Top 5 Home Extension Ideas

Aug 1, 2014

A home extension is a great way to add value to your home in an increasingly competitive Perth market. It is also a great way to add living space without the hassle or expense of moving. If your dream home isn’t your dream home anymore because you have outgrown it and need more space, a home extension can put the “magic” back into your house. Here are five great ideas for extending your home.

Dual Storey Extension

This differs from a standard second storey extension because the second storey is built on top of the extension instead of your original home. That means you get a second storey but you get to keep your original roof. This will provide a lot of extra space while causing almost no intrusion into your lifestyle.

For example, you could add bedrooms and a bathroom on top and a huge family room with an alfresco dining area below.

Get Away From it All

If you need to get away from it all, why not add a retreat to the back of your home? This can be for adults, kids or both. It can be a fairly empty space or it can have couches, a TV, games and books. Whatever you need to relax and renew can go in your new retreat.


If you are tired of waiting for the bathroom, simply build another one. Families often outgrow their bathroom space. An extension allows you to do something about it.

Granny Flat

Especially with zoning changes, you can build a self-contained apartment or “granny flat” on the back of your home. This provides a lot of options. They are great for older children who still live at home and can be rented out if your council allows.

Mix and Match Materials

Lately, it is becoming a trend to build extensions that look nothing like the original home to promote contrast and a modern “look.”
