Let the Sunshine In! Sunrooms vs. Conservatories

Posted: Wednesday 18th October 2017 |Author: Elglaze Team

What’s the difference between a sunroom and a conservatory? Discover the options with Elglaze!

The days are getting shorter and we’re seeing the sun far less frequently. Light is becoming a resource we want to make the most of as winter begins. And then of course, when the days begin to lengthen again, we want to be able to maximise our enjoyment of all that additional daylight.

It’s often at this time of year that homeowners begin to think about creating a room that allows them to maximise the available light no matter what time of year it is. And the answer for many is a conservatory. Today’s conservatories are very different to those of yesterday. Technological advances with glazing and innovations such as the Equinox Tiled Roof System mean that many of the problems associated with older conservatories – such as being able to regulate their internal temperature, are things of the past. Whether you opt for a glass roof, or an Equinox Tiled one for your conservatory, Elglaze design some of the most advanced conservatories available today.

But what’s the difference between a conservatory and a sunroom? Or, as many prefer to call it today – a conservatory style extension? A sunroom like a conservatory has large areas of glazing to make the most of the available light and give you that ‘bringing the outdoors in’ feeling. Unlike a conservatory however, it will have a roof such as the Equinox system and usually one insulated wall. The space can be open to the rest of the house if you are seeking to create a large kitchen/living/entertaining area. Like the majority of conservatories, sunrooms usually don’t require planning permission and fall under ‘Permitted Development’. Elglaze can advise you on this.

So, conservatory or sunroom? If you’re still not certain, this is another area where Elglaze can assist you. We’ve been designing, building and installing conservatories now for 34 years.
