Today we discuss a side return extension.

A side return extension stretches your home into the alleyway at the side of your house and is very typical on Victorian or other types of period properties. Side return extensions are often a relatively small extension, but it can have a great impact on the look and feel of your home. Sometimes clients combine a side return extension with a rear extension to create what is called a wrap-around extension. Either way, a side return extension is fantastic for housing a larger kitchen and dining area.

Cost effective as well as impactful, a side return extension can be a great way to add some living space to your home if you don’t have a big garden or if a rear extension is not possible. The side alley on most houses is typically dead space that is little used. This type of extension can be utilised on any property that has a side alley, including ground floor flats as well as new builds and investment properties.


Get the kitchen of your dreams This makes side return extensions brilliant for creating contemporary open plan kitchen diners, perfect for entertaining and making more living space for a growing family – much more cost effective than moving house in London. It also offers an opportunity to redesign your kitchen. You could opt for a luxury kitchen with a dining and living area that’s perfect for cooking while the kids play – and it’ll add value to your home too.

Side extensions run along the length of the existing room, meaning you can flood the space with light from above using skylights. This means you’ll have a space filled with natural sunlight, making it bright and airy, particularly if you combine it with bi-folding doors or sliding doors that open out on to your patio or garden.
