A large number of London homes were built during Victorian and Edwardian times when it was fashionable to build homes with several smaller rooms as opposed to larger open-plan designs that are popular today. For this reason, many homes from this period comprise a separate kitchen and dining room which is not favourable for a family setting; usually a parent preparing food in the 21st century will prefer to have her children in sight, and treat food preparation and cooking as a family activity as opposed to a necessary chore.
Converting a separate kitchen and dining room into a sigle cooking and dining area is one of the more straightforward types of kitchen extensions, and usually only consists of removing an inner wall, or making an arch within the inner wall, and redesigning the space optimally.
However, if your property does not have an adjacent room to the kitchen, this can be fixed by adding an extension to the rear of the house to create the space needed for a kitchen diner extension.
This can be achieved by adding a large extension to the rear of the house, giving you plenty of room for a dining area and even additional living space that has access to the garden. If your budget won’t allow for such relatively extensive work, we can simply extend the existing space minimally to allow for a dining area to be added to the kitchen as it is.
