Extending A Home With A New Sunroom

To create a 20sqm contemporary, modern, bright space that would seamlessly extend the home to create an enhanced living space for the client

Design Solution

We designed a large sunroom integrating mid wall pillars with anthracite grey contemporary windows.

The external doors from the home would be removed to merge the new sunroom with the internal sitting room to create a larger living area.


Because the floor area of the sunroom requirement was larger than the existing back wall of the home would allow, we decided to extend the sunroom into the side passageway, to gain the extra space required.

This required planning permission which could be arranged by us for the client. Even though the sunroom would technically be to the rear of the property, the fact that we extended past the end wall of the house meant planning permission was required.

The planning process for sunrooms normally takes 4-5 months from start to finish.

The Build

Anthracite grey sunroom frames and mid wall pillars were chosen to give the sunroom a contemporary look and feel.

3 roof windows were chosen to create a bright room, without taking light from the existing sitting room. The floor level was brought up to match the existing house floor level, so that the new flooring could run through from the existing sitting room into the new sunroom space.

The side wall was extended with a capped wall to facilitate the larger footprint of the room. Build time was 5 weeks from start to finish.


Another supremely well integrated contemporary space, completed on time and within budget.
