Living/Kitchen Extension

Project cost: £100,000

This client wanted to extend their living space and create an open plan kitchen living area. The existing French doors let in lots of natural light but these could be enhanced even more to make the most of the views into the garden.

An extension was added to the side of the house where a modern shaker kitchen was installed. Tall units including three Siemens ovens, fridge freezer and larders was boxed in with a new stud wall to create a streamline feature. A run of units under the window gives surface space with an under mounted sink and engraved drainer grooves in the granite worktop. An island breakfast bar houses an induction hob and downdraft extractor. The stepped in units and worktop overhang provide enough room to sit and enjoy your morning coffee.

Rustic oak Karndean flooring runs the entire length of the living area and into the hall helping to create a fluid, inviting space.

The original windows and French doors were replaced with a floor to ceiling window and three sets of bi-folds creating a seamless view into the garden.  

A large custom built pantry and separate utility provide additional storage, a second under mounted sink with room for a washing machine and tumble dryer. The client also had a new boiler installed, decoration throughout, repairs to the bedroom and bathroom and a loft ladder installed.
