Garden room extensions have recently become very popular, over the last 40 years or so conservatories were the ‘must have’ room addition and they are still extremely popular. However, as a property owner who has experienced both conservatories and other types of extensions I have found that an additional interior space with an insulated solid type of roof provides better flexibility for all year use.
The ability to open up your Kitchen, Dining area or lounge into a usable garden room extension throughout the year is a massive bonus. I’m not totally against conservatories, I do like them especially on those super bright Spring days when it’s too chilly to sit outside and when Autumn provides the final warmth before winter sets in. In a previous property I have used a large conservatory for wonderful Christmas Day celebrations and parties which then spill out into the garden. Conservatories are also a great way of getting more light into a dark area of a property.
Extra rooms are always welcome though conservatories often need more additional heating to make them comfortable during the winter due to heat loss through the roof.
Many people must agree with me about a more solid construction for additional rooms as there are now more Garden room extension companies around than ever before. Of course a garden room is classed as a more permanent structure than a conservatory and stricter building laws and regulations apply, consequently choosing both recommended and reliable trades people, who will give you the correct advice, is very important.
Increasingly, at Doorsan Ltd we have requests for double doors, folding doors and doorsets for rooms opening onto garden rooms and extensions. French doors are always popular to achieve better access to the garden and now they can be doubled up to provide access into a garden room from your kitchen or lounge areas. Doorsan have a variety of external and internal door sets and also single doors which can be made into folding sets with the appropriate sliding gear. Please give us a call for advice and discuss your options.
