Side Return Extension Ideas for 2021: The Ultimate Guide

You have invested a lot of time and money into making your house a home so if you are finding you need more room, you may not want to move to a bigger property. Luckily, you can easily expand your living space by adding a side return extension to your existing and beloved home.

Side Return extensions are a popular extension choice for those who want more living space without sacrificing their garden to do so. Instead of encroaching onto your garden, side return extensions use the side passage of the property.

Side return passages are common in semi-detached, detached, and in Victorian terraced homes. Often they are poorly used spaces that at best are used for bins and at worst are dumping grounds for random bits of outdoor items. By turning the area into an extension, you will be giving a new purpose to the side of your home. Not only can a side return extension enhance your living space, but it can add a lot of value to your home as well.

It may not seem like a lot to work with, but side return extensions can make a massive difference to any home by adding more light and living space. Whatever your property’s style, there are lots of creative and efficient ways to maximise your side return extension potential.

Types of Side Return Extensions

A single storey side extension is a ground floor extension that can expand an already existing room or it can be turned into its own space like a garage or utility room. It adds more room and functionality to your house without making major changes to the overall structure. This is why side extensions are one of the most popular types of single-story extensions.

However, if you’re looking for even more from your extension, it is possible to build a double storey side return extension. The second story can easily be customised to make a master suite bedroom or an additional bathroom for your family.

Side Return Extensions can breathe new life into your family’s home. If you are ready to get more from your property, Doran Bros Construction are leaders in house extensions in South London and South West London. Contact us today to make your side return extension idea a reality. Find out more at
