Ask any architect and they'll tell you that adding a sleek extension to your home is a fantastic way to garner more space and increase the property's value, but what if you prefer something a little more eye-catching? As long as you're meeting all relevant building codes, you can, effectively, create whatever you like—and we've found a host of examples that show how imaginative people are being right now!

Whether you want more space for a bigger living room or even a whole new kitchen area, you'll see a few things that really take your fancy here, so let's get started!

1. The monochrome here makes a statement and blends in, all at the same time.
