Adding value to your home with an oak frame extension

From simply refreshing the décor through to extending your property, the options are vast.

For those seeking to maximise the potential of their property, an oak extension can hold the key. To make an extension work, it’s important to understand the faults of your current space and the opportunities of the new space.

Is the kitchen too small? Is there a need for a dining space or additional lounge area? What you want from the space, should be at the forefront of your decision when expanding it. Be it an opening area for bi-fold doors to embrace an outside eating space, or to have a place to read, this use will drive the choice and style of your extension.

As the hub of the home, the kitchen can offer the best scope for extending into a beautiful open space that adds value and would be useful to buyers of any stage of their life. But it’s making it a wow space that will give it a unique selling point. Contrast is a great way to achieve this. Rather than trying to keep an extension in keeping with the property’s style such as red brick or stone, giving contrast with an oak frame will add a completely different aspect to the space, but as it’s a natural material, will also complement any style.

Finishing touches such as a lantern set into the roof can create a light space. A pitched roof above shows off the exposed oak rafters and emphasises the room as an extension of the home.

With open plan living and space now more achievable due to better insulated buildings, the possibilities are plentiful. Whether you choose to focus on extending the kitchen or add a brand-new room for entertaining, a natural oak extension gives you the flexibility to create a valuable and highly aesthetic addition to your home.
