Rear House Extensions London
A rear house extension is a great way to add value to your home and can be transformative for your home life, creating space at the back of your property, perhaps for a new kitchen or kitchen/diner open plan area, which can really enhance the appeal of your home. It can work wonders at transforming an uninspiring house into something that works for every member of the family.
A rear extension extends straight out from the back of a house and is typically a kitchen and / extra living / dining space. A rear extension can be added to any style of house, from semi detatched brick properties, Victorian terraced houses ground floor flats to detatched period homes.Steal ideas, change layouts to suit and learn from our previous projects. Our in-house design team has worked with many clients to reconfigure the downstairs space and open up existing living areas, creating a better “flow” between the front and back of the house.
One of the big advatages of a new rear extension is the increase in natural light, through fixed windows or bi-fold patio doors. This has the added bonus of connecting the indoor space to the outdoor garden area more readily. Modern windows and doors are incredibly thermally efficient with a solar reflective coating preventing over-heating from the sun and the double glazing systems with high u-values to prevent significant heat loss. A rear extension can really have a significant impact on the whole footprint of the house. It is key to get good designs that are conductive to your lifestyle requirements. It is very important to consider the exisiting house rooms and how they will work together with the new enhanced space with a rear extension.
Each one of our many clients has used the space created by a rear extension differently. Some have opted to create a large open plan living space that incorporates a kitchen, dining area and lounge, while others have chosen to use the space to give them a utility room as well as a large family kitchen – we’ve even had one client use their rear extension as a bedroom. However, you plan on using the space, a rear extension will not only change your home for the better, it can also transform your home life.
As we primarily work with clients in London and have worked on numerous projects in conservation areas we are very proud of our build teams that always refurbish sympathetically the old Georgian and Victorian buildings and build stylish new additions with the extension. Even a small rear extension can have a big impact. A small rear extension to a Victorian / Georgian flat can give the downstairs of the home a new lease of life. Giving people more space and a feeling of openness with the likes of rooflights, picture windows and bifold doors making the space feel bright, light and modern.
We design every extension to suit you and your property’s needs. We use clever design tricks such as light wells and skylights to let in as much light as possible and have created customised storage solutions to make every square inch of space work for you and your family.
