Are you sick and tired of the day-to-day frustrations of simply not having enough space? Have you Marie Kondo’d your house so many times that the few items left all spark joy, and you still don’t have enough space?

Whether you’re dealing with whining children because they have to share bedrooms, you don’t have space for your guests or you want to build extra entertaining areas, there are many reasons a second storey extension could the solution. At Total Lifestyle Builders, we’re experienced in building second storey extensions and major home renovations to suit a myriad of client requests. In this blog, we share some of the reasons our clients have chosen to extend rather than moving.

Your family is growing

This is a situation that many of our clients experience. When you first bought your home, you thought two bedrooms and one bathroom would be enough. But as your family grows, you soon realise you’ll need more space – meaning more bedrooms and more bathrooms are a must! But you don’t want to sacrifice your backyard or move the kids to a new suburb and school. What do you do? This is when the benefits of a second storey extension truly shine bright. By choosing to extend your home, you can expand your family’s living space without the stress and financial burden of moving.

Your family needs more space as they get older

The requirements and features of a home often change as a family grows. Whether those requirements are larger bedrooms, an entertainment area, a separate space for the parents or a study zone, a second storey extension can provide the space your family needs. But why should you extend rather than moving? If you extend you can customise the build to create the living spaces your family needs. No more adapting to the current design of a house – extend your house and customise it to suit how your family lives.

You need guest accommodation

If you love your home but there’s hardly enough space to accommodate you and your family, let alone visitors, a second level extension could be the answer. No matter if you are looking to add one guest bedroom or you prefer to shuffle the entire design of your house, a second level extension could work wonders! Choosing a builder who specialises in second level extensions will allow you to open a world of opportunities with your second level extension.
