The Importance of Windows and Glazing for Your House Extensions in South London

Get your window design right and your house will look and feel amazing, add value to the property, and improve your well-being to boot! Get it wrong, and this may result in some rooms not getting enough light, the design may not blend harmoniously, and you might be missing out on energy-saving benefits.

Glazed Extension Ideas for Your Kitchen


A popular option when designing kitchen spaces is glass rooflight (aka roof lanterns). Overhead window glazing with rooflights is ideal for bringing in the maximum amount of natural light to the interior. For a dramatic design statement, glass roofs can be incorporated for a sleek and contemporary look. Both of these glazed extension ideas can make the room lighter and make it feel more open.

Triple Glazed Windows

There has been a recent trend towards installing triple-glazed windows over double-glazed for kitchen extensions. Like all other glazing, triple-glazed windows have pros and cons too.


  • Extremely energy efficient.
  • Keeps your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
  • Soundproof


  • Expensive
  • Provide the same amount of energy efficiency as double-glazed glass which is less expensive.

Glazed Corner Extension

Glazed corner extensions involve joining two sides of a room (a corner) with glass panes. This is a great way to create an indoor-outdoor space that brings lots of natural light into the room.
