Today in most homes, the design of the kitchen has become inclusive and central. Many also incorporate an area for dining. A bigger kitchen gives you so much more workspace and a common area for the family. This becomes especially beneficial as the children grow bigger. You may even be able to have a centre island with extra storage space, which will change the aesthetic of your kitchen, giving it a warm vibe as the island acts as a focal point. A large functioning kitchen adds appeal and value to your house. Below are some points that we help you with when planning and executing your kitchen expansion.
The most important step is a functioning design that incorporates your wishes along with practical purposes. It should make use of natural lighting as far as possible while still being easily accessible through the house. The extension should be done in proportion to the rest of your house. An open-plan kitchen is perfect for a modern household and should be done in the most seamless way possible, so as to flow naturally with the feel of the house. We help you design an extension that looks natural both from the inside and out whilst being practical and aesthetically pleasing.
This should be done with careful consideration. A clear and honest idea about your budget will help the entire extension project continue smoothly to completion. First and foremost, the design concept and its cost should be taken into consideration before you start planning on the appliances and other extras for the kitchen. The actual structural changes should take precedence. We can provide you with practical tips on how to save while achieving your dream kitchen such as open shelving as opposed to closed cupboards. Another good tip is to always include a 10 % contingency fund to cover any unexpected extra costs.
This is your chance to create your dream kitchen within your dream home. Look for inspiration online or through magazines to see the latest kitchen designs. Unlike before when kitchens were concealed towards the back of the house, the kitchens of today form a central hub for the home where all the meals are prepared and enjoyed. It has a warm and vibrant atmosphere while enjoying an open, uncluttered and naturally lit setting.

“Originally, we’d planned on this being a property to rent out to others. Since the loft conversion, we’ve fallen back in love with the place – and have now decided to move back here.”
“I would like to thank GDB for all of their hard work, ideas and inspiration and for being so approachable and easy to deal with during the our rear extension. I would happily recommend them to anyone thinking of starting a building project”

“Converting our loft bedroom by adding a bathroom pod included replacing stairs and refurbishing the existing bathroom below. We are absolutely delighted by the results and the entire process was as painless as could be, given we continued to live in the house throughout the build. We were introduced to our team at the beginning of the project and Ivan, the lead builder, was excellent. The team were friendly and courteous, always conscious of leaving as little mess and disruption as possible and we had no concerns whatsoever. The end result was as per the agreed price and we couldn’t be more delighted. Thoroughly recommended and very happy to give personal testimonials.”
