Double storey extensions – how to go full height in style


Double storey extensions can improve interiors to make homes work for the way we live now. They can allow you to create an open-plan living space, larger kitchen and dining room, home office, extra bedrooms, bathrooms or en-suites. With multi-generational living on the increase, it could be a space for elderly parents, or children coming back from university.

Extending and reconfiguring means you can streamline the rooms to get a better flow and create a better connection to the garden. Creating new rooms that fully integrate into your home is the key to a successful double storey extension. The living areas of the house downstairs should be accessible from the main entrance hall and rooms such as the kitchen and dining area should be placed near to each other.
