House Extensions in Medway
Garage Conversions | Signs You Need New Living Space

Do you find yourself daydreaming about extra living space on an increasingly frequent basis? There’s nothing new about planning out dream home improvement and development work in your mind. However, if you’re making concrete plans about habitable space that you haven’t even built yet, it’s highly likely you’ve already outgrown your current Medway house. Maybe you’re making a more permanent switch to working from home. Or perhaps you have a growing family and accumulated possessions from a life well lived.

At H & R Building, we specialise in large-scale projects like house extensions and garage conversions. But we aren’t just building contractors – we’re also proven refurbishment builders too.

As such, we’re the perfect choice if your ideal solution to a lack of space centres on the ‘improve, don’t move’ concept. With our expertise, you can enjoy the benefits of additional living or working space, and all while staying in your much-loved home and neighbourhood.

But what are the signs that indicate you need to invest in an extension, conversion or refurbishment?

3 Signs You Need More Habitable Space

Your Belongings Don’t Have a Home

Are you consistently finding items in unexpected places? Like shoes in the bedroom? Or books in the kitchen? When items pop up in surprising places, it’s usually a sign that they don’t have their own designated space. In turn, this points to a lack of available storage in your Medway home. With no room to spare in cupboards or on shelves, possessions tend to just drift around.

It’s little surprise, then, that purpose-built internal storage is a key aspect of house extensions and garage conversions. Likewise, homeowners often ask our refurbishment builders to prioritise features like shelving when reimagining existing spaces.

As building contractors, you can rely on us for a bespoke storage solution tailored to your design aspirations and lifestyle requirements. We don’t just create that all-important new space, we also reduce clutter elsewhere in your home too.

You Have More Than One Multi-Purpose Room

Let us immediately clarify – there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a versatile space that fulfils several needs, especially with smaller dimensions. However, you should aim to achieve this through design, not circumstance. If you have various rooms whose functional lines have blurred, it’s almost certainly a sign that space is at a premium.

For example, dining tables across Medway, and the UK, have become makeshift home offices. This then has a knock-on effect. With no space on the dining table, you may have no other choice but to eat elsewhere. In turn, you may find it harder to entertain friends and family because everyone must cram into the living room. With the possibility of playing children in the mix, this same space will likely be too noisy for talking as well.

House extensions and garage conversions are both great for spreading people around a larger area. Be it in an extra bedroom, a new home office or a children’s playroom, a clearly defined new room can make a world of difference.

You Need a Better Work/Life Balance

As building contractors and refurbishment builders, we have become familiar with the topic of working from home. If you’ve decided to make a permanent transition away from the office, you need more than a temporary solution. This means a dedicated working environment tailored around your needs.

We work closely with you to create a professional office that caters to your tastes. Yes, your new space is for work, but it’s also part of your Medway home. You should feel comfortable in it and actively want to spend time there.

Of equal importance, house extensions and garage conversions used as an office provide a clear boundary between your home and working environments. This promotes a much healthier work/life balance.
