Thinking of extending but unsure what you can get for your money? These stylish and individual projects were all built within a £40,000 budget (excluding fixtures and fittings), which will give you ideas and inspiration of what’s possible before embarking on your own extension project.
A contemporary lean-to extension
Above: Extending this period farmhouse with a two-storey lean-to has provided the homeowners with a bright, open-plan space. The contemporary glazed extension has given the owners views of nearby moorlands.
A kitchen-diner extension
Below: Creating an open-plan kitchen/diner/living space with a large rear extension has provided a practical, family-friendly space, while two sets of bi-folding doors seamlessly link indoors and out.
Single-storey rear extension
Below: Adding a new dining and living area in a single storey extension, the owners of this home wanted to create a bright and comfortable space. Using five large roof windows completed the design, giving the owners the home they dreamed of.
Adding a side extension
Below: Keen to extend rather than add a conservatory to their five bedroom home, the owners of this 1980s property added a side extension to create a garden room, which merged seamlessly with the outdoor space. Large folding-sliding doors complete the look.
From traditional conservatory to modern extension
Below: Not content with their small, narrow kitchen and adjoining dated conservatory, the owners of this 1960s bungalow replaced both with a light-filled rear extension to incorporate a modern open-plan design.
Below: Updating an Edwardian home with an orangery-style extension, this home now features a beautiful and inviting family-friendly space linking to the garden through bi-folding doors.
Remodel and extension
Below: Plans to knock through the wall between the galley kitchen and dining room would have offered the owners of this 1930s home more space, however still feeling restricted by the layout they added a rear extension at the same time to ensure a cohesion through the kitchen-diner and living space.
