Single storey extensions, Bromley Heath

I recently went back to this 1950’s home in Bromley Heath, to see their recently completed extension. These semi detached homes, with impressive bays to the front, had large kitchens, and dining areas to the rear of the house, but lack a social space that really makes the most of the areas available. By building a relatively modest extension to ‘square off’ the rear elevation, and removing some internal walls, a really impressive kitchen and dining area was created.

The owners chose a beautiful kitchen, using brick slips to create a feature back splash, and with the help of their electrician, created a clever lighting feature over the island. The existing dining room has been utilised to provide a snug/TV area, while the dining area overlooks their garden. Their previous detached garage has been demolished, with a more practical store area added to the side return of the house. The removal of the garage has opened the garden right up, so that the owners have actually gained garden space, rather than lose it, as well as creating a large, light, social space for their growing family.
