Kitchen Extensions - are they still the number one home improvement?

You bet they are. All Brits love a large family kitchen and eating area and if the design of the kitchen extension can be combined with a few contemporary design additions such as bi-fold door sets, part glazed roofs and a semi-open plan ground floor living space etc. then this is just heaven to most modern day families and home owners.

Kitchen extensions whether they be for a large detached dwelling to the smallest of terrace property will add significant value and desirability to any property provided the design is right.

Sometimes it simply is not possible to extend the existing kitchen space especially if it is at the front of a property as many 1980's spec built smaller estates were. For these properties it can be very expensive to totally remodel the internal ground floor layout to get the  kitchen at the rear.

Some of the best kitchen extensions also knock through to the existing dining room that is very rarely used by most modern day family lifestyles so the space can be come a very underused & undervalued part of the home.

By opening up the kitchen into the dining room creates a much more user friendly space that will be enjoyed and used far more oftenest by the day to day running of a family home.

Sometimes a kitchen extension is not even required and simply knocking through the kitchen into the dining room is enough for a better use of space.  However, very often that added space for the kitchen created by the new extension does usually allow for greater flexibility and layout arrangements for the kitchen and the eating area.  very often a separate relaxation area can also be created with a sofas and a coffee table area as well.

To ensure that you get the best our of your own kitchen extension always employ the services of an experienced home extension design or architect who will bring added value with design ideas and concepts together with some great design detailing that you would never have thought of.
