Type of Kitchen Extensions & Conversions to Consider From:

Garage to Kitchen Conversion

If you have a garage, this can be turned into an extra kitchen space for your home. This will look seamless as no extra building is needed, just the interior wall to be knocked down. Depending on how you want to use the space costs can vary – you will need to comply with building regulations if you are creating habitable space. An unused, unloved garage space could be converted into a fantastic new kitchen, dining lounge, kitchen utility, or dining annexe.

Traditional Orangery Style Dining Room Extension

A great option to add on to a period style house. Timber mixes in with multiple window panes to let a large amount of light through. Great for summer dinner parties or lounging in an armchair watching the sun go down. This will usually fall within permitted development rights and not need planning permission, but it’s always best to seek advice first.

A Cellar Kitchen Conversion

An unused cellar is just an empty space waiting to be put to use. It could be useful as an extra kitchen, dining room or space to entertain the kids. You would need to consider insulation and damp proofing. This type of conversion is classed ‘a material change of use’ and has permitted development rights.

Single Storey Kitchen Extension

With these types of kitchen extensions you can choose to mould the open plan extension seamlessly to look like it’s always been there, or you can choose a contrasting modern kitchen style. It can be finished with either a flat or low-pitched sloping roof and a range of design styles it is a perfect way to create a larger kitchen/diner, lounge area or study/home office.
