Modern kitchen extension design in a London home with open corner sliding
Many homeowners are opting to stay put and refurbish and extend their homes rather than move, and this project is an excellent example of how extending your home can completely transform it. The traditional kitchen was refurnished and expanded with high performance glazing solutions installed to provide natural light in the internal kitchen space.
An elegant interior deign style was chosen with white, grey and royal blue accents being the main colour scheme. The brick wall that ran along the side of the home was restored and given a new lease of life and kept as a feature wall in the new living space.
With a large island in the kitchen and a contemporary dining table that seats up to eight, the homeowners now have the perfect space to entertain guests. To the rear of the extension is a new living space enclosed with minimal windows sliding doors in an open corner configuration. This is the perfect space for the homeowners to relax and be close to nature.
Corner opening configurations are extremely popular for sliding doors, as they allow that corner of the room to be completely opened up and merged with the outdoors. This combined with the completely flush threshold of our sliding door system forges a strong boned between indoors and out.
With such a slim frame around the sliding doors, even when closed the space still have that connection to nature and has the added benefit of allowing natural light to flow into the home basically unobstructed. The door was also installed with a flush threshold drainage system.
This high performance sliding glass door, which is PAS 24 certified and has fully thermally broken framing profiles, allows a vast amount of natural light into the internal kitchen spaces thanks to the minimal framing.
minimal windows sliding doors were installed as part of a large glazing package that was designed and installed by IQ Glass, the sole UK supplier of minimal windows systems.
Bespoke structural glass panes were also installed in the new living space including a one used to make a large frameless window at the end of the dining table.
Gable end glazing sits above the large frameless window and the minimal windows sliding door at the rear of the property, creating a unique design that enhances the overall extension design whilst helping to maximise the flow of light. All high glazing solutions were provided natural light in every corner from each angle of the glass kitchen extension.
