Often referred to as the heart of the home, it’s no wonder kitchen extensions are one of our most commonly received requests. Not only do they open up a much used space, but a kitchen extension is a great way of adding value to any property. Depending on the size of the project, and your location, a typical kitchen extension can cost anywhere between £20K to £50K + VAT.
However, the type of extension will impact on the cost. All prices are approximate, and exclude glazing and kitchen fittings, as there are a range of products and price groups to consider.
Here are some options you might explore…
Side return extension
The small but mighty option. To look at, a side return extension isn’t a huge add on to your property, but often generates a lot of new space within your kitchen. Not only that, they can be very reasonable in terms of cost.
Side return extensions bring your property out into an alleyway at the side of your home, if one is present. They’re often added onto period properties, especially those dating from the Victorian era. By adding in new sources of light and opening up space, this little extension would take any kitchen to the next level.
On average, in London, you can expect to pay £50k + VAT and a lot less in other areas of the UK.
