Double storey extensions create the most space in your home, giving twice the space of other types of extension. They open up a huge amount of space (whether as a side return, rear or wrap-around extension) as they run across two floors, allowing London families an increase in their living space as well as additional room upstairs for an extra bedroom or perhaps an en suite for the master bedroom.
As your family grows, you may find yourself needing more space than your house can accommodate. However, moving house in London can be expensive and stressful, with high competition for every single property. A double storey extension allows you to create more space both upstairs and downstairs, as well as adding value to your property overall.
The downstairs portion of your double storey extension will allow you to create a fantastic living space with all the room you could need. You can have an open plan kitchen with all of the luxuries of high-spec appliances and a bespoke design, that’s perfect for entertaining. You could even incorporate a dining area or living area, with bi-fold doors opening out on to your garden or patio.
The upstairs, meanwhile, will offer space for an extra bedroom or two, so whether that’s a bigger bedroom for a growing child or a brand new room to act as a baby’s nursery, you can get the space you need without looking for a whole new house. If you don’t need a new bedroom, but just want to ease bathroom traffic in the morning, you could use your double storey extension to create an en suite on an existing bedroom.
A double storey extension will hugely increase your living space, adding value to your house and making it much more competitive in the London housing market. So if you decide to move in the future – perhaps at a point where you want to downsize – you’ll be able to market your house at its maximum value.
