The trend for ‘improve not move’ looks set to carry on into 2017. With the cost of moving and house prices continuing to rise, it makes sense for London families to expand their current properties rather than move to a new one. If you’re thinking of getting an extension on your house take a look at our videos for some extension inspiration.
Highbury, North London – Rear Kitchen Extension
This Victorian home in Highbury, North London, underwent an extensive renovation; it included a rear kitchen extension and a loft conversion, with the latter constructed by our sister company, Simply Loft. The owners of this extension have created a beautiful kitchen diner with exposed brick and bi-folding doors, which bring the outside in. The design also features a strategic light well over the sink and the kitchen uses sleek lines and a contrasting colour palette to maximise space.
Balham, South West London, Side Return Extension
Bright and airy, this side return extension, in the South West London enclave of Balham, is a great example of what can be done in a normal period terrace. Light was important to this family, and the combination of bi-folding doors, floor to ceiling windows and skylights above the dining table ensures plenty of natural light flows into this family orientated room. The traditional kitchen and large warm-coloured wooden table give this modern extension a homely feel.
Queens Park – Rear Extension and Refurbishment
This pretty rear extension on a ground floor garden flat in Queens Park near Kilburn in North West London, just goes to prove that you don’t need to own a house to extend your home. This project saw a complete renovation of the flat that included a reconfiguration of the bedrooms, bathroom and living room. A light well and wall-to-wall bi-folding doors let in plenty of light into what was once a dark space. The reconfiguration has enhanced the property’s period features and gives the family a workable space to live, work and play.
East Sheen London – Rear Kitchen Extension
A modern extension can transform a home no matter when it was built. This early 20th-century family home opted for a rear pitched roof kitchen extension, which gives the room a lofty feel. Skylights are fitted into the slope of the roof and let in plenty of natural light, as does the triangular window above the door. This family have also opted for bi-folding doors which connects with the garden, offering indoor-outdoor living all year round. The stylish kitchen is sociable and has been designed with entertaining in mind.
