Single Story Extensions: Skylights
The best thing about single storey extensions is you really get to play around with the amount of light you can flood in to your home.
All the delights of a sunny day but with the warmth of a home to make the space attractive and versatile all year round.
Everything from a few skylights or a glass pyramid to long glass lanterns that allow the sunshine to pour in.
Some people worry that the sun will be too much in a single storey side extension but the great thing about bringing light in from above is that it won’t dazzle you.
If you are sure you want to be able to control the light you can add blinds or some hanging garden plants or a grapevine – both great ways to soften the glare. Not that we have to worry about the sun too often in Bristol!
Kitchen extension orangeries are a great way to blend the light of a conservatory with the heart of your home and make a great entertaining space too!
Flat Roof Single Storey Extension: Sun Terrace
The flat roof of a single story extension can make a great sun terrace. As long as you plan ahead and make the roof strong enough to walk on and add a more durable roof you can add great additional space that can be enjoyed throughout the summer.
As long as it has railings of either metal or glass, it will pass building regulations and can be a great additional spot to enjoy your home in.
If you are overlooked by neighbours some well positioned trellis with large containers can quickly grow your single storey extension some privacy. It is important to ensure the roof is robustly built to make sure that the roof can take the weight of a large container.
