Adding light to family home

The current trend of improving rather than moving house continues as extending the back of the home is a great way to add extra rooms. Often these renovation projects involve the creation of open plan living spaces that also feature expansive views out into the garden.

How doors from open living transformed a St Neots property.

Open Living assisted in the transformation of a detached property in St Neots, Cambridgeshire.

The homeowners were extending their home to create a new kitchen with living area and a new upstairs bedroom . The building consisted of a two storey gable end extension with a grey tiled roof and cedar cladding.

The property owners wanted to create an open aspect to the new living area. In addition a new kitchen formed a large part of the extension.

Origin aluminium bifold doors in different configurations added style.

The design of the extension features a five pane set of opening out bifolding doors to the front elevation and a three pane set of doors, also opening out to the side elevation. These were separated on the outside corner by a cedar clad column. Both sets of bifolding doors fold in one direction.

The doors were powder coated in a dark grey polyester powder coated finish and set upon a matching aluminium cill. Satin stainless steel door handles and black hinges completed the look.

To the kitchen area we provided an open out french doors also in a matching colour and hardware. The advantage of these doors enable access out into the garden during the winter months without having to fold a set of doors back.

Origin doors add a great feature to bedrooms as well as living areas.

To the upstairs bedroom a set of opening in french doors were provided. These flood the bedroom with lots of light as well a having the facility to fully open when needed. The French doors were also powder coated in a matching colour and feature internal handles in a satin stainless steel finish.

All the installation was glazed with the latest toughened safety glass. It features warm edge spacer bars, low emissivity coating and argon gas fill. The quality glass ensures that the new extension retains heat in the winter and keeps all rooms cool in the summer.
