Side kitchen and loft extension

Stacey and Ed Haynes extended upwards and outwards by 100m² to transform their once cramped bungalow. The new extension has created an open-plan kitchen/diner, whilst dormer windows in the loft have created space for a master bedroom with en suite.

Stacey and Ed Haynes extended upwards and outwards by 100m² to transform their once cramped bungalow.

‘We originally bought this house as a stop-gap, but as it needed a lot of renovation work, we decided to make it our lifetime home. The bungalow felt cramped and dated, so we applied for planning permission to add a single-storey side kitchen extension. At first, we were refused permission to put a second floor on the bungalow, so to create a spacious master bedroom, we chose to add dormer windows to the existing loft. Towards the end of the project, we were granted permission to extend the loft for an additional en suite bedroom. It has worked out perfectly’

In the gallery: (Before) Originally bought as a temporary home for the couple, the bungalow needed a lot of renovation work to turn it into a contemporary home; (After) A side extension created space for the new open-plan kitchen-diner, with French doors to the patio outside. Dormer windows have been added to the roof and part of the loft was extended. (Interior) The spacious new kitchen with a pitched roof and high ceiling. Kitchen units from Neil Lerner have been teamed with Miele appliances.
