Here are the key things to consider for the design

  1. If you intend covering the entire back of the house then you will be covering all the services for your home. Some of the services can be moved but some such as your exhaust from your gas boiler cannot be moved without a lot of disruption. It is common that we will have to leave a service space on one or other end of the sunroom where the gas boiler flue can be located and also to leave access to gully traps for sewage etc. This will reduce the available width by 450mm at a minimum.
  2. Watch the natural light. Your new sunroom may cover all the existing sources of natural light to the rear of your home so careful and professional design is required to maximise any light available.
  3. Door location and traffic. Your exit to the garden will now be through the sunroom so consider where you will locate your seating, desk, TV etc and then plan the exit route and door location. Remember we have been building these rooms for over 30 years so we have the expertise to guide you through the process and build you the best sunroom for your budget.
