What Houzz contributors are saying:
…or consider self-cleaning glassYes, there is such a thing and it does work! There’s a special, factory-applied coating that makes it harder for dust and leaves to stick to the glass, even on small inclines. It’s similar to the coating your shower screen gets. This coating can also be retrofitted, but its quality is vastly superior when done in controlled conditions in a factory. It doesn’t mean you should skip cleaning your glazed roof entirely – once every six months is usually recommended – but it may be sufficient to simply hose it down.
Bring the inside outIt’s a well-proven technique to take the floor level inside straight out into the garden to create the sense of one big space. And with modern, bifold doors, it’s easy to open right up. Nowadays, you can also get permeable paving options that remove the need for intrusive drainage channels, so that sleek, paved look runs right through.Remember though that, outside, the paving will change its patina quickly and porcelain tiles might be a better option if you want to keep inside and outside colours identical.
