Extension Kitchens

Kitchen extensions are a lot of fun and easily one of the most popular types of home extension. Ideally you should start the project with an architect but it can also help to talk to a friendly builder first just to get an idea of what you can achieve with your particular property.

When it comes to permitted development and planning for extensions a large number will fall under permitted development. The problem however is that it would be nice to get an absolute confirmation before you build and the planning won’t give that confirmation. They may tell you that it is likely that your new kitchen extension falls within permitted development but the only way you can an absolute confirmation is to apply for a lawful development certificate which takes just as long and costs as much as a planning application.

Example: A well designed modern kitchen extension. By extending sideways they have created a lovely bright and airy kitchen, dining and recreational living space...


If you are happy with your build and want to go ahead we generally advise that you have plans made at the start of the project as you will need plans to give to building control in order that you can get building regulations approval.

Kitchen extension designs are now more varied than ever before. Architects, in recent years, have been introducing more commercial build materials to provide a far more modern kind of extension and homeowners love it because we are now seeing a lot more cutting edge modern kitchen extensions than ever before.

Example: Just look at that expanse of glass. Huge double glazed sliding doors, coloured glazing and overhead canopy help to make this a winner...


One of the most appealing characteristics of a modern kitchen extension is the double glazed aluminium folding doors which seem to be getting wider and wider. Floor to ceiling glazing panels are also very popular as are roof lanterns which provide loads of light back into the house.

Another design element that has been increasing in popularity is the use of over-hanging canopies, usually with recessed lighting, which gives the appearance of a much larger extension. Once the large folding doors are open the canopy really does help to extend the size of the kitchen right out onto the patio.

Example: This kitchen extension isn’t huge but look at what is possible when you add on a few metres using modern materials...

If you actually like that element do take a look at some of our extension photos of new kitchen extensions with added verandah. In some cases we see the same flooring used within the extension and within the verandah an it can look absolutely fantastic as well as making the floor area look huge.

So, if you are planning to do a kitchen extension we suggest that you get on with it as a modern kitchen extension looks beautiful, will give you years of pleasure as well adding a substantial sum to the value of your property.
