Although carports appear to leave your car open to the elements, evidence suggests that parking your car under a carport can prevent your vehicle from frosting over, even in minus temperatures. Carports also protect your car from heavy snowfall that can damage the finish of your vehicle over time.

 

By investing in a carport, you can shed valuable time off your winter morning routine because you won’t have to rush out of bed early to defrost the car!

 

The Science Behind the Carport?

 

When you go outside on a cold night, you’ll notice that you lose heat from your body very quickly. The same thing is happening to your car that’s parked outside.

When your car gets below a certain temperature, water condenses out of the air onto it and freezes causing frost. If your car is parked under a carport the roof of the carport will radiate some heat down onto the surface of your car, preventing water from the air condensing and freezing onto your windshield.

As temperatures plummet, garden rooms, verandas and extensions are often abandoned for the cosy indoors. We think this is a great shame and it doesn’t have to be the case! We can make your sunspace just as comfortable as your living room with our outdoor heaters.

Outdoor Heaters from SunSpaces

Here at SunSpaces we have a range of outdoor heaters, including Model 8 shown above. This model is excellent if you love to host guests in the winter months. It’s remote controlled, has built-in App/Bluetooth capabilities, speakers and LED’s for ambient lighting. Click here to find out more.

We think that these outdoor heaters would make an excellent Christmas gift for someone who isn’t currently utilising their outdoor space throughout the winter. Why not treat someone to this Model 5 heater? It’s remote controlled and has an excellent range of 20mᵌ.

SunSpaces garden rooms are the perfect solution if you’re looking to escape from all the stresses and worries in your life and have somewhere that you can take time out and enjoy your own space. With all the protection from the elements that you need, you’ll be able to appreciate your garden no matter the weather. With the ability to have your garden room created to meet your exact needs and specifications, you should have no worries about creating your dream outdoor living space.

 

As a result of being able to have your garden room designed to match your specific requirements, you have the ability to create a truly unique space that stands out from any other within your home. To help you do this, we list a few things for you to consider below.

 

Horizon Garden Room 

Shape

The shape and feel of your garden room is not all down to the ideas of an architect. A number of influencing factors exist, such as the design of your home and outdoor space, that will determine the shape that your garden room is built in. To create an unusual garden room that is different from regular garden rooms, the shape that it is built in is definitely something worth thinking about, where the most unique spaces tend to stray away from the normal box shape.

Bespoke Design Features

The most unusual garden rooms are created around detailed specifications and your garden. This includes windows and doors, which should be designed to provide the best possible accessibility and vantage. Using special configurations whereby you are able to decide how many windows and where the windows and door in your garden room are located, you can create a space that is truly unique to your outdoor living space.

Varying/Optional Window Sizes

Not every garden room is used for the same purpose, with many created to take advantage of the furniture inside or surrounding views. A way to do this is to create a garden room with varying or optional window sizes. To create a truly unique garden room, you could try to implement a range of varying window sizes or shapes that will really catch the eye of anyone who visits.

Furniture & Fittings

One of the simplest ways in which you can create an outdoor living space that really stands out from others is the furniture and features that you choose to use within it. Here you can either go for an uncommon theme that you can stick to throughout the entire space, or utilise truly unusual centrepieces that will draw the attention of all. Again, the way in which your garden room is built can be manipulated to draw the attention of guests, for example, light fittings, shade systems or the material used on the roof.

 

These are just a number of things that you can utilise and manipulate in order to create an unusual garden room that is like no other. Each can be tailored and customised exactly to your liking, no matter how unique. Here at SunSpaces, we strive to make creating your dream outdoor living space a process that is as easy and stress-free as possible. As a result, we offer a FREE 3D design service whereby if you have an idea of what you want your garden room to look like, our CAD engineers can make your garden room dreams a reality.
