Double storey extensions are a fantastic option for homeowners who are looking to add a sizeable amount of additional space to their property. The creation of new areas across two floors will completely transform the look of your home and provides a far more cost-effective, and less stressful alternative to moving house.
The great thing about double storey extensions is that they achieve everything that a single storey offering can at the ground floor level, as well as adding an extra room above. A popular combination is having an extended kitchen below and a master suite bedroom on top. However, the customisability options are effectively endless so they can be completely tailored to your specific needs and the layout of your existing property. Whether you’d prefer an extra bedroom, bathroom, office space, playroom or something more niche, a double storey extension can provide it.
Believe it or not, double storey extensions offer far greater value for money than what can be achieved with a single storey build. Although two-storey extensions will almost always cost more than a single, two floors will never cost your twice as much. This is because you actually end up spending far less per square metre with a double storey extension resulting in far more bang for your buck in terms of space creation.
Furthermore, properties are generally valued on the basis of price per square metre. Therefore, if you significantly increase the amount of living space in your home through a well-thought out design as well as ensure that the work done is of a high, long-lasting quality, an extension could substantially increase the price of your home.
In essence, a double storey extension is far less expensive than moving house and will add significant value to your home; essentially future proofing it if you ever chose to sell later down the line. If you get your extension right, it can make a great deal of financial sense in both the short and long-term.
