Which plan is better?

Hi all,

We are doing a home renovation on our 100 year old house including a new 20sqmsingle storey rear extension. The total floor area will be approx 58sqm. The house is relatively narrow and does not have a downstairs WC


We are going back and forth between 3 plans and are really struggling to decide on the best option. We would appreciate any tips/comments/advice on which would be better and why.

- We don't want 100% open plan.

- We do want to add a toilet.

- A utility space is nice, but not a dealbreaker


Option A:

Split the house front/back and move internal wall.



Pro: Lots of glazing, bigger sitting room

Con: narrow EC, opens on to kitchen


Option B:

Split house left/right and open snug with pocket doors.



Pro: cheapest, bigger utility/WC, hides awkward staircase overhang

Con: small snug, less glazing, awkward room shape


Option C:

Like option A but with a central WC/Utility space



Pro: toilet opens on hall, rectangular kitchen, lots of glazing

Con: Smallest kitchen floor area, not as nice a kitchen layout.
