5 modern rear extension ideas


Our home is our castle, that place where we feel safe and comfortable. If you have adult children who need to move back home, or your elderly relatives need to move into your property, then a rear extension will allow you to remain in your own home. Here we share 5 modern rear extension ideas with you.

1. Extend the kitchen

One of the biggest reasons that home owners choose to have a rear extension is to extend the kitchen space. This is always hugely advantageous when the property has a small galley kitchen. The modern rear extension can easily incorporate a large kitchen space with doors that lead directly out into the garden.

2. A new bathroom

If your adult children are moving back home and you only have one bathroom, then creating an additional bathroom is always a good idea. Why not build a rear extension that can be used as a large wet room with a separate WC. This would also be helpful if you have elderly relatives who cannot climb stairs.

3. A family room

Why not use your rear extension to create additional living space? If you only have one living room, then the rear extension could be used as a family room. This could be the space where the kids sit and watch the TV, or play on the games console, leaving the main living room for you.

4. The kitchen diner

Do you love entertaining? Do you live in your kitchen? If so, then why not build a rear extension to create a large kitchen diner? This could take up the entire rear of the property to create a large open plan space. Many homeowners also opt to knock down internal walls to make the kitchen diner even bigger.

5. The double rear extension

If your adult children move back to the parental home then a double-storey rear extension could be used as an alternative to the granny flat. The rear extension could be fully contained with its own kitchen and bathroom.
