Home Extension Ideas That will Make Your House a Home

For most of us, irrespective of where we’re living currently, we always seek ways in which we can make our home more comfortable. This can be because of an increase in the family size or a decision to create an office space in your home. All these make us crave more space.  Moving to a new house that fits our desire is always an option but it can be quite expensive. An alternate cost-effective approach is to extend your current house with some home extension in Sydney.

There exist a plethora of ways to achieve these home extension ideas from rear to roof extensions, a little adjustment to some corners in your house to create more space than your home extension builders can assist you with. Here are some ideas for extensions that will make you comfortable in your home:


A home extension in Sydney can include the exterior of your home as well as the interior. Your deck is just an outdoor extension of your home, and its size adds aesthetic as well as financial value to your home. Hundreds of design ideas can make your deck into the outdoor retreat of your dreams, with pergolas, hot tub additions, and fire pits. You’ll create an area where you can entertain guests, and you’ll improve your property all at the same time.


If expanding is not an option then maybe this is for you. Loft conversions give you a great return on investment and interesting space to turn into a bedroom, bathroom, or study. The angled roof is perfect for installing skylights to flood your new loft with loads of natural light. Loft conversions are also considered minor constructions and will often avoid the need for planning permission. But be sure to check with your North Shore builder before you start the conversion to avoid any nasty fees or lawsuits.


Basements can give an added living room space for your extended family or an office that you have always wanted. Your home extension builders can help you waterproof your basement and create it into a space that is perfect for you. Along with a living room, you can also add additional bathrooms and bedrooms in your basement, if you have enough space.


For those looking for an even cheaper house extension idea, a Sunroom would be a great option. This is a house extension that consists of large windows to allow abundant daylight while still sheltering you from harsh weather. A sunroom’s roof is built with normal roofing materials like tiles and also allows for easy control of temperatures.

Second Storey

 If you do not have the extra property to extend your home horizontally, why not move up. A home extension builder will be able to tell you the structural ramifications of adding a second story to your home. If your second story includes just living space such as bedrooms and a family room, then your add-on will not be as expensive compared to if you add on a bathroom or any other room that requires plumbing. Perhaps you want to add a second story to your garage. Your North Shore builders can create an apartment or a workout room that adds some great value to your house and enough space for you.
