Independent Living Spaces – Garden Rooms & Sunrooms
If you are fortunate enough to have the area to spare on your property, then modern garden rooms & sun-rooms could be the perfect solution for those who want to create new living space without remodeling the house.
Garden Rooms, as real alternative to a “traditional Conservatory” can range in size from the most basic sun-room to full scale self contained independent living spaces that can be used as an office, study, studio, playroom or purely for relaxation – with some designs being able to be fully installed in just a few days.
You should be able to find quite few interesting designs and ideas that could be suitable for your own home, but having said that, not all designs are low priced and may not be suitable for your budget, which is why it’s good to get comparisons
The design that you have in mind should complement your existing home in as many ways as possible, don’t’ build a big conservatory on a small house, don’t go for modern designs where you have an existing building with lots of character (many hardwood conservatories are really good at working with older properties).
In most cases there may not be a need to apply for planning permission (your chosen installer can advise you on this subject) however, it is advisable to check with your local planning authority first, just in case there are some restrictions in your area of the country
