This week on homify, we have been spoilt for choice with a great selection of projects from all around Britain. First we visited a wonderfully charismatic Victorian terraced home that received an ultra cool and modern kitchen and dining extension to a list of the Top 10 most beautiful homes in Britain, which actually caused a tiny bit of controversy. We then looked at great ways to maximise small gardens and were inspired by a fantastic selection of rustic style kitchens.

If you somehow missed the action, here is again the top 5 projects, chosen by all our readers as their favourites this week. 

1. Modernising A Victorian Terraced Home

Beautiful, striking, and filled with character and charm, Victorian terraced homes are fantastic examples of true British architecture. However handsome, they can often prove a bit difficult when trying to maximise space and living arrangements. Synonymous as being a little too cramp, due to their small interiors, nowadays they are being reinvented and updated to meet modern demand for living. 

This project is one such example, where the owners extended the rear of the house to accommodate for a new kitchen and dining area. Complete with side glazing and a warm and cosy interior, this home is ready to meet the accommodation needs of the young owners 21st century living standards. In case you missed this modern extension, take a full tour, here!

What better way to end the week, then with a list of the most beautiful houses in Britain! We did our best to give you what we thought was a list of the most distinctive, delightful and notable houses from across the UK. It was almost impossible to choose just 10, but we believe this list offers a great insight into the many varied architecture styles found across Britain today.

Nonetheless, it doesn't mean that you cannot utilise the space you have and create an ideal outdoor environment! Which is exaclty what this Ideabook on ideas for small gardens does!
