Abbeville RoadContemporary Kitchen, London

Our clients wanted a new, spacious kitchen in their late Victorian property and asked us to design a ground floor side return extension. In addition to the kitchen extension, the clients asked us to draw up plans for a loft conversion which would include a new master bedroom with an en suite.

Although the loft conversion was allowed under permitted development laws, full planning consent was needed for the kitchen extension. Lambeth is a notoriously tricky borough in which to secure planning consent, but with 20 years of experience working in the borough we secured planning approval for a side return extension.

The extension incorporates a strip of frameless glass which runs from floor to ceiling at a right angle to the side of the house, ensuring maximum light penetration at all times of day. Bi-fold folding doors open onto a large terrace from the dining area.

This is an example of a contemporary kitchen in London. —  Houzz

Don’t overextendWe often think bigger is better when planning an extension, but our experts advise caution if you want to stay on budget. “It’s important not to overextend and blow your entire budget on the biggest extension,” Leena Tulsidas says. “You also want to ensure the costs don’t outweigh the profit gained when selling.”She recommends you think about maximising your existing space, too. “While extending your property, you should also consider how the rest of your ground floor will be used,” she says. “If you’re likely to be left with unused space, you may want to think about how you can use that area efficiently and incorporate it into your extension.”
