Where does your extra living space come from?

It's fair to say that the UK is currently in love with home improvements! Whereas a few years ago, outgrowing your home invariably meant upsizing by moving to a new house, many Britons are now taking the "Don't move, improve!" philosophy.

There are many reasons behind the change, including a sluggish housing market and residual effects of the recession, but many people are choosing to stay in their homes, carry out improvements to make their homes work for them again, and add value so that if they choose to move in the future, they can recoup their costs.

There are many articles listing the home improvements that add the most value to your home and there's been a real shift in the last few years. At one point, these articles would list a new kitchen or bathroom as holding the number one spot, but now it's being taken by energy efficiency measures and adding space. With space in the UK coming at a premium, particularly in cities, loft conversions and extensions are where people look to add value.

While we all may want more living space, there are restrictions about converting your loft that mean it's not an option for many people. Finding space for the extra staircase, or enough room to raise the roof level and fire safety regulations all put a barrier in the way of getting more living area. What do you do if you don't want to move but can't extend upwards?

The answer could well lie in your garden. Garden Spaces build self-contained rooms that provide highly versatile living space by putting unused parts of your garden to good use. Designed specifically to fit the space you have available to work with your garden, they're constructed from Structural Insulated Panels to create thermally efficient, warm spaces that are usable all year round, no matter what you want to use them for.

Garden rooms can also be fitted with all mod cons, including power, heating, wi-fi, water and even be fitted with a kitchenette and bathroom to make a single, self-contained living space! Best of all, because SIPs panels can be fabricated off-site, it cuts down on construction time, mess and disruption, allowing you to enjoy your new space more quickly and with a minimum of fuss!

While improving our homes and adding value is at the top of everybody's agenda right now, adding space to the main body of the home isn't always possible; there is another option, however, that could not only give you exactly what your family needs, but could give your home the extra appeal and value when it comes time for you to sell!
