This West London property has been both modernised and extended courtesy of this contemporary single-storey extension.

Expertly designed, the spacious rear extension includes a new kitchen-diner and snug, as well as a striking raised patio area with an external BBQ and seating area linking the new outdoor area to the new open-plan kitchen space. The building project itself has been finished to the highest standard by London based building contractors Double H.

The full width of the new space is made up of two large bi-folding doors; our XP View bi-folds each span a width of 5.3 metres and stand at over 2.6 metres tall. A large three panel folding door makes up the return of the extension folding away from the structural corner that meets the rear elevation bi-folding doors. The structural posts within the extension have all been cloaked in insulated pressings ensuring the dusty grey RAL colour of 7037 runs consistently throughout the entire wall of panoramic glazing.

Utilising bi-folding doors on both sides of the extension means the side elevation can be opened up out to the new BBQ area, with the option of opening the full rear elevation creating a stunning open space, seamlessly flowing the kitchen out to the garden.

The new space is already bathed in natural light thanks to the wide and tall panels of our XP View bi-folding doors, but the flat roof also contains two of our skyline roof lanterns at 1750mm x 2750mm, expertly positioned over the dining table and new breakfast bar creating light filled, luxurious surroundings to enjoy meals, as well as socialising with friends and family. The modern, minimalist design of our skyline roof lanterns is very much in keeping with this beautiful extension that has been completed with both a quality design led approach, and the finest attention to detail.

This finished result is a strikingly modern extension that greatly increases the footprint of this West London property. Taking full advantage of the large garden the new extension & patio area will really change how the homeowners live and use their home. Encased within panoramic glazing throughout the winter the home will benefit from light, solar heat gain & constant views out to the garden. The Spring & Summer months will allow them to completely open the rear of the house to create a picture-perfect setting to spend time with friends and family or just back in the long, warm days & evenings.

This project is a wonderful example of the impressive spaces you can create with bi-folding doors, they are perfect for London properties where space is at a premium as they easily allow you to connect the house with the garden, making your home feel bigger. Our sliding, patio doors are a great solution also, their slender frames allow even more light into the property when the doors are closed and our range of options means we can offer patio door solutions for any project big or small.
