If you have been hunting for Victorian house extension ideas then call off the search — we have been busy gathering up the most creative and beautiful projects we've seen to ensure that you have all the inspiration you need for your own extension.

House extensions for any period of property need to be carefully planned, not only to ensure that they provide the extra space needed, but also so that they complement and enhance the existing building they are being added to. In the case of Victorian houses, with their character, fine detailing and intrinsic charm, it is more important than ever to ensure that any extension, whether contemporary or classic in its design, highlights and draws out these features rather than overshadowing them.
