New year, new kitchen extension: Hi February 2024!

The February issue of Kitchens Bedrooms & Bathrooms is out now! Inside, you can expect kitchen extensions, stylish wetrooms, loft conversions and so much more…

If you’re thinking of improving your home this year with a kitchen extension, a lovely loft or fabulous new ensuite bathroom, then we’ve got countless amazing and creative ideas.

Kitchen extension ideas

Looking to add value to your home? Why not create your perfect kitchen with a light-filled extension? We’ve gathered an array of projects to inspired your new addition, including this gorgeous extension by Norman-Prahm Architects.

I’m always looking at ways I can update my gaff and I’ve got some serious home envy going on right now. I’d just love an enormous dining nook with a window seat and extra-deep banquette – just like the design created by Studio McLeod and interior designer Beata Heuman. It’s perfect for a spot of lounging, daydreaming and, of course, some serious home entertaining!

And, if I ever have space for a kitchen island, sigh, I’m going to adorn it with green tiles, just like the kitchen extension designed by architects Mitchell + Corti, where the geometric roof trusses create amazing shadow play.

Statement showers

A wetroom or shower space can add some serious glam factor to your home as Irina discovered when writing her story. Each of the six daring and imaginative projects offers something totally unique and I’m sure you’ll find plenty of ideas for your own home. Obviously, I’m now adding a wetroom – preferably pretty in pink – to my ever-increasing wishlist…

Real kitchen renovations

The moment we all set eyes on the ruby-red Crittall windows in the imaginative kitchen designed by architect Mel Bax, we were transfixed. The wraparound extension has totally transformed how Mel and her family live in their lovely East London home.

And I’m also smitten with the gorgeous mint and off-white chequerboard tiled flooring by Otto Tiles & Design. Add in the pink walls – painted in Farrow & Ball’s Setting Plaster – and husband Slev’s art collection and the kitchen becomes a total riot of fun and colour.
