The market for extended living is changing and while the conservatory still remains a popular affordable glazed extension, consumers are turning their attentions to the inspirational garden room.
Many homeowners are increasingly frustrated with the high costs and often the inconvenient process of building a home extension. The introduction of garden rooms to the home improvement sector is seen as a welcome development.
The garden room offers the light and openness of glazed windows and doors, the luxury, energy efficiency and traditional appearance of a tiled roof. The installation cycle is much shorter than the weeks or even months of a typical home extension, minimising disruptions to home life.
During the last decade the conservatory captured the imagination of the public and was identified as the number one on the home improvement wish list by consumers. Many earlier conservatories were installed with 16mm polycarbonate roof glazing in clear, opal or bronze, today many of these conservatories are starting to look tired or are even failing in some cases.
As consumers experience more of these failing first generation conservatories, there attractiveness may be diminished, yet they remain a very cost effective means to add valuable living space to the home. Newer second generation conservatories offer better energy efficiency, thanks in no small part to the development of specialist climate control glass, which help retain heat in the winter months but also reflect heat build up in the summer.
The garden room looks more in keeping with the existing fabric of a house from both an externally tiled appearance to the typical internal plaster finish. Typical conservatory bases, windows and doors can be harnessed in the design on to which a pre-fabricated tiled roof is installed in a wide variety of designs.
A Garden Room can create very a comfortable, usable environment due to its superior insulation and sound absorbing qualities.The room will be more cost effective to heat in the winter than a traditional conservatory. In the summer Garden Rooms reduce the heat build-up associated with polycarbonate and glass roofs. The Garden Room has more of an extension feel about it, without the high costs and disruption involved in constructing an extension.
