If you are looking to make a garden room as an addition to your home, there are things that you should consider when you are going to get a kit. What style should I choose? What styles are there to choose from? Do I need to get anything special? All of these are valid questions and can be answered easily with a little bit of digging. The best place to start is to know what you want.
What style should I choose, and what styles are there to choose from?
There are several styles of garden room or sun-lounge add-on kits that exist. Victorian additions are among the styles that are available. These are generally round with a curved roof and have large bay windows encased in frames. With either three or five sides, you can have your choice of a larger or smaller building structure. The frames can be bespoke metal and wood, with several different kinds of finishes. The windows are just as customisable, with glass as an option as well as clear PVC for the window panes in the windows and doors. Victorian style sun-rooms are very popular due to their stunning designs.
If you are looking for something different you might try building a Georgian style sun-room. Georgian design dictates large single panel windows at the top and smaller panel windows at the bottom. The overall shape is rectangular with a larger frame than usual and is combined with brick or stone accents, as well as the possibility of decorative mouldings on the side. These too, can come with PVC windows and doors. Most of the windows that are attached to these kinds of sun-lounges swivel out towards the outside of the home.
There is also what’s known as a ‘lean to’. A ‘lean to’ is almost Georgian in nature with its square styles, but you can dress it up to whatever you want it to look like with windows in the multi-paned styles of Victorian styles. The ‘lean to’ is attached to the house and sits on an existing foundation. It has an awning feel to it and is also a great addition to your home as a sun-lounge. You can also combine the designs and make a huge conservatory for your family and friends to enjoy. Adding a conservatory is a great way to expand the size of your home without having to move house.
When you build a conservatory, or if you are thinking of building one, remember to choose wisely and think about the design that you want. You want something that compliments your house, and if any of the pre-packed styles don’t suit, you can always find a designer to build a bespoke conservatory just for your home. Of course these will cost considerably more, however, many of the reputable companies offer finance options to help you spread the cost over a number of years. Whichever option you choose having a room which enables you to enjoy your garden without having to actually go outside is becoming increasingly popular. conservatory roof replacement
