Add Value to Your Home with a Timber Extension

In recent years there has been a massive rise in the popularity of home renovation projects. In fact, you only need to watch a property programme on the television or flick through a home design magazine to see just how popular these projects are becoming.

Primarily attributed to the increase in property prices, home renovation projects can involve completely refurbishing a home, converting a loft or attic or adding an extension.

Renovating your home can, in some cases, be cheaper and more convenient than relocating entirely. Adding an extension, for example, will offer valuable extra living space. And, when the time does come to move on, you can enjoy selling a home which is worth much more as a result.

A hardwood extension can be a fantastic option when you’re undertaking a renovation project.

Whether you opt to use it for a playroom, home office, extra bedroom or dining room, it will add important square footage to your home - which will instantly help to boost its value.

The value an extension will add will depend on its size and quality. Outside of London, property is likely to be valued at approximately £900-£2000 per square metre. Researching similar nearby properties will give you a good indication as to how much add extension could add. In addition, it is important to use a professional company with a history of good quality work.

Opting for an oak conservatory

An extension can be as big (think a house wide, kitchen extension) or small (possibly a porch or lean-to) as your requirements and budget allows. One of the most popular forms of extension, however, is a conservatory - and opting for one is a great and cost-effective way to add space and value to your home.

Adding a conservatory is a very straight-forward and fuss-free project and the extra room the conservatory provides will be sure to transform your home and the lives of everyone who reside within it.

Opting for an oak conservatory is a great choice - especially if you’re looking to add value to your home. Not only does the aesthetic appeal of an oak conservatory far outweigh that of its uPVC counterpart, but timber also offers a huge number of structural and environmental benefits. For example, oak is incredibly durable, has a very long lifetime, is really low maintenance and is a renewable, sustainable product.

An important tip when adding a conservatory is to make sure it suits the style of the rest of your home. An oak conservatory is the perfect way to ensure this; building with oak will make sure the structure is full of charm and looks like part of your existing home - rather than something tacked onto it.

A room with bifold doors, often dubbed an ‘outroom’ by those within the home design industry, has seen a huge surge in popularity in recent years and is a great way to add value to your home. In fact, recent statistics show that adding bifold doors to your home can add between 2 and 6% to the value of your property.
