easy modular home extension


If you're thinking about expanding your living space, modular home extensions are one of the easiest options on the market. Unlike traditional home extensions that need to be built from the ground up, modular home extensions are pre-fabricated and incredibly easy to fix to your home. In many cases, modular home extensions don't even require planning permission, meaning you can make quick progress with your home renovation from start to finish.


Here at SunSpaces, we believe that everyone should make better use of their outdoor space by installing a modular home extension - that's why we offer such a wide variety of garden rooms and verandas. Our garden rooms offer a more traditional take on a modular home extension, while our verandas provide a less restricted connection between your home and garden.


Creating your dream modular home extension 

The beauty of modular home extensions is that they're pre-fabricated, but that doesn't mean you have to settle for an off-the-shelf solution. Many modular home extension companies offer a very small selection of garden rooms & don't provide you with many options for customisation. That's what makes SunSpaces stand out from the crowd. 


We believe that your modular home extension should be a reflection of your home, garden and personal taste. That's why almost every element of our garden rooms and verandas can be tailored to you. Our team of design experts can work with you to create a bespoke garden structure that suits your home perfectly. 


The benefits of a modular design


1 - Quicker installation times


One of the main reasons that people avoid adding an extension to their home is because they can't stand the idea of their home becoming a building site for months on end. It's true that traditional home extensions can take weeks (if not months) to complete because so much preparation and building work is required. When you opt for a modular home extension, you can shave weeks off your installation time.


Some of our SunSpaces have been installed in as little as 2 days! One of the main reasons we can do this is because most of our SunSpaces do not require any planning permission, so you won't be waiting around for weeks before you get the green light for your project.

2 - Generally cheaper than traditional extensions


As we've mentioned above, there's a lot that goes into installing a traditional home extension. You'll find yourself paying for materials, labour, waste removal... the list goes on. When you choose a modular home extension, you can slash most of those costs dramatically. It's true that modular home extensions like our glass garden rooms appear to be pricier than a brick and mortar extension at first, but when you take the whole picture into account, you might find you save yourself a lot of money in the long run. 


3 - Less mess & less disruption!


Finally, let's talk about mess and disruption. The process of installing a traditional home extension can be messy, especially if you need to dig up the garden to lay foundations. The amount of mess and disruption can make you think twice about extending your home, but there is a better option. Our glass garden rooms do not require foundations to be dug, which means you won't be faced with a sea of concrete and dust when you come downstairs. Our modular garden rooms can be installed while creating minimal disruption and mess within your home. 


So, if you think an easy, modular home extension is the right option for your home, be sure to take a look at our customisable garden rooms & verandas.
