Garden lounges

 
Is your living room letting you down? Do you wish you had a brighter, more beautiful space in which to spend your spare time? In that case, a SunSpaces garden lounge could be the perfect solution for you - our stunning structures are easy to build, they come in a variety of styles and colours, and they generally require no planning permission whatsoever!
 
If you need a bit of outdoor inspiration for your new garden lounge, here are some ideas and suggestions from the SunSpaces website. If you'd like to chat with our team and discuss your project further, feel free to contact us!
 
Garden lounge idea
 
This gorgeous garden lounge has a set of sliding glass walls, and this really helps to break down the barrier that separates indoors from out. On warm days, the doors slide open to let the sunshine in; when the weather is poor, they can be kept shut whilst still giving the room a bright, airy feel. Those armchairs look comfy, too!
 
Garden veranda
 
This veranda has room for both a lounge area and a dining space, both of which are protected from the elements by the stylish glass roof.
 
Detached garden lounge
 
It's worth remembering that our verandas don't have to be attached to your property. Many customers choose a detached veranda instead; if you want a peaceful, comfortable retreat at the far end of your garden, this could well be the choice for you!

Garden room

A garden room makes a fine addition to practically any property. If you're unsure as to whether or not a garden room could benefit your home, well, allow us to tip the scales a little - here are 5 great reasons to add one ASAP!

1. Extend your living space.

By adding a SunSpace to your property, you're effectively adding an extra room to your house. This room can be used pretty much however you please - for example, as a dining room, a lounge, a playroom for the kids, or something else entirely! The sky's the limit!


2. Get more from your garden.

If you live in Britain, your garden is probably a frigid no-go zone from October to March. A garden room will allow you to enjoy your outdoor space even in colder months - SunSpaces are usable practically all year 'round, as this diagram shows:

It's all the pleasure of being in the garden without the unpleasantness of being cold!


3. Save yourself the hassle of a conservatory.

Adding a garden room to your property achieves almost exactly the same effect as adding a conservatory, and yet a garden room is significantly more cost-effective than any conservatory or orangery. It's also easier to install - planning permission is almost never required, and all SunSpaces products are supplied with instructional DVDs that allow you to build your new outdoor retreat without any professional assistance!

(Of course, if you would prefer your garden room to be installed by a professional, we do offer a full installation service throughout the UK.)


4. Create more storage space.

Starting to run out of room in your house? No need for a clear-out - the addition of a SunSpaces garden room will increase your home's storage space significantly! And don't worry about your property going missing, because our sunrooms are exceptionally secure, with lockable doors and toughened glass to prevent break-ins.


5. Increase the value of your home.

If you ever decide to up sticks and move to a new home, you should find that your garden room noticeably increases the value of the property you're trying to sell. After all, what discerning home buyer wouldn't want the extra space and versatility afforded by a SunSpaces structure?

Veranda 8

August has arrived once again! (Time really does fly, doesn't it?) This means that you've only got about a month of summer left to enjoy - if you haven't spent any quality time in the garden yet, now's the time to get moving!

Here are few ways in which you can get more from your garden before autumn rears its dismal head:
  • Plant some flowers. Planting is a very rewarding outdoor activity, and if you want your outdoor space to be pretty and colourful through autumn and winter, now is the time to act. The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea recommends planting lilies and colchiums (also known as autumn crocus and naked lady) in August; additionally, if you want to try your hand at growing vegetables, this time of year is good for planting spinach, carrots, lettuces, and turnips.

  • Make time for dinner. Outdoor dining is a luxury that we aren't often afforded here in the UK, so if you do find yourself free on a rare sunny evening, be sure to take advantage of it!

  • Play with the kids. If you have children, be sure to enjoy some outdoor time spent running around with them before the weather takes a turn for the worse. We know how difficult it can be to pull them away from their screens, but if they miss out on the sunny summer fun, they'll regret it just as much as you!

  • Do nothing. The garden is a great place to relax, and if you can find the time, it's always nice to just lounge in a deck chair (or, better yet, a sun lounger) and do nothing at all. Just sit back, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and chill out - you've earned it!
Of course, if you want to continue enjoying your garden after summer ends, a SunSpace could be a great investment for you. Our garden rooms greatly extend the period during which you can enjoy your garden - more information here!
SunSpaces garden room

The garden is a colourful place, and we think that our garden rooms should be just the same! Here are some fabulous accessories from around the web that we think would look absolutely amazing inside our SunSpaces:

Vintage floor light
Eglo Vintage Mint Tripod Floor Light
(from DuskLights.co.uk)
While we usually tend towards contemporary designs here at SunSpaces, we do love the occasional vintage find. This lovely mint-coloured tripod lamp has a certain old-fashioned beauty, but we think that the colour and the design would look right at home in a modern living space, too! 


Personalised planters
Personalised Planter Crates
Flowers are an obvious means of adding colour to your garden room, but why not go one step further and plant your seeds in a container that's every bit as colourful as the flowers themselves? These beautiful crates are available in a variety of different colours, and you can personalise them with any message you want!


Contemporary Artwork
(piece above from MackenzieThorpe.net)
A great way to make your garden room look brighter, livelier, and even more modern! We are a big fan of Mackenzie Thorpe's work, but don't worry if the painting above isn't to your tastes - there's a whole world of wonderful artwork to choose from, and thousands of different canvases that would look great in our garden rooms!


Pixel Rug
Sticking with the contemporary theme...feast your eyes on this magnificent rug! It's the perfect piece of home decor for gamers, geeks, and 21st century homeowners of all stripes. If added colour is what you're after, you can't go far wrong with this bright little number!


Patterned Floor Cushions
Finally, we come to these beautiful cushions - we think that their floral patterns would suit the outdoorsy feel of a garden room perfectly. Bonus points if you get one with pom-poms around the edge!
