So you are thinking of extending your home? Fantastic! No idea where to start? You are not alone…
Is it going to be a single or double storey extension? Glazed, render, brick? Sliding or folding doors? What about an extension with a glazed roof that will bring more daylight to your north side kitchen? Does it include an additional bathroom or extends your living area? So many questions… so easy to get lost!
Need house extension ideas? Here are some inspirational pictures of house extensions, that Design for Me team has collected from architects registered on our website.
House extension by Tom, architect based in London. This sleek, modern extension maximizes the kitchen area and draws light in using glazed folding doors. We love the striking form in render at first floor too.
A similar house extension idea to the one above, by architect Tom, London. In this case he used sliding doors which can easily let you enjoy a warm evening outside on the sofa!
Matt, architect in London. A subtle approach, using brick to be sympathetic and tie in with the existing house. Folding doors and the continued use of brick helps to connect the dining area to the garden!
Architect Rebecca used folding doors in this brick wall extension too. It also lightens kitchen and dining areas!
A nice and simple painted render extension using wooden framed sliding doors which nicely compliments the garden fencing and decking. Project architect Mark, Manchester.
Sharon, architectural designer in Watford, London. Light and spacious design using a wide opening coupled with a skylight. We also love the continuation of timber flooring, bringing the outside in.
By Ted, London. Fully glazed house extension idea used for dining. Who wouldn’t enjoy a late dinner under the starry sky?
If you don’t like to be glazed, here are some examples of wooden extensions. Scroll down to see more inspiration!

Hopefully this has inspired you to think about materials and the look of the extension externally, whether it’s glass, bricks, wood or render (or a subtle combination).
But of course, you’ll mainly see it from the inside (thanks to the Great British climate!). So, here are some beautiful examples of interiors to inspire you further!

Extensions can be also used for a cosy ‘Snug’ area. Relax your feet in fluffy carpet and enjoy a good book! Architect Amy, London.
