    Hi, I was the interior stylist on this project. I am not a construction expert but have a similar roof in polycarbonate, the main issue is heat loss in winter and over heating in summer.

    Bump up the light levelsA glass-roofed extension or conservatory is naturally light and bright. But make sure it’s a welcoming space in the evenings and on gloomier days, too, by adding plenty of artificial light. Places for spotlights are limited, but take this as an opportunity – this Moroccan-style glass lantern adds a pretty note to the modern space, working as decoration in the daytime as well as illumination at night.

    Enjoy an ever-changing sceneWhat could be better than the chance to admire your garden from a whole new angle? Take in the trees and a huge expanse of ever-changing sky from a glass extension. Just be prepared to don your sunglasses while you prep for dinner.Get the lowdown on orangeries

    Go gloriously glassIf your budget can stretch to a fully glazed pitched roof, it can be an absolutely stunning option. Be aware, though, that you need to choose the right glass – self-cleaning if possible and thermally efficient. You then need to consider how to regulate the heat of the room – you don’t want to scorch in summer (check out low-E glass) or freeze in winter. Heated glass is a great option to stop the cold descending from above, and it also gets the snow moving as soon as it has fallen, preventing heavy build-up. This is such a dramatic space that looks lovely in the sunshine, but I think it must be spectacular in a storm – much more exciting!Browse glass box extensions
