House Extensions

What are house extensions? Why would you need extension builders in London?

Though prices are sometimes slower to increase, the London property market continues to grow apace. With house extensions in London, homeowners can avoid the hassle of new home buying, and moving, creating more space and adding value to their property.

For many homeowners, home extensions in London are the solution to cramped and cluttered living, and things such as kitchen extensions in London homes often help people reinvigorate homes they have fallen out of love with.

Many of our house extensions in London are done to deliver more of a light, airy space for customers to enjoy, such as open plan kitchens in London homes. For some, a rear extension with new window and bifold doors can totally upgrade their home.

Other homeowners crave kitchen extensions for their London home, creating a seamless integration of outside spaces and internal living areas, creating great entertainment spaces, while some want our extension builders in London to create a home office, cinema or even a studio.

From kitchen extensions to rear extensions – what house remodeling to choose?

When it comes to house extensions in London, our extension builders always take time to discuss the desired external look and feel that clients want to achieve. From kitchen extensions to a rear extension, or even full scale house extensions in London homes, style and included features have to be finalized before starting.

With all house extensions in London, the style of the original or existing home matters, whether a terraced or a detached, a 1930’s home or a period property. Next, house extensions in London should be decided based on whether you would like to build within permitted development rights or submit a bigger design into planning permission, especially if you live in a conservation area or in a listed building, where house extensions in London need local planning approval regardless of building within permitted development rights.

Rear extension in London – Modern or Traditional?

Modern house extensions in London often include large areas of uninterrupted glass, taking a minimal approach to decoration and detailing. These kinds of house extensions in London rely on high end craftsmanship and materials. With kitchen extensions in London homes, they are often clean-lined, featuring smooth surfaces and recessed handles to help free the space of visual clutter.

When it comes to traditional house extensions in London, they often feature glazed areas that are divided into smaller panes of glass, perhaps with crittal style windows or timber mullions. Decoration in the form of panelling, skirtings and architraves may complete the space internally. Kitchen extensions in London in this style often incorporate recessed door panels and traditional handles in a ‘shaker’ style.

In keeping or Contrasting?

In keeping: With house extensions in London this means choosing from a palette of brick, render, stucco, slate and painted timber.

Contrasting: House extensions in London that go for a contrasting design allow more opportunity for unusual materials for the exterior of extension. In London house extension projects,, contrasting materials are generally anything other than those listed above.
