When extending your home, it pays to consider how much natural light the proposed extension will make use of. This is because natural light is a great way to maximise the amount of value an extension will add. So with that in mind, we’ve got 3 home extension ideas that make excellent use of natural light for you to take a look at it.
A highly-refined orangery
Those searching for orangeries Cheshire are probably already aware of how good orangeries are for maximising natural light. For those who don’t know, however, it’s difficult to find an extension that exudes a sense of luxury quite like an orangery.
Known for their solid walls, flat roofs and atrium tops, orangeries also feature a plastered perimeter ceiling. This gives them the look and feel of another room in your house. Therefore, you can use them comfortably throughout the year and in whatever way you like. Whether that’s as an extra dining space, a room to entertain guests or somewhere to study, the possibilities with an orangery are virtually endless.
When looking for that perfect blend of increased living space and thermal performance, a tiled conservatory roof is just what you’re looking for. These roofs offer an energy efficient structure that will stay comfortable all year long. Provided they’re well built, conservatories and orangeries can also increase the value of your property by 5%!
A stylish garden room
Garden rooms are designed with a purpose and that purpose is to make as much use of natural light as possible. Built mostly of high-quality glazing that is supported by slim but strong frames, garden rooms can be used as a peaceful retreat, inside which you can soak up bountiful quantities of the sun’s rays.
But what if I am unable to extend?
If extending your current home is out of your price range or you don’t have any space to build upon, there are ways of adding natural light to your home without extending. Bifold doors are one option; these are a modern style of door that utilises slim frames and large areas of glazing so light entry is maximised. Alternatively, a set of sliding patio doors is another option you might consider. Or, if you prefer a more traditional door style, opt for French doors instead. If you have an existing extension you’d like to let more light into, we also offer replacement conservatory roofs!
