Traditional building methods called for houses divided into lots of separate rooms - often resulting in small spaces that lacked natural light. As homeowner needs and design trends have changed one project has become more and more prevalent - the open plan kitchen extension.
Creating a modern space that brings the kitchen and living areas together by adding a single storey extension to the rear of a house is a task many of our customers have undertaken, and whether you live in a rural location or an urban terraced street there are numerous ways of achieving it.
This case study covers a number of projects that have used a combination of our glazing solutions to bring a project to life - all aiming to achieve a large, light filled living space that most often will open out to a garden or terrace for indoor/outdoor living.
Regardless of whether you opt for a large extension to include both a kitchen and living space, or simply extend your kitchen outwards or into the side return to incorporate a dining area, one key element to your project is always glazing - from bifold and sliding doors that link your garden to your house, through to fixed frame clerestory windows, skylights and lanterns that flood your extension with natural light.
