Why are side return extensions so popular in South London?

Last Updated on : 8th November 2018

Side return extensions continue to be big news in the Nappy Valley area right now, but why?  These relatively small extensions stretch your home into the alleyway area at the side of the house, perfect for period properties of which there is an abundance of in South London.  Here are our top 5 reasons to choose a side return extension:

1. Perfect for socialising

Well, they’re fantastic for creating large, open plan kitchen diners, creating spacious social areas within the home, expanding the space for a family to live in without the hassle of moving. It’s a brilliant opportunity to redesign your kitchen to form a luxurious space that will add value to your home.

2. They use dead space

With garden space at a premium in London, many homes either do not have the space to extend to the rear or do not want to reduce the size of their garden. Instead, a side return extension uses the dead space to the side of the home, allowing London families to have the best of both worlds. A side return extension can also open up corridors and other ‘dead’ areas of the house to create one large open space.

3. Light and airy

Because a side return extension runs along the length of your existing room you can use skylights to flood the space with natural sunlight. Rather than ending up with a beautifully lit extension and a darker room beyond, you’ll instead have a space that’s wonderfully lit all the way through.

4. It’s a relatively small job

Because a side return extension isn’t very big in terms of size, it’s also quite small in terms of the scale of the job. Although the size of each individual project will vary, a side return extension can be a great option if you don’t want the building work to run on and on.

5. It’s cost effective

Because of the smaller size of a side return extension, this also means that it’s a relatively cheaper and more cost effective job to carry out than a rear or wrap around extension. So you’re gaining space and really maximising the value you’re adding to your home.

If you think a side return extension may be the perfect addition for your home, contact the London home extension building experts, Simply Extend, on 0800 917 7571 or visit our website.
