When it comes to home extensions, one of the most important decisions that you will make is your floor plan. The layout of your house will have a great impact on how you live in your home and the way your home makes you feel. Considerations should be made for the orientation of sunlight into the home, everyone loves a nice sunny spot to enjoy your coffee on a winters morning. The views available from each window should be taken into consideration, in fact a good view is shown to increase your home’s equity! Consideration should be given to the desired lifestyle you want from your home. Do you like to entertain outdoors using your outdoor kitchen or pizza oven? Do you want a single level home flowing into a nice flat backyard & pool for the kids? Do you want all bedrooms upstairs & living areas downstairs? To make things easy for you, here are five things you can ask from the home extension builder for your Sydney home to help you choose a plan that can work for you and your family.
What Kind of Additions are Possible in Building Floor Plans?
Single-storey homes are usually suitable for families with younger children and for people who are in the early phases of their family life. However, as everyone in the family gets older, children want their own privacy and space, and won’t want to share space with their siblings. A multi-storey or second-storey extension can give every family member their own room and space, making the house more private than a single-storey one. If you don’t want first or second floor additions to your Sydney home, you can always extend the ground floor.
Which Floor Extension Plan Works Best for Your Lifestyle?
The size of your family and the ages of your children should be taken into consideration when choosing the layout for a home extension. Families with young children will like to have bedrooms close to the Master Bed, whereas those families with older children will likely want a bit more privacy and space from each other & this needs to be considered with any floor plan and home extension.
Is It Possible to Add Outdoor Living Spaces?
Whether it’s a Pool, covered Patio, Bifold doors seamlessly connecting indoors & out or an Outdoor Kitchen & Pizza Oven, the floor plan of many Aussie homes includes Renovations & Extensions to the Outdoor Spaces. Our experience Renovating homes on the Northern Beaches has given us great insight into what works for Australian families and we can tell you that these outdoor renovations are some of the most loved features we create for our clients!
What sort of functional space can we incorporate?
Utility spaces don’t sound too exciting but in reality they are some of the most attractive & life changing spaces we create for our clients! You can add Mud rooms to slip the kids’ school bags away neat & tidy, Kitchens to suit your favourite style with a Butlers Pantry to hide all the appliances, a beautiful new laundry with plenty of space to fold clothes on the Stone Benchtops and sleek bathrooms with the latest style in tiles & finishes. These areas are functional and frequently used spaces but can also be the most beautiful spaces to spend time in after your Home Renovations.
Can Storage Space Be Extended?
Consideration given to storage space during your Renovation planning is a wise move. Our experience renovating homes for more than 20 years has led us to learn that extra Storage is one of the most desired assets to add to your home. Maybe you are after Built in Robes to the Bedrooms, A Walk In Robe to the Master Bedroom, Mudrooms off the entry, or Attic Storage accessed from an Attic Ladder. A renovation & Extension Builder can suggest storage features that will change your life when planning ideas for your Sydney residence.
