Introducing the PKL ExtensionPods

If you’re a regular blog reader, you probably know all about our popular modular KitchenPods, and how they are a great option for clients who don’t have existing kitchen facilities but need a permanent solution.

What you might not have realised though, is that our Pods also make a great alternative to a traditional extension, and can be connected to existing buildings to increase the size of existing kitchen facilities.

If you already have a functioning kitchen but are struggling with capacity and require more space, our “ExtensionPods” provide a simple solution. As with a more traditional extension, these Pods can be joined to your existing building and provide additional production, preparation, storage, dishwashing or laundry space. They can be used to either create an open plan layout, or be kept as separate rooms and accessed via an internal door if you’d prefer.

We’ve recently created some options to show the different types of ExtensionPod available, which can provide solutions for different requirements. As always, each of these facilities can be fully customised to suit your requirements in terms of size, equipment and external finish – you could even mix and match between them to create your perfect solution!

PKL DishwashPod and StoragePod


Use one of our hugely popular KitchenPods to expand your existing kitchen with additional production space, allowing you to produce even more meals. This is ideal for places such as schools or care homes, where demand for meals may be increasing over time and putting pressure on the existing kitchen.

This dishwash facility can free up space in your current kitchen by creating a new dedicated area for dishwashing. The addition of a DishwashPod extension would enable you to reconfigure your existing kitchen to maximise your preparation and production space, helping increase your meal capacity.

Create extra storage space in your current kitchen by adding a StoragePod extension. It is ideal for either dry or cold storage, and helps keep preparation and production areas clutter-free. Having additional storage space may also enable you to benefit from buying supplies in bulk, reducing costs, risk and disruption from deliveries. 

PKL PrepPod and LaundryPod


If you need additional preparation space in your kitchen, a PrepPod extension is ideal. Giving you greater capacity to prepare food from scratch, this option can also enable you to increase the number and type of meals you produce.

Our LaundryPod extensions are particularly well-suited to care homes, hospitals, prisons and universities, and are a great way to extend your laundry facilities or add a laundry room to existing communal areas.

Food Cubes
If you don't have room for an extension but need to take the pressure off your existing kitchen, don't forget about our permanent modular Food Cubes. They can be situated elsewhere on site as standalone facilities and can be used to produce light meals and snacks as well as providing an extra servery area.

Hopefully you’re now a little more familiar with the different options available and the huge range of possibilities they provide! If you’re considering a kitchen extension and would like a chat about our different ExtensionPod options and how they could help you, please do get in touch with myself or one of my colleagues.
