Pitched (Hip) Roof - Wraparound - Terraced - L Shaped
Elegance in Peckham

This kitchen is a great testament to how your space can be elegant and functional. The compact surface space in the kitchen supports both cooking or working on the island, a must for a busy family. By keeping the surface tops brightly lit with the skylights, and with pale marble countertops, the kitchen is bright and airy.  Note the beautiful copper wing back chair.

We used Plus Rooms for wraparound kitchen extension in South London. We looked at a number of companies before opting for Plus Rooms. They were the only company that were confident of local council approval and encouraged us to get the maximum extension allowed. They weren't the cheapest but we are very happy with using them and the build has definitely changed our lives, changed how we used our house, and given much needed space to our small young family. It all happened so quickly after getting the planning permission to the build actually starting, it did all work out in the end and very glad to have picked a company that specialised in side returns and were reputable, who really did care about their customers opinion, feedback and recommendations. We didn’t really realise what we had paid for, and I know it sounds stupid now –didn’t realise the price didn’t include a kitchen!  It was only at the kick off meeting we were asked who was doing our kitchen. Plus Rooms were super helpful and recommended a few which we finally settle with Puccini Kitchens, in Brockley to keep the job simple and they had worked with previously before. The design of the building work was a smooth experience, with the rep ended up being the onsite project manager who we really liked and wasn’t a sales person which helped sway us to using Plus Rooms. During the build we wanted to change some of the design (ie having a exposed brick wall and exposed steel beams) of course this came at an extra cost but we are very pleased that we had them done. Even though our timing sounded terrible (during winter, lockdown, home-schooling and working from home!) the build was actually fairly straight forward. There were a few surprises which Plus Rooms informed us about and worked out a solution. Working from home and having the builders around doesn’t sound as ideal but being on site meant we could answer any questions they had or help fix any issues if they came up very quickly. Because they kept us updated on all pricing and changes, we were kept well informed of the costs and even though we spent over our budget, it was all very much what we could afford because there were no surprises or any unexpected costs we didn’t know about. There were a few things we didn’t like (eg the ducting) which we thought could have been planned better but it all worked out in the end and looks amazing now. We really like how the onsite managers kept the builders in-line (for eg asking them to smoke away from the house etc) but having said that they building team were super polite, cleaned up meticulously after every day and kept the site (our home) very tidy the whole way through the build which we really found surprising. Plus Rooms are still in touch with us to deal with any snagging issues but the work was excellent quality and we are delighted with the outcome. For the price Plus Rooms are hard to beat. We would definitely use them again if the need arises. Less
