Common Uses For Glass Extensions

Whether you want to create some extra space in your family home or make an architectural fashion statement, glass extensions are a great way of adding lasting value to your property. How many times have you wished that you could have just a bit more room? Or that your kitchen was a little bit bigger? Or that you had somewhere to sit and enjoy your garden whatever the weather? Well now you can do all of these things and more, without having to resort to moving house!

We have different photo gallery examples of how our customers have utilised glass extensions in their homes with uses including kitchens and dining rooms to living rooms and even sunrooms or orangeries.

Why use glass?

If you’re thinking of extending your kitchen, using glass rather than the traditional brick extensions not only looks a lot better, but will allow lots of natural light into the room. This will make your room look wonderful, and it’s also good for your health! Natural light makes us feel happier and is great for your overall wellbeing. It’s not only kitchens that can be improved either, dining rooms, playrooms and even living rooms (so long as you aren’t overlooked by neighbours!) can all be benefitted by a contemporary glass room extension. Many companies offer triple glazed glass panels which mean that your extension will stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer so you don’t have to worry about being too hot or too cold, your extension will be the perfect temperature all year round!

More light without unsightly plastic or frames

As well as extending an existing room, you can create a whole new one as a glass conservatory is a wonderful addition to any home. Much more aesthetically pleasing than the old PVC conservatories, a glass one will bring your home right up to date and also give you a real fusion between your house and your garden. The glass panels can be fixed together using a special type of glue, so there are no unsightly frames spoiling the wonderful views of your garden. You can also opt for large sliding doors, which provide an easy and stylish way of bringing your garden into the home and are really convenient for those summer barbeques and garden parties, as guests can be seated inside but still remain a part of the fun.

Adding value

Extensions are one of the best ways to add value to your property, so not only will you be gaining a space for your enjoyment now, but also making a long term investment. Should you decide to sell your home in the future a contemporary glass extension will certainly be a unique selling point for the property and make it really stand out from the crowd! Whether you add a conservatory or a reception room or enlarge an existing room an extension will be a great attraction for potential buyers.

Environmental considerations

Eco-friendly home owners should also be aware that there are loads of ways of reducing the environmental impact of your extension. You can get low-emission glazed glass panels and even solar control glass which not only stops your room from being too hot, but also minimizes the glare.

Extend or move?

With the property market having slowed down recently, many homeowners are deciding instead to renovate their existing properties. A glass extension will give your home a futuristic, contemporary twist and show your flare for interior design. Not only are they practical, but they look fabulous as well! Who said you can’t have it all?

So, whatever you decide to do, whether you add a reception room or create some extra space for that dream kitchen you’ve always wanted, a glass extension could be the perfect addition to your home, come rain or shine!
