Old Conservatory to a New Sunroom

Replace An Old Conservatory With A New Sunroom Dublin 16

Design Solution

The existing conservatory was built by Brightspace over 25 years ago and was in great condition but needed to be replaced with a more modern and warmer sunroom design.

The shape in a 3 part bay was now dated and the clients preferred a more modern rectangular shape which would allow for a large picture frame window to be installed to give better views of the garden.

As we would be changing the shape the decision was taken to remove the entire structure including the floor and this would also allow us to increase the insulation in the floor.

The clients enjoyed their garden so we included a large picture window to the front of the sunroom and then french doors with full length glass panels each side leading onto the patio


The conservatory was open plan off the house so a hoarding would be required during the build. There was an existing brick patio that would need to be rebuilt to suit the shape of the new sunroom.

The house is a bungalow so the new roof would be measured to suit the pitch of the existing roof to allow it to blend in.


At the survey stage the area of the patio which was to be affected was identified and we passed on details of our paving contractor for our client to engage.

4 Fakro roof windows were installed along with a glass triangle window to the roof maximising the light to the inside.

The sunroom roof had brown tiles to match the house and corner block pillars to give a more cosy effect to the inside. The sunroom was insulated with an airtight spray foam insulation in the ceiling.


The entire build was carried out over a period of five weeks and was completed without any disruption to the clients house. A bright porcelain floor was laid to reflect light back into the house.

The clients painted all the interior in white and this together with 4 roof windows and a bright floor meant there was no loss of light from when they had a conservatory.

The large picture window brought the garden into the room and could be enjoyed from the beautiful furniture selected by the client to compliment the contemporary interior.
