Single-storey kitchen extensions: an amazing inspo gallery
Posted on 24th February 2021
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?
So: single-storey kitchen extensions are a great option for a home with a large enough garden to steal some space from. If they go less than three metres from the rear wall of the original house (or under four metres on a detached property) then you don’t need formal planning permission. You can build under permitted development rights – wahey! Don’t forget to consult your local planning authority first though and also check out Planning Portal for extra advice.
There are some truly amazing single-storey kitchen extensions out there to swoon over, so let me show you my favourite incredible projects…
