We work closely with you to establish which type will be best for you based on your existing structure and objectives. With over 30 years of experience, we are the trusted choice for house extensions in Fulham and Chelsea, Richmond, Kingston and across Southwest London.
Here, we have put together a list of the most popular types of extensions to help you choose which one is right for you. The types of extensions we build include:
Side-return extensions are constructed down the sides of houses, transforming unused alleyways or pathways. Side-returns are one of the best ways to expand family living rooms and make home life more enjoyable. Depending on the room available, you could also use the extra space to create a utility room, home office or an open-plan layout. These extensions are ideal for those looking to expand their existing home without sacrificing any of their precious gardens.
Rear-facing house extensions are built out the back of homes to expand the rear room. With kitchens often situated at the back of properties, these extensions are a great way to maximise your space and create the kitchen you have always wanted. You can add an island, kitchen bar and even create an open-plan kitchen/dining room. This is a popular extension for homeowners in Richmond and Kingston because they are typically a planning permission friendly option.
Rear-facing extensions also allow you to seamlessly blend the indoors with the outdoors. Adding bi-fold doors and rooflights helps create a bright and cosy space that connects you with nature.
Wraparounds are a combination of side-return and rear-facing extensions that form an ‘L-shaped’ addition to properties. This is the perfect choice for those looking to greatly expand their ground floor. This type of extension offers a wide variety of design options. Combining two extensions allows you to grow existing rooms and create new ones. So, you can have a larger living room and a new home office or bedroom if you choose.
Double-storey house extensions are the best choice for those looking to maximise their space. These builds are cost-effective and increase the value of homes in and around Kingston and Richmond. Double-storey extensions are larger projects that allow you to create the space you have always wanted without the cost, stress and hassle of moving out of the home you love. Whether you need to accommodate a growing family or have always wanted to upgrade your house, then double-storey extensions are the perfect choice. The experts at ABC Builders can construct double side-return, rear-facing and wraparound extensions to meet all of your needs.
