If you don’t have a massive garden or budget, but want a bigger kitchen, never fear. A small kitchen extension can still give that bit of extra space and transform your home. Here are some tips so that you can make the most of your space, no matter how big or small.
Fall in love with your kitchen again
Kitchens are one of the most popular rooms to extend. This is generally down to two reasons. You’re either a keen chef who wants more space for baking and cooking up culinary feasts or you want more space for the family or guests to spend time in. An extension can unleash the potential in your home and give you that extra room for a dining area or an island that becomes a focal point as well as a usable worktop. Open-plan spaces are an incredibly popular home improvement trend and will allow you to create a home that has a continuous feel to it. An open-plan kitchen will also feel larger, open up more space and fill the room with light.
So many ways to transform your space
Kitchens look stunning when bathed with light so make the most of large windows or a lantern roof. Imagine having a dinner party with stunning views of the countryside or your garden to enjoy. There’s so much choice when it comes to extensions. You can choose from a full-on brick extension that blends in with the rest of your home or you could have a conservatory or orangery to give a bright and airy space. Even a small kitchen extension can be a stunning addition to your home.
The benefits of a kitchen extension
- Give yourself more room for whatever you want to do; more worktop space, a new appliance or a breakfast bar
- Enjoy the feel of a brand new room that will make you fall in love with your home again
- Add value to your home which is great news if you plan to sell
- Add stylish features such as a lantern roof or bifolding doors that will ensure your home stands out
- Improve, don’t move. Increase your space without the hassle of moving
Some advice to be aware of
Be wary of not sacrificing too much of your garden. You could come to regret it when the spring arrives. An extension that dwarves your home can also make your home more difficult to sell. Come to a compromise and find a size that gives you the space you need without going overboard. When electricity and plumbing are involved, it’s important to ensure that everything is installed safely, and all building regulations and planning permissions are obtained.
