How do I decide if I should extend upwards or outwards?

Extending up will save your valuable outdoor area and unlock any potential district or water views, whilst providing clearly defined living and sleeping zones within your home.

Extending out, if you have ample outdoor space, is often easier. There is less chance of infringing on your neighbour’s light and privacy, and you do not have the expense and space requirements of a stairway to the second-storey.
