Benefits of a Kitchen Extension

There are many benefits to adding a kitchen extension to your home. For long-term owners, a kitchen extension will improve the quality of your life by adding space and functionality, but even if you are only considering selling your property, a kitchen extension could increase the value of your property by as much as 20%.

However, because a kitchen extension is a large project, there are a few things to consider before consulting us:

  • Size: Consider the size of your outdoor space and the size of the potential extension. These are incredibly important to overall renovation. 
  • Layout: Think of any style you like and how it can be implemented with your available space.
  • Budget: Our kitchen extensions usually start from £75,000. Your budget will dictate your choice of hardware and materials used in the renovations. 
  • Design: We have plenty of options and consultancy options, though having something in mind for the kitchen of your dreams is a good idea.
