Outdoor SunSpaces News

When you invest in a high-quality, long-lasting product from SunSpaces we also recommend choosing robust, luxury outdoor flooring too. This ensures you get maximum enjoyment from your new SunSpace.


As some of you may already know, SunSpaces is a sister company to two exceptional indoor/outdoor flooring suppliers; TimberTech and PrimaPorcelain. Many of our customers choose composite decking from TimberTechUK or Porcelain tiles from PrimaPorcelain to complete their garden project, and we think the finished results are exquisite.



Composite Decking from TimberTech

TimberTech’s composite decking is a great option if you want to add a sturdy and attractive base to your SunSpace garden room or veranda. Some of the main benefits of choosing TimberTech composite decking as a base for your SunSpace are:

  • Low Maintenance – Unlike wooden decking, TimberTech composite decking doesn’t need painting. Staining or sealing to keep it looking beautiful, leaving you with more time to enjoy outdoor living
  • Fade & Heat Resistant – TimberTech decking will keep its rich, vibrant colour and won’t get too hot to walk on during the summer thanks to the highly reflective pigments used to create the boards.
  • Slip Resistant & Safe – Traditional wooden decking can be incredibly slippery - TimberTech’s boards take in minimal moisture (less than 1.2%) so you can be sure your new outdoor space will be safe to use whatever the weather. It also won’t splinter, meaning it’s perfect if you have children who will play on it barefoot in the summer.
  • Warranty – TimberTech’s deck boards come with a 30-year warranty meaning you can be certain that your outdoor flooring will last just as long as your new SunSpace!

Porcelain Paving from PrimaPorcelain

Choosing PrimaPorcelain’s tiles as a base for your SunSpace is also an excellent option. Their versatility makes them perfect for use as outdoor flooring beneath your new awning or veranda, or as indoor flooring in your garden room or glass extension! Some customers use the same range of tiles indoors and outdoors to create an indoor/outdoor transition that cannot be achieved using other materials.


PrimaPorcelain stock an extensive range of colours and textures so you can create an outdoor space that perfectly compliments your new SunSpace. Besides adding an extra luxurious finish to your SunSpace, PrimaPorcelain tiles offer the following benefits:

  • Low Maintenance – PrimaPorcelain tiles have a very low porosity level meaning they absorb less than 0.05% of surface water, this not only makes them incredibly slip resistant but also means they never need sealing.
  • Looks Like Natural Stone – If you want to achieve an authentic, natural look in your new SunSpace, PrimaPorcelain is the answer! Their tiles are indistinguishable from natural stone products.
  • Strength – PrimaPorcelain’s tiles are vitrified, meaning they are baked at a very high temperature that creates an incredibly dense and strong tile – much stronger than other materials.
  • Warranty – PrimaPorcelain’s paving comes with a 10-year warranty meaning you can be certain that your paved area will last just as long as your new SunSpace!

Choosing to invest in a Sunspace that will enhance your everyday way of life and potentially add value to your property is rather exciting. But it can be daunting too. There are many companies offering a variety of choices. From simple covered patios and small conservatories to larger versions and garden rooms there are many on the market. However, SunSpaces offer a unique way to navigate the process of choosing, designing and constructing the right sunspace for you. 


Variety and innovation
There are many options that will allow you to add a sunspace to your home. It could be a small covered area, veranda, awning, or glass extension or garden room. All homes can benefit from any one of these, regardless of size if designed and constructed properly. 

Apart from design and construction, the choice of materials can hugely influence the quality and appeal. SunSpaces use only robust and rustproof aluminium for the construction of frames. Laminated glass or an extremely durable polycarbonate is used for walls and roofs. These materials are not only very durable to stand the test of time and weather but are also timeless in visual appeal. By using these innovative materials SunSpaces can provide solutions to every design need and therefore offer a variety of design and innovative, durable timeless constructions. 


One of the issues related to engaging a company to turn your concept of a Sunspace into reality is the limitations of both the materials they use and their expertise and ability. This means that standard sizes are handled with ease but anything beyond presents a challenge. This limits the design and personal choice of the whole project. SunSpaces are not bound by these limitations. 

At SunSpaces we offer complete flexibility, this means there is maximum potential to realise the sunspace of your dreams. Materials do not present a problem. Those that we choose are supplied in larger, broader sizes than usual but we are not confined by this and can adjust to any need. Large or unusual shaped gardens do not present a problem. 


A complete solution
Sometimes there are simply too many people involved in the design, construction and completion of a sunspace. Apart from often increasing the final costs of a project, it can introduce delays, differences of opinion and perhaps most worryingly confusion. The customer’s original concept may become altered to fit the restrictions and limitations in those involved in executing it. A company that can offer service from initial consultation to design, construction and support throughout without “outsourcing” will deliver a better service. SunSpaces are able to offer this so start your journey here with us. 

Why choose SunSpaces
Whatever you choose to imagine as your ideal sunspace, SunSpaces can provide the quality and design necessary to make it a reality. We can offer free advice as well as free site visiting and surveying and complete in-house service from start to finish.

We offer a FREE 3D design service

Before you purchase your new SunSpace, our 3D design team are on hand to bring your garden dreams to life. You can get an accurate feel for how SunSpaces you like would look if they were actually installed in your garden. This makes deciding which one is right for you much easier. All we need is a brief explanation of how you want your finished project to look and the measurements of your new SunSpace. It's that simple! Find out more about our 3D design service here.

We only use the best materials

Our various garden structures are made using exceptionally high-quality materials, such as rustproof aluminium, toughened glass, and extra-strong polycarbonate. This ensures that our garden rooms are as sturdy and resilient as possible. If you're looking for a durable yet elegant extension to your home, our Wintergardens are a great option - they are made using the highest quality materials and can be double or triple glazed to preserve heat within your home.

We design your SunSpace to suit you

Many of our competitors only sell extensions, verandas and sunrooms of a pre-determined size, but here at SunSpaces, we design your SunSpace to suit your exact requirements. This gives us the ability to help you create a stunning outdoor living area, even if your available space is not a conventional size.


We offer a comprehensive installation service

Once you purchase your SunSpace, you can choose whether or not to take advantage of our competent and experienced installation team. However, if you would prefer to install your new SunSpace independently, or source an independent contractor of your own this is also perfectly fine. We are able to assist as much or as little as you need.

We have three conveniently located showrooms

The problem with online shopping is that you don't get to see what you're buying until after you'd paid for it. If you want to take a closer look at our garden rooms before you commit to a purchase, you are more than welcome to visit one of our showrooms - we have showrooms in CardiffSlough & St. Albans.

With the digital age that we now live in becoming bigger and bigger as time passes, the need for real, human interactions and connections has never been greater and going into the new year, your outdoor living space can play a vital role in making these connections happen. 


The once simple patio with weatherproof furniture and bbq, which has worked for so many people for so many years, just isn't enough anymore. People now want a comfortable space where they are able to relax and connect with family and friends that match and in most cases surpass, the comfort of their indoor spaces. With this in mind, we take a look at some of the predominant outdoor living trends that can be expected to continue gaining popularity in 2019.


Combine with Nature 


(Pictured: Serenity Veranda)


One of the most exciting up-and-coming trends is to combine or 'entangle' hardscape installations with the surrounding nature and landscape, which can be achieved in a number of different ways. For example, installing a detached veranda in an area of your garden surrounded by beautiful greenery or placing plants and flowers inside to create a natural environment within it. 


Contemporary Design


(Pictured: Compact Awning)


2019 will most definitely see many homeowners continue following the trend of transforming their outdoor living spaces to match the clean lines of contemporary design found within their inside spaces. People often associate textures and colours with contemporary design, so we can expect this to continue over the next 12 months. Another aspect of the contemporary trend focuses on monochromatic colour schemes with bright pops of colour.


Transitioning Inside to Outside

One of the biggest outdoor living trends for 2019 is distorting the line between indoors and outdoors. This usually involves a lot more than just patio doors and windows, with a number of our SunSpaces providing the perfect opportunity to achieve just this! A garden room is a perfect solution if you're looking to extend your outside living area and with a number of additional features available such as lighting and heating, you are able to make the transition feel even easier. 


Grey & Greige Tones

From light grey to darker charcoal colours, grey continued to dominate indoor and outdoor colour trends in 2018 and we do not expect this to slow down anytime soon! However, a recent trend has started which sees colours leaning back towards warmer tones, resulting in the rise of 'greige', a fine blend of grey and beige tones. Homeowners are expected to utilise these tones into new hardscapes, taking advantage of its ability to work extremely well with both cool and warm design palettes. 


Our collection of SunSpaces is perfect if you're looking to capitalise on any of these outdoor living trends in 2019! For more information about any of the listed products or our range of SunSpaces, please do not hesitate to contact us today!

A veranda is a structure built to the front, side or rear part of your house designed to provide you with shelter or used as a sun trap.


Types of verandas


It is rare to find verandas that are identical. This is because they tend to be customized to suit the owners’ needs. However, there are 2 main types of verandas;

Traditional or Victorian Veranda - Made from wrought iron, these verandas tend to have a roof containing glass panels and columns with quarter arches at the top.

Contemporary Veranda - Ideal for the more modern property, these sleek verandas have a durable, sleek aluminium structure, with either glass or polycarbonate roof panels.


The purpose of a veranda


Verandas usually often serve a variety of purposes, depending on the reasons and places fitted. The main reasons, however, are to provide an outdoor shelter where you can enjoy your outdoor area regardless of the weather conditions prevailing. Secondly, verandas enhance the look of your home. We can help you decide upon the best design to suit your property to provide a SunSpace that accentuates the look of your home.


The benefits of a veranda


You might be wondering why you should install a veranda to your home. Well, there are a variety of benefits to reap from the installation of a veranda:

  • An additional room - An additional room is always a bonus for any family home. This added space can be used to put your feet up or even as a children's play area. This added space will serve as a great place to dine with the family and spend time with each other, just as your garden is in the summertime. You can also use the additional space for storage, where you can have peace of mind knowing your items are safe from the rain.


  • Entertainment - Hosting social events is often a great challenge. The addition of the veranda provides all essential outdoor space under cover for those inclement British days. Ideal as a shelter from those scorching days (we hope!) or as protection for those breezy days, the veranda space can be used for dining requirements, for lounging requirements, or a place for the kids to play.


  • Aesthetics - Ever noticed the difference between homes with verandas and those without? A house with a veranda looks complete and pleasing to look at. A veranda adds charm and a feeling of completeness to a house. Though verandas come in different styles, the end result is the same… the aesthetics are enhanced!


  • Value - In terms of real estate, an exterior addition to a property most often makes the difference in prices. A veranda can boost the value of a house by up to £15,493.80. It not only improves the aesthetics of a house but it can also double up as an additional room.


  • Space - Living with family is a wonderful experience, you get to watch your kids play around and also as they grow older. But sometimes you need a getaway place to reflect and do your work. A veranda provides the getaway space that you need! The additional space is ideal for enjoying a quiet time without the pressures of other family members. A veranda can also serve as an additional storage space for items like bicycles and toys.
