Meet Your Family’s Needs with a Tailor-Made Extension

We are Add A Room, the home extension company Essex property owners recommend. Here are our top ideas for family-friendly house extensions – so you can create a home that works for everyone.

More bedrooms

If you need space for your growing family, then an extension could be the perfect way to add some extra sleeping space for your home. Whether you are thinking of new bedrooms for the children or want to create a new master suite for yourself, an extension will give you all the space you need to sleep soundly.

A playroom

You don’t need us to tell you that kids have a lot of toys, and they can leave a trail of mess in their wake throughout a property. So why not give them a dedicated space to play in? A playroom is a fantastic use for a home extension, as it will allow you to keep all of your children’s toys contained and allow them to play happily in a space that’s all their own. As they grow older, they could even use it as a gaming room or a place to study.

Extra family living space

Do you love spending time together as a family but find that your property doesn’t quite give you the space you need? You’re certainly not alone! So many Essex homeowners choose to add more living space to their property with a house extension. Whether you want a large dining room that’s big enough for those wonderful family dinners, or an informal space where you can hang out and watch a movie, we will work with your needs in mind.


If there’s one thing that you can never have enough of when you are raising a family, it’s storage! So why not use an extension to give you that space? You could have a laundry room that’s big enough to sort clothes in, or a walk-in wardrobe that will help to keep bedrooms tidy. Or perhaps you would love a pantry that, when fully stocked, will be more than enough to keep everyone fed and happy.

Extra bathroom

While having a large family can be a wonderful thing, everyone squabbling over the bathroom in the mornings is something that no one enjoys. So why not add an extra bathroom to your property? This could come in the form of an ensuite attached to an existing bedroom, or an additional family bathroom that everyone can use. Additional bathrooms, along with bedrooms, are very attractive to buyers too – and could add significantly to the value of your home.
