Sun-rooms come in many different designs, from the conservative models to the modern designs. Most sun-rooms are elegantly designed, giving attention to such issues as security, beauty, colours, shapes and of course their utility. The ‘hothouses’ as they are popularly known are designed to complement the architectural design of the main house. The houses are made with various materials such as wood, steel, glass and PVC. Depending on the use of the ‘hothouse’, they can vary in sizes and designs.
There are various designs in the market, and the home owner looking at installing a conservatory needs to shop for the ideal designs that are in line with their personal taste and preference. They need to consider which structures are best suited for the intended purpose. The purpose may be in conserving their flowers over the winter season or for tea parties. Given the diverse use of the hot house, the person intending to purchase needs to have a clear purpose for which he or she intends to use it for.
In the design, the customer needs to appreciate various aspects such as security. One of the key structural issues the buyer should consider is how secure the sun-room is. The design of the door, the material used for the walls, the windows and the thickness of the wall will determine how secure it is.
The customers can determine the material used in the construction. They can determine if the walls and the roof will be made of glass panels or PVC materials. The various materials are ideal for different purposes. Some materials will retain more heat than others. Those that retain more heat are ideal for plants while those that retain less heat are ideal for tea parties. Home owners purchasing sun-rooms or a conservatory need to understand the various materials and how they impact on the end use of the structure.
There are a number of different structural plans with some conservative designs as well as more modern structures. The customers need to appreciate the various architectural structures and how they fit into their purpose for the conservatory. The architectural plans should complement the main house design for that elegant look.
Shapes and sizes are also a major consideration in the architectural plans. The sun-rooms come in various shapes and the customer can design the conservatories in line with their personal taste and preference. The choice of the various shapes will determine how it complements the main house. Some of the shapes are pentagonal while others are hexagonal and rectangular. The roofs also have diverse styles and are made of different materials such as glass and PVC.
The size of the sun-room will be determined largely by the intended purpose. The conservatory may be small, medium or large. The larger styles will obviously cost more than the smaller sizes as they require more materials and components to complete them.
Overall the customer will determine the sizes and the architectural plans that suit them and will put into considerations such aspects as security and the intended purpose of their conservatories. Budgetary issues will come into play since the costs vary greatly in prices.
