Perfect for adding much needed space to a home, single storey extension ideas can come in all shapes and sizes. Plus, as they're often achievable under Permitted Development, single storey extensions can save the heartache – and expense – of navigating the planning process. 

Whether you're looking for a larger kitchen, to open up to the garden or to alleviate pressure from pokey existing living spaces, single storey extensions can often unlock the potential of a house.
