We process more enquiries for modern extensions than any other type of house extension. It most certainly seems that open plan bright and light extensions with modern components are here to stay.

Architects and designers continue to mix new materials, previously only seen on commercial developments, with traditional brick, stone and render to come up with truly outstanding extension designs.

If you think about it most of the housing stock in the UK was built for an entirely different type of family and whilst some of these designs were great for their time they are now entirely outdated and no longer meet the demands of the lifestyle we have today.

Example: I like the simplicity of clean white walls and ceilings with coloured double glazing. Note the floor to ceiling glass panels and floating shelves...


It’s not surprising then that the only homes that are really in tune with modern living are those that have been extended with a modern type of extension.

Modern extensions are not simply adding space as the real benefits of a modern extension is the change of lifestyle that comes with it. Take a period property or even better, a 1930’s semi, and try to visualise the tiny kitchen that sits more or less under the bathroom. Imagine what it would have been like to prepare meals for the family, year after year, in this tiny space. I dare say it wouldn’t have been too much fun.

Example: This would be a pretty dark extension if it didn’t have the glass roof panels. Note the size of the panoramic glass window at the end of the extension...


Now try to imagine the same property that has been open-planned and extended with a modern extension and then try to imagine what it might it would be like to prepare meals in a large open space with a breakfast bar and a work island whilst checking recipes on your wall mounted flat screen tv.

Most modern extensions now try to include more recreational living space with the addition of a couch or two which means that the hub of the home is now towards the back of the house where the modern amenities can be enjoyed in a bright well lit open space.

Example: What a great extension and open plan living space. Note the ceiling beams which show you where walls were removed...

Example: A modern glass extension that looks simply marvellous. Note the flooring materials that continue onto the patio...

Example: The folding doors are striking and the addition of a canopy easily makes this extension a winner...

During the summer months this is even more attractive as the doors can be folded right back to allow ease of movement between the house patio and garden.

Modern extensions do change the way people engage with one another in a domestic environment. It also creates a feeling of well being which in effect makes people more happier. In effect, you might have wanted an extension or a bigger kitchen but you get far more which makes a modern extension well worth the money.

If you are considering adding an extension then I suggest you crack on and do it as a modern extension will give you loads of pleasure for many ears as well as adding substantial value to the price of your property.
