Front House Extensions FAQs

Do I need planning permission for a front extension?

Not always! Extensions Unlimited are experts in Permitted Development regulations. In many cases, single-storey front extensions up to 3 metres deep can be built without formal planning permission. We’ll guide you through the extension process to ensure your dream extension is achievable.

Single storey or double storey? Which is right for me?

Both offer fantastic living space, but your choice depends on your needs and budget. A single storey extension creates a seamless flow to your existing ground floor, ideal for expanding kitchens, living rooms, or adding a ground-floor bedroom. A double storey extension maximises space, giving you extra rooms upstairs like bedrooms, home offices, or even a luxurious master suite. Our experts can discuss your options and help you decide the perfect fit.

How much does a front extension cost?

Costs vary depending on size, materials, and complexity. However, at Extensions Unlimited, we offer competitive prices and transparent quotations. We’ll provide a detailed breakdown of all costs before you commit, so there are no surprises down the line.

Will a front extension make my house look odd?

Absolutely not! Our experienced architects and designers create beautiful, cohesive extensions that complement your existing home’s style. We offer a wide range of materials and finishes to ensure your extension seamlessly blends in, enhancing your home’s curb appeal.
