The best house extension ideas for every budget

Dalston House Featured

IQ Glass featured in Real Homes article 26 house extensions – best house extension ideas for every budget. Dalston House featured in this article as it’s a great example of a small double-storey extension at the rear of a London townhouse.

Dalston House is a project that is bursting with character. IQ Glass worked with HUT architects to design this extension to a family home. The brief was to create a minimal extension that would maximise light and space. This project includes a double-storey and single-storey extension at the rear of the property.

The article aims to inspire homeowners with project case studies and show what is achievable for different budgets. “A contemporary design with folding-sliding doors, glazed roof lanterns and large floor-to-ceiling glazing units would could £1,800 to “2,200 per m², so on the same budget, the scale of the space may need to be around 23m

There are often many questions about what types of extension come under the permitted development bracket. “Many single-storey side extensions and rear extensions will fall within your permitted development rights, which will help keep costs down somewhat, but it’s always best to check,” said Real Homes.

The article is an insightful read that provides inspiration for many styles of property extension. To read the full article visit the Real Homes website here:
