Modern lifestyles demand more flexible and integrated spaces that can accommodate eating, entertaining and family living.

In the current economic climate, extending your existing home is often the most cost-effective way of creating the additional space you need. Whether it’s another bedroom, a home office or an open-plan living area, I can advise you on what your options are for an extension, and the best way to make it work.

Kitchen extensions

Do you have to put up with a galley kitchen? Are you tired of spending time alone in the kitchen? Struggling to create an area in which you can eat as a family? Extending your kitchen can give you a far more flexible eating and living space.

Having designed numerous kitchens I can advise you on how to extend your kitchen to make it more life-friendly.

You can utilise part of your garden, an underused side return, or the garage to create your dream extension. To extend the kitchen even further you could consider inserting bi-folding doors to the exterior wall, for example – giving you light, as well as allowing the garden  into your living space. I can advise you on these and a number of other solutions to make your kitchen work for you and your family

I can also submit the planning application on your behalf and do the necessary work to obtain building regulation approval.

“We have worked with Martin for over three years. Our collaboration began in 2008 when we asked him to design an extension to our kitchen. The final plans involved extending the kitchen as well as moving the existing garage and utility room. Martin assisted us in choosing a builder and at every turn we found his help invaluable. The work has received plaudits from friends and professionals alike. He has always been most generous with his advice and the persons he recommended have all been excellent.” BL &PL, Withdean, Brighton
