Sunrooms built for your Garden

A sunroom is similar to a conservatory but sunrooms feature a solid tile or slate roof with a vaulted internal ceiling. To put it another way, it is an extension with lots of windows. A sunroom is also called a Sun Lounge and it is a structure usually built onto the side or back of a house. It allows you to admire and enjoy the surroundings and the views while being sheltered and protected from rain, wind and other weather conditions. As the name suggests, this room has large windows in order to allow panoramic views, where the sun gets through and the room is filled with light and warmth.

What is the advantage of a sunroom in Northern Ireland?

Those who really require an extension to their home to create more space for family, need a sunroom. This is because a sunroom can be used any day or night any time of the year, so if the kids want to watch TV in the new room on a winter night, then they can. The sunroom must be designed to ensure minimal light loss to the existing internal rooms of the house.

Sunrooms are a traditional build that are more integrated into the house than conservatories and are usually completed using more core construction materials. They offer large spans of glass and roof windows that will help brighten up your home’s interior spaces. Customers enjoy their sunroom as they strengthen the connection between indoors and out, allowing more natural illumination into the house and better views of the garden, while also helping to provide ample warmth via solar gain.

    What do I need to do when Turkingtons have finished?

    Once we've completed our work you will need to add skirting boards, flooring whether it be tiles, wood or carpet and simply give it a coat of paint. Then, enjoy!

    We recommend getting a professional in to fit your skirting boards and flooring, for the perfect long-lasting finish.

    Sunroom design & materials

    At Turkingtons we will help you choose products that work in aesthetic harmony with the main house, such as local materials that blend with your home. Also reflecting the same roof pitch as the property is another way to complement the dwelling and produce a seamless natural result. Most of our clients choose to use these rooms as social spaces, often integrated into a large kitchen-diner. Some prefer to have a zone that allows them to easily relax ‘outside’. Sliding and bi-folding doors with a low threshold can handily work as window and entrance – they’ll look great and help connect with the outside whether open or closed.

    In summary, investing in a sunroom that has been well-designed by looking at its orientation, thermal performance and mass will add hugely to your enjoyment of your existing home. A sunroom can be a flexible space for relaxing, as well as entertaining in, and I’d expect that for many of you and your pets, it will become a go-to space all year round.

    The sunroom is usually furnished with comfortable armchairs, lounge chairs and sofas. It’s a space where you can entertain guests or simply relax with the family. To emphasize the brightness of the room you can paint the walls while. Skylights are also common in sunrooms. Also, if you want to create a stronger connection with the outdoors, you can add plants and flowers.

    See how your sunroom will look on your home before you buy

    We offer a free expert design service, using state-of-the-art design software. This means we can superimpose a 3D rendering of your new sunroom over a photograph of your home. With this, you can see exactly how it will look on your home and allow you to make any changes in design before you go ahead with your choice.
    Incorporating traditional roofing alongside rooflights can help balance thermal performance, too. Not having an entirely glazed extension will mean you can focus your views through well thought-out glazing. The result should provide the desired look while not costing a fortune to run.

    Design options

    We have a broad range of both modern and traditional designs and options to make your Sunroom your own. We can install a wide range of styles in all shapes and sizes to complement most types and sizes of homes. Choose between Edwardian, Gable, Victorian, Lean-to or bespoke P shapes and specifically design them to your individual requirements and needs.
