Extending your home can be the perfect way to add space to your property, without the costly expenses of moving- especially if you’re only looking to add a single room to your home. Extensions can be the perfect way to breathe life into older properties, allowing you to spend more time on the things you love- from creating an arts and crafts room, to constructing a home gym, greenhouse, or cosy home office. But it’s not only about the space that a home extension offers- it’s also about the style that comes with it. From classic, traditional fixtures to modern, contemporary glazing options, there are lots of glazing ideas that can be used to spruce up your new extension- perfect for a range of projects across Winchester and beyond. In this article, we explore 10 clever glazing ideas for your new home extension, which will help to give your new space that perfect finishing touch.
1- Garden Showcase
Glazing can do so much more than just let light into your home. The right choice of windows, doors and conservatory panels can help to create an inviting atmosphere inside your property, as well as provide you with a comfortable and pleasant view of the outside world. This can be perfect for home offices, meditation areas or reading nooks. Adding glazing to an extension can be the perfect way to showcase your garden, all year round- helping you to seamlessly connect your ome to the outside world.
Natural light is great for helping to create a bright and airy feel in an extension. For a really dramatic effect, look at installing skylights, which can provide up to double the amount of light over conventional windows. This is perfect for homeowners who are looking to make their space feel more open and airy, without having to extend their space any further. There are many different types of skylights available on today’s market- so it’s worth exploring what style of skylight fits your property the best.
3- Bifold Doors
This suggestion goes well with our existing tip for showcasing your garden. To create a stunning link with your outdoor space, bifold doors are an ideal option, allowing for ventilation, streams of light and perfect views of the outdoors. Cascading panels can be pushed back to open the space up, creating a seamless transition from inside to outside, with little to no fuss. Choose from stylish wood designs or aluminium frames for a more contemporary look.
4- Patio Doors
Patio doors are a great option for extensions, as they add loads of natural light to any space they’re installed in. Known for their classic design, flawless ventilation and connection to outdoor living, patio doors could be the perfect choice for your home. They’re also an attractive addition to any home, as they come in a variety of designs and styles- perfect for modern or traditional properties.
5- French Windows
French windows allow more natural light into a room than regular windows, which can help a room feel larger and brighter. This is perfect for a range of extensions, that may benefit from the additional light- helping to open up the space. French windows are also a great option for remodelling existing windows, due to their classic, timeless design.
6- Aluminium Doors
Aluminium doors are an excellent choice for extensions due to their strength, durability, and weather-resistance. Aluminium doors are strong enough to resist wind, rain and other harsh elements, making them an ideal choice for an exterior door- especially those attached to an extension. They are also very lightweight, making them easy to open and close. If you’re looking for a home extension that’s simple and easy to access, an aluminium door might be the perfect asset for you.
7- Aluminium Windows
Keeping with our last suggestion, you may want to consider adding aluminium windows to your new extension. These windows add a touch of modernity to any property they’re installed in. They also won’t rot, rust, or warp over time, and are very easy to maintain, simply needing to be wiped down with a damp cloth occasionally- making them a perfect option for even the busiest of homeowners! They come in a range of colours, finishes, and styles, making them perfect for any style of extension. They also provide incredible soundproofing, which can be an important consideration when adding an extension to your home.
8- Glass Roofs
Looking to add a touch of class to your new extension? Check out our range of glass roofs! Glass roofs let in natural light throughout the day, giving your new extension a warmer and more comfortable feel, whatever the weather. Glass roofs can also help to reduce your home’s energy costs as well- as they are built to be thermally efficient and durable, helping to prevent heat loss throughout your extension.
9- Veranda Roofs
Here at KJM, we offer a variety of veranda roofs from renowned brand Ultraframe. Ultraframe’s Veranda conservatory options take home-to-garden integration to the next level, providing you with stunning sightlines and an abundance of natural light. Its unique glazing bars support the roof’s glass, creating a sheltered pocket of space that helps to connect your home and garden- making it an intelligent choice for a range of home extension products.
10- Flush Casement Windows
Looking for a modern touch that seamlessly blends your windows into the existing architecture of your extension? Check out our range of flush casement windows. Flush casement windows are also great when it comes to ventilation, as they are incredibly easy to open, allowing fresh air to circulate with ease. If you’re looking for a simple, understated design choice that perfectly compliments any style of home, consider adding flush casement windows to your next extension.
