Kitchen Extensions in Whitstable
A Professional Building Company

Kitchen extensions are a popular choice for home improvement in Whitstable. They increase space, natural light and property value, plus they are the ideal way to create an open-plan kitchen-diner suitable for modern living. And if outdoor space is on the smaller side, this does not mean our builders can’t add house extensions. At Faryearny Building Services, our building company carries out projects and building services of all sizes, including side-return, rear-facing and wraparound home extensions.

If you’re lacking in inspiration for a layout to beautify your kitchen, our design and build service will assist you with these aspects of an extension or conversion.

The designs that we will explore on this page include:


Choosing a Suitable Layout

U-Shaped Kitchens

This layout works well in open-plan spaces and smaller kitchens too. Fitting the spine of the units to a long wall with the open part facing the rest of the room will conserve as much floor space as possible while maintaining easy access to all cupboards and drawers. We recommend basing the layout around essential elements such as the cooker, sink and fridge for a practical starting point.

With lots of storage and worktop space, we can use one side of the u-shape to create a makeshift island or breakfast bar, and the other for efficient food preparation. 

L-Shaped Design

L-shaped kitchens are another option for creating that modern open plan feel with both larger and smaller kitchen extensions. Plus this shape can be centred around an island or dining table to create a sense of openness and incorporate a relaxed dining area. This layout provides the perfect balance between the cooking and dining areas with defined boundaries that help to keep the space organised.

Our building company can also maximise bedroom, living room and play space with our expert design and build service and stunning home extensions, available to clients in Whitstable.

As with kitchen extensions, there are several factors to consider before we begin constructing house extensions. Faryearny Building Services will always pay close attention to details, with an in-depth approach that allows us to plan all aspects of the job so we meet your needs in the agreed timescale.

Galley Kitchens

This layout is a less obvious choice for kitchen extensions, but if you are extending backwards, perhaps into a narrow space, this is the most practical layout. The addition of windows in between cabinets will increase natural light to open up the space, and French doors will facilitate a seamless flow into the garden complete with charming aesthetic appeal.

The benefits of home and kitchen extensions are practically endless. Families who are used to being cramped into a narrow space will have more room for family meals, working from home and socialising with guests at their Whitstable property.

Our building company’s design and build service is ideal and can be used in conjunction with kitchen and house extensions, or other services. As experts in carpentry and joinery, our contractors will create efficient storage solutions to suit any client requirements and maximise space at your property.
