It’s a classic renovation dilemma: you live in a period property with all the features you’d expected of a handsome old building – but you need to extend for extra space.
Thanks to Channel Four’s Grand Designs we know that fitting a modern glass extension to a traditional period cottage is often more complementary and gracious that trying to mimic the style of the original building. A clear contrast is often far better than a close match.
A traditional home can be transformed into a breathtaking style statement by adding a two-storey wall of glass at the back… or perhaps huge sliding doors for the extension that will open your home into the garden at the touch of a button. Wouldn’t adding windows and doors like this be great?
