For this period terraced home in Walthamstow, a side-return extension offered the perfect solution to transform the rear of the house and create a spacious new garden-facing kitchen diner that is beyond all proportion to its size.
A large rooflight brings natural light right into the heart of this space and forms a natural break between the old building and new extension. Heritage style Crittall-framed doors, which open up to the rear, and silver-painted exposed steelwork add to the quirky, industrial style.
The wonderfully minimalist dark grey kitchen cabinetry and white quartz worktops exude sleek functionality, with cool vintage-style light fittings completing the look. Gorgeous, colourful terrazzo tiles throughout the room add a playful style twist and contribute to the feeling of space and light.
Upstairs a stylish bathroom has been installed that remains sensitive to the property’s Victorian roots, with traditional heritage basin pillar taps, stand, claw-foot, roll-top bath and WC. The choice of traditional tiles and mouldings complements the timeless elegance of this house.
