Smart Second Storey Additions Ideas

When it comes to Australian homeowners, building extensions remain a popular way of adding extra space, especially second storey additions. And, choosing to add a second storey extension rather than extending the main floor is for some very good reasons.

To help you understand why second storey additions are a great choice to add space in your home, building extensions and home renovations Brisbane company – Urban Scene Construction – has come up with the following smart second storey additions ideas:

  1. Children’s Floor

Building second storey additions for children isn’t only practical but is actually very common and popular among Australians. The reason for this is that, as they grow older, each kid will need a separate bedroom with a desk and a large enough wardrobe. Plus they will need a separate bathroom on the floor and space where they can hang out with friends and have some privacy. 

  1. Parents’ Retreat

On the other hand, usually depending on the number of kids they have, parents decide to use the second storey extension as their personal retreat. This allows them to create a spacious master bedroom with a spa-like ensuite bathroom, a walk-in closet, and a balcony where they can enjoy their morning coffee. Also, as a result of the pandemic, many choose to include a home office upstairs where they can get away from the noise in the main living area.

  1. The Bedrooms Floor

Here’s yet another popular idea when adding a second storey extension, especially for those who prefer having their children’s bedrooms close to the master bedroom. This is quite common in families with toddlers and younger children or families expecting a baby. By doing so, parents can rest assured that their precious ones are away from doors or any dangers they can find in the kitchen.

  1. Added Street Appeal

By making your home renovations project focus on a second storey extension, you’ll immediately get an added street appeal. The truth is, when someone looks at your home from the street, the second storey creates a bigger impact and greater first impression. This may be extremely beneficial if you try to sell your home someday. Without a shadow of a doubt, a second storey extension may increase the value of your home remarkably.

  1. Self-Contained Unit

Finally, adding a second storey extension to function as its own self-contained unit is also a popular choice. Namely, multigenerational homes are on the rise in Australia and therefore such families need a separate unit for the grandma/ grandpa. This solution comes with its benefits: children having peace of mind that their elderly parents are safe and close in case of emergency and everyone has the privacy needed.

The bottom line, there are many second storey additions ideas worth checking out! Choose the one that best suits your family and contact the ultimate home renovations Brisbane company – Urban Scene Construction.
