Dorothy wasn’t lying when she said “there’s no place like home” – that’s why we provide awning house attachments to help you extend home that little bit further. Our vast range of Awnings come in a variety of styles to meet your wants and needs. Attaching an awning to your house will give you all the benefits of an outdoor experience, but with the added comforts of home! Read on to find 3 huge benefits of fitting an awning house attachment to your home: 

The House and Beyond

One obvious benefit of house-suited awnings is the extra space they provide. Whether you like to host parties or simply want a comfortable, communal spot to spend quality time with the family, adding an awning attachment to your house will increase the livable space available to you. For those of you who like to enjoy the garden after dark, check out our Lite Awnings – they are fitted with LED lights meaning the party doesn’t stop till you do.

 

 

Whatever the Weather

In Britain we’re used to unpredictable weather; one minute the sun is out, the next rain is pouring. Luckily, retractable awnings give you the power to stay comfortable regardless of the weather. Adding a Retractable Awning to the back of your house means you can remain outside if the heat gets too much, or if the rain starts to fall. Either way, adding an awning to your home definitely means more fresh air for you!

 

 

Stylish and Practical

Fashionistas might tell you there’s no such thing as stylish and sensible – luckily, this isn’t the case when it comes to awnings. Adding an awning to your house not only transforms the space between your home and garden, it also offers a lot of protection. From decking & garden furniture to windows & conservatories awnings add an extra layer of protection that will maintain the quality of your home for longer – all with no extra work.

 

 

Whatever your need, finding an awning to attach to your house is easy when SunSpace offers so many styles to enhance your house and garden! For a free information pack just visit this page!

Outdoor living structures extend the use of your garden and extend the period in which you can use it. If you have a garden that needs that extra wow-factor, an outdoor living structure would be perfect for you. Not only will an outdoor space entice you to go outside more, it will also give you that extra space to relax, unwind and appreciate the outdoor surroundings, whether rain or sun.


There are a range of outdoor living structures on the market and each type of structure has different values, so depending on your style, requirements and property type, there are specific structures we would recommend. Each of the structures we recommend can be externally styled to your choice, however, when it comes to internal décor, we think a table and chairs and maybe a relaxation area works best!

Awnings 

If you currently have a patio or garden area that you would like sheltering, Awnings are the perfect outdoor structure for you, suitable for rain or sun. These are great if you don’t have much space in the garden as they can be retracted when you don’t need them. Awnings are better suited to properties that get a lot of sun as they are good for protecting you from the summer heat-rays without adding that extra space that you may not desire or have. 

 

Compact Awnings 

Compact Awnings are suitable for canopying sun in the summer months! This structure would be best suited to someone who has a smaller-scaled patio/garden area they would like covered, and would be great for domestic customers.

Lite Awnings 

Lite Awnings, however, are a larger outdoor living structure, suited to large verandas or patios. This outdoor structure comes integrated with LED lights so you really do get that wow-factor about your property. We recommend Lite Awnings to those who love being outdoors, especially in the evenings when you can really admire the aesthetic of this outdoor living structure. With their LED lights, this style is great for get-togethers, small parties, evening meals or even, reading and relaxing after a busy day.

Elite Awnings

Who knew there could be so many Awning types?  Elite Awnings are the perfect outdoor living structure if covering a very large parameter, perhaps a hotel/B&B or even someone with a very large home (jealous!!). What’s great about these Awning’s is that they use innovative technology that allows them to be opened and closed with a simple remote!

Verandas

Verandas are a fantastic outdoor living structure if you are after that Awning style but a little more protection against the elements. Verandas can be fit to almost any space and allow you to admire your garden even when it’s raining; is there any better feeling that listening to the rain? Well, you can listen to the rain from the outdoors and stay dry… perfect!  

 

Glass Verandas 

SunSpaces have an array of Veranda types to suit your preference, home, and design. Aspire Verandas add sophistication to your property, without taking up lots of space. The Glass roof of Aspire Verandas mean you can be protected from even the nastiest of weather’s. Glass Verandas can also be detached, meaning you don’t have to have it directly next to your property. If you’d like a detached outdoor living space in another part of your garden, somewhere to relax other than in your home, then Glass Verandas are for you.

The British climate can be challenging. Take the last two weeks as a prime example – Easter half-term has come and gone and the weather has not exactly been warm and welcoming!  Even when it's not windy, it may be showery. When it's not sunny, it may be windy. And when the temperature drops just that little more, basking in the sunlight is but a desire.   The solution to this is to add a glass room or veranda to your home.


The solution: A Glass Room


Glass rooms are exactly that, an additional room made of glass. Protected from the rain, wind and marginal temperatures, you can relax and be in your garden for many more months each year.

The rooms are designed to your exact needs, and many people choose to have the ability to open up the glass walls on all sides. This allows you to shield yourself from the predominant wind direction while the sun is making you nice and warm. Or perhaps the sun is doing too good a job! Open the windward side and have a nice cool breeze to keep you just at the right temperature.

 



Verandas and glass rooms extend your living space by making the garden part of your home. The immediate transition of inside-to-outside now has a zone. You can either  sit inside your SunSpace and be protected from the elements, or you  can open up the sides and enjoy the sweet fragrances from the flowers and enjoy listening the sounds of nature coming from your garden space.


Another reason to sit back and relax is that these glass rooms add genuine resale value to your home. These high-quality extensions are very low maintenance. You will spend more time relaxing!

 

 

A Mediterranean  Lifestyle


Grab a book, a drink, and sink back into a comfy couch. Enjoy the sound of the rain tapping on the glass. Get sleepy as the sun warms you. Your glass room turns another spring or autumn day into a day in your garden.

Some people bring the garden into their glass room. Container vegetable gardening, ferns, or flowers, there are many ways to make the space even more pleasant. The transition from your home into your garden will be even more successful.

Because these rooms are designed specifically for your home, they can take advantage of any kind of space. Space you might have considered unusable because of its shape, size, or location becomes your favourite spot to sit back and let the worries of the day fade away.

 

 

Bring Luxury to your Home Today


Arrange for someone from SunSpaces to come and see you and discuss your requirements.   From a modern veranda through to a fully insulated glass room with automated lighting, shade, and climate control – we can cater for all your needs.

So, next time you feel trapped in your own home because of inclement weather, think about how nice it would be to have a glass room of your own.
