Add some height to your living space with a hardwood Garden Room

Are you thinking of adding a Garden Room to your property? Who can blame you? These  extensions are perfect for those looking to add some height to their living area. We  designed a project for a very happy client in Potten End, Hertfordshire, that featured a  tiled roof, with a tall ceiling that has exposed seasoned oak beams to make the room feel  bigger. The end result was a beautiful, spacious, oak framed Garden Room that blends  seamlessly with the existing property.

Looking to for a light and airy living space?

If you’re looking to create a light and airy living space, then we would suggest adding a roof  lantern into your design. Oak roof lanterns are beautiful features, typically used in orangeries, that maximise the natural light to create a bright and spacious living room.

We’ve had lots of our clients incorporate roof lanterns into their hardwood orangery designs, especially those using the space as a kitchen or living room extension. The oak orangery in the image below is from our Kendrick case study in Surrey. This client wanted a hardwood orangery as a way of expanding on their existing kitchen space, whilst also including a spiral staircase wine cellar below the orangery floor.

The addition of the large oak roof lantern allows in plenty of natural light into the living  space, and the solar-control glass that we used means that summer heat is reduced by a  staggering 83%. This oak framed living space is not only light and bright, it is also stays at a comfortable temperature when it’s hot outside in the summer.

Take a look at the image below from an oak conservatory project that we completed for a client with a Listed Property in Hertfordshire. Not only did we assist with the design and build of the conservatory, we also helped with attaining the planning permission to build on the Grade 2 Listed Property.

The objective of this project was to create a relaxing family space with an uninterrupted view of their garden. We achieved this by designing an oak conservatory that  faces into the garden and utilises the windows to allow for beautiful garden views. By using high-quality glazing specification and solar control glass, the living space stays cool in the summer heat and warm during those colder winter months.
