An extremely popular form of single storey extension, this form of home renovation is the type you’ll find in most interior design magazines and lifestyle newspaper supplements. That’s because it beautifully takes in the fashion for the large open-plan dining room, kitchen and seating area, with glass sliding doors to extend the space out into the garden too.


This type of extension gives a house a more communal feeling, with the family able to spend more time together in the one space. At the same time, it will add considerable value to the price of your home.


As the name suggests this type of extension is built onto the back of your property so isn’t usually visible from the front.
