A Truly Delicious Kitchen ExtensionPublished on 21st April 2016
Mouth watering orangery perfect for kitchen extension
An orangery-style kitchen extension has proved mouth wateringly delicious for a listed Edinburgh property.
We couldn’t resist taking a look at this marvellous kitchen extension once again. The property – a beautiful, listed four-bedroomed apartment located in the gorgeous Murrayfield district of the Scottish capital – was completely renovated, with Apropos proud to be involved in the sympathetic kitchen extension, that involved the company designing, creating and installing the kitchen extension’s bespoke folding sliding door system, aluminium windows and rooflight.
The property occupies the ground floor of a grand Victorian detached property, typical of the city. And, whilst it was difficult to improve the aesthetics of the original building, the kitchen extension has created a sense of elegant vibrancy for the apartment – acting as new home hub for eating, relaxing and entertaining.
The orangery-style kitchen extension is perfect for merging the old with the new, and looks like it has always been there. The Shaker-style kitchen extension radiates an ambience of timeless warmth, combining effortlessly with the living room that is also housed in the orangery extension.
The kitchen extension benefits immensely from a wealth of light that enters via the aluminium windows, folding sliding doors, and rooflight. Even on the dullest of days, the kitchen extension feels light and bright. In turn, they also provide fabulous views of the lovely decked patio and mature garden beyond. Indeed, the addition of folding sliding doors to the kitchen extension allows for the creation of a large indoor/outdoor entertaining area for guests.
Apropos’ high thermal and energy efficiency standards means the kitchen extension will remain warm and cosy all-year-round, with structural U-values of 1.6 W/m²K and centre pane U-values of 1.1 W/m²K.
This Scottish kitchen extension perfectly showcases Apropos’ work. The company’s tradition of high standards and perfect quality is evident in the completed kitchen extension. And whilst this orangery-style kitchen extension is ideal for this property, Apropos is able to design a kitchen extension perfect for any property, from orangeries for more modern properties to conservatory-style kitchen extensions with impressive glazed roofing.
