A conservatory or glazed extension can be a great setting in which to entertain or simply relax and enjoy a pleasant view from the comfort of the home.
Natural light during daylight hours makes it a cheery place to read a book or catch up on emails while a good choice of atmospheric lighting in the garden can make it an excellent place to enjoy dinner with family or friends.
One prime example of how a glazed extension or conservatory can be used to great effect can be found in a restaurant in the outskirts of Glasgow.
Oregano at the Eagle Lodge in Bishopbriggs recently opened its glasshouse extension where diners are able to enjoy a romantic meal with views over an atmospherically lit decking area.
The glass structure has a high ceiling which gives an even more alfresco feel when enjoying a meal and those who wish to venture outside are protected from the Glasgow rain by a timber canopy.
Inside, the simplistic modern décor matches the smooth lines of the outdoor decking to give the glasshouse a pleasantly uncomplicated feel.
