Have you recently bought an outdated Victorian terrace property? Or maybe your family is growing and you’re finding that your current Victorian terrace home is getting a little cramped? These homes are ideally suited to extensions, and pokey, dark rooms can easily be opened up to create those spacious areas best suited to modern family living. Here are some Victorian terrace kitchen extensions in London homes to inspire your project.
Victorian Terrace Kitchen Extensions in London Homes
This semi-detached Wimbledon home is a classic Victorian terrace property that was waiting for a homeowner with vision to come along. Thanks to a wraparound kitchen extension to the side and rear of the property, a large and welcoming kitchen and dining space that opens up into the garden was created. This extension added 1.6m from the side return and 5m from the original rear wall to create a space that offers a full depth of 7.3m and a generous 4.5m full width. Finished in light wood and pale stone with striking copper fixtures, the new kitchen and dining space is modern, warm, and flooded with natural light from the slim Crittall style doors.
Room to Share in Tooting
Family life is about spending time together, whether it’s entertaining, watching TV, catching up with homework, or simply chatting about your day. This Tooting home’s Victorian terrace kitchen extension does just that, creating a multi-use space for every member of the family to enjoy. Luxurious and modern, it’s warmed by exposed brickwork and lit naturally by full-width aluminium sliding doors and skylights. By extending the rear of the home and expanding into the side return, a generous space has been created to include a kitchen, dining room, and lounge.
In Victorian times, the kitchen was a place for work – and nothing but work. Today, that has all changed, with the kitchen becoming the heart of family life. In this Tulse Hill home, their Victorian terrace extension embodies this, creating a space for creativity, contemplation, and companionship. Large-scale glazing prevents the new space from being too dark and invites nature into the home, and the small sitting area at the rear is the perfect spot to curl up with a book.
Victorian terrace house extension ideas don’t have to be period piece alterations in order to work, as this Rye Lane home shows. With clean lines, chic minimalist materials, and a modern colour scheme, this extension makes a very attractive contrast with the traditional Victorian architecture without clashing. This wraparound extension allowed the homeowners to redesign the flow of the home’s lower level, creating a generous kitchen, dining and living space as well as a downstairs WC, snug and home office space.
With the right construction and interior design partner, your Victorian terrace house extension ideas can be creative as well as practical. This East Dulwich home uses the generous space created by a large 9 x 2.4 x 6.2m wraparound extension to bring the family’s interests together into one stylish and beautiful space. With book-lined shelves, a sophisticated kitchen and an original fireplace, this project brings old and new together to create a living and entertaining space that is warm, comforting and welcoming. Separated from the garden with a full-width large panel sliding door, the entire space opens up onto the deck to create even more space in beautiful weather.
