Do You Need a Bigger Home but Don’t Want to Move? Try One of These Home Additions.

Jan 27, 2017

If you need a bigger home but don’t want to go through all the hassle of moving, try one of our home additions from Next Level Extensions. We have more than 70 years combined experience providing these home additions in the Perth area and have a legion of satisfied customers to show for it.

We know what a hassle it can be to find a new home, sell your old home and move all of your belongings. We know what it’s like to change all of your accounts over to a new address. We know what it’s like to leave the old neighbourhood, especially how tough it is on children.

Home Additions for A Bigger Home

That’s why we recommend turning your current home into your dream home. It doesn’t cost nearly as much as you think and you get more bang for your buck with home additions than you do from any other solution in the Perth area. We are going to tell you about two home additions and how to choose between them. Then we are going to tell you how to find the best builder for those additions.

Home Extensions

Home extensions are on the first floor of your home. They provide you with more living space by expanding your home outward. However, you do need to have enough space in your garden to expand your home outward. They also work great for homes in areas that don’t allow you to build upward. A simple check with your council or neighbourhood should be enough to let you know if you are prohibited from building upward.

Another reason a home extension might be the best for you: if you don’t like going up and down stairs. For those who are growing older, this can be a major consideration. For some homeowners, the foundation isn’t strong enough to hold a second floor. In these cases, it is usually less expensive to just build the home extension and forget about the second storey.

Second Storey Additions

Second storey additions are popular because you are building up instead of out. If you live in a scenic area, this can often provide great views, such as a view of the ocean or a nearby lake. Second storey additions are also great for a design in which all of the bedrooms are upstairs and the kitchen and family area are downstairs. This is the most popular design we know of for two-storey homes.

If you don’t have enough room for a ground floor home extension, a second storey addition is going to work perfectly for you. It allows you to have a home extension without choosing between the extension and a nice alfresco living area with a pool. With a second storey addition, you can have them both.

As we mentioned, you will have to check with your neighbourhood and your council to make sure it is OK to build a second floor onto your home.

Other Home Renovations

We also provide other home renovations. A lot of our clients like to get an addition and then renovate the original portion of their home. One of our favourites is to build bedrooms upstairs and then turn the bottom floor into an open floor plan for the kitchen, dining and family rooms. It is also great to add an alfresco living area, especially if you like to entertain guests.

How to Find the Right Builder for Home Additions in Perth

First and foremost, the builder needs to specialise in home additions, extensions and renovations. A lot of builders say they do “home additions” and “home renovations,” but they really specialise in building new homes. While we have a lot of respect for those builders, it isn’t the same as having someone who knows how to work quietly with minimal invasion on your lifestyle.

There are a lot of other things to look for, such as insurance, registration and licensing, but you can stop looking right now if you want to. At Next Level Extensions, we are the best builder of home additions in the Perth area and we have the testimonials to prove it.
