Sunrooms House

A very popular choice with sunrooms is to utilise floor-to-ceiling windows around the perimter of the sunroom, with access via a sliding door on either side. This creates a fully enclosed space while still maintaining a bright and airy feel that is desirable in a sunroom.

If height is limited in your sunroom, a gable (pitched) roof is a great way to maximise your space, and also allows the installation of fans and pendants.

Sunrooms Outdoor

Continuing the line of the roof past the sunroom creates a seemless transition into an additional pergola for a truly indoor-outdoor entertaining and living space. A popular choice in this scenario is to add a stacking or bifold door to give the flexibility of being able to fully open up your sunroom when needed.

In most cases, our clients opt for an insulated roof panel (see our insulated pergolas page for more information on insulated roof panels) as the choice of roofing material for their sunroom. This prevents excess heat coming in from the roof, preventing excess hear in your sunroom during the summer, and trapping your indoor heat during the winter.

Another great way to control the indoor ambient temperature and more closely mimic a traditional home extension is to include insulated wall panels (similar to the insulated roof panels) around the perimeter of the sunroom. These can be half walls with operable windows and insect screens above, or a full floor-to-ceiling-wall for additional privacy from neighbours and a cosy overall feel.
