I have recently purchased a 1930's very typical London terraced house- little rectangular kitchen at the back next to a formal separate dining room. I have attached the floorplan. I am going to build the wall back up between the reception room and dining room and reinstate the door and then knock down the wall between the dining room and kitchen. My plan has always been for a open plan kitchen diner and I would ideally love to put the kitchen on the far left wall in the dining room and turn the existing kitchen area into a space for my table. This would open it up a lot and be more usable. I also want to put a conservatory on the back of the dining room. The drain is located under the kitchen window (next to where the existing sink is) So my eventual question is what do you think the problems I may encounter are? Would it be mainly around drainage? I have yet to get any quotes just would like to approach the professionals with more of an idea!! Thanks everyone
Thoughts, in no particular order:
Where's the water heater? The longer the pipe run between it and the kitchen, the longer you'll be waiting for hot water. There are instant hot water devices if this is an issue.
The oven will presumably need either an electrical or gas connection.
You're putting the dining table directly under the toilet. How's the sound insulation?
Is the wall you'd be knocking down load-bearing?
