This project in Moortown, Leeds had many factors. As well as building a full extension to the rear of the building, we added a porch, fitted a new bathroom and landscaped the exterior spaces. The finished product left the house considerably larger, also benefitting from a much more modern exterior.
The extension to the rear of the property was created using materials that were very similar in appearance to the original materials of the house. This creates continuity in the design and doesn’t leave the house looking mismatched. We used similar brickwork and roof tiles to achieve this effect. The extension benefits from large windows and French doors opening onto the garden, creating a bright, airy and spacious interior. The new front porch complements the extension at the back of the house and leaves the house looking sleek and modern. We hung the new front door, which also has frosted windows running vertically alongside to give the porch some natural light. The addition of an outside light and hanging basket bracket completes the classic look.
The new extension and porch are complemented by the addition of brand new paving that runs around the exterior of the house. We used a range of landscaping skills at this Moortown property including the laying of new turf in the back garden. The new paving provides a continuous pathway around the property, altering the outside space into one large garden area.
In addition to the new extension, porch and external landscaping, we also redesigned a bathroom for this property. The bathroom was completely redecorated with a new, sleek design that incorporated modern touches into a classic tiled bathroom. We outfitted the bathroom with rectangular travertine tiles that complemented the matching, lighter floor tiles and lined up perfectly with the horizontal decoration on the bathroom mirror. We added strips of mirrored tile and a contemporary radiator to give the whole room a modern touch.
