Wrap around extensions are ideal if you really want to maximise the space available in your London home – perfect if you want a lot more space but don’t want the cost or stress of moving house. They incorporate both a rear extension and a side return extension to create an L-shaped space that wraps around your home, creating additional space on two sides.
Perfect for large families
If your family is growing and you need more living space, a wrap around extension can give you this by taking a bit of space from your garden and using the dead space in your property’s side alleyway. This helps to create new space while simultaneously making use of otherwise ‘wasted’ space such as corridors or under stairs. This can make a big difference to your home, giving you space for your expanding family as well as for entertaining and socialising.
Open up your kitchen
A wrap around extension is great if you dream of a large open plan kitchen with dining and living space where the kids can play or do their homework while you get on with cooking dinner. You could have space for a high-spec kitchen with an island or breakfast bar and built-in appliances, opening out on to a dining area which in turn leads to a living area with views across your garden from your bi-fold doors.
Since a wrap around extension creates a lot of new pace, you could even create further rooms, such as a utility room, a downstairs WC or walk-in storage and really maximise your use of your home’s space.
Light and bright
You’ll have a variety of glazing options to create light in your wrap around extension, from large bi-fold doors to skylights and sun tunnels, there are a lot of ways to flood your London home extension with natural light. In addition to this, you’ll be able to design your extension’s lighting with a choice of contemporary and traditional lighting styles including stylish spotlights and decorative light fittings.
