How to choose the ideal garden room
A conservatory that opens out from the kitchen must be planned with care. A high-level of built-in task lighting for the roof or ceiling is vital to ensure there is little heat loss or gain.

In large, open-plan spaces consider using appliances with a low noise level as sound is magnified in a glazed area with a hard-tiled floor.
