Modern Kitchen Extension in Mapperley, Nottingham

When East Midlands homeowners want to completely change the look and feel of their property, a side or rear kitchen extension is often the answer. Offering impressive returns of anywhere between 5% and 15%, the additional space, light, and enjoyment that glazed kitchen extensions can deliver is quite remarkable. Kitchen extensions are also popular additions to semi-detached homes as they can offer that extra bit of privacy that many semi-detached homes generally lack.

Costing considerably less than moving to a new house, the following case study took us to Mapperley in north-eastern Nottingham – setting the benchmark for quality, performance, and affordability.

Pain Points


Modern Kitchen Extension before

The kitchen is often the heart of the home. This East Midlands family echoed that sentiment; however, their home was lacking the crucial cohesion between the kitchen and the surrounding space that many of us take for granted. Imagining a kitchen-come-dining space perfect for entertaining whilst seamlessly connecting with the garden, their dreams of a contemporary open plan kitchen/diner space soon became a tangible reality.

The Solution

Elaborate Kitchen Extension with Aluminium Bifold Doors


Modern kitchen extension after

Created with a 6 metre by 3 metre projection and a new opening between the house and the new glazed extension space, full Building Regulations and SAP calculations were taken care of by the experienced Stormclad team. For the ultimate connectivity, 5 pane Origin aluminium bi-folding doors were chosen in Anthracite Grey to smoothly match the rest of the property. Gardens are still a highly sought-after property feature, so particular care was taken not to reduce the garden space too much. Slimline aluminium bifold doors are always the first choice when it comes to the ultimate open-plan living space, without the headache of major renovations.

Enlightening SMARTGLASS® Ultra 86 glazed roofing system

To keep this family warm and cosy all year round, we incorporated a matching Anthracite Grey Ultraframe roof with Ultra 86 roof glazing. Achieving the perfect balance of warming sunshine and cooling shade throughout the day, year-round enjoyment comes as standard with a Stormclad installation.
