Explore Side Return Extensions by Oakley Green Design and Build


In the ever-evolving landscape of home design, the demand for practical and aesthetically pleasing living spaces continues to influence architectural trends. A rising trend in this space is the adoption of side return extensions. Oakley Green Design and Build specialises in crafting customised side return extensions, seamlessly blending functionality with a contemporary aesthetic.

Understanding Side Return Extensions

Side return extensions represent a strategic and innovative approach to home expansion, specifically targeting the often-underutilised space at the side of a property. This type of extension is particularly popular in urban environments where maximising space is crucial. Unlike traditional rear extensions, side return extensions involve extending the living space into the usually narrow passageway that runs alongside the main house, connecting the front and rear portions.

Tailored Solutions for Every Home

One size does not fit all, and at Oakley Green, we recognise the uniqueness of each home. Our design and build team collaborates closely with clients to create bespoke side return extensions that align with their specific needs, lifestyle, and architectural nuances. From contemporary sleek designs to more traditional aesthetics, our portfolio boasts a diverse range of projects, showcasing our commitment to personalised solutions.

Expanding Your Living Space

One of the primary motivations behind opting for a side return extension is the expansion of living space. Whether you envision a spacious kitchen, a stylish dining area, or a cosy family room, Oakley Green’s extensions seamlessly integrate with your existing home, unlocking the full potential of your property.

Bringing the Outdoors In

Natural light is a cornerstone of modern living, and our side return extensions prioritise this aspect. Through strategic placement of windows, skylights, and glass doors, we ensure that your extended space is flooded with natural light, creating a bright and welcoming atmosphere. This not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also contributes to a healthier and happier living environment.

Incorporating Smart Technology

Oakley Green embraces the future by integrating smart home technology into our side return extensions. From state-of-the-art kitchen appliances to automated lighting and climate control, our designs reflect a commitment to enhancing convenience and efficiency in your daily life.

Sustainable Solutions

As advocates for environmentally conscious design, Oakley Green incorporates sustainable materials and energy-efficient features into our side return extensions. From eco-friendly construction practices to energy-efficient windows, our projects are designed with a focus on minimising environmental impact.

Navigating Planning Permission

Navigating the complexities of planning permission can be a daunting task. Oakley Green takes the stress out of the process by guiding clients through the planning permission requirements, ensuring a smooth and hassle-free journey from concept to completion.
