Outdoor SunSpaces News

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at SunSpaces HQ and festive cheer has well and truly taken over.

 

If you too are feeling overcome with Christmas spirit, don’t leave your garden room out in the cold this winter.

 

Bring the warmth of the festive period to your SunSpace this December with a Christmas room fit for a king (or three)!

Turn Your Sunspace into a Winter Wonderland

If you’re looking to ramp up your decoration game this year, here are three great ways to transform your garden room into Santa’s grotto.

 

 

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

First thing’s first, what festive stronghold would be complete without a Christmas tree to call its own?

 

Whether it’s a full-sized behemoth that towers over all that enter or a pint-sized miniature that humbly sits in the background, a festive fir is a must.

 

If you already have a traditional tree in your living room or elsewhere in the house, why not try something more adventurous?

 

Experiment with colours and styles to give your festive garden room a unique ambience that’s completely different to the rest of your home.

 

 

Box Office Christmas Party

If there’s one Christmas activity that never fails to entertain and unite the whole family, it’s a festive film. As such, a good TV is one appliance that’s a must for your Christmas SunSpace.

 

If possible, opt for a decent size to allow all ages to enjoy from all angles. After all, grandma’s eyesight might not be what it used to be and will probably be even worse after a few festive sherries, so a big screen could come in handy!

 

Similarly, if your TV of choice isn’t a smart TV, you’ll also need to find a means of connecting your TV to a streaming service or hook it up to a DVD player in order to source your Christmas classics.

 

This is a problem you don’t want to encounter on Christmas day, so remember to bear this step in mind before thinking your work here is done.

 

Finally, accessorise your makeshift cinema with enough comfy seating to account for the family (beanbags are a fantastically affordable solution for the youngsters) and you have yourself a merry little Christmas theatre.

 

 

Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire

If you really want to bring that homely festive warmth to your SunSpace, there’s nothing quite like a wintry fireplace to complete the Christmas scene.

 

While it is possible to add a genuine woodburner to a variety of garden room designs, installation of such a feature can be costly, not to mention a big decision.

 

Instead, for the purpose of Christmastime convenience, opting for a faux fireplace can be the ultimate life hack.

 

Fantastically festive, stunningly simple and merrily mesmeric, the addition of flickering flames to your cosy Christmas cave is the icing on the cake.

 

 

Using Your Christmas Room

So, your Christmas garden room is now tinsel-tastic and decked to the halls – now what?

 

Why not make your new Christmas room centrepiece for your festive festivities? If you’re hosting Christmas dinner, a SunSpaces garden room makes for the perfect location to serve up your beautiful banquet and wow the in-laws.

 

If not, why not use your SunSpace as a room to retire to once your festive feast is over, the plates have been cleared and the last morsel of Christmas pudding has been polished? Your Christmas cavern is the ideal place to sit back, relax and gently slip into a quiet food coma.

 

But what about the evening? Well, the Christmas SunSpace has you covered there too. Is there a better way to see out Christmas night than with some fun, games and few glasses (or bottles) or mulled wine in your own homely grotto?

 

 

What are you waiting for? Don’t be a Scrooge this yuletide. “’Tis the season to be jolly” (fa, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la), so why not bring the joy to your SunSpace this Christmastime with a festive facelift?

With Halloween now firmly in the rear-view mirror for another year, the public’s attention now turns to the next big event in the national calendar - which is, of course, Bonfire Night.

 

A beloved evening of outdoor entertainment, the skyline spectacle of November 5th is a feast for the eyes that never fails to impress Brits young and old alike - 4th July, eat your heart out!

 

However, that being said, while dark, autumn evenings may lend themselves well to the airborne illuminations, the bitterly cold weather that accompanies it isn’t quite as family-friendly.

 

If you’re lucky enough to have a SunSpace, there’s no better night to prove that our awesome verandas and garden rooms are so much more than just sanctuary from the summertime sun.

The Perfect Viewing Party Venue

For many of us, November 5th means staring out the window in awe at the colourful sights and vibrant visuals adorning the autumn air.

 

With a SunSpaces veranda or garden room, you can take that experience to the next level and essentially have your own fireworks viewing party, all from the sheltered comfort of your own backyard.

 

In fact, if you could create a purpose-built enclosure for star-gazing and watching the night sky, it would probably look a lot like a SunSpaces veranda or garden room. Warm, sheltered and unobstructed, either one would make for the perfect venue to watch the fireworks unfold.

 

Featuring a transparent roof and glass side panels, you can watch the soaring rockets radiate the November skies without having to endure the bitterness of the open air and autumn winds. Best of all, it’s quite literally on your doorstep!

 

 

Using Your SunSpace in Autumn

If you’re planning on some outdoor fun this bonfire night, the brisk autumn air can be a bit of a turn-off, particularly if it’s damp and wet as well. Meanwhile, if you happen to have young children accompanying you, adverse weather and climate can make life even more difficult.

 

The sheltered confines of a SunSpace veranda means you don’t need to brave the elements, providing a safe environment for you and the whole family to enjoy the displays and indulge in November 5th activities.

 

Meanwhile, if you plan on making a bit of an event of the evening, a SunSpaces veranda can make for the perfect venue to bust out the barbeque one last time before winter takes over and puts your BBQ plans on ice.

 

Why not make your bonfire night one to remember and host a viewing party at your home? Invite the family round, stock up on supplies and turn your Guy Fawkes Nights into a family fun night without even leaving your property!

 

 

Preparing for Next Year

If you don’t own a SunSpace and have missed out on enjoying this year’s phosphorus festivities from your own shielded elemental escape, why not plan ahead and explore the world of SunSpaces today?

 

Start your new year off with a bang by investing in a SunSpaces veranda or garden room ahead of the summer to really make the most of your investment. That way, you can reap the rewards of the summer sun and prepare your property for next year in one fell swoop!

If you are the proud owner of a SunSpaces veranda, chances are you’ll want to keep it looking clean and tidy.

 

After all, who wants to invest in a beautiful state-of-the-art veranda, only to see it become an eyesore due to lack of care and maintenance?

 

Well, fear not, verandarers of the UK – help is at hand and it comes in the form of elbow grease and a soapy sponge.

Cleaning Your Veranda: Things to Avoid

As a general rule of thumb, in order to avoid damaging your stunning SunSpace in pursuit of pristine sheen, the “softly, softly” approach is the best course of action. Remember, while all SunSpaces verandas are made of the highest quality materials, they aren’t indestructible.

 

Corrosive chemicals and heavy-duty cleaning agents could prove damaging to your pride and joy, so avoid using acidic cleaning products.

 

Meanwhile, refrain from using harsh cleaning tools like scouring pads, abrasive implements and sharp objects, as these could leave notable scratches.

 

Similarly, it’s also worth avoiding using a pressure washer as well, as the powerful jets could also cause damage, particularly to seals and moving parts.

 

Top Tips for a Clean Veranda

So, by now you should be well-equipped with the knowledge and know-how of what NOT to do. It’s only fitting we let you in on the other half of the equation and tell you exactly what you SHOULD do.

 

Here are a few handy hints and tips to keep your veranda looking great!

 

Cleaning Glass Panels

Whether you have opted for a glass or polycarbonate roof for your veranda, keeping it clean can make a monumental difference to the appearance of your outdoor living space, not to mention your enjoyment of it.

 

To keep your panels clean as a proverbial whistle, mix a small amount of pH-neutral cleaning product with plenty of water and apply with a soft cloth. This will help prevent any gritty dirt from scratching the glass while you clean.

 

If you have opted for the optional glass side panels, repeat the same process as above, taking care not to scratch the surface.

 

Cleaning Aluminium Parts

Keeping the aluminium frames clean can also make a big difference with regards to the overall appearance of the veranda, particularly if you have opted for a white frame.

 

Again, taking the gentle route to cleanliness, mix a small amount of pH-neutral detergent with plenty of clean water and apply using a soft sponge.

 

If possible, aim to give your aluminium frame a once over at least once a year to keep it looking as good as new.

 

Cleaning the Fabric

If you have accessorised your veranda to include a sunshade, you may want to give these areas a bit of occasional TLC to remove excess dirt and dust.

 

Gently remove the loose dirt and dust build-up by simply going over the problem areas with a soft brush or using a vacuum cleaner on a low setting.

 

This technique is also a good way to get rid of any unsightly cobwebs that may have built up in hard-to-reach areas, so try to tackle this issue at the same time.

 

For a more thorough clean of stubborn dirt and stains, mix a mild detergent with lukewarm water and gently apply with a sponge before lightly rinsing clean.

 

So, there you have it: one fool-proof guide to restoring your veranda to its former glory. For more top tips for a clean veranda, why not drop us a line today? Call now on 01727 845 788 or get in touch online by clicking the button below.

While we may call ourselves SunSpaces, the beauty of our products is that they can be enjoyed whatever the weather, all year round.
 

Why should you limit your outdoor enjoyment to when the sun allows? Moreover, who says the temperature has to call time on your garden fun and games?

 

We believe that your property should be yours to enjoy unrestricted and without elemental limitation, regardless of what the calendar reads.

 

In fact, our SunSpaces garden rooms are tailor-made to enjoyed even during the autumn and wintertime.

Embrace the Change

British weather typically takes a notable turn from late-September onwards, with a frosty bite entering the air as the days get shorter and the nights get longer.

 

As a result, many Brits will retreat from their gardens, abandon their barbeques and leave their outdoor furniture untouched for the foreseeable.

 

With a SunSpaces garden room, such a definitive withdrawal is no longer necessary. In fact, it provides the perfect venue to enjoy the seasonal change in absolute comfort!

 

Protected from the frosty temperatures and adverse weather that autumn/winter brings, a garden room from SunSpaces provides a sheltered sanctuary to enjoy the outdoors in style.

 

 

Elemental Health

If you’re concerned about staying warm in your sunroom, then worry no more. The walled design of our garden rooms provides ample protection against the wind, rain and cold.

 

Even if Britain is hit by a rare bout of snow, your outdoor enjoyment will remain unhindered in the comfort of your fully-enclosed outdoor oasis. Simply watch the postcard scenery in the warmth of the inside.

 

Meanwhile, if the seasons do throw you toasty curveball in the form of a hot, sunny day, you can always fling open the doors and let the fresh air in with ease. All-weather enjoyment really does mean just that with SunSpaces.

 

 

Feel the Heat

While our SunSpaces are excellent insulators in their own right, should you want additional heat for your garden room, we have you covered there too.

 

At SunSpaces, we offer a variety of heating options to choose from and all of our garden rooms and verandas are compatible with our 2KW heaters.

 

We even have a heater/speaker combo, should you wish to add a festive soundtrack to your winter refuge over Christmastime or simply relax and unwind in warming comfort to your favourite tunes.

 

In addition to our range of heating accessories, we also offer optional draught seals for further protection against the autumn breeze and winter cold.

 

Fitting one of these will turn your garden room into a veritable Fort Knox of cosiness, locking the cold outside and keeping your homely hideaway as snug as can be.
