How a David Salisbury kitchen extension will transform your home
8 September 2017
One of the most desirable features in today’s modern homes is a large open-plan kitchen and often the best way to achieve this sought-after look is via a kitchen extension.
As one of the most frequently requested home improvement projects in recent years, adding a kitchen extension has become a David Salisbury design speciality.
There are a number of current factors that are encouraging us to do up our existing homes, as opposed to moving to a new property. As has been widely reported, the recent increase in stamp duty for more expensive properties, the lack of good quality homes on the market in key areas and the high price competition amongst that are for sale all combine to influence this trend. Recent research conducted by Halifax Insurance found that total planning applications had increased by some 27% over the past five years – more so in London, where the increase was more like 60%.
We seemingly have an insatiable desire to do up our homes and here at David Salisbury we are seeing continuing demand for kitchen extensions, whether they be in the form of an orangery, oak building or even a conservatory.
With the exception of some smaller scale projects, however, the vast majority of building extensions will require planning permission. This is another area where David Salisbury is different from other similar companies, in that we employ planning experts to advise on what is required, meaning your planning application can be submitted with minimal delays.
Of course, there are a number of benefits that result from adding a kitchen extension – quite apart from adding to the value of your home, they will also increase the overall size and floor area, meaning a larger, open-plan kitchen can be created.
Much has been written about the importance of the modern kitchen – it’s the room in our homes that we tend to spend most of our time in, whether it be cooking, dining, entertaining, relaxing or simply enjoying some family fun.
