Double Up Your Space: The 5 Benefits of a Double-Storey Extension

Many homeowners hesitate to add a double-storey extension to their homes due to the perceived costs and inconveniences of the renovation process.


But the benefits of a double-storey extension outweigh the downsides. The extension increases your property’s value and provides more space and comfort for your growing family, to list some benefits.


5 Advantages of Having a Double-Storey Extension

  • Excellent view.
  • Increased property value.
  • Added repairs on the first floor.
  • No need to adjust the outdoor space.
  • More space and privacy for a growing family.


Excellent view


The stunning view that a double-storey addition offers is among its most remarkable benefits. You can take in your surroundings in a new way from a higher vantage point. You can outfit your second floor by adding a balcony with furniture, potted plants, and seats to create a welcoming and comfortable outdoor space. 


Increased Property Value


Investing in a double-storey extension will not only provide your home with more space and functionality, but it is also financially rewarding. 


Aside from the fact that it can increase your house’s overall value, you can also rent it out to earn a passive income. Meaning your investment will pay off in the long run when you decide to sell your property.


Added repairs on the first floor


Adding a double-storey extension to your home also means making repairs and improvements to your first floor to build a foundation for the second floor. Extending your home upwards can address any structural or functional issues on the first floor, saving you money.


For example, if your first floor has an outdated layout, you can take this opportunity to update the wiring and plumbing, change the layout, or install modern fixtures and fittings. It will update your first floor and ensure it’s safe for your family.


No Need to Adjust the Outdoor Space


Among the major benefits of a double-storey extension is that it doesn’t require outdoor space adjustments. 


It’s unlike ground-level extensions that require modifications to your outdoors to accommodate the extension space. You must remove your plants or reduce the area of your backyard. With a double-storey extension, you only have to maximise your home’s existing structure. 


More space and privacy for a growing family


As your family grows, your need for space and privacy increases. A double-storey extension provides both of these things, improving the quality of life for everyone in the household.


Whether you need more bedrooms, bathrooms, or living areas, a second floor can provide additional space, giving your family more room to move around. It will also reduce clutter and congestion in common areas.


A second floor will increase each family member’s privacy. You can create more private spaces, such as bedrooms or an office. It will reduce noise and disturbances.


Importance of Hiring the Right People


Hiring the right building company will ensure your project will be done correctly. 


Here is what to look for when hiring a building company for a double-storey extension:
