If you’re considering a kitchen extension, there are plenty of options you will need to consider. Will you be adding just a kitchen or perhaps also a living or utility area? Will you add bifold or sliding doors to the new walls?

In the meantime, here are some of the popular extension features from recent projects we’ve carried out.

Let the light in with sliding doors

In this kitchen and utility extension we carried out in Burton on the Wolds, sliding doors were added to multiple walls. This allows light to flow beautifully into the space and lets the owners truly open the room out into the garden on sunny days.

With so much extra space created by extending, we were able to incorporate a large island complete with storage, as well as a modern kitchen with a variety of built-in appliances.

Completed with ceiling spotlights and statement pendulum lights, this multi-functional space has lighting options for every occasion.

Incorporate an island

For this kitchen extension we carried out in Mountsorrel, the additional space allowed for a large kitchen island and new fitted kitchen installation.

Adding a kitchen island provides a large amount of additional storage and extra work surface. It’s also possible to add built-in appliances such as hobs, as we did with this project. Islands can also be used as a casual dining space when paired with stools, which can be neatly tucked under when not in use, making it the ideal multi-functional piece to add to your extension.

Create a utility space

When it comes to extending your home it’s possible to create entirely new rooms, adding more space and value to your property. With this rear extension in Loughborough, we added a utility room area as well as extending the kitchen itself.

If you have plenty of unused space to the rear of your property this option is ideal, especially if you find yourself needing to add additional bathrooms or shower rooms on the ground floor of your home.

Brighten up with skylights

As part of this rear extension in Quorn, we added multiple skylights to allow natural light to flow into the property. Paired with pendant lighting these windows also create a modern statement look.
