Cost Effective Home extension ideas

Smart home extension ideas that won’t send you broke.

Now more than ever, life is forever changing. Do you find yourself needing a quiet, secluded office now that you are working from home? Maybe your family is growing and you need to extend your house by adding an extra bedroom.  Has the living area in your home become ‘just too small’ for your likes or needs?

These are but a few of the reasons that can start you thinking about home extension ideas. Whatever your reason is, you no longer have to restrict your thinking to run of the mill ideas. You can gain a lot more than extra space by thinking a little more outside of the box.

7 possible home extension ideas

In this article, we look at just some of the ideas that may inspire you to start your own house extension project. These include:

  • Garage Conversion
  • Indoor-Outdoor Living
  • Loft Living
  • Split-Level Home Extensions
  • Bedroom Living
  • Outdoor Living
  • Conservatory Living

Garage Conversion

Are you really making the most out of the space your garage offers?  Converting your garage is among the most economical of home extension ideas.  It may take some effort to convert your garage to liveable standards but, as the structure is already built, you’ve already eliminated one of the largest costs encountered during most extension projects. That empty garage could become a study, a separate work or living space or even a bedroom that could rented out for extra income.  A great idea given the current rental demand in Brisbane and surrounds.

Indoor-Outdoor Living

Can’t decide between a living room extension or the addition of a covered patio area? Who’s to say that you can’t do both? With the installation of bi-fold doors, your existing living room can be opened up to beauty of the great Brisbane outdoors. Raining, cold or windy; simply pulling the doors closed will still allow you enjoy the outdoor views. Bi-fold doors can be used in many different areas. For example, to open to a sunroom, outdoor kitchen or out to a patio, Bi-fold doors should definitely be on the radar when looking at possible indoor-outdoor home extension ideas.

Loft Living

Have you ever thought about how many unused square meters you have available in your home that are sitting right above your head? No – well add this one to your list of home extension ideas. Rather than incur the expense related to a house extension, why not consider converting your available roof loft space.  You would be surprised to see how much area is useable even a quite a small loft area. Your roof space could become the perfect home office or spare bedroom. You can make your loft extension more inviting and cheerful by adding skylights or windows if suitable. If you have a sloping roof, use the areas with less head space for storage, seating or both combined.

Split-Level Home Extensions

You want to expand your home but you are thinking ‘how do I do this if my block is on a slope?’  There are no hard and fast rules that say your house needs to be on the same level. Many new possibilities arise when you start considering different types of split-level home extension ideas. A sunken living room is just one example; a separate cosy space defined by just a few steps that lead down to an extra area of living space.

Bedroom Living

We all love our bedrooms but why do we have to just sleep in them? If your home extension ideas involve your bedroom, put some thought into other ways your space could be used. Imagine spending some nice quiet time during your day enjoying your bedroom space without feeling like you are locked in a box.  As an example, opening up your bedroom out to a patio area will give you a more spacious area to relax. You could even indulge yourself by adding a spa bathroom to your bedroom.

Outdoor Living

Our Brisbane climate is perfect for the outdoor living lifestyle. Home owners are realising that an outdoor extension can be more than purely a adding a roof to patio. Why not semi-enclose, fully enclose or even combine the two styles when your home extension ideas are focused on your patio? Many outdoor extensions can be designed to blend seamlessly with your home’s interior.

Conservatory Living

For home extension ideas that will suit both modern and traditional homes, why not consider the addition of a conservatory. A glass conservatory can be attached to the end or side of your house.  Its optimal position would be determined by the orientation of your property in relation to the sun.  Conservatories allow you to take advantage of our beautiful Brisbane daylight while enjoying the relaxed indoor space they provide.
