Kitchen Island

Kitchen Extension

Extending your kitchen for open plan living has never been more popular. It not only gives the opportunity for a complete kitchen re-design, but has the added bonus of allowing you to extend your upper floor for additional bedrooms and bathrooms; which is exactly what the growing family of this beautiful home in Ashley achieved with their kitchen extension and we have to say, the results are stunning!

Staying power

Moving home is a costly business and it’s often much more economic to extend your house to make additional room rather than to move. When you have made your house your home, found great schools for your children, love the setting and the friendly neighbours it’s a wrench to leave it all behind.

Kitchen Larder


At Handcrafted Kitchens we are happy to work with your kitchen extension plans at an early stage. We can discuss the whole families requirements of your new kitchen before the build has taken place. This way we can make sure you achieve exactly what you want, creating the kitchen you have always wanted. Whatever the shape or size of your extension Handcrafted Kitchens, your local experts in kitchen design, will be able to provide beautiful bespoke cabinets made to measure.

Classic Shaker Kitchen

In this home we hand-made and installed a Classic, in frame, shaker kitchen in contrasting grey tones, in keeping with the character of house. The kitchen extension has made way for the upper floor to be extended and allows all the children to have their own bedrooms. Even the family pets have their own space with the addition of a Handcrafted Kitchens dog bed!

There is a huge amount of storage space in this open plan kitchen. The family sized American Fridge Freezer sits comfortably behind the kitchen island together with a larder cabinet and tall pull out cabinet. Above the in built dog bed there is a further storage cabinet recessed into the wall and, for even more storage, a walk-in pantry!

Kitchen Island deep drawers

A traditional shaker kitchen mantel with pull out storage either side has been positioned over the large Rangemaster Range Cooker with a splash back in gorgeous midnight gold granite to match the work surface.

The large kitchen island, seating 3 people, incorporates an under mounted sink and further kitchen storage. The deep oak drawers at either side of the kitchen island provide great storage space for all the family’s crockery and kitchen drawers have the added benefit of allowing easy access.

The ‘pop up’ in the kitchen island houses plug and USB sockets to prevent dangerous flexes. The 2 cupboards on the outer aspect of the kitchen island are ideally positioned for housing kitchen table accessories and additional living room storage.
