Home extensions allow you to expand rooms or add new rooms to your house. These can be deluxe bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, home offices, pool houses or more. Extensions are great for adding value to your property and helping to create your dream home. Undertaking a home extension can be an easier and less costly alternative to moving house.

What is a home extension?
A home extension is an additional section built onto an existing property. It extends the floor size of the property. A home extension utilises unused property space to expand an existing room or add a new room to the property.
How do you design a home extension in Perth WA?
To design a home extension, you should consult a qualified architect or designer. They are able to draw up plans for your extension that can be used for the build. They help you conceptualise your plans for both the interior and the exterior of the home extension. You should only attempt to design your own extension if you have the necessary experience or qualifications.
Granny Flats WA has qualified architects and draftsmen to help you create an extension that works well with your home.
What are some ideas for a home extension in Perth WA?
Home extensions are versatile and can accommodate many building ideas. A home extension can build out an existing room in the house. Potential ideas are a larger kitchen, living area or an alfresco dining area. Home extensions may include entirely new rooms such as bedrooms, offices or hobby rooms.
Do you need approval to build a home extension in Perth WA?
You must acquire the necessary approvals to build a home extension in Perth. These include council approval and building certification. Council approval varies depending on your local council and their requirements. The designer and builder you are hiring to work on your extension will be aware of these. They will often take care of the paperwork for you.
How big can a home extension be in Perth WA?
Home extensions utilise existing space on your property. This means you are primarily limited by the available space you have on your lot. You must build according to code and ensure your structures keep an adequate distance from fencing and neighbour boundaries.
Do I need to tell my neighbours about my home extension?
You must inform your neighbours if your extension gets close enough to their property. This means close enough to the border between your two properties or below ground and approaching the foundation of their property. Check with your local council for the appropriate boundary rules.
Can home extensions add property value?
Home extensions usually increase the value of your property. They can potentially add rooms and features that make your property more desirable. They also increase the floor space of the property. A home extension can allow a property to go from a two bedroom, one bathroom to a three bedroom, two bathroom. This significantly raises the value.
Which home extensions add the most value to your property?
Bedrooms with ensuites are the home extensions that add the most value to your property. They are followed by kitchens and living areas, which also add significant value.
