Wakehurst Road Kitchen Extension and Loft Conversion, SW11, Wandsworth
Our client wanted to add a new bedroom to their house and extend the kitchen so that the communal area of the home was larger as well. We recommended a Mansard loft conversion to provide a spacious room that’s easy to furnish and fits in with the overall aesthetic of their home. We also recommended a side return extension with a flat roof to make the most of their extension without drastically reducing the garden space.
A rear addition on the loft conversion provided even more space for a bedroom and an ensuite shower room. We installed sliding sash windows on the rear mansard and Velux windows on the front elevation to ensure that the loft conversion fit in with the look of the house and the other buildings on Wakehurst Road.
Ensuring that the new kitchen is warm and well-lit is a priority in every job – we generally recommend under floor heating to heat the space evenly and economically. To let in as much light as possible, we agreed on bi-fold doors across the back of the kitchen extension and 3 Velux roof windows in the side elebation. The flat roof that extended from the back of the kitchen also contained a Velux roof dome.
The client was delighted with their home conversion; the new bedroom provides plenty of room for guests and family members over the holidays, while the kitchen extension has made family dinners and entertaining far easier. The extensive changes to their home have also increased the value significantly.
