Rear extensions designs
Ready for the exciting part? It’s the designs that make all the difference. Work with your construction company to achieve the look that works with the style of your London home as well as your practical requirements.
Your plans need a balance of practicality (where’s the pipework?) and finesse (which countertop goes best with which cabinets?). Experienced designers know how to strike the right balance, keeping your project on budget while maintaining the look. Questions to ask:
- Plumbing location
- Drainage considerations
- Flooring: vinyl, laminate, tiles, stone, carpet, parquet, exposed boards?
- Internal walls: plastered, painted, wallpapered, exposed brick?
- Windows: PVCu, skylights, lantern style, aluminium, sash?
- Doors: air/aluminium, timber, PVCu, solidor composite, bifold, sliding, hinged?
How to use the space
- Utility cubby
State-of-the-art kitchens are often placed in rear house extensions, with bi-folds opening onto gardens to seamlessly connect inside with outside. Lounges can also be positioned here, though, so ensure you explore all options before settling on favourites.
Next question: how will you divide the area? Consider whether one large room suits best, or multiple rooms work better. Stud walls are easy to install, creating dedicated utilities nooks, bike stores, dog washing stations or children’s play areas.
