Garden rooms have become an incredibly popular way to extend the space of your property. There has always been the need to increase the amount of space we have within our homes, especially since a study from Cambridge University revealed that the UK could run out of land by 2030.
Families are getting more creative in trying to figure out how to maximise a small space. The first two options people usually consider are garden rooms or home extensions, so we're here to help you find out what the difference is, and which one is best for you and your property.
If you have a growing family or a sudden need for a home office, you might be considering expanding your home. House extensions are notoriously very expensive, especially when you factor in the cost of planning permission, labour and waste removal. If you're looking for alternatives to house extensions that won't break the bank, we can help. We're going to show you some cheap home extension ideas that will help you to expand your living space on a budget.
It is often said that your home is your castle, and when it comes to castles, bigger is better! It seems that people are always looking for new ways to make more space in their home, whether it's by redecorating and revamping their current spaces or by creating more through adding an extension.
Extensions are a very traditional for expanding the floorspace of a property, and you might even think that it is the only possible avenue. Whilst extensions might be the most well-known solution, are they the best?
Adding a conservatory to your home is a big investment. It costs a lot of money - tens of thousands of pounds - plus the building work will likely mean weeks of noise and disruption for your household.
Of course, you may feel that the results justify these sacrifices, but before you start planning your new conservatory, you may want to consider a streamlined glass sunroom as a possible alternative.
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!
