Dining rooms are so much more than a space to eat. They’re for entertaining, spending time with friends and family, sharing the events of your day, and even doubling up as a workspace. As with so many multifunction spaces in modern homes, great dining room extensions should support all these important aspects of your lifestyle – whether your home is large or small. Here are some dining room extension ideas to inspire your project, from our design and construction team in London.

Dining room extension in Forest Hill, London

Bold and Glamorous Living in Forest Hill

Dining room extensions can make a strong statement through bold design, as you can see in this dining room extension in Forest Hill. This is a large, full-width extension running along the rear of a terraced home that creates a spacious room for cooking, dining and entertaining. The industrial-chic look is achieved with gold accents, rich colours, and elegant Crittall-style iron doors that let plenty of natural light – along with garden views – flood into the space.

Dining room extension in East Dulwich, London

Everything a Family Needs in East Dulwich
In smaller properties, every square metre of space needs to be put to the best possible use, and this dining room extension in East Dulwich shows just how much difference a custom design can make! With a side return and rear extension, this terrace is transformed into a modern, stylish, and spacious entertaining and dining area. The extension is brightened and made more spacious through the use of large skylights, while the full-length bifold doors allow you to incorporate the outdoor entertainment space with the indoor space to make it even larger.

Room to Grow in Richmond

When it comes to family living, there’s no such thing as too much space. In this Richmond semi-detached home extension, you can experience the best of both worlds through shared space for dining, cooking, entertaining, and relaxing. It’s a space where everyone can come together without stepping on each other’s toes, where parents can entertain and keep an eye on the kids as they play. The two sets of bifold doors work to bring in plenty of natural light as well as expand this space right out into the back garden for easy family living.
