Outdoor SunSpaces News

An afternoon on the patio is a great way to relax and unwind, but it's not such a pleasant proposition during spells of wet weather. It's hard to enjoy a glass of wine and a good book when you're getting rained on!

 

But there is an alternative to dashing indoors when the weather takes a turn for the worse.

Nobody likes having their routine interrupted. We've met a lot of people who wanted to add a picturesque sunroom to their properties, but refrained because they thought the building work would mean weeks of noise and disruption.

 

The good news is that adding a SunSpace to your home is a far quicker job than building a traditional sunroom or conservatory. Our expert installation and fitting team are organised and efficient, and they're able to complete most jobs in a couple of days.

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.

If you’ve ever dreamed of having your own bar, the tail-end of that dream has probably been met with internal acceptance that it’s a hopeless fantasy, an unreachable goal and an impossible vision destined never to be realised.

 

Not so fast, my friend. Here at SunSpaces, we believe in making dreams a reality – specifically those involving home renovation and upscaling.

 

Jimmy McElroy said it best in Blades of Glory – if you can dream it, you can do it – so don’t put your dreams on ice. With the help of SunSpaces, an outdoor garden bar no longer needs to be a pipe dream.

DIY Garden Bar

While it is possible to go the whole hog and create your own DIY garden bar from scratch, it naturally comes with a lot of work attached. Sadly, this often requires a lot of time and a lot of skill to boot which, in today’s fast-paced world, rarely come in pairs.

 

From measuring up and sourcing materials to laying the foundation and the overall construction itself, creating an outdoor garden bar is no small feat. In fact, the project can quickly turn into a bit of a mammoth task – particularly if you want to get it done properly.

 

If you want to create the ultimate backyard bar, a glorified shed probably won’t impress your mates and a second-rate job just isn’t going to cut the mustard. Luckily, at SunSpaces, our mustard cutting skills are world class!

SunSpaces Outdoor Bar

Our collection covers a wide range of outdoor living products, including everything from canopies to extensions and everything in between.

 

As such, we’ve seen it all when it comes to outdoor designs and there’s no hard and fast rule of how you have to use your SunSpace. In fact, it’s your space – how you utilise it is up to you!

 

Over the years, we’ve helped hundreds of customers achieve their dream outdoor living space. Many of these were purpose-built for a key purpose or function, be it a garden art studio or even a meditation garden room.

 

Bottom line: if you want to turn your SunSpace into a watering hole, we can make it so. To help get your cogs turning, here are two fantastic ways to create an outdoor garden bar within the comfort of your outdoor space.

 

Verandas for Cervezas in the Sun

Ideal for summertime socials, adding a veranda to your outdoor space can make for the perfect setting for an outdoor garden bar.

 

Any one of our stunning verandas can be easily transformed into a DIY garden bar, simply by the addition of an L-shaped stand and a few all-weather bar stools. Throw in a few ice buckets and you have yourself the perfect patio pop-up bar.

 

If a permanent bar isn’t quite going to pass your partner’s approval test, you could reach a steady compromise by opting for a fold-away Murphy Bar. That way, you economise on space and cost, while still providing you with a perfectly usable drop-down bar when needed.

 

What’s more, the open plan nature of the veranda also allows for ample airflow, should you want to really make the most of those summer days and spark up the barbeque. After all, any self-respecting garden bar should offer pub food, right?

 

Our veranda options also allow you to truly embrace the summertime weather by accessorising. Whether you wanted to incorporate a garden pool set in the surrounding area or add sun-loungers to soak up the sun.

 

Throw in a sound system and the resulting atmosphere can leave you feeling like you’re propping up a poolside bar in a foreign country, particularly when you get the weather to match.

 

Garden Rooms for Grey Sky Sanctuary

If you’re looking for a more permanent outdoor establishment for year-round enjoyment, there’s really no substitute for the weather-proof enclosed SunSpaces garden room.

 

Built essentially as an extension on to the house itself, the garden room option provides a number of additional bar-friendly benefits, most notably insulated comfort. That being said, perhaps the most complete solution to the outdoor bar conundrum is to opt for the always awesome free-standing variation.

 

A unique alternative to a traditional garden room, the independent option provides you with everything you could want from an outdoor garden bar. Offering the privacy of a detached structure with all the functionality of a fully-enclosed room, a free-standing garden room offers all-season use in a purpose-built standalone structure.

 

Separated from the house for additional peace for all parties, creating distance also helps enhance the pub-like ambience of your outdoor bar. By establishing separation between the home and the outdoor garden bar, you are effectively creating the illusion of going out, despite not leaving your premises.

 

SunSpaces also has a variety of heating options available to keep your personal outdoor bar warm and welcoming, whatever the weather. This even includes a Bluetooth speaker/heater combo, allowing you to truly bring the bar ambience to life in heated comfort.
