Are you wondering whether you should move location, build a home extension, or do some home renovations? We’re here to help.
People are often looking for alternative ways to refresh and improve their homes rather than having to up-sticks and move. Staying where you are mean less upheaval, hard work, less stress and not paying for the expense of moving.
There are huge benefits to extending or renovating your home.
1. You live in the perfect location
For many people, the perfect home is dependent on location location location. Whether it’s a house by the sea in Palm Beach or Ballina, a Queenslander to a Coastal Hamptons style in Burleigh Heads, or a city pad in Tweed Heads with shops and eateries right on your doorstep.
For others, it’s about being near family and friends or the catchment area of popular schools.
What if you already live in the ideal location? Staying where you are and extending could be the way to go. No disruption to life and it removes the hassle of house hunting and packing to move.
Finding the right home in the right location isn’t as easy as it sounds. You’re often left with two options:
- stay in the location you love and update your house to suit your tastes and needs.
- buy a house in the ideal location and do a home renovation to make it your own.
2. Add value to your home
House extensions are a fantastic way to add value and future proof your home. Not only will an extension provide the extra room you’re looking for, but it also can:
- Add flexibility and a better flow of space
- Increase the size and spec of your home
- Include modern touches and increase the appeal
- Be a great alternative to moving home especially in times of uncertainty
- Make a huge difference in the quality of life
To get the best value, it pays to find an experienced licensed builder. Your extension should be appealing and high quality, not only for you but to attract future buyers. A poorly designed and built extension will go against a good sale.

3. Create your dream home
A house extension means you can tailor the design of your home to your family’s needs. Everything you choose can be bespoke to your requirements with superb finishes.
There’s so much you can do when extending your existing home. An old house can be redesigned and converted into a modern space to feel like new again. Make use of some of the most overlooked and unused rooms in the home. A lot of the time, they are places to store unwanted items and never get looked at again.

4. Additional living space
The most common reason for moving house is the lack of space. The desire to have a bigger property with more room becomes stronger as your family grows and the needs of your family change.
Perhaps you’ve started to work from home and you need an office space? Maybe you’d like a playroom for the kids, or you dream of a large, luxurious kitchen.
Additions and alterations can be made to your existing home. Use your space differently by changing the floor plan to create large-scale, open-plan spaces so all the family can get together. Or, add a second storey Additions to your home for a parent’s retreat or kids’ zone.
