Avoid the hassle of moving

If you love the suburb you live in but have outgrown the space in your home, you don’t need to sell your home and move. By extending and renovating your home, you can avoid the cost, hassles and readjustment of relocating and settling into a new home and neighbourhood. It’s often also more cost effective to extend your existing home rather than packing up and moving, especially in the current economic climate.

Extra living space allows for more quality time spent together as a family and improves the efficiency of your spaces through an open plan kitchen, dining and living area for added social time to share with family and guests.

Different types of room extensions and renovations

The options to extend and renovate the rooms in your home are practically endless. Major room extensions and renovations can include remodelling entire living spaces, adding a new bathroom, building new bedrooms or expanding vertically into a second storey abode. Here are some of the most practical ideas to extend and renovate your home: 

Expanding upward into a second-storey extension is a practical solution to create more space for living quarters, bedrooms and bathrooms, whilst freeing up space on the ground floor for entertainment.

An upstairs living room extension gives your family more space to relax and socialise. It also provides a more secluded space for everyone to spend quality time, with and without guests.
A typical Australian home often has a backyard or garden setting that is underutilised. This space is perfect for a home extension project as this valuable floor space is ideal for adding new rooms such as an extra bedroom, a larger kitchen and an open plan living area where you can entertain guests or spend quality time with family.
Families living in townhouses don’t need to sell up and move to find a bigger place as the size of the family grows. Added bedrooms, bathrooms or living areas can provide exactly what you need to accommodate your family’s expanding needs to continue living on a smaller plot of land comfortably.
Spacemaker can extend and renovate your older home to add modern amenities, increased living space, an improved layout and better functionality, whilst adhering to strict planning permits and building requirements for your heritage listed home.

Be sure to consider what’s needed to improve everyday conveniences and what could be added for that touch of luxury. 

Planning and building permits

The Victorian Building Authority requires a building permit or planning permit, or both in some cases, when undertaking any building work on your property. Many licensed builders handle the entire process when acquiring planning and building permissions for your renovation and extension projects. At Spacemaker Home Extensions, we work with you to ensure we meet the specific needs of your project whilst adhering to the local government regulations.

What to consider for a room extension and renovation project

Whilst smaller DIY interior design and decorating projects can be planned and completed entirely by homeowners, bigger projects with major additions or renovations will likely require support from qualified tradespeople alongside approval from the council.
