Increasing the size of their narrow kitchen was a priority for the owners of this Victorian terraced town house in Windsor.
A large rear extension was not the best option due to the depth of the rear garden, so our client decided to utilise the mostly dead space to the side of their property. Their vision was to create a spacious, sociable area to cook, dine and relax.
The original kitchen wall was removed and the existing dining room was connected to the new extension by partially removing that wall. A contemporary lean-to roof was then installed to flood the new interior space with natural daylight. The contemporary lean-to has a sleek rafter design and incorporates a structural box-gutter against the neighbouring wall. The existing soil pipe was also discretely concealed within the panel design of the roof.
Modern, slim framed, aluminium Solarlux SL 60e Bi-Folding Doors extend across the entire width of the property to blend the interior space with the garden. A fully flush track meant that the new patio area could be brought to the same level as the kitchen floor to create a seamless flow into the garden.
This dramatic makeover completely changed how the owners use their home and was a major selling point when it came to marketing the property for sale.
