Extending & renovating a Victorian Terrace

Bloom were appointed to completely renovate and extend this Victorian terrace which had not been touched for 50+ years.

Creating a large kitchen extension

The brief was to create a large kitchen extension and adding on a new floor at loft level both over the main property and the rear addition.

Retaining the original features

As the property had been untouched for so long, many of the original features were still there and the client wanted to retain as many features as possible in the completed project


  • Structural work
  • Epoxy flooring
  • Working with reclaimed materials
  • Fire curtains
  • Tiling
  • Brick laying
  • Plastering and painting
  • Electrics and plumbing
  • Carpentry

The back of the property was propped and the existing structural walls removed and supported by a new steel frame.

The roof was removed and rebuilt to allow for the new loft conversion. The ceilings in the master bedroom were lowered to get more head height in the top rooms.

“Reclaimed sanitaryware and tiles combined with modern finishes such as resin flooring and the sliding doors created a beautiful characterful house.”

Ross Malone, Bloom

A fire curtain was used to enable the open plan feel on the ground floor.

Lots of the materials used in the project were reclaimed antiques and care taken to preserve and restore features throughout the project.

Traditional and modern

The end result is a project that is both traditional and modern with the extension area being very obviously new, clean and minimal with the original parts of the house Victorian, decorative and grand.
