Often, a home extension is considered an expensive luxury, and one which most individuals deem too time consuming or budget busting. However, providing your dwelling with an additional annexe can drastically improve its value, as well as increasing your living space, and consequently your domestic satisfaction. Forget spending all of your money on bricklayers and architects, we’ve collated 7 easy ideas to extend and improve your home with ease. From glass walls to handy outdoor sheds, there are numerous options, which are sure to enlarge your abode, and avoid breaking the bank!

So come with us, while we check out some of these innovative and stylish options below…

1. Terracotta tiles meet glazed walls

Simple and inexpensive, this example takes terracotta ceramic tiles, and combines them with an outdoor conservatory-style space. With walls of pine wood, and zinc shingles for the roofing, this would be perfect as an all-weather retreat, or a space to house a guest bedroom.

2. A new glass conservatory

What better way to breathe new life into your home than with a gorgeous exterior conservatory? Boasting floor-to-ceiling glazing, this architect-designed all-weather room is perfect rain, hail or shine! The best part, this type of room is far less expensive than a full-blown extension, and provides ample space for relaxing, entertaining and more…

3. An outdoor retreat for balmy evenings

This timber design from World Garden is wonderful for extending the living room, offering another space for the family. Easily converted into a space bedroom, home office or games room, the structure is perfect no matter the time of year.

4. Extend upwards!

Instead of extending outwards why not extend upwards? Ideal for those who live in a cramped apartment, a small mezzanine is often a great solution to needing more space.
