The Modern Greenhouse

10x6-aluminium-frame-horticultural-glass-greenhouseThe common garden greenhouse is a great addition to any garden as it keeps your plants, vegetables, fruit, seedlings and more warm throughout the winter while not being an eyesore. But there is one downside to a greenhouse and that is that they can be a terrible suntrap in the summer. Going into a greenhouse on a hot and sunny summer’s day for just five minutes will leave you hot and sweaty while gasping for air – this is a huge downside.

But they look so fantastic, so clean, so fresh and so light – why not try and bring some of this clean freshness into your home by having gorgeous glass sliding doors?

They will open up your room to light, making the room brighter and looking more spacious. You can sit on your sofa watching the sun go down in the evening, watching the squirrels in your garden, hopping from branch to branch. You can watch the frogs in spring hopping around in search for a local pond and you can watch your flowers get ready for a peaceful night of growing, preparing to get beautiful in the morning again.

As with a greenhouse, the think glass sliding doors will help to keep your home warm through the colder months, but in the hotter weather you can open the sliding doors wide. There is no need to worry about doors slamming as the breeze enters your home, these sliding doors have no where to slam as they are held safely in place, slid along the inside of your home.GreenhouseInside2b

You get the best of both worlds throughout the year. In the winter the house is warm and snugly and you can sit and watch the thunder storms or fireworks outside, while the summer months you can sit with the doors wide open, a gentle breeze cooling you while you watch the sun rise and the sun set.

That is why the modern greenhouse is such a great idea to bring into your home. Open up your home for a brighter and lighter living by getting glorious glass sliding doors.

Dear Deidre – I’ve a Dreary and Dull House

old-ladyDear Deidre,

I am so fed up with my dreary and dull house, we have windows that’s sills are covered in books, vases, ornaments and out of date birthday cards. There really is minimal light entering the lounge through these small and grubby windows. I just don’t see the point in cleaning them for me to then pile everything back in front of them.

I just wish I had a lighter, brighter room, one that welcomed in the sunshine and brightened up the room to make it look more spacious. I have re-done the lounge, we have a pale carpet anyway but now we have magnolia walls and cream sofas to try and brighten up the room and make it … nicer, but nothing we are doing works. The room just looks dull and dreary due to lack of natural light.

I really am at the end of my tether, so much so that I avoid using the lounge as we put so much money into doing up the interior and it still looks and dull and boring as ever.

Please help Deidre, what do you suggest we can do?

Yours Sincerely,

Fed-Up Freda from Folkestone.

Jenny_Eclair_2this-one1Hello Freda,

I am very sorry to hear of your woes, having had a chat with some home interior and home exterior experts it seems that it is not the room itself that is bringing you down, but instead the lack of natural light – and natural light can help with SAD illness too!

We think that the best option to make your home lighter and brighter and to make you happier in general would be to consider bi-fold doors or sliding doors.

These are large glass doors that can open a room to the great outdoors. They bring in all the natural light you need to make your room lighter, bright and more spacious, while taking up only minimal space within the room.Aluminium-bi-folding-doors2

The bi-fold doors, for example, fold back onto themselves so they need a lot less room than a regular door that would swing back. A glass sliding door slides back onto the inside of your home, so again no additional space is used, leaving your lounge looking and feeling spacious.

I really hope you like our advice and I hope the extra light makes you and your family happier. Hopefully you will change from Fed-Up Freda to Fun and Happy Freda!

Yours Sincerely,

Deidre.
