Installing a sunroom is something that can be completed during the construction of the property, or at any point in the future. But if your new build has not long finished completion, or is still under construction, it’s never to early to consider adding a sunroom. But why? And what should you consider when choosing a sunroom for a new build property? Well, here at Inspired Spaces, we are Manchester’s leading conservatory, orangery and sunroom experts. We install a range of high quality, professional sunroom options. And this is our guide to everything you should know about sunrooms for new build properties.
What are the considerations for choosing a sunroom for a new build property?
There are a number of considerations to take into account when thinking about installing a sunroom as part of your new build property. These considerations include:
- Side return or rear property extension- while you might think a sunroom is only suitable for the rear of the property, some homeowners successfully convert the side return to an orangery or sunroom space. The choice you make will depend on the space available, and the interior layout of your home. If you want your orangery to be an extension to your kitchen for example, a side return sunroom that widens the kitchen space can be a good option.
- Direction the sunroom faces- when installing a sunroom there isn’t always the option of deciding which direction this should face. But if your new build property is still under construction, then more options may be available. If you want to enjoy the sun all day long, a south facing sun room can be a good idea. Although in summer months you will need to consider opening windows to allow this space to cool, or using thermally efficient glass like that which we can offer, here at Inspired Spaces. East or west facing sunrooms offer early morning and afternoon sun respectively. Choose the direction that will best suit your lifestyle.
- Shape of the sunroom- you will also need to consider the shape of the sunroom you want to create, to be able to make the most out of the additional space this provides. Sunrooms are typically rectangular, but you can opt for square or even L shaped options.
