01 HOUSE EXTENSION IDEAS

I absolutely love doing house extension plans and this is particularly so if the house hasn’t been extended before. Adding on a modern extension and transforming the ground floor plan to create a desirable living space never ceases to give me a buzz.

Take a look at the photo above and just look at how a modern steel extension structure blends so well with a period Victorian property. A closer look shows an extended roof overhang which helps to reduce the differences between the interior and the exterior. In effect you might be outside but you think your inside. This also works in reverse and in reducing the differences between the interior and the exterior it creates the illusion of a really huge extension. The same limestone flooring used for the interior and the exterior patio is another essential part of the illusion.

On this fill-in extension we went for a dramatic contrast in the use of Italian white marble flooring to the interior whilst we used weathered slaps to the exterior in conjunction with old stock bricks.

This extension was given a more European feel to match the housing block. The use of a cherry hardwood floor with 60’s furniture and fittings helps to complete the picture.

Once again a modern extension planted on the rear of a traditional stone property in the Cotswolds works really well. The slate flooring really helps to enlarge what is a relatively small extension and the use of borderless glazed panels works really well in that the space appears unbroken.

This particular extension is what we called an Open-Plan extension in that most of the walls fold back or slide out of the way when the weather permits. Once again the overhanging roof canopy plays an essential part in numbing the senses as to whether you are outside or inside.
