When it comes to glass rooms and awnings, both offer fantastic benefits for homeowners. However, each also comes with its drawbacks. Awnings are hugely adaptable yet they are unable to cope in extreme wind and snowy conditions. Glass rooms, on the other hand, are fixed and offer great protection from the elements but lack a level of natural shading.
For these reasons, it comes as no surprise that so many homeowners are choosing to install both products to their home to gain the maximum possible benefits, creating the ultimate weather-protected space. Usually attached to the roof of the glass room, the awning extends via a set of runners, providing the awning itself a resounding sense of stability. Runners can be placed either above or below the glass, each offering benefits. Adding the awning to the outside of the glass is ideal for stopping the sun (when we’re lucky enough to have some) from heating up the glass and increasing the temperature, whilst adding shading to the inside can prevent wind or heavy rain from becoming an issue.
The benefit this offers is that not only can you protect from rain and wind, you can also protect from the sun during the summer, creating a glass room that can be used all year round, no matter the weather.
Our glass room & awning options
The most popular glass room in our collection is the Panorama glass room. A beautiful, practical and affordable glass sunroom that offers homeowners a gorgeous and simple way to connect their inside space with the outdoors. Available in a variety of designs, the Panorama glass room can be made to suit all needs. Electric shade systems are complete with UV-resistant materials as well as being available in a range of colours for full custom personalisation.
The Compact awning from SunSpaces is a slender garden canopy with a compact construction. It offers homeowners effective shade and shelter from the elements, allowing you to make the most out of your time in your glass room. The best thing about our Compact awning is that when they’re not needed, they can be easily retracted using an electronic remote control, meaning you can enjoy the full views from outside your glass room at any time.
As well as shading options, our range of glass rooms comes with additional customisation features such as sound, heating and lighting. Our awnings can also be further customised through a choice of end caps, pitch adjustment and valences for a truly bespoke home addition.
