Conservatory or glass room? 6 reasons why a Solarlux glass room is better

The conservatory has been a much-loved feature of homes in the UK for decades, but many people don’t realise there is another excellent option for extending your living space into the outdoors.

A Solarlux glass room can provide the extra space you require while giving you enhanced views of the outdoors and allowing as much natural light to flood your room as possible. Like a conservatory, a glass room is not thermally-insulated, but it does offer full protection from the elements and tends to have a better thermal performance than a conservatory.

So which to choose, a conservatory or glass room? Here we take a look at the six reasons why you might like to consider the glass room option.


Solarlux is renowned for high quality and innovation in design. All the glass rooms in our range are custom-made at the Solarlux manufacturing facility in Germany, using the best materials that fulfil both aesthetic and practical considerations. While Solarlux glass rooms are based on contemporary styles, they nevertheless can be matched through the use of accessories and materials to the interior design of any home.


Solarlux is proud of its engineering heritage. As the inventor of the modern bi-fold door 35 years ago, this German family-run company continues to lead the way in creating precision-engineered products that not only look stunning but are easy to use and maintain.


The unframed side panels of a glass room create the illusion of being outside. Because there are no frames to the glazed elements of a glass room, unlike a conservatory, they offer unobstructed views of the outside. Viewed from a distance, the clean lines of a glass room are almost imperceptible, meaning they also have a low visual impact on your outside space.


Solarlux manufactures all its products with sustainability in mind. All the timber is certified and sourced from sustainable forestry and the aluminium is completely recyclable. The company’s commitment to sustainability has been recognised through its PEFC and FSC certifications.


Solarlux glass rooms are custom-made to your bespoke requirements, meaning each one is unique. The choice of designs, colours and materials mean that individual needs can be met and the glass room seamlessly integrated into your home’s style and architecture. A wealth of high-quality accessories can enhance your glass room living space even further. Everything from integrated LED spotlights to infrared heaters can be added to give you the comfort and usability you desire.
