Terraced homes offer a huge amount of potential, with those that have been built in the Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian eras also offering bags of character. However, small kitchens, ground floor bathrooms and a warren of separate reception rooms with little natural light don’t quite suit modern lifestyles.

In this inspiration guide, we explore the potential that terraced houses hold and look and some of the best remodelling and extension ideas for this style of house. Clever design tweaks can really help transform your terraced home, opening up rooms and extending the footprint to create a home that suits how we live today.
