3 Top Tips For A Kitchen Extension
Now that lockdown restrictions in England have been eased somewhat and tradesmen - including fitters, roofers, plumbers, builders, electricians and decorators - are able to start construction projects of all kinds again, all while following social distancing protocols of course, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about your new kitchen extension.
You may well have shelved plans at the start of the year on certain projects but you can breathe new life into them now, so here are our top tips to help you get your home makeover off to a great start.
Maximise natural light
The vast majority of contemporary extensions these days will strive to blur the lines between the inside and outside parts of your home - and you’ll often see kitchen extensions with big skylights to really help bring in as much natural light as possible. You’ll enjoy reduced electricity bills as a result, as well!
Decide what you’d like to include in the extension
As well as a kitchen and dining area, you may well want other zones in your new extension, whether that’s space for extra storage, some desk space, direct access to the garden or a living area. Also decide if you want it to be a single or double-storey extension.
Prioritise cohesion with the rest of the house
While you don’t have to ensure that your new extension is in exactly the same style as your house, aim for a sense of cohesion throughout. The easiest way to go about doing this is to use lighting, flooring and paint to bring the extension and the rest of the house together.
