Find out how to build a stunning glass extension and create the home and lifestyle you’ve always wished for.

What is a Wintergarden?

A Wintergarden is a bespoke, contemporary glass extension that can be added to the rear or side of your home. Solarlux Wintergardens are sleek, stylish and perfect for homeowners looking to add the wow factor to their home.

And, because a Wintergarden is thermally insulated and comes with a range of shading, ventilation and lighting options, you can use it all year round.

Why should you add a glass extension to your home?

A Wintergarden glass extension will provide extra living space for your family, and help you make the most of your property and surroundings. It will add value to your home and create a seamless transition between your house and garden.

The light and space created by this glazed structure can also work wonders for your mental wellbeing. A glass roof offers gorgeous sky views during the day and star-gazing at night while full-length windows and doors will allow ample natural light to flood your home.

What can a Wintergarden be used for?

Pretty much anything! With its outstanding thermal properties, a Wintergarden can be used as you’d use any other room in your home – there’s no need to worry about it being too cold in winter or too warm in summer.

So why not use it as a sunroom, an additional lounge, a playroom for the children, a dining room, a home office, a home gym or yoga space, or an impressive entertainment area? The possibilities are endless!

Can you use a Wintergarden all year round?

Absolutely. High-tech glass regulates the room's temperature and provides great thermal insulation. You can install an awning for shade and sliding roof windows for increased ventilation.

A state-of-the-art weather station can automatically change the room's temperature, open roof vents and extend your awning to keep you perfectly cool during summer and cosy in the winter. It can also play music and project images, helping you to create an idyllic setting ideal for hosting friends and family.

How long will a Wintergarden last?

Solarlux Wintergarden glass extensions are designed and manufactured to last a lifetime. Only high-quality construction materials are used and fitted with exact precision. The structure is robust and rigorously tested to withstand high winds, heavy snow and torrential downpours – ideal for our unpredictable British weather.

How can you design an extension to match your personality?

Solarlux Wintergardens are custom made to your specification, so let your imagination run free and design a space that not only meets your practical requirements but also reflects your personality, style and creative vision.

Choose the size, colour and fittings of your Wintergarden. Install bi-fold doors and/or sliding doors for easy access and create a seamless transition between your home and garden. All sorts of windows - shaped, tilt and turn, and fixed – can be fitted to create an airy space ideal for open-plan living for you and your family.

Our specialist team are on hand to help make your dream a reality. We’ll book a design consultation to discuss your needs and ideas. You can also explore models at our Leeds display for inspiration. We will survey your home to take exact measurements and we can offer custom design recommendations. 3D images can be drawn up to help you envision what your Wintergarden will look like. We’ll walk you through every line of the drawings, and cover every intricate detail from what window handles will be used, to how the lights will dim.
