Kitchen Extension Ideas

Building a kitchen extension is a large undertaking. It is costly and time consuming, but you'll create a better working space for your family. If you have lived in the house for a few years, you will know what needs to be changed in the current kitchen. Moving into a new home and guessing the purposes you will use the extension for may be more difficult.

Building a kitchen extension is the perfect opportunity to add garden space to your kitchen. Add raised beds along the walls to grow a variety of fruit and vegetables. Take it a step further and add a grey waterbed to filter your sink water so that it can be used to water plants or flush your toilet. Add glass walls or a roof to provide the extra light and heat needed to grow plants inside.

Eat-in Diner

Create an eat-in diner in your kitchen extension. Just add tables and chairs to make a dining area. Turn your kitchen worktop into a bar by adding stools on the other side. Make the diner feel retro by adding '80s memorabilia that bring to mind old-fashioned diners.


A common complaint about kitchens is not enough storage space. Building a kitchen extension lets you plan more storage space. Add a pantry style cupboard to store all your food and utensils that are not used every day. Place a floating island unit in the centre of the room; this will add extra storage space and more work surface on which to prepare food.


Bring the outdoors inside, by building a conservatory-style kitchen extension. This makes use of garden space you have available, and by installing a doorway, you can move freely from the kitchen area to outside. Prepare meals inside the kitchen to either enjoy inside the conservatory extension on a rainy day, or outside in the sunshine.
