Enhancing Your Home with Glass Extensions

A few years ago, most of us were content to soak up the sun in a modest sunroom or a simple conservatory. Now, with Pilkington Self-Cleaning Glass, there are so many modern alternatives to add a stunning contemporary edge to your home. Glass extensions can do wonders for your living space – letting in more light and giving the illusion of extended space.

Adding Glass Extensions to Your Home

Glass extensions can create a sense of space and are less intrusive than a timber-framed conservatory. Now, there are ways to further enhance the aesthetics and functionality of conservatories with glass extensions.

A well lit and ventilated glass room can improve the ambiance and enhance the feeling of light and space and glass extensions afford you the option to achieve this effect. Once transformed, they can serve as playrooms, sitting rooms or dining areas that flow seamlessly into the rest of your home.

By enhancing your home with glass extensions, utilising glass from the Pilkington Activ™ range, you’ll have the added benefit of bringing the outdoors in, as Pilkington Activ™ helps provide a cleaner and clearer view.

Advantages of Glass Extensions

  • Garden lovers – Glass extensions can give seamless views across the garden and allow you to enjoy your outlook, no matter what the season.
  • Space – By making the most of natural light, glass opens up rooms allowing smaller spaces to look bigger, giving an indoor/outdoor flow.
  • Can potentially add overall value to your home when it comes to selling.

Technical Tips for Glass Extensions

Heat emissions can be an issue with glass, which is why Pilkington Insulating Glass Units are an ideal option when considering glass extensions in your home. An Insulated Glass Unit is a specifically crafted combination of two panes of glass, separated by a thin pocket of air or gas filling. Simple yet effective, double glazed glass will improve the functionality of any area of your property that you’d like to add glass extensions to. If you live in the UK, please remember that double glazing is required by law when replacing windows.
