Side Return Extensions

If you live in a Victorian or Georgian house or apartment, building a side return extension is a great way of transforming the downstairs kitchen into a light, bright family room. At Build Team, we’ve undertaken a variety of side return projects for clients across London. Whilst the general principle is the same, the variety of design options makes every project individual. Below are the key considerations during the design phase:

  • How many walls do you wish to remove?
  • Do you want the roof to be all glass, or slate with rooflights?
  • What type of doors do you prefer? Folding sliding doors, or standard wooden patio doors.

When you have decided on the structure, you can choose what goes inside – the key decisions are as follows:

  • What type of kitchen do you want?
  • Do you want to have tiles or a wooden floor? 
  • How do you want to heat the room - radiators or underfloor heating?

Finally, you need to decide who’s going to build your extension. At Build Team, we understand the unique challenges associated with side return extensions. From dealing with sensitive party wall issues through to advising on the perfect lighting solution – Build Team have over 10 years experience in all aspects of the project. We offer a full Design & Build service, drawing on our team of in-house architects and expert tradesmen. We assign a professional Project Manager to every build – and we are passionate about delivering excellent customer service.

….and that just leaves one question: the cost!   This depends on your design – but as a guide – we have undertaken projects costing from £28,000 up to £100,000. We can work with a variety of budgets, and we respond to all enquiries with a free quotation, which is fully itemised so you can see exactly how much each stage costs.
