Having spent the summer months enjoying warm weather, spending more time outdoors and embracing the longer days and nights, many of us are now thinking about how we can adapt our homes to not only maximise the benefits of this time of year, but to find ways to make our homes lighter, more energy efficient and comfortable throughout the winter months too.
For those who have already extended their home with a Mozolowski & Murray Conservatory, Orangery, Extension, Sun Lounge or Garden Room, they will know that transitioning from Summer to Winter and from Winter to Summer isn’t a chore but a pleasure, pertaining mainly to the quality of materials we use, our skilled in-house manufacturing process and expert installation teams, all guaranteeing maximum energy efficiency, all year-round comfort and exceptional durability, all designed to last a lifetime.
Each and every one of our glass and timber projects incorporates high levels of insulation, from advanced insulation materials in the base and low walls, high performance gaskets and seals, to climate control glass with A-rated energy performance and thermal efficiency, ensuring all year-round use and comfort. The advancement of modern glazing and the microscopically thin and transparent reflective coating on the glass reflects long wave radiation back into the room, thus retaining heat whilst maximising natural light transmission and providing superb thermal efficiency throughout every season.
With many of our projects specifically designed to connect internal rooms and provide open plan living, the thermal benefits can transcend throughout the home, making this a fantastic way to heat entire sections of your house, particularly on sunny days throughout the year.
Many of our clients tell us their new glass and timber extension is where they now spend the majority of their time as it’s comfortable in the summer and super cosy in the winter.
Garden rooms have become a surprisingly efficient space to enjoy also. With working from home common place now, many people are finding their Garden Room Office a great motivational and diverse space in the summer and an extremely energy efficient way to work in the winter while benefiting from lots of natural light.
All Mozolowski & Murray structures are uniquely designed to keep you cool in summer and warm in winter, where even in the harshest of our Scottish climate, you can comfortably enjoy your natural surroundings in a warm, secure and light space, making winter a more pleasurable time of year within your home.
And because of the bespoke service Mozolowski & Murray offers, each design can be tailored to suit your own personal preference, such as adding underfloor heating, integrated heating panels/radiators or a wood burning stove for that extra comfort on those wild winter days.
The versatility of such a unique addition to your home means you can adapt your living requirements to suit the changing seasons. Your summer reading corner may become your festive dining room just in time for Christmas Dinner or your sumptuous Sun Lounge may become an extra bedroom when the kids return home from their studies, not to mention the perfect Hogmanay Party Orangery!
With integrated technologies offering stunning lighting possibilities, sound systems and electronic privacy blind solutions, a winter Conservatory, Orangery or Sun Lounge can create a real wow factor in any home and will often be the go-to room for every occasion.
Having a space that can bring you lifestyle enhancing benefits at any time of year is hugely desirable not just in terms of the added value to your property but how it positively impacts on your everyday wellbeing. Winter doesn’t have to be something we dread but something we can embrace and enjoy in the comfort and style of our own homes.
