Kitchen extension - north london

5 years ago

We are currently in the process of purchasing an end of
terrace property in North London, it’s an old house and requires quite a lot of
work (total rewire, gas, plumbing etc.). In particular, we’d be interested in
some advice on how to approach the back of the house which is currently a
kitchen, living area, utility and bathroom. We are considering:

  • Removal of the back of the kitchen (currently a
    very old utility and bathroom) and to extend this further out into the garden and
    removal of the existing wall on the side of the kitchen to extend this to the
    side of the house. This work should not require planning permission.
  • Within this space we would like to include a new kitchen with an island, a living area,
    dining table and also a small utility kitchen and bathroom (toilet and basin) - to the extent possible!

We are not sure how best to approach this to get a quote – is our first
call speaking to an architect about the extension and structural works? Or
would we be best to speak to a kitchen designer/ interior designer about how
best to use the space and then discuss this with an architect? Or would it be best to seek out a company that
could do everything for us? We are on a tight budget so would like to make
the process as efficient as possible and keen to get the best out of the space
we have.
