Adding an extension to your home is a very rewarding endeavour, but it can also be extremely challenging. Extensions often require planning permission and extensive (no pun intended!) building work, all of which will add to the already sizeable cost of the materials themselves.
Fortunately, there is another way. We feel that SunSpaces garden structures
are the perfect alternative to standard home extensions; if you're looking for an easy, affordable
way to expand your living space, our stylish, modern extensions
may well be a perfect choice.
SunSpaces almost never require planning permission
In the vast majority of circumstances, our garden rooms can be installed without obtaining permission or consulting the local planning office beforehand. The only exceptions are listed buildings, conservation areas, and garden rooms that would encroach on property borders once built; if one of these applies to you, we recommend contacting the relevant planning authority before proceeding with the project.
You can build our garden rooms yourself - no professional help is necessary!
We specialise in DIY extensions, and even if you've no relevant experience whatsoever, you should find that constructing your garden room or veranda is a walk in the park. Each of our structures is supplied with a clear assembly guide and an instructional DVD to ensure that you know exactly what you're doing from start to finish. And if you'd rather leave the work to a professional, don't worry - we also offer a full, professional installation service!
Our glass extensions are very cost-effective
Not only will you save money on planning permission and professional contractors, but you should also find that your garden room itself costs noticeably less than if you'd bought the materials required for a full home extension. However, in spite of the reduced cost, your modern glass extension will still look fabulously stylish from the outside and feel wonderfully comfortable on the inside!
If you'd like to know more about SunSpaces, the products we offer, and the reasons why they're such a great alternative to normal home extensions, please get in touch today. You can also request a FREE design for your glass extension.
Are you thinking of having an extension added to your home? The Solarlux Wintergarden from SunSpaces performs just as well as a brick-and-mortar extension, and it’s far more aesthetically pleasing. Glass panels allow light to flood into your home, while also giving you an exceptional view of your garden.
The Functionality of a Solarlux Wintergarden
A Solarlux Wintergarden extension will fit so seamlessly into your home that it can be used for functions that you might otherwise reserve for a proper ‘indoor’ space.

Our lighting options (all available with dimmable transformers) will create a romantic atmosphere, while our skylights are perfect for stargazing.
What you need to know:
- Fully insulated and thermally efficient

Our glass garden rooms are created to offer our customers the ultimate combination of style and functionality, allowing them to easily a merge their indoor space with their garden, to create a comforting and relaxing area. Glass also has many advantages over other types of garden rooms and extensions, which make it the best choice for your home, here are just a few of them:
An Abundance of Light
Our glass garden rooms allow you to enjoy the full beauty of your outdoor surroundings, by minimising the boundaries between your home and garden. The large glass panels let in light and allow you to enjoy both the comfort of being indoors, as well as the sense of well-being and tranquillity that comes from spending time outside. It will also prevent your new garden room from feeling cramped and crowded, by creating an enhanced sense of space and unity.
A Harmonious Transition
Another benefit of purchasing a glass garden room, aside from the space and light, is the ease with which you will be able to match the new addition to your existing home. Other garden rooms or extensions run the risk of looking mismatched or at odds with your existing architecture, and can even distract from its original aesthetic. Our glass garden rooms seek to enhance your home, working with its current shape and form to create a fresh look, which makes the most of the original design rather than obscuring it.
A Space for Shelter
Glass verandas are ideal for those who like to entertain at home, as well as families who want to use their outdoor space to it's full potential. Without making your garden feel clustered or closed-in, glass verandas can provide you with a comfortable shelter in the changeable British weather, giving you a space to relax in and retreat to. Glass side panels also provide a barrier from the cool breeze, making them an ideal haven when your garden party starts to wind down in the evening.

are an extremely popular choice for the garden right now. Thousands of Britons spent their summers under stylish glass verandas, and they've continued to sell well into the autumn months, perhaps because they allow homeowners to spend time outdoors even when the weather is rotten.
DIY glass verandas are available from countless UK suppliers, but we at SunSpaces
firmly believe that our service is head and shoulders above everybody else's. For one thing, we're capable of designing
a completely bespoke garden structure for your property, and we'll happily install

But our service isn't the only thing that sets SunSpaces apart from the rest of the market. The quality of our materials is also second to none: your glass veranda will be roofed with 8mm toughened glass or, alternatively, sturdy polycarbonate sheets that come with a 10 year warranty as standard.

If you're thinking of adding one of our garden rooms to your property, you'll probably want to see a few pictures before you make your mind up. Here are some choice snaps from the SunSpaces photo gallery:
Here's an elegant image with which to get the ball rolling - the sliding glass walls
give this room a seamless and modern look that's very appealing indeed.
Of course, you don't have to have sliding walls if you don't want to - this fixed panel
garden room looks exceptionally stylish in its own right, giving its owner a comfortable, attractive place in which to sit and survey the garden proper.
If you so desire, your garden room doesn't even have to be attached to your house. Our detached garden rooms
make spectacularly modern standalone features, and you may find that, by distancing your SunSpace from the property itself, you create for yourself a peaceful retreat where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of domestic life.
