A side extension with a knock through into the kitchen
This compact detached home needed plans to accommodate a larger kitchen, to offer some balance to the layout of the property. The owners felt the lounge was disproportionately large in comparison, we drew up plans for a single storey side extension with a knock through into the kitchen, which doubled it in size. No other structural changes were made to the front of the property, which included a WC and a lounge that remained fully in intact.
The size of the property didn’t offer too much space for additional storage, the plans lead to the formation of a storage room, immediately to the left of the entrance to the house. A connecting door creates a walkway between the storage room and the newly expanded kitchen. A dividing wall created a utility room with a separate sink, before entering the main area at the rear of the property. A new window was installed along with a set of French doors and a Velux roof window added a new source of natural light into the kitchen.
“I would say your drawings were really good and what I liked is you listened to what we were asking for but had the patience and skill to understand what wouldn’t work from a planning perspective. You were friendly, courteous and efficient and kept us informed as to what happens which is really important.”
Alan & Joe Castle, Paddock Wood, Kent.
“I would highly recommend KCR Design as Keith was very friendly but professional from the start. The drawings he done we really good and made the best of the space in our house. We were over the moon with the outcome and love our new extension”

“I would not hesitate to recommend Keith Rogers from KCR Design. Keith is a talented architect who dealt with the whole process of drawing up plans for our ground floor extension expertly and without fuss. He also saw us through the various stages involved with gaining planning permission and even recommended a reliable local builder who finished the work to a high standard. I would not hesitate to use Keith again.”
Gill & Alan Greenwood, Borough Green, Kent.
“We choose KCR Design because we were impressed by their previous work. Initial plans were drawn up very quickly and we were led through the planning process, being given invaluable advice along the way. The same was true of the Building Regulations. Even when we wanted to change things on the drawings, nothing was too much trouble.”
David Johnston, Chart Sutton, Maidstone, Kent.
“We were very impressed with Keith’s straightforward honesty, right from the outset he always kept us informed. The extension we wanted was difficult because our house is built on a slope, but planning was taken care of and a specification passed building control. We found the whole process of getting planning permission to be painless and would not hesitate to recommend Keith’s services.”
Mr & Mrs Green, Meopham, Kent.
