One storey or two: A lot of Britain people keep their housing stock comprises terraced and semi-detached properties with fairly small galley-style kitchens. But in Today’s date people plan to build larger kitchens. Where you have enough space for cooking and place rest of your regular kitchen stuff eg: dishwasher, cookers, washing machine etc. Finally, enough space for eating. For that reason single-storey, rear kitchen extensions are amongst the most common house extension projects.
The extra cost of adding a second storey to your home extension plan may be relatively low. Having the advantage of additional options like adding a guest bedroom or dedicated home office at the back of your home.
