Of course, having a home extension completed during the winter period can be a bit of trouble, but when you’re planning a renovation or remodel specifically to be used during the wintertime, you’ve found the jackpot!
After all, there are some very unique and useful home extensions that you’ll get the most out of during the colder months, and it’s time you knew about them.
So, we’ve collected a quick list of such extensions below. If Christmas is going to get busy for you this year, or you’ve got a lot planned for the future, be sure to look into them.
A Basement Room
If you have some space underneath your house, or you’ve got a basement already, it might be perfect for Christmas time to have it converted. Turn your basement into another room, and give yourself a bit more space to work with over the festive season, and then use it as a simple spare room (or storage space) for the rest of the year-round!
Another bedroom would work well down there, in case you have family coming round for Christmas, or if you’d like to build a separate dining room for the big Christmas dinner, this would be perfect too. Or maybe you can have a family room built down there, away from your living or TV room upstairs, to open presents and take plenty of photos on Christmas morning.
Covering Your Garden
A covered garden is a great way to get out during the wintertime without having too much trouble from the elements around you. If you can put a roof over your porch, or have a patio with a secure and sturdy awning in place, you’re going to be sheltered in a winter wonderland!
Be sure to look into the roofing services in your area, to see if you could get your garden covered as soon as possible. Rather than simply setting up an awning or gazebo yourself, it’ll hold up a lot better (and add a bit more value to your home!) if you have a wooden/slatted structure erected in its place. You’ll get used out of it all year round for years to come!
And of course, getting a conservatory built means you can turn an extension just outside your house into a real slice of winter paradise. It can be warm and cozy in there, and yet, you can watch as the rain or snow falls outside, and be surrounded by a blanket of white noise from the outside elements.
And when the summer rolls back around, well, you’ll have a great place to act as a little greenhouse for whatever kind of plants you’ve been meaning to grow!
If you’re meaning to add an expansion onto your house, be sure to consider these ideas first. They’ll be the most useful to you during the winter period, and you’ll still be guaranteed to get bags of use out of them during the months afterward!
