One of the most popular types of home extension is the kitchen extension. For many homeowners, the kitchen is the heart of the home. However, houses are often limited to small, cramped kitchen spaces. This is perhaps why so many people choose to expand their kitchens with a home extension.
Not only will an extension afford you more kitchen space, but it also had the added benefit of increasing the value of your property. According to the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, a kitchen extension can add up to 4% of a home’s value. Plus, an extension is a much more affordable option than buying a bigger property. It is amazing how much an extension can truly transform a home. Below, we take a look at some beautiful examples of kitchen extensions to help inspire you.
Modern Kitchen Extension
This stylish black and white kitchen is so light and modern. Reflective surfaces enhance the natural light flow coming in from the bifold doors, and under cabinet lighting adds more brightness, making the kitchen really shine. A quality hardwood floor adds a classic touch that prevents the space from becoming too black and white. A great example of a kitchen/dining room extension.
Open Plan Kitchen Extension
This more traditional style open plan kitchen dining room extension somehow manages to create a cosy feel within the extra space. Skylights let in extra sunlight as well as another set of beautiful bifold doors. A kitchen island with bar stools makes this a great place to catch up with the family after a long day or enjoy breakfast together before the day begins.
Stylish Kitchen Extension
Another stylish kitchen island in this kitchen extension. The black countertops contrast perfectly with the traditionally styled white cupboards. And the silver and brown shades from the large stainless steel fridge and dark wooden flooring add depth to this lovely kitchen design. This is one cosy looking kitchen, perfect for gathering family and friends, chatting and prepping meals in a setting that is far more conducive to spending time together.
Kitchen Extension with Lantern Skylights
You might think an all-white kitchen extension wouldn’t work. But pair it with stunning red brickwork and you’ve got an incredibly chic looking design that is beautiful and functional. Lantern skylights and bifold doors increase the light flow and reflective tiled surfaces keep the room bright and well lit. The exposed brick walls and wooden doors help soften the overall look.
Country Kitchen Extension
Earthy greens and a long wooden table and floating shelves come together in this lovely country kitchen extension for a fantastic traditional look, perfect for a country setting. Open shelves and hanging cookware give this kitchen a lived in, family feel. Large windows and a sliding patio door let in plenty of light. This delightful family kitchen looks like it should be featured in an edition of Country Living magazine.
