What are garden rooms?
Garden Rooms are quickly becoming the next generation conservatories. Either independant or atatched to a building, they allow the occupant to escape and relax in total comfort whilst indulging themselves in the sanctuary of the garden .
These structures take advantage of the surroundings by utilising architectural glazed elements within the design to create a feeling of being outside whilst remaining in the comfort of the building. They have become popular in recent times, as home owners have demanded a move from the more conventional conservatory to a contemporary thermally efficient living space
What is the difference between a garden room and a conservatory?
The modern conservatory began with the invent of polycarbonate roofing systems in the 80's and 90's, where they very quickly became popular using upvc windows and doors to create the framework on which to place the poycarbonate roof.
They do, however carry inherent problems, in so much as they are too hot in Summer and extremely cold during the Winter months. Garden Rooms are designed to maintain a Garden view whilst creating a structure that is aethetically pleasing and very thermally efficient, therefore enabling your investement to be utilised all year round
