Kitchen extensions worthwhile investments

The creation of a new living space such as a kitchen extension is both a financial and emotional commitment, but is almost always worth it in the end, an industry commentator has suggested.

Writing in the online pages of the Times, Lucy Alexander suggests that homeowners also think about their extension with the potential for changes to be made, suggesting that flexibility is a very important aspect of the design process and should be taken into consideration.

She suggests that people think about location as much as possible before embarking on a construction venture as most things about a build can easily be altered – but not the site.

In related news, industry commentator Donny Sheridan recently wrote in online resource the Sunday Times that the process of creating an extensions is "relatively simple" to carry out.

He added that some homeowners can become emotionally involved in the process, but that a professional builder will remain composed and deal with any issues that crop up.
