    How do I use the space?

    Don’t need a bigger kitchen? Why not consider these other options?

    Flexible living room
    Keeping the new space flexible means it will appeal to a wider cross section of buyers when it’s time to sell, so add a sofa and create a haven for chilling out.

    Children’s playroom
    Free your main living space of the kids’ toys and gear by making the extension a place for the children to play, watch TV and do their homework.

    Laundry room
    With a side extension usually next to the kitchen, a laundry room is a great option as it means you can move the appliances out of the kitchen – creating more space in there.
