Sunrooms are a great way to add a light and airy space to your home. An even though the name suggests only for use in the sun, they should be a great addition to your home throughout all four seasons, especially as Glasgow isn’t known for having too many sunny days.
A sunroom is different to its cousin the conservatory, that is a fully glazed glass/plastic box. A sunroom is a much more permanent feature and it built in harmony with your home and it’s aesthetic. It is different from a normal extension, as a sunroom gets its name from the use of large windows in the roof and big open doors that usually open onto a garden area. Many people have a sunroom installed next to the kitchen to give the home a much more open plan feel, and often have a patio or outside seating area just outside the doors. This is a great way to open your home and bring your garden and interior together.
They are also a great idea for those who are environmentally conscious. In the lighter months, they offer up a great abundance of light that will spread into the near rooms, with no need to turn the lights on.
Depending on the design you choose and what material your house is built from, sunrooms are often built from brick, timber and glass or PVCu, and sometimes a combination of all four. Unlike a conservatory, the roof will be made of a more conventional structure, adding light through large Velux style windows or something similar.
As a sunroom should be an architectural enhancement to your home, the materials you use should either match or complement the existing building. Matching roof tiles, bricks and/or cladding are all ideas to make this new addition feel like part of the home.
