When it comes to choosing a kitchen extension, a kitchen conservatory extension is an option if you're looking for a light and bright kitchen space. However, the combination of a highly glazed solution and the practical needs of a kitchen can require extra planning and consideration.

Ensuring there is sufficient power supply, ventilation, heating and storage space can be tricky when traditional conservatory design favours larger areas of glazing over solid walls and ceilings.
