Small Extension, Big Impact on Space – West Ashling

This is a great example to show how a small well planned change can have such a huge impact. With a 6m2 extension, removing the two windows we connected all the living space of this beautiful property in West Ashling.

The strip foundations were laid, sufficient for a two stories, we then built a small retaining wall and ran the joists back to the existing kitchen. The roof support was removed and a stud wall erected in its place to hold the bifolds and connect the Kitchen to the living room.

We removed the existing kitchen window and wall to make way for an extra french door opening onto the decking, helping to create a flow to the kitchen space.

With the old tiles and underfloor heating removed and with the new 600×600 tiles laid, we set about installing the new kitchen. The white handless door fronts and the combination of granite and walnut worktops, gives it a stylish finish. Two notable features that we really liked were the extractor and socket unit that rise from the worktop at the touch of a button.

I’m sure you’d agree that this clever use of old and new not only looks modern and clean but makes great functional improvements to what is in fact a very similar space.
