Has your family outgrown your current home? If you’re looking to create more space, one of the best solutions is BUILDING UP! Refresh and its team of Melbourne second storey extension consultants can help you extend your home so that you don’t have to move. It can even be cheaper to add a second floor to your home rather than buying a larger house.
If you’d like to create some much needed breathing room while simultaneously adding value to your property, reach out to the Refresh Renovations Melbourne team. We’ll answer all your questions and provide you with everything you need—from initial designs to the final build.
We’ve compiled the most common questions below:
For homeowners who have settled down in Melbourne, the thought of moving to a new house in a new area is often not even a consideration as it involves moving away from their established connections and enrolling their children into new schools. Therefore, a growing trend has been to add a second floor to their existing property.
Not only can this nearly double the available space of your home, homeowners in Melbourne think of it as a great investment. You can do so without impeding on your yard space or extending your property closer to your neighbours.
In Victoria, the biggest attraction of extending up is the ability to customise the entire second storey to fill the homeowner’s unique needs. You have the option to decide how many extra bedrooms you want, whether you’d like to add a second living space, a home office, or even a theatre or a gym! With the options being nearly limitless, the Refresh Melbourne team can advise you on the latest trends, financial considerations, and design factors.
...and anything else you can think of!
Based on the Refresh Melbourne team’s completed projects, we estimate* a second storey extension to cost between $1,800 per square meter to upwards of $3,200 per square meter.
However, note that this cost will fluctuate depending on your property’s land area, whether you are looking to build a full second floor or a partial addition, as well as other factors such as your home’s age, the materials you choose, and your chosen design.
No matter your budget, a Refresh Renovations second storey extension consultant can help you achieve your desired result.
