It is a great way to add space onto the property while also allowing an abundance of light to enter the home through patio or bi-folding doors, and if you choose, the addition of a stunning bespoke lantern. Another concept that we love adding onto an extension design is open plan living, as this helps to open up the space you have, making it feel much bigger and brighter. Open plan living also allows you to incorporate more rooms without them feeling cluttered or claustrophobic, making it the perfect space for a kitchen and dining room looking out onto your beautiful garden all year round. If you would like to know more about how you can design open plan living in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas, please feel free to get in contact with the team.
If you choose to add an extension onto your home, then depending on the size of your plans, you may be able to build under the permitted development rights act. This act allows you to build onto your home up to a certain size and only if the extension is single storey without planning permission. You must also determine whether your home is in a conservation area or graded, as this will also impact whether you will require planning permission. However, if you do require planning permission, then our team will always be more than happy to help when building your new home addition. Not only will we ensure that you are equipped with all of the paperwork and information required to increase chances of gaining planning permission, but our team will also help you submit your paperwork for a swift and stress-free experience.

Luckily, when investing in new space though an extension, you can choose from a range of stunning design options to enhance your living space. These designs can also be tweaked and amended to suit you, ensuring that every aspect of your home extension fulfils your requirements. To help you piece together an idea of what style may best suit your needs, let’s take a closer look at the six different designs we have to offer:
For those looking to create a contemporary design with their extension, an orangery is the perfect home addition. This design provides a flat glass lantern to enhance the ceiling height, making the space feel bigger and allowing ample light to enter the property. Your roof lantern, or Velux windows depending on the style you choose, are beautifully accompanied by large windows and doors to enhance the spacious and airy feel that the orangery design creates.
One of the most popular extension types is the stunning Kew design, which is no surprise considering it has exceptional design features that enhance your property’s aesthetic. The benefit of this style is that it offers a more coherent touch to your home, making the extension feel more intertwined and a part of the home compared to other styles. When inside the property, you will not be able to notice that an extension has been added, and your new home addition will fit seamlessly into the layout of your home.
If you wish to incorporate a spacious kitchen into your home extension, the Rousham design will be the best option. Not only does it allow you to incorporate ample space into your home, but it also provides you with a unique and eye-catching home extension. The Rousham design is also fully customisable and can be built in a range of sizes to suit most homes. While this design looks stunning as a contemporary addition, it is mainly recommended as a home addition for those with a detached property.
Many of our clients, particularly those with period homes, love incorporating a touch of character onto their property, and the Eden design is the perfect opportunity. An Eden extension offers a more traditional style with a touch of modern flair, completely tailored to your home.

As mentioned above, there are various rooms that you can incorporate into your home extension, not just a luxury new kitchen. The best way to determine how you are going to use this space is to first gather your requirements.

By understanding your need for a home extension, you can easily create a design that caters to these needs, from the plug socket arrangements to the doors and windows you incorporate. Some of our favourite room ideas for your extension include the following:
- Living room
- Dining room
- Games room
One of the biggest benefits to adding an extension onto your home aside from incorporating additional space, is that it can add exceptional value onto your property. As a home increases in size, it ultimately increases in value, making a home extension the perfect option for those that do not want to sell up just yet, but have plans to in the next couple of yours. In fact, according to Homes & Property, an extension that adds 25 square metres onto your property, can provide you with an additional £59,000 on the property’s value. This means that while it may seem like a large investment to make, you can reap the benefits of additional space while living in the property, and then get your money back and more when deciding to sell up. When you incorporate a new kitchen extension into your design, then you can further increase the value of your home by around 15%.
Enhance Comfort & Style
