Additions That’ll Make Your Home Feel Sunny All Year Round

A sunny home doesn’t need to be open plan and made of as much glass as possible. It just needs to feel like a warm and welcoming place to be! As such, if you want your home to feel sunny all year round, even when the darkest days of winter come around, these are the additions to consider building. If you’ve got the time, space, and budget, planning a renovation project will bring your dream home even closer to reality!



A conservatory is the first thing people think of when it comes to summer home additions. It’s one of the most value adding renovations a home can undergo, and it also provides a lot more space to the family living inside for whatever they need. It’s not just a place to hang out when skies are blue – it can be an office, dining room, and party room throughout the year too.

Conservatories tend to be quite easy to add to a property as well. If you’ve got space around the side or the back, you can adjust the garden fencing, construct your conservatory, and then seal off the space again. As long as you enjoy your new conservatory space, you’ll have the sunniest room possible on your hands!

Roof Terrace


A roof terrace can be a hard sell, both to homeowners and the housing association they’re a member of. However, if you live in a property that’s got plenty of roof space, and you’re interested in getting a flat roofing service to lay out a new asphalt cover, think about creating a whole terrace from the space.

This adds another dynamic room to your home, which can be used as a summer space to cool off in, a family space for big dinners, and a space to spend the winter when the ground is frozen and flakes are falling from the sky. It can be a very magical home upgrade, and if you’ve got the space for it and potential access to it, think about undergoing this renovation. Several roof design types are available to choose.

Swimming Pool

If you don’t have a swimming pool in the back garden, measure the space and see if you’ve got enough ground for one to be fitted. Going swimming is one of the first things we think about when it comes to sunny activities, and if you don’t even have to leave the property to take a dip into cool waters, summer is going to be all the more fun!

You can use the pool all year round, seeing as the water will be routinely heated and you’ll be cleaning out the filters on a regular basis. Go for a few laps in spring and autumn, although we may recommend thinking twice before unrolling the cover in the depths of winter… Either way, you’ve got a pool now and it’s going to increase the value of your home by tenfold!

If you want your home to feel warm and sunny, budget for these additions.
