With more than 70 years combined experience in providing home additions to Perth area homeowners, we have become an authority on the subject. But it doesn’t take an authority to know that home additions are helping a lot of Perth homeowners maximise their homes.
Home additions add sorely needed living space to Perth homes that are seemingly built smaller with each passing year. You can easily double your practical living space with a home addition. This not only maximises your space, but it maximises your ability to have a great lifestyle in your current home without moving.
There are two basic kinds of home additions: home extensions and second storey additions.
Home extensions are built on the ground floor. They are great for people who don’t want to build upward or can’t build upward. Some neighbourhoods don’t allow homeowners to build up. Some who are getting older or have handicapped family members want to keep all of their rooms on the first floor.
If you want to build out, you need to be on enough land that you don’t lose your entire garden. This leads us to our next home addition.
Second Storey Additions
Second storey additions are for people who would rather build upward. This is a great option for many reasons. If you live in a scenic neighbourhood, it can give you some great views. Second storey additions also make sure that you don’t have to choose between garden space or swimming pool space and more living space. It leaves plenty of room for a nice alfresco living area outside.
Second storey additions also give Perth homeowners the option to use a mainstay of modern design: bedrooms upstairs and an open floor plan downstairs for all of the common family areas, such as the living room, family room, kitchen, dining room and even a nice alfresco living area.
