For decades homeowners have embraced the opportunity of bringing the garden into the home by adding glazed structures such as orangeries and conservatories – creating a light-filled, tranquil space to enjoy garden views whatever the weather.

Fast forward and today’s home owner has the perfect opportunity to create a light-filled space that can blend easily into the style of the home yet, still create a space that blurs the line between the solidity of the home and the natural habitat of the garden.  But the beauty of today’s glazed extension is that unlike conservatories and orangeries of yesteryear the systems available today deliver far superior thermal performance and deliver all-year round usage – so whether you’re watching the snow fall or relaxing on a summers evening a well specified conservatory or orangery  will deliver the perfect escape thanks to it’s highly engineered glass and clever built-in technology that reflects the heat away in the summer but retains the heat in the winter.
 
But it’s not just today’s glass technology that delivers the ultimate space.  Market leading company Ultraframe have developed a number of extension systems that enable you to design in more solidity to your extension – ensuring that whatever your design style you’ll be able to have a space.  If you’ve always longed for an orangery style extension that delivers a combination of solidity around the edges but a beautiful glazed roof apex then is achievable - the internal plastered pelmet perimeter ceiling  can feature  subtle down lighters and even cabling for the ultimate surround-sound experience.  But the beauty and finesse of a glazed extension doesn’t end there – it’s essential that your conservatory or orangery looks beautiful both inside and out – easily achieved with the addition of an external Cornice which hides ugly rainwater goods and adds a touch of class to any extension.
 
There’s never been a better time to create the perfect indoor-outdoor space with a vast array of options available to create a space that completely meets your needs – whether you’re looking for a fully glazed extension, something with some solidity at the edges like the Ultraframe Internal Pelmet or Thermally Efficient Extension, or a completely solid roof, like with Livinroof and Ultraroof380 then the perfect time to choose a super-thermal and all-year round space is now.
