PROJECT DETAILS

Brief

To open up the entrance hallway, create a modern kitchen / dining space with a utility room, and to add a ground floor shower room. In addition to these layout changes we were asked to improve comfort levels and to decorate.

Design 

The design solution was simple. We took the underused spaces on the ground floor and used them to accommodate the additional shower room and to extend the kitchen diner. An unloved ‘breakfast room’ was swapped for a decent kitchen / dining space. The hall was extended by moving the w.c. into part of the garage, along with the new utility room. Part of the garage was retained as ‘garage’ space.

Construction

Construction was straight forward, with just one piece of structural work which was the removal of part of the original external wall to extend the kitchen space. Other than that the works we carried out were typical RENOVA retrofit works including insulation, elimination of draught, improved heating. We also carried out the typical suite of finishes and fittings, e.g. kitchen, shower room, flooring and decoration.

The result

The same house, modernised for comfort and better use of space. Plus a complete refit and decoration for a contemporary appearance. This level of change is typical of a RENOVA renovation.
