Planning a home extension for your kitchen

If you want to create a home extension, with the aim of turning this additional space into a kitchen, there are some considerations to take into account. Designing the space for a kitchen takes careful planning and forethought. Especially in relation to the kitchen appliances, fixtures and fittings, as well as seating areas. As a result, the first step to planning a home extension for your kitchen is to list all of the necessities you want to create a space for. These can include:

  • kitchen islands
  • breakfast bars
  • kitchen table
  • type of cooker
  • type of fridge/freezer
  • separate utility room
  • dining area
  • larder
  • bi-fold doors, patio doors or french doors

Once you know what your kitchen extension needs to include, you can work with an architect to plan the layout and the design.

Planning the layout

Depending on the shape and size of the home extension you are aiming for, the layout should follow the floor plan. It is important to create a kitchen and dining space that really flows. And if you want a utility space too, you need to decide the entry point.

Choosing where to position the doors to the outdoor area is often one of the first priories, as leaving enough floor space clear and free is important for access inside and out. And from there, the other necessities can be planned.
