This lovely detached residence in Stamford ticked all the boxes for the buyer, with the exception of its small kitchen and dining space. Our client wanted to extend out from the back of the old kitchen to create more practical space, for the family to enjoy. They wanted more of a modern larger space, that connected seamlessly to their garden. By introducing large sliding doors, modern flat roof lights and bringing the paving outside level to create a smooth transition to the garden, we were able to create the perfect space. This once dark and smaller area is now full of light and has become a favourite area for this family to enjoy.
This young family want to extend this 60s built property. The brief was twofold, ”we would like a large modern kitchen space that is safe for our young family, practical and easy to keep an eye on the children, but also something that would be good for entertaining, especially in summer”. We introduced the flat roof lights and bifold doors to the garden with a fixed light window, to add as much natural light to this home. The detailing of the stunning black aluminium and timber cladding has transformed this dated property into a modern family home.
The aim here, with an aluminium Orangery, was to extend the kitchen and dining space and really open up the back of the property by taking it out into the fabulous garden. The Atlas roof lantern lets natural light beam through and the dual sliding doors provide a different dynamic with whichever combination they choose – on a nice day, opting to have both fully open for a seamless transition into the garden with flush thresholds. Inside, it boasts a contemporary feel with spotlights, new floor tiles all the way through from the kitchen and underfloor heating, with privacy maintained by the full height back wall.
Being completely satisfied with their new windows and doors, the Martin’s came back to QKS with their desire for a bespoke hardwood Orangery. A large project, we transformed the old layout into something spectacularly different to provide this family with the ultimate living space. A new kitchen area was created and the Orangery formed for a family dining area, opening up the space available and providing a far more practical and desirable footprint. Stamford stonewalling, painted hardwood framework and bespoke hardwood roof lantern were used for the build. All materials chosen were matched internally with traditional French doors, underfloor heating and spotlights to showcase their feature roof and bespoke kitchen.
Bi-fold doors can make the most of the space innovatively, adding versatility and style to your home, making entertaining family and friends more enjoyable. With no barrier between your home and your garden, you can truly get closer to nature, enjoying the fresh air and sounds of the outdoors. A traditional build with opening heritage roof lights and hardwood bi-fold doors further enhanced this listed property, with rooms connected internally with French doors and extended living space utilising otherwise unused space.
Our Orangeries and living spaces not only offer a solution to that much longed for extra space, but will also improve the exterior, bringing worthwhile benefits in terms of the investment made in your property. This home now benefits from a new rear entrance, a boot room and a snug area, creating a more attractive entrance and utilising unused space. The Fraser family wanted to give their property a lift – with traditional reclaimed stone, new doors and windows, all hardwood painted to match, this project exceeded expectations with even the smallest of detail being given the attention it deserved.
