Side Return Extension

What is a side return extension?

A side return extension stretches your home into the alleyway at the side of your house and is very typical on Victorian or other types of period properties. Side return extensions are often a relatively small extension, but it can have a great impact on the look and feel of your home. Sometimes clients combine a side return extension with a rear extension to create what is called a wrap-around extension. Either way, a side return extension is fantastic for housing a larger kitchen and dining area.

Rear Extension

What is a rear extensions?

As the name suggests, rear extensions extend out from the back of your property and are typically carried out on properties where there is no side return option or on detached properties. They extend the size of your house and can usually include a dining or living space in addition.

A rear extension is a perfect option if you want to create that dream kitchen with an island, as well as achieve an open plan living space. Open plan rooms are not only great for families, but they are also ideal for those that love to entertain.
