Director of the National Home Improvement Council Andrew Leech said building a conservatory is “one of the easiest ways of improving a property”.
He also highlighted renovating the loft space into rooms as a good method of increasing the size of a domicile.
Many people are staying in their current dwelling and refurbishing it to meet their needs at the moment, the expert remarked, pointing out this involves a “lot less hassle” than moving to another structure.
Particularly expensive extensions should only be performed by individuals who plan to live in the same house for a long period of time, but relatively cheaper ones of around £15,000 will recoup their initial cost “after a few years”, Mr Leech said.
Architect-your home architect Tom Gresford recently argued homeowners can increase the size of their property for £10,000, although the overall expense will depend on what the customer wants.
