Building a Kitchen Extension in Wimbledon

Whilst there are plenty of ways in which you can make the most of a small kitchen, you may be considering building a kitchen extension to get the space you want.

Opening up your new kitchen not only provides more options for cooking but it can also provide an area for dining, relaxing, working and entertaining. Some extensions will have doors opening onto the garden, creating that garden room feel which brings the outside in, while others simply create a more flexible space for the whole family to enjoy.

Before you start submitting plans and choosing your cabinetry, take time to consider all the elements carefully, as any mistakes can be costly later on.


If your property is a traditional Victorian terrace, filling in the side return can transform what was an awkward galley into a wider, brighter kitchen that could be large enough to include a dining area or living space. A glazed roof over the side return or a series of skylights will allow more natural light to flood in.


Your choice of extension will very much depend on your budget as well as what offers you the best use of space to suit your lifestyle. A brand new extension is the ideal blank canvas in which to create your perfect kitchen and you can start from the very beginning, from where to position the sockets and light switches to installing underfloor heating and one of the latest flush-fit ceiling mounted extractors. There are no constraints in terms of existing electrics and plumbing, so make the most of it!
