Home Extension in London: 6 Tips How To Start

Getting a home extension done is one of the best options you have in London if you don’t want to buy a new property but you are in need of more space. If this is your first home extension project in London, you came to the right place!


Home alteration projects can sound scary and time-consuming, but if you follow some simple steps, your extension journey will be much smoother.


Here are our 6 tips you should know about before you start your home extension journey in London!



1. Do Some Research


As the first step, we recommend doing research on the topic. It is a big advantage if you have some knowledge before you sign up with a construction company.


If you don’t know where to start, we recommend reading our previous articles on the topic:



You can always ask real estate agents or builders to have a clear picture of which extension will add more space and value to your property. If your neighbours have done an extension before, you can ask their opinion on the matter as well.


2. Plan the Budget


Cost is always a factor. The budget depends on a combination of different factors such as size, shape and location.


Extensions in London cost more, but if your property is located in prime areas such as Belgravia, Kensington and Chelsea, Mayfair, Holland Park, Notting Hill etc., it will significantly increase the value of your home, up to 20%.


For a more detailed budget, we recommend contacting a turnkey construction company that can give you a quote for both the planning and the build phases.
