Churston Builders – The Torbay and South Hams Builder. Stunning kitchen extension, family living space and garden renovation in Paignton
Churston Builders built this stunning kitchen extension during 2021/22 in the Broadsands area of Paignton.
This detached property already benefitted from a large garden but was crying out for a more integrated ‘inside out’ living solution that would suit the family and our new found warmer climate. The property had a relatively plain exterior meaning that a contemporary kitchen extension would be easy to integrate. The large garden allowed for a double aspect extension while still leaving plenty of outside space.
The existing patio was cleared to make way for the footings and the block work rose quickly to roof level and was finished with a matching slate finish. To create such a large open space required a whole lot of steel tied into the original structure and carrying the load across the extensive space. The space would stretch from half way through the existing downstairs accommodation all the way to the back of the extension. This gave rise to some interesting internal shapes which, with the addition of bespoke glazing creates amazing internal natural light. With a large surface area of glazing in the east and west ends of the extension plus Velux openings in the roof the whole day’s light impacts the space.
The ultra-clean, two-tone Howdens design kitchen looks stunning against the contrasting herringbone pattern LVT floor and the colour scheme flows throughout the ground floor of the house. The large panelled glazing allows for maximum integration of the outside space which was finished with contemporary porcelain tiling.
