Everyone wants to live in a beautiful house that provides maximum comfort and enjoyment. Most homeowners won’t shy away from investing in a house extension to make their house more aesthetically pleasing, more comfortable, and more fun to live in which is why investing in an extension will go a very long way.

You can have a look at some of our beautiful home extensions here: www.customoutdoorliving.com.au/home-extensions-melbourne/

A property can be extended towards the front, side, back or even upwards, depending on the availability of free space. In Melbourne, it’s very commonly done towards the rear since this is where free space is available in most homes. We only specialise in ground floor extensions.

Renovations of any kind require a substantial amount of investment. That’s why it is important that you research properly before undertaking any kind of building work.

If you’re stuck for some ideas, here are some helpful tips to get things going.

Consider Building a Sunroom

A sunroom is a good option for a rear home extension. Sunrooms allow you to enjoy the full use of your garden regardless of what season it is. Whether it’s summer or winter, you’ll capture the suns’ rays all year around.

Sunrooms can also be used as a playroom, study or dining room. Adding a sunroom to your house means you’ll immediately benefit from the extra living space it provides. It makes for a very rewarding investment and if you’ve got the space it’s well worth considering.

Enclosed Outdoor Patio or Deck

An enclosed outdoor patio or deck is another design idea for a rear house extension. You shouldn’t discount the idea of creating an outdoor room by enclosing a patio or decking. It’s a great way to increase the value of the house and enhance its aesthetic quality as well.

You can enclose a patio or deck in several ways. One way to enclose the area is with a screened porch. You can also just add a roof to the porch leaving the sides open to the surrounding garden. This is an incredibly appealing option that allows you to enjoy the outdoors all year round.

Add Extra Living Room Space to Your House

Converting available space into an additional living room is a smart way to utilize the extra space at the back of your property. In this way, younger members of the family will remain entertained as you cater to guests in the main living room. Alternatively you can use this space for entertaining your guests or simply kick up your feet and relax after a hard days’ work.

Installing sliding doors to an extension can really transform the extension and open it up in a way that smaller windows simply can’t do. During the summer season, you can pull back the sliding doors and vice versa when the conditions turn colder.
