Running out of space is a familiar London problem. You could buy a bigger house, which means paying more stamp duty, or dig a basement, which is expensive, or convert the loft, though this is not always possible.    However, the most cost-effective solution is to stay put and build an extension, which in many cases you can do without even seeking planning permission.

LOVE the wide entrance down into the extension, and the glass overhead and the 'feature' window at end. May be nice to do something wide like this if blocking up the other side with bathroom/utility.
