For many people, the main improvement they would make to their home is to enlarge their kitchen, and it is also one of the main requirements for people looking to buy a new home. If you would love a larger kitchen, but do not want to move to a new house altogether, you could look into the option of extending your home.
You could open up your kitchen space, create a more open plan living area, or entirely move your kitchen as you extend another part of your home.
In order to raise the funds to build your kitchen extension, unless you have spare cash in savings you can use, you will probably have to re-mortgage your home. Many people choose the re-mortgaging option when adding an extension to their home, you may have to sign some forms such as an occupier consent form, but it is a fairly straightforward process.
