to design the room (or hire someone to design it for you), hire a construction team to come out and start building, and then wait while the extension is actually built.

And at that point, your work is just beginning! From cleaning up construction leftovers, to stocking up on decorations and supplies at the nearest B&M store, to making the extension look like a part of your home, you'll likely be busy for weeks. And even then you'll fret over issues like the security of the extension, or whether Aviva home insurance automatically covers the extension, etc.

When you choose a home insurance policy, coverage can be very specific, designed to handle a pre-determined set of potential issues, so it's natural to wonder (and you certainly ought to check) if the extension is included in your policy as a part of your home.

But none of these issues will come up at all if you never figure out what you want in your home extension in the first place! More often  than not, the decision to build a home extension arises out of a specific need - the desire for more kitchen space, the need to rent out a room, etc.

But in other instances, a home extension simply represents a measure of home improvement! So if you've been considering an extension but you need a good reason to put yourself through the logistical hassles outlined above, here are 5 great uses for a home extension to consider.

1. Master Suite
Many couples who save up for a home extension love the idea of expanding the master bedroom by turning it into a "suite." This is a vague, but tantalizing concept. Basically, it amounts to more space in the bedroom, which could be used for open space, a sitting area, a home theatre setup, etc.

2. Sunroom
This is a very popular home extension that can give you a lovely new space to enjoy in your home. has some great examples to look at if you'd like to design one of these rooms in your home. Generally speaking, heavily windowed walls and ceilings make these rooms perfect blends between indoors and outdoors, and they can be pleasant in sun and rain alike.

3. Guest Suite
Sometimes guest housing is basically a necessity, but some simply choose to build extensions for guest space as a convenience. It's certainly nice to have room for visitors, rather than having to ask people to sleep on couches, etc.

4. Workshop
Garages seem to inevitably become cluttered with this and that over the years, so the idea of a new, clean, workshop extension is appealing to many homeowners. Whether it's for supporting a hobby or a specific need, a workshop can be surprisingly handy.

5. Dining Area
Finally, there's also something to be said for building a new dining room. Typically the dining area in a home is put in the most convenient location, and organized accordingly - but starting from scratch can allow you to create a stunning dining area specifically tailored to your needs and preferences.
