The simplest type of extension – the single-storey kitchen extension. Imagine what you could do with a whole new space to the back of your property. Not surprisingly, there are so many options from open-plan to broken-plan; sky lights to full-length glazed doors; modern or traditional. But that’s the exciting bit, right?
A single-storey kitchen extension is a great option for a home with a large enough garden to steal some space from and if they go less than three metres from the rear wall of the original house (or under four metres on a detached property) then no formal planning permission is required and you can build under permitted development rights – wahey! Don’t forget to consult your local planning authority first though and check out Planning Portal for extra advice.
There are some truly amazing projects out there to swoon over, so let me show you my favourite amazing single-storey extensions…
