Our client in Totton wanted to extend and open up their kitchen to create a larger living space to allow more light to flood the room. The existing patio doors were removed along with a large part of the rear wall of the house, and enclosed with a new contemporary glazed extension.
Having done some previous research, they had seen the modern version of a conservatory/glass room with an aluminium finish and wanted to achieve the same contemporary look for their home.
Working with our designer, we suggested adding a feature high wall to the boundary side for privacy and to create the look and feel of a full glazed extension. A motorised external awning which provides a canopy over the roof to help protect against temperature build up in the Wintergarden on the hottest days or just provide a cool shading feature was also chosen.
Having visited the Thames Valley Windows showroom, our client was impressed by the superior quality of the Solarlux range and chose a Solarlux Wintergarden with Solarlux SL 60e Bi-Folding Doors in Totton. This solution provided exactly what our client was looking for, with the added benefit of it all being from the same manufacturer meaning both the roof and frames are designed to fit together seamlessly. They can now enjoy open-plan living with views of the garden and on warmer days, they can open the doors right up for that barrier-free transition from inside to out.
