Garden offices increasingly popular 'extension' option

Extending living space has become increasingly attractive to Britain’s homeowners over the past couple of years, according to new findings from Sainsbury’s Home Insurance. Its report indicates that extensions to the rear and side of properties have been the most popular kind of residential extension over the past 24 months, with almost a third of people who have extended their homes having opted for one.

But the full list makes for interesting reading. Conservatories are the second most popular residential extension (29%), followed by loft extensions (15%), garage conversions (11%) - and then comes the construction of an outbuilding such as a garden room or home office (5%).

A separate poll of builders by Sainsbury's shows that bigger kitchens and kitchen diners were the most frequent reason cited for a home extension, and the second most popular intended use was for additional bedrooms - again, there was considerable interest in home offices which came in third.
