The most important thing to consider when looking to extend your home is the functionality of the space. Are you wanting to open up a kitchen or living space, add an additional bedroom or bathroom, or perhaps you are pining after a utility room? Your consultation with a Refresh Renovations Consultant and extension consultant will help identify your requirements and build a picture of what can be achieved. It is particularly important to consider that properties in Brighton and Hove, as well as the surrounding areas, may be listed and thus require additional permissions on top of the standard planning applications and building regulations.
Single-storey extensions give you the opportunity to add skylights, increasing the amount of natural light available, whilst opting for a double-storey extension could allow you the opportunity to add a master bedroom and en-suite combination. The options are endless with extensions, so speak to your Refresh Renovation Consultant to book in a free, no obligations consultation to discuss your options.
Permitted development rights allow you to extend your home without requiring planning permission as long as your home extension adheres to some specific conditions.
Single-storey extensions can be added to a property under permitted development as long as they fit within the size restrictions and are in keeping with the existing finish of the property. Permitted development will likely not apply to properties in conservation areas and areas of outstanding natural beauty, and will almost certainly not apply if your property is a listed building.
Even if your extension falls under the permitted development rights, you will still require architectural drawings, and building regulations approval. Your Refresh Renovations Consultant will take care of all planning requirements for your project before any work commences, ensuring your project is completed on-time and on-budget.
The costs associated with a home extension vary greatly depending on the size and requirements of your extension, however, a ballpark figure would be between £1,200 and £2,000 per square metre* for a single-storey, basic build cost. Adding a complex extension, such as a second floor will cost significantly more.
No matter your budget, the Refresh Renovations Brighton and Worthing team will take all considerations into account and provide you with a detailed price estimate before moving to build.
*Please note that these are rough estimates only. For a high-level indication of what your unique extension will cost, the Refresh Process is designed to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.
