Home extension ideas: 10 looks to inspire your renovation



Ideas courtesy of Victorian terrace houses in London English terraced houses, defined as side properties that connect to each other in a row, were first constructed in the 17th century, then gained even more popularity in the 19th century as high-density housing for the working class.
Of course, they?re still very much occupied?and desired?in present-day London, offering folks the (increasingly rare) opportunity to inhabit Victorian era architecture in the center of the city.
Those looking to update or renovate their row houses, which are connected to adjacent properties on the front facade, means having to address a very specific structural issue: how to expand the home while accommodating the constraints of the period architecture. There?s really only one way to solve this problem, and that?s by extending back toward the garden. Which is how we?ve come to collect 10 creative and fresh solutions?all in London, naturally (and some projects that go up or even out to the front)?that build upon their existing foundations, often to stunning effect. Have a look.
