The all-year-round glass room from CRL

The pandemic sparked a new trend for homeowners, with an increasing amount of Brits investing in their outdoor spaces. More time being spent at home than ever before, coupled with the encouragement to meet with others outside where possible, saw UK consumers investing £26 billion on their gardens, including installing outdoor rooms, according to home insurance company Go Compare.

Our outdoor spaces play an essential part in our overall health and wellbeing, but the great British weather cannot always be relied upon, with outdoor rooms offering the perfect solution. Suitable for use all year round, such structures enable the garden to be enjoyed whatever the weather, with uninterrupted views of our green and floral spaces, an abundance of fresh air and importantly in the UK, shelter from the elements.

With new decking or patio areas being high on the list of home improvement priorities since 2020, respondents to the Go Compare research were just as likely to top this work off with some kind of canopy.
Enjoying outdoor areas All-year-round CRL Glass Rooms provide homeowners with a comfortable environment to enjoy their outdoor areas, while protecting them from the changing seasons, whether it be sun, wind or rain, with a maximum projection length of 600cm to provide ample shelter. This transforms the garden into a permanently usable space and an extension of our living spaces when spending time with family and entertaining friends at home.

One of the highlights and main advantages of CRL Glass Rooms is their intelligent modular design. The main structure is aluminium, meaning very few supports are required to span large areas. The intelligent design of the connectors enables a high degree of flexibility and the attractive design gives a sleek, lightweight look while making it extremely stable and giving the structure longevity.

The inconspicuous drainage is cleverly integrated into the post, with rainwater channelled through the gutter into the drain pipe. The front profile of the post can be easily removed using a clip system to allow easy access to the drain, with the drainage itself concealed in the profile underneath the side gutter and wall connector cover for a minimal, fuss-free look.

All rafters come with integrated channels for fitting lighting and discretely attaching motorised awnings. The glazed roof draws huge amounts of natural light on to the terrace below, with optional integrated electric roof blinds available to provide comfort when the sun gets too low.

Optional sliding glass doors can be installed too, with flush mounted floor tracks providing a seamless transition to the outside. These smooth-running and easy to operate transparent doors ensure protection from bad weather, affording a clear view of the garden.

CRL Glass Rooms have a modern progressive design, with all of the individual components such as rafters and wall connectors designed to complement each other perfectly, creating a sophisticated and modern appearance. With the structure available in a range of standard RAL colours, its timeless design integrates seamlessly with almost all types of architecture, and with the range of optional extras it is possible to create a space that is seamlessly in keeping with the property and its surroundings. The flexible design of the Glass Rooms means many variations are possible, and with the optional extras of sliding doors and vertical blinds, homeowners can create a unique space to enjoy their garden throughout the changing seasons.
