Moving house can be a stressful experience but a recent planning law change means you can stay put, avoid the drama and create a stunning, free flowing space.

Following their introduction in 2013, laws allowing larger home extensions have now been made permanent which means you can make plans to extend without a full planning application.

You can build a single-storey rear extension of up to six metres for terraced or semi-detached homes or eight metres for detached homes. Larger single-storey rear extensions can’t be more than four metres high and all extensions must meet building regulations and health and safety standards.

Creating a multi-functional, light-filled space

Avanti Kitchens, Bedrooms and Bathrooms have more than 30 years’ experience of creating open plan living spaces which bind the kitchen with other rooms and the garden to create one large multi-functional, family friendly and light-filled room.

Our designs allow natural light to travel all the way through the ground floor and provide you with a free flowing, social space.

Of course, it’s a kitchen first and foremost but it can also be the focal point in the home - a place where friends or family can convene, chat and keep you company while you’re preparing and cooking food.

As well as looking bigger, an open space provides opportunities for you to identify different zones using kitchen islands and breakfast bars.

It will also add value to your home if you do decide to move on in future.
