Client: Lucy

Brief: Side Return Extension in Holloway, North London, creating a larger kitchen and diner space

Timescale: 12 weeks

Lucy came to us with a strong vision of what she wanted to achieve through working with Simply and our design team. By listening to Lucy’s requirements and offering our expertise and guidance we were able to give Lucy the kitchen/diner of her dreams.

In the past homes were divided into lots of separate rooms, often resulting in cramped spaces with minimal natural light and flow. Nowadays, the lifestyle of the modern homeowner has changed, and people are seeking open plan spaces that provide a ‘hub’ where cooking and eating is an activity rather than a chore. Enter the kitchen diner — the perfect solution that offers an open plan kitchen and dining (and often living) area where homeowners can cook, eat and entertain with ease, in a large, light-filled space that most often will open out to a garden or terrace for indoor/outdoor living. Here, at St Johns Villas we did just that.

By adding a side return extension to the property we have extensively added space and value. Our team understood that gaining as much light as possible into the space was so important to Lucy, that not only did we place multiple skylights throughout the length of the room, but also installed stunning high quality aluminium bi-folding doors.

Our skilled team here at Simply not only carried out a full-bespoke kitchen refit, but also incorporated under floor heating which was then beautifully tilled throughout.

There are many striking features added into the project here at St John Villas. We love the kitchen island with incorporated wine cooler and stunning glass pendant lights. The real wow factor here has to be the stunning unconventional splash back that I’m sure is a talking point for any guest visiting Lucy in her new kitchen/diner.

Delafield Road

Joseph of Delafield Road rightly called upon Simply Extend to deliver a large kitchen extension to his home in Charlton. A rear extension was constructed on the ground floor while also refitting the existing bathroom. At the same time, our sister company Simply Loft, specialising in loft conversions transformed the available loft space into a well-appointed and spacious guest room and bathroom. The project undertaken vastly transformed this once modest London property into a larger family home for all to enjoy.

Joseph wanted the kitchen to become the heart of the home by not only having somewhere to cook, but for Simply Extend to provide somewhere he can cook, eat and relax all within one space.

Our specialist team here at Simply Extend went straight to work once council approval was received, turning Josephs vision into reality. The entire kitchen was refitted with new worktops, doors and appliances. The newly built extension filled the brief of providing the kitchen diner with an area to unwind.

Bi-folding doors were installed to allow access to the garden, and to provide plenty light to run throughout the ground floor. The downstairs WC was newly fitted and updated. The whole project was finished with a fresh coat of paint where Joseph dared to be a little different and bold by using “tangerine” in areas bringing the kitchen to life!

Lowden Road

Client: Joanna

Brief: To create a side return extension in Herne Hill with a larger kitchen / diner area and ground floor toilet.

Time Scale: 12 weeks

The side return extension is one of the most common domestic building projects. Extending the kitchen into the wasted space at the side of your home makes the layout of a period terrace much more relevant to todays lifestyles and needs. The additional space we were able to deliver by undertaking a side return extension project with Joanna has had considerable results, maximising space and allowing a complete kitchen transformation to take place.
85a3509

Joanna of Lowden Road wanted to create the perfect living space making the kitchen the heart of her home. What Simply provided was a beautiful area Joanna could finally relax in, as well as having the open planed diner to entertain family and friends. Only the best quality materials and appliances were used and expertly fitted by our skilled team.

Simply transformed the once dull restricted kitchen into a well lit and beautifully presented room. Light was introduced into the house with double glazed windows and 3 large skylights, while a newly installed patio door gave easy access to the garden. The Team fitted all the necessary piping and wiring that is needed to connect a new ground floor WC making home living much more simpler.

85a3500

Simply transformed this once modest London home into a much more spacious environment with the help of our sister company Simply Loft. Our team of experts not only made the living area on the ground floor more extensive, but also remodelled the loft space to give Joanna a further bedroom and en-suite bathroom to fully complete this project.

Gracefield Gardens

Client: Laura

Brief: A three-meter-squared single-storey ground floor extension to incorporate an open plan living space with a kitchen.

Located in the fashionable neighborhood of Streatham in South London, this build has maximized light and space. Two skylights and an Anthracite bi-folding door were installed to lead out to the garden, creating an indoor/outdoor space that lets light and air flood the room. Outside decking was also added to create a seamless floor between the kitchen extension and the outside area.

The sleek modern kitchen has clean lines and the architectural extractor fan reflects light around the room. Laura also opted to convert the loft at the same time, creating a double bedroom and ensuite bathroom. Simply Extend has completed hundreds of extensions across London. Our architectural team are also experienced in dealing with council planners if needed.

Shortlands Road

Client: Allan

Brief: A single-storey extension creating an open-plan kitchen and dining space as well as a family living area. A downstairs toilet and utility room were also installed.

Typical Victorian semis do not always lend themselves well to modern living, and it was the lack of practical space that lead Allan to add not just a single-storey extension, but to convert the loft into two bedrooms and a bathroom. To let light into the extension, bi-folding doors were installed as well as two skylight windows into a pitched roof. The floor-to-ceiling doors connect the living space with the garden and creates a nice flow.
shortlands-road-3

The downstairs utility and bathroom is a practical everyday space that makes it easy to hide those essential appliances, giving more space for storage in the kitchen. At the same time, a side dormer loft conversion was installed by our sister company Simply Loft, creating two bedrooms and a bathroom.

At Simply Extend, we discuss in detail the needs of each client and draw up comprehensive designs which meet the requirements of the clients and planners.

Linden Road

Client: Liz

Brief: The brief to Simply Extend was to create a single-storey extension, creating a larger kitchen diner and ground floor toilet and utility room. A timber patio door was installed as well as two skylight windows to a pitched roof in the extension.

The need for more practical space motivated this large renovation. A single-storey extension was built to give Liz and her family a large open-plan kitchen-diner. The use of bi-folding doors and skylights ensures that light floods the room and gives the option to open the space up to connect with the garden.

The use of light colours on the walls and the mix of dark and light wood on the kitchen counter tops draws the eye to the timber framed doors and garden. The installation of a utility room means there is more space in the kitchen, keeping it clutter free.

Grierson Road

Client: Jo

Brief: Rear Extension Honor Oak.  Single storey rear home extension to accommodate a kitchen, dining area with garden access and a downstairs toilet.

Jo’s Honor Oak home was beginning to get too small for her family. Rather than moving house she commissioned Simply Extend to create a single storey rear home extension, giving her a new kitchen and dining area as well as a downstairs toilet, giving her much-needed room without the trouble of moving home.

This South East London home extension uses a combination of skylights and bi-folding doors to infuse the space with lots of light, and a crisp, contemporary kitchen and Scandi-inspired dining area add to the feel of clean lines and uncluttered space.

The bi-folding doors give unparalleled access to the garden, giving the sensation of indoor-outdoor living for joined-up family life. The simple, modern WC, meanwhile, adds convenience to the home and accommodates a growing family.

Niton Road

Client: Tom

Brief: Side Return Extension Richmond. Single storey side return extension creating a larger kitchen and dining area complete with seamless access to the garden.

Tom’s Richmond home was desperate for more living space but did not have a lot of room to extend at the rear. Simply Extend were able to design and build a side return extension that allowed the room needed to create a much larger kitchen and dining area that would accommodate a growing family – while remaining much more affordable and stress-free than moving house.
85a9911

The light, airy space in this South West London home extension was ensured through the use of skylights and large bi-folding doors, which also create a seamless link with the garden for highly desirable indoor-outdoor living. The contemporary kitchen, meanwhile, makes clever use of hidden storage, mirrored tiles and integrated appliances to create the impression of even more space.
85a9929

A mixture of lighting styles means that light can be focused where it’s needed: ceiling spots for general lighting, low ceiling lights over the island for more focused mood-lighting when dining and entertaining, and directional spots over the lounge area.

Chertsey Street

Client: Duncan

Brief: Tooting Kitchen Extension. Single storey rear home extension including a kitchen and dining area with garden access.

A lack of living space can be a real problem for many families and can be a key factor in the decision to move house. However, in London, moving house can be easier said than done with ever-increasing house prices and the best properties being snapped up almost instantly. A way to resolve this is to build a home extension that increases your living space and offers you a better quality of life.
85a0551_1

That’s what Duncan was looking to achieve when he commissioned Simply Extend to build his single storey rear kitchen extension to house an open plan kitchen-dining area space, creating more space in his Tooting home.

The South London kitchen extension uses three skylights and French windows to create a light, bright airy space that connects seamlessly with the garden. Inside, contemporary finishes such as a tiled floor and ceiling spotlights blend with the traditional style of décor which sees a shaker-style kitchen and farmhouse dining table combine to create a warm, friendly family space that’s also brilliant for entertaining guests.

Balfour Road

Client: Neil

Brief:  Kitchen Extension Highbury.  A large scale home renovation project including a rear dormer loft conversion complete with ensuite shower room as well as large rear and side kitchen extension.

Simply Extend is just one of the home improvement companies operating in London under the Simply Construction banner, and every so often we get to join forces for our friends at Simply Loft to carry out something bigger and more ambitious.

When Neil came to Simply Extend for a large scale renovation of his home we were able to plan and execute a home extension and loft conversion in North London which would be complete in just a few short months but provide Neil and family with increased living space in some of the most important parts of the home.

85a8200-edit

Everybody knows the importance of bedrooms to a growing family. Simply Loft were able to provide a new loft bedroom complete with en suite bathroom. The space available might have been fairly modest, but the addition of large windows and a bright colour scheme made the most of the space that they had.

For our part of the project we focussed primarily on providing a brand new kitchen which combined classic design touches with contemporary finishing. This meant exposed brick walls and rustic decorations, with slick and streamlined work surfaces and ultra-modern appliances. The result was something open plan and exciting; something fresh yet comfortable that the whole family could enjoy.
