House Extension Types
There are lots of house extension types and within these types, there are lots of variations and different styles. But there are a few general categories that are great places to start when you are considering an extension.
Porches are one of the smallest types of extension and go on the front of a house, although there are some styles that go to the side or back. Some will be covered in while others are simply areas of wall to offer shelter. They don’t need planning permission as long as they have a separate internal door to the house and aren’t heated.
Conservatories are one of the most popular types of extension and come in a wide range of styles including sunrooms, garden rooms and orangeries. All have a varying amount of glazing; some have solid roofs while others have transparent ones. They can be made from UPVC, timber or aluminium.
Single storey extensions can be added to the ground or first floor of a house and are built in the same style as the rest of the property. These are ideal for things like dining rooms, home offices, an additional bedroom or to extend the kitchen.
Two storey extensions increase both levels of the house and can be used for all kinds of purposes. They can only be added to a two storey or higher house so cannot be added to a bungalow.
