Tips For Home Extension | VELUX & Mumsnet Partnership

A couple of weeks ago, we were asked to take part in an exciting project. VELUX and Mumsnet were looking for families with new extensions to share their top tips when planning a home extension- which we have in abundance! It was an opportunity to share our experiences when undergoing such a big home improvement, as well as reflect on how now having this additional space has improved our family life.

Our renovation process was a long and stressful one. So it was really good to be able to focus on and appreciate all the positive aspects that we are now finally able to really enjoy as a family. When the very lovely Mumsnet Video Team arrived at our house I was a bit overwhelmed. I felt super nervous to talk in front of the camera! The old me would have been so much more confident in herself. But I’m so pleased we were asked to take part. It was such a fun experience and I feel as if the video is now a good reminder of what all of the hard work was for- making our house and family home.

    It’s incredible how lighting a space well makes so much difference, and roof windows are amazing for that. People definitely tend to think only of the regular windows when considering how much light comes into the property, but what you can get from a skylight really elevates things to the next level. It’s a lovely video with some great tips, good to see you enjoying the fruits of your hard work.
