The Best Home Extensions To Add Value To Your Home

If you’re looking for ways to add resale value to the home you’re currently living in, or perhaps want to add value to an investment property, it’s worth taking your time to scope out the best home extensions out there. While you may not be planning to sell any time soon, these extensions can add a great deal of character to your home while you’re still living in it, allowing you to enjoy your space before profiting from it.

As builders with 25 years of experience to our team’s name, we at HYSPEC know just what sort of home extensions bring in more money when it comes time for you to sell and move. These are our top picks for the best home extensions you can implement to bring a whole new mood to your home.

 

An Elegant Second-Storey Addition

Adding a second story to your home is one of the best home extensions to create additional living space without expanding your property’s footprint – which is especially important if you happen to live on a narrow lot. A second storey extension not only increases the number of bedrooms and bathrooms in your home, but also provides an opportunity for spacious entertainment areas or a cosy family retreat. It’s also a good idea for those who like to entertain, but keep your guests separated from more private rooms such as bedrooms. A well-designed second-storey addition can significantly boost your home’s market value and appeal to potential buyers, too, making it a good choice for those who are interested in resale value.

 

A Stylish Kitchen Extension

They say the kitchen is the heart of a home, so of course an impressive kitchen extension can breathe new life into your property. Expanding the kitchen area allows for modern amenities, increased storage, and a more functional layout to suit the way you cook and live your life. Incorporating popular features such as an island counter, energy-efficient appliances, a large pantry or even a butler’s pantry can make your kitchen a focal point, making your home more appealing to buyers and potential homeowners. And whilst it can be an expensive investment, a modern kitchen is one of the biggest draw cards for those looking to buy a new home.

 

Upgrade To A Luxurious Master Suite

Transforming your master bedroom into a luxurious suite is a valuable home extension that adds a touch of opulence to your property. With a spacious walk-in closet, a tidy ensuite bathroom, and perhaps even a private balcony, this extension can create a relaxing sanctuary that appeals to homebuyers seeking comfort and elegance.

 

Let The Light In With A Sunroom

A sunroom is a versatile extension that brings the outdoors inside, creating a harmonious blend of nature and comfort. This bright and airy space can serve as a cosy reading nook, a tranquil indoor garden, or a relaxing lounge area. Very popular in older home builds, these days buyers will appreciate the added living space and the potential to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors year-round.

 

Consider A Functional Home Office Or Study

With the rise of remote work and the importance of dedicated workspace in a post-COVID era, a purpose-built home office or study is a highly sought-after extension for those who continue with a work from home lifestyle. Creating a functional and stylish workspace with ample storage and natural light can significantly enhance your home’s appeal, especially to professionals and families seeking a flexible and productive environment.

 

Create An Inviting Outdoor Living Space

Creating an inviting outdoor living space is a fantastic way to expand your home’s usable area while enhancing its overall appeal. Australia has such great weather for outdoor living and entertaining, so a well-designed outdoor extension – such as a covered patio or deck – can provide a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living. You can also consider inclusions such as an outdoor kitchen, inviting seating areas, and ambient lighting, all of which can turn your backyard into a paradise for friends and family alike. Future buyers will be drawn to the idea of having a versatile outdoor space for relaxation and hosting gatherings, making an outdoor living space one of the best home extensions for adding value to your house.

 

Build Granny Flat

Building a detached granny flat can be an attractive and practical extension, especially for future buyers who may live with multiple generations under one roof and separated spaces are in everyone’s best interests. This versatile space can serve as accommodation for extended family, guests, or even a potential rental income source. A well-designed granny flat with a bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, and living area can offer a sense of independence while still being close to the main house. This extension idea adds great value to your property and appeals to buyers seeking additional living options.

When it comes to increasing both the functionality and value of your home, well-planned extensions can make a significant difference. As a trusted name in custom home builders, HYSPEC Constructions’ home extensions can elevate your property’s worth and enhance your living experience for years to come.

These guys went above & beyond their duty when constructing our deck. They faced numerous obstacles due to the nature of the old existing deck, and throughout the entire process they were professional, thorough, neat & tidy, and their attention to detail was of the highest standard. We will always highly recommend the team from Hyspec Constructions 😊

Hyspec Constructions & Roofing completely transformed our 1950’s fibre house to a modern and contemporary clad home. The advice and workmanship from Brett, Luke and the team was second to none. Many people have commented that we got it ‘just right’ and this is no small part to Hyspec. Thanks boys, we are so happy with the end result.

We made the best decision to get Hyspec to build our 2 decks and 2 pergolas and an amazing feature stairs to lead us from one deck to the other. Brett, Luke and their team of skilled tradesmen were a delight to have around. From our first meeting I felt at ease with Brett and his vast building knowledge and creative ideas to help us plan our dream backyard. The boys worked with great skill, passion for detail and care to see the job was done right the first time. Brett was flexible, always willing to listen and also ready to suggest any alterations to the plans which would improve the end result as the project progressed. His team were great guys who took pride in their work and always left the site clean at the end of each day. If you are looking for a great local builder in the shire I would recommend Hyspec construction and roofing highly. Thanks Brett, Luke and the Hyspec team, we love our new decks and spa pergolas.

Brett and the boys put up a privacy screen along my deck. Right from the start I got honest advice and, most importantly, the job done when he said he was going to do it and completed on time with a quality finish. The finish is beyond what I expected, all waste materials were neatly cleaned up leaving me to kick back with a cold one and enjoy their hard work. Cheers guys.
