A house extension is a hugely popular way to make living spaces work better. Ask yourself these 5 key questions before diving into a new project to make sure you make the right initial decisions.

1. The Good: Which spaces work well in your home, and why?
Which rooms do you currently enjoy spending time in? What is it about these rooms that you like? Using your five senses (sight, touch, smell, hearing and taste) try to identify what it is that really works for you in the spaces that you enjoy. Perhaps there is a pleasing view through the window, there is plenty of natural light, you can’t hear the nearby motorway or you can smell what’s cooking in the kitchen.
