Kitchen Extension with Bi Folding Doors:  Windows  by ROCOCO,
Loading admin actions …

Have you ever looked at your kitchen and wished it was just a little bit bigger? Well, many people do and how they garner that extra space is by building kitchen-specific extensions, at the rear of their homes. 

A fantastic way to not only expand your home, but also add serious style and value, these beautiful extensions are fast becoming the norm, with the only variations being size and style. So we wanted to show you a few examples, to see if anything acts as the final push to go ahead! 

Ask any architect and they'll tell you that a functional kitchen extension is a common sense and value-added addition to your home, so let's look at some of our favourites and see which ones you like!

1. Huge, light and bright, thanks to light wells in the ceiling, this extension has totally opened up the ground floor of an already lovely home and created a gargantuan kitchen.

2. Your kitchen extension doesn't need to be massive to have seriously practical applications! You won't even need to sacrifice too much garden, if you plan properly!

4. Extensions are so stylish now that we think they actually add to the aesthetic of period homes now! This beautiful dog-leg version has allowed for an amazing patio section to be created as well!

5. Regardless of how 'awkward' you think your home might be to extend, there will always be a solution! This funky black-clad installation has absolutely inspired us to think outside the box!

6. How about a kitchen extension that thinks it is a conservatory? All the glazing here has made for such an open and bright interior space and looks amazing from the outside.

7. Choosing an extension style that matches your home perfectly will make your new kitchen addition look so seamless and like it has always been there! Perfect for older, more traditional properties!

8. Simplicity can be a great guiding force and with the right lighting, you don't need fancy roof glazing to make a stunning kitchen extension! The bi-fold doors here add such a great connection to the garden.

9. Wow! What a huge space! The best part s that the extension isn't actually that large, as you can easily open-plan your interior to maximise the area potential!

10. If a simple garden is all you need, why not go all out and choose a huge but simple extension that juts out into your outdoor space? The added roof windows here really draw in the natural light!

13. We actually like a mix of old and new styles, so this contemporary metal extension really works with a traditional terrace house. It's phenomenal just how much larger the interior has become!

14. If you open-plan your new and old kitchen spaces, you can get that generous kitchen you've always wanted, without needing a massive extension at the rear. We love how natural this one looks, with the garden.

15. You need to be careful not to create a dark or claustrophobic kitchen extension, which is why so many people choose to add modern glazing. The huge strip of glass here really opens up the whole room!

16. We adore this extension, as the white styling really maximises the perceived size of the room and being so stylish, you hardly notice that the garden is smaller now!
