Need help to envisage extension and use of space
April 4, 2014 in Design Dilemma
i would like to extend our kitchen/ breakfast room to allow for a bigger table and a sofa but I am having trouble visualising it and how best to extend due to the narrowness of the room. Some ideas would be appreciated.
The kitchen breakfast room was previously an integral garage. It does not go back as far as the rest of the house. The kitchen is approx 2.5m wide by 5m. I would like to extend at the rear and incorporate part of the hallway and the utility room to create a kitchen/ breakfast' family room with room for a comfortable tv area preferably fitting in a sofa. I could extend the rear of the kitchen so it is level across the back of the house or take it out a bit further. If I extend to the same distance as the other rear wall of the house i would end up with an L shaped space which is 4.6m wide across by approx 6.57m long.
I could extend further but will end up with an odd shape.
Please help!

Whatever you consider, you need to consider the outside look as well as the inside. An L shape can actually be an advantage... I would not consider that a stumbling block.

Also take into account any shadowing of existing rooms. A sky tube may be needed in them.
