Adding a glass extension to your property can provide you with valuable additional space, allow in plenty of natural light and create an additional room to your property.

With that being said, here are 6 kitchen and dining room extension ideas to get you feeling inspired!

Upgrade your conservatory to an open plan dining room

If you struggle to fit a dining room table and chairs into your kitchen, you could have a conservatory installed with the purpose of becoming a dining room. Turning your conservatory into a dining room will free up a significant amount of valuable space within your kitchen. Leaving your conservatory open plan into your home can also create the illusion of a larger room.

Elegant dining room

Cream conservatories look especially elegant when used for dining rooms. If you’re trying to achieve a more sophisticated look you should keep to a neutral palette, using warm browns, beiges and creams to complement the space. Choosing a glass roof for your conservatory will allow plenty of warm natural light in and provide stunning views of sunsets at dinner time.

Cosy breakfast nook

Adding a corner sofa or a fitted bench seat with a circular light-coloured table can make for a cosy breakfast nook, working particularly well when you can only accommodate a small conservatory. Adding full height windows will flood your conservatory with beautiful sunlight and give the appearance of more space. Choosing light greys and natural styled décor, such as woven cushions and roller blinds, can create a relaxed and tranquil space the whole family can enjoy. Adding yellow and green accents can add that pop of colour you might be missing. An Anthracite Grey conservatory could carry this style perfectly whilst keeping things modern.

Add an additional room with a bespoke orangery

If a conservatory isn’t to your style, you have the option to go for a bespoke orangery. Constructed with solid brick walls, orangeries provide the look of an extension without the added hassle and provide the choice of closing off the space or leaving it open plan. Adding a beautiful set of sliding doors is a great option when you wish to separate your home from your orangery, without having to compromise on essential light.

Sunlit seating area

You could use a small open plan orangery to create a refined yet practical seating area for guests. Why not try choosing warm neutral paint colours such as Natural Taupe, coupled with cream windows surrounding the orangery. Adding either a big cosy sofa or a fashionable rattan sofa can create somewhere for your guests to sit and be entertained whilst you’re cooking. Adding a coffee table in the centre can also provide you with an extra living area.

Extend your kitchen into your conservatory

You may think you can’t use your new conservatory as an active part of your kitchen but you’re wrong! Although conservatories are made up of mostly glazing you do have the option to include a dwarf or half wall that you can place kitchen counters against, providing you extra storage space for cutlery and crockery. Another great option would be to add a kitchen island in the centre of your conservatory, this can double up and provide you with additional storage as well as a seating area. Using neutral tones will create an open and airy feel.

With the professional help of Wolverhampton Glass staff we decided to replace our patio door with an updated model seen in their showroom. The surveyor arrived on time and approved the installation. We were kept in contact throughout the process. Fitting date and time were arranged. Fitters, Ashley and Dave arrived at the appointed time, did a brilliant job and left everywhere clean and tidy.

From start to finish the entire team at Wolverhampton Glass have been very helpful, reliable and conducted work to a very high standard. New lean to warm roof looks great compared to old Edwardian styled conservatory. The teams on the job were all polite, clean and made sure the work was completed in stated time frame. The third party contractors (plasterer, electricians) also very good.
