Kitchen Extension Tips

If you’ve been considering a new luxury kitchen extension for some time, there are lots of things to think about. Not only do you have to consider the type of bespoke kitchen that you would like to create, but also the purpose of the extension and how you would like to use your new space. Perhaps the add on to your home is a unique shape or maybe it’s quite large and you don’t know how to maximise the use of your new extension. Here are just a few ideas to help you build the perfect kitchen extension in your home.

#1 Purpose
The best designer kitchens are based on well planned living spaces. In our modern homes the contemporary kitchen is much more than a place for preparing food. It’s a place for entertaining, reading the newspaper, relaxing with friends or spending time with the family. Whatever type of new kitchen you have in mind, your extension should be carefully planned so you can make the best of your new kitchen.

#2 Layout
This is where assistance from a professional designer can prove so beneficial. They will look at the plans or the existing space if the extension is already built and create a truly bespoke kitchen designed around your needs. They will know where to situate appliances, the best place for family dining or where to place a kitchen island to make the kitchen function most effectively.

#3 Natural Light
When you add an extension consider how your new bespoke kitchen will be lit. Will you need to add in Velux windows or some well placed lighting. The last thing you need is to have a beautifully designed kitchen that’s in the dark because natural and artificial light weren’t considered.

4 Work with a Professional
Kitchen extensions are difficult to get right and without guidance from a professional they can go wrong. Extensions can involve lots of work, not just in building terms but also moving utilities, configuring new electrics and installing windows and doors. A professional Roundhouse designer will help you create a bespoke design built around your new extension.
