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?

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.

A veranda might not be the first type of home extension you’ll consider purchasing if you want to make use of your outdoor living space during the winter months, but that shouldn’t be the case. All of our verandas, including our Outlook and Outlook+, can be enjoyed during winter.

 

The Outlook Veranda Structure:

Outlook verandas are made with a very robust polycarbonate roof that can withstand up to 50cm of snow and comes in three beautiful finishes. There are also three guttering options to choose from, all of which are sure to stop water from pooling on top of your veranda. Structurally, your Outlook Veranda will withstand anything that British weather throws at it.

 

Using your Outlook Veranda during the winter months:

Garden Furniture

Arranging all of your garden furniture so that it's underneath your Outlook Veranda will not only prevent it from getting damaged by the elements, but it will also allow you to make use of your outdoor living area for much longer, if not all year round.

Accessories

Sunspaces stock a range of accessories that will help you enjoy your Outlook Veranda through the winter months, including:

  • Lighting – which can be remotely controlled, and will allow you to enjoy your outdoor space long into the dark winter nights.
  • Heating ­– SunSpaces stock a range of different outdoor heaters, including a heater with integrated speakers that can be controlled via a remote control or an app on your phone! Perfect for hosting a party during the winter months.

By installing an Outlook Veranda, you lose none of your garden views and can really make the most of your outdoor space. They are one of the most simple and effective ways to enhance open air living whatever the weather.

Although carports appear to leave your car open to the elements, evidence suggests that parking your car under a carport can prevent your vehicle from frosting over, even in minus temperatures. Carports also protect your car from heavy snowfall that can damage the finish of your vehicle over time.

 

By investing in a carport, you can shed valuable time off your winter morning routine because you won’t have to rush out of bed early to defrost the car!

 

The Science Behind the Carport?

 

When you go outside on a cold night, you’ll notice that you lose heat from your body very quickly. The same thing is happening to your car that’s parked outside.

When your car gets below a certain temperature, water condenses out of the air onto it and freezes causing frost. If your car is parked under a carport the roof of the carport will radiate some heat down onto the surface of your car, preventing water from the air condensing and freezing onto your windshield.

 

Carports at SunSpaces

 

At SunSpaces we offer two types of carports; Pitched Roof Carports, and Free-Standing Arched Carports.

 

 

Pitched Roof Carports

 

Our Pitched Roof Carports are installed as an extension to your existing property. They are available in four colours and a range of sizes to suit your needs. Find out more about Pitched Roof Carports here.

 

 

Free-Standing Arched Carports

 

Our Free-Standing Arched Carports are a great option if you can’t attach a carport to your property, or if you have space for a detached carport. They are also available in four colours and various sizes as required. Find out more about our Free-Standing Arched Carports here.

 

Whether you choose a Pitched Roof Carport or a Free-Standing Arched Carport, know that you are making a practical and stylish investment for the years to come.
