Our client wanted to enlarge the kitchen and dining spaces via single and double storey extensions. The idea was to create one new, open living area for his family; to maximise his property value and increase bedroom size with the addition of a loft conversion.
We maximised the natural light via a skylight, larger windows and bi-fold doors. This was easily achievable as we were not only adding a rear extension but also a side extension too. The double storey rear extension enabled us to enlarge his bedrooms, and we created a great design for his loft conversion via the addition of 2 dormer windows. We were also able to add a new utility room for him, within the extended space. The aim was partly to update the appearance of the exterior, adding instant value to the property. Part of the brief was to keep within the traditional design of the existing property, but at the same time to give a fresh appearance. We were also asked to maximase all the spaces and the light.
Sutton is an attractive, rural area with several examples of modern architecture, and we created a good example of building design for them and helped them to obtain planning permission from Sutton Council for their project.

How much does an extension add to the value of a house?
What home improvements add the most value? You may wonder how much value does a new kitchen add to your home? Kitchen extension designs are probably the most popular of house extension proposals. We can indicate the design & build costs as well as the resale value added.
