What would your home look like with the addition of a garden room or veranda? Some of our customers find it difficult to visualise the answer to that question, and this can understandably make them feel slightly hesitant - extending your home is a pretty major project, after all, and it's sometimes difficult to imagine how the end result will look!
Fortunately, thanks to our 3D Design Lab
, you don't have to imagine - we can show you!
Here at SunSpaces, we employ a team of expert designers who can help you to plan your perfect garden structure. This service can include a free 3D design like the one pictured above - this is a great way to get a better idea of how your finished SunSpace will look, and it's ideal for showing off to friends and family in advance of the real McCoy!
As shown above, your 3D design can even include additional features like furniture
and flooring materials
. Both of the examples above incorporate eight-seater dining tables and composite deck boards, but whatever you're thinking of putting in your garden room, we can include it in your visualisation.

Spring is here, which means that it's time to shake up your garden room decoration and get it ready for the bright mornings and warmer nights! To give you a few ideas, here are 5 more lovely home pieces to decorate your garden room:
There is no better way to hail the arrival of warmer weather, than by adding a beautiful selection of fresh flowers to your home. If you're looking for an alternative to the traditional vase, why not invest in something more unusual, like this beautiful multi-hole flute? With individual openings for you to add each flower individually, this glass vase allows you to create a beautiful layout with your chosen flowers, with almost no effort at all!
These pineapple bookends mix traditional and modern design together for a sunning end result, giving you a practical addition to your home with a nod to tropical summer prints. They also add a very on-trend vibe to your garden room, by making use of the popular metallic trend that's sweeping through all aspects of home design at the moment.
We love the retro colours used to create this beautiful stool, and think it would make the perfect addition to any garden room. The owl design is also great for adding another element of nature to your space, and would be lovely if you were using your garden room as a play space for your children.
Candles aren't just for winter! Give them a bright springtime twist with these colourful holders, each with their own unique colour scheme. The zig-zag pattern subtly incorporates elements of the geometric trend, while the blue colour scheme hints at waves for a sweet nod to summer seaside trips.
If you're thinking of hosting an Easter tea party in your garden room, or if you're simply looking for some pretty tableware, these stunning teacup sets would be the perfect addition to your dining set! With pretty gold details, these cups come in a choice of three colours, two of which are classic pastel shades.

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.
