There is old saying that ‘dogs often resemble their owners’, well this could possibly be said about houses too. In this case Jonny and Val were keen to open up their small dark existing kitchen extension into a light modern informal space for cooking and dining as well as a place for the family to hang out. The result was a bright, open, relaxed and warm family room, a space that we hope they don’t mind us saying is not unlike the owners!
Putney house kitchen - a fantastic example of how a single storey extension can look robust, modern and stylish rather than a crappy old lean-to or extension constructed with corrugated iron roof! Extend outwards and bring your outdoor in with bi-fold or concertina glass doors to open up the whole length of the room. Summertime, open up to use with the outdoor space. Velux windows or roof lights will bring more light into the space.
