YOU love your home. It’s full of memories and it’s where you feel safe. But it just doesn’t have enough space for you anymore.

With June house sales reportedly at the highest level in the last three years, perhaps now is the time to extend your living space and add value at the same time.

Whether you go for a modern cantilever structure in cutting edge, new materials or a traditional two storey extension in the same brickwork as the existing property, the extra space will not only be a welcome addition to you and your family but when it comes to selling on, you’ll reap the financial rewards.

West London based Open Space Ltd have delivered numerous domestic extensions for homeowners who want to make the most of their property.

Eric Jusz, owner and director, said: “Extending is a far more cost effective solution than moving home, especially when you consider estate agents and legal fees and the hire of transport, and means that you don’t need to leave an area you still love, perhaps uprooting children from their schools or giving you a longer journey to work.

“There are so many options available to give you the space you want. A simple, traditional two storey extension could provide a new bedroom upstairs and a larger, more light and airy kitchen and family room downstairs, for example. Adding a set of folding doors that lead out on to a new decking area can also create a great flow between indoors and outdoors – something that is surely to be welcomed while we enjoy this beautiful sunshine.

“An extension can vastly improve the way you use your house and better your lifestyle. Plus, if you use a company that handles all aspects of the build, from architectural plans and planning permission to the finishing touches, such as Open Space Ltd, the process will be simple and easy.”

Choosing a building company to carry out your extension is a big decision, especially as any work will alter the flow of your property. For this reason, Open Space Ltd has put together this handy checklist to assist homeowners in selecting the right builder for them.
