Five Trendy Design Ideas for a Single-Storey Extension

Adding an extension doesn’t just create extra space. It’s a chance to breathe new life into your home, infusing it with fresh style while making it a more comfortable, functional space for you and your family to enjoy.

As the UK’s leading suppliers of DIY single-storey extension kits, we at Trade Price Warmer Living know a thing or two about trendy extension designs. Below, we’ve listed five stylish features that will effortlessly elevate the look and feel of your new extension.

1. Under-roof LED spotlights

Modern design is all about simplicity – clean lines, seamless flow, and cleverly hidden fixtures. By incorporating LED lights beneath the roof of your extension, you’ll infuse it with an ultra-contemporary vibe while also improving visibility at night.

Here at Trade Price Warmer Living, we believe in giving you the ultimate say in how your extension turns out. We can integrate a wide range of lighting options into your extension, both internal and external, so you can bring your vision to life as accurately as possible.

2. Wood-finish frame

Who says you have to stick with white frames? By adding a natural wood finish to your frames, you can bring a cosy rustic warmth to both the interior and exterior of your extension. You can even pair them with matching roof tiles (like the red tiles pictured here) to enhance the look further!

At Trade Price Warmer Living, we offer an extensive range of frame, door, and window colours to choose from. Whether you’re a fan of the rustic beauty of wood or prefer a more modern aesthetic, we have the perfect option for you. And that’s not all – we also have over 40 brick choices available, as well as a variety of gutter and fascia colours!

3. Slate tiles

Sleek, slim, and undeniably stylish, slate roof tiles can instantly add a sense of modernity to your extension. Their minimalist appearance makes them easy to match with virtually any building style, while their gently textured surface stops them from looking overly flat or dull.

When you design a Trade Price Warmer Living extension kit, you can choose to have Britmet’s LiteSlate for your tiles. LiteSlate is an advanced synthetic slate roofing tile that offers all the characteristics you’d expect from a traditional slate tile, with the benefits of modern design innovations – that means an authentic finish with riven edges, a wide range of seven timeless colours, and unmatched durability. It’s also crafted from 90% recycled polymers, making it an extra sustainable option.

4. Central skylight

Adding a skylight is a simple yet effective way to bring more natural light into your extension. A large, centrally positioned skylight like the one in the picture will allow sunshine to flood in, creating a sense of spaciousness while acting as a striking centrepiece in your room.

If you’re worried about a skylight making your extension too hot, don’t be! Trade Price Warmer Living’s extensions are crafted with timber and feature state-of-the-art Warmer Roof technology, which means they have an exceptional level of thermal efficiency. They’re designed to keep you cosy in winter by trapping warmth inside, and ensure you remain cool in summer by preventing transference of external heat. So, whether you decide to have a skylight or not, you can enjoy a comfortable temperature all year round.

5. Gable-end window

A gable-end window is another excellent option for letting more natural light into your extension, although it does so in a slightly more subtle way. Not only does it create an airy atmosphere within, but it also gives your extension a beautifully modern look from the outside. You can even take it a step further by illuminating it with LED lighting!

Of course, the gable-end style might not be everyone’s cup of tea. That’s why we offer a variety of other roof options for your extension – whether you fancy a sleek lean-to, a timeless Edwardian, or a minimalist flat roof, we provide every style option possible.
