Brighton and Hove is one of the most attractive areas in the UK to live, with demand for homes on the market high and prices often even higher! Those who already live in Brighton and the surrounding areas appreciate what a special place it is and so understand how difficult it can be to up sticks and move, even if they are only planning on doing so just down the road. Instead, we’re seeing growing demand for single storey extensions: expanding living spaces outward rather than undergoing the stress and hassle of a full move.
Accessibility is key with bungalows, and maintaining your property as a single storey home may future proof it for your own use, and enable it to stand out from the crowd upon resale.

What are the benefits of single storey extensions for bungalows?
Bungalows are extremely helpful for accessibility purposes but often don’t present opportunities to accommodate growing families and changing mobility needs. Adding a single storey extension to a bungalow can vastly improve the square footage of the property, increasing the value and desirability of the property when you do eventually come to sell it. With the prevalence of converted Bungalows now being the norm, with homeowners mostly converting loft spaces to increase floorplan area, we are seeing a reduction in the percentage of truly accessible bungalows. Extending the living space of your bungalow with a single storey extension may actually enable you to retain the uniqueness of your single storey property and make it more desirable for resale in the future in comparison to a loft converted bungalow.
Exactly how much a single storey extension will cost is dependent on the size, scope and type of extension being built. The Refresh team is able to present a variety of options for your extension based on varying budget levels, so no matter how big or small, don’t be afraid to ask!
Our end-to-end approach in property project management has won Refresh Renovations world-recognised awards and our expertise has seen the completion of thousands of successful extensions and renovations with happy homeowners now enjoying them.
Planning permission rules vary from home to home and area to area, but Refresh Renovations work closely with the Brighton and Hove LPA (Local Planning Authority) : and should permission be required, we will construct a strategic design likely to achieve it and fill out and file all the paperwork for you.
Refresh Brighton and Hove offer bungalow and single storey extension services throughout our namesakes as well as Findon, Goring-by-Sea and other surrounding areas.
Project schedules are dependent on project complexity, but if you have a set deadline, just let us know – we’ll do our best to work to it and will keep you updated on progress throughout.
