side extension

Side return extension ideas

A small project with a huge impact! Side return extensions are particularly popular with owners of Victorian terraced houses as they can transform a narrow kitchen into a generous open plan kitchen/living space – just by using that often dark and under-used strip of your garden.

If you’re looking for a rough cost of a side extension, you can see our other article here which approximates a construction budget of between £20-50khttps://designfor-me.com/project-types/extensions/much-side-return-extension-cost/

 

Who are we?

Design for Me is a free platform to help you quickly find the right design professional for your home project. My name is Emily Barnes and as a residential architect myself, I started Design for Me after finding that talented and innovative smaller firms and individuals, who are perfectly placed to design new homes, extensions and/or renovations, can often get buried under the online profiles of large commercial companies.

Before Design for Me, the right architect was very difficult to find!

Once you register your project, we’ll match it with 100s of top architects for extension project, and you can see who may be available and eager to work on your project straight away.


Here are some side return extension ideas from some of the most inspiring architects on Design for Me. Click on the images to see that architect’s full profile and shortlist them for your project…
