Sunroom extentions are not essential fixtures within the home like a bedroom, kitchen or bathroom, but they can improve your life and add to your property value! These spaces are designed to bring a little of the outdoors into your home – the best of both worlds. For those of you thinking about installing a brand-new sunroom or making changes to an existing one, we have some great design ideas for you!
As with any build, the design must be practical above all else. A Sunroom extension, by definition, are designed to allow natural light in, leading to a number of problems such as overheating and faded furniture. Therefore, it is always a good idea to invest in double-glazed windows with UV protection coatings in order to limit the heat and radiation coming into the room. Polycarbonate roofing can also limit the amount of heat transfer while still letting in lots of natural light. Taking these steps also grants you more freedom with furniture choice as it will limit any fading. Why compromise when you don’t have to?
When it comes to designing the perfect sunroom, there are a number of things to take into account. This includes style, colouring, windows, lighting and flooring. Fortunately for you, we have done most of the hard work and research on your behalf! Without further ado, our top seven sunroom designs:
Colour palettes have an incredible effect on the feel of a room. Therefore, you should pick your colour scheme around the feelings you want to provoke. For example, luscious greens make us think of nature while light blues make us think of the sky and calm oceans. One great way to pick a palette is to look outside the windows of the room and use what you can see. That means trees, plants, flowers, etc. On the other hand, you may want to remove yourself from your normal surroundings and create more of a fantasy, like a beach theme.
Just like your colour palette, the choice of flooring is crucial in a sunroom extension. After all, the floor takes up even more space than the walls thanks to the window-based design. We recommend timber flooring or natural stone.
It can be easy to forget about lighting as the room is based around natural light, but it is still an important part. After all, you still want to use the room at night. We recommend ceiling lights to create that same feeling of light from above. Have dimmer switches installed to alter the atmosphere of the room.
Blinds and shades are good investments when it comes to a sunroom as you may still want your privacy on occasion. On some days, the sun may prove to be a little much too.
If you are looking to grow plants in your sunroom and want even more natural light, you may want to opt for a conservatory as they use even more glass. However, you should put just as much care and effort into the conservatory design as you would a sunroom.
While we have provided some great initial ideas, we recommend that you contact us for expert guidance on your specific property/sunroom extension. Our knowledge combined with your personal vision should result in the sunroom of your dreams!
