Shaped uPVC frames for interesting projects
Shaped windows and door frames for Garden Rooms
As we continue to work from home during lockdown, many people are keen to find ways to increase the living space within their home, to provide an area for an office space. A bespoke garden room with plenty of natural daylight could be a solution. As well as enabling you to make the most of your outdoor area, it can also increase the value of your home.
Bespoke Garden Rooms
Garden Rooms are becoming increasingly popular and there are a number of companies who manufacture outdoor spaces in a wide range of shapes and sizes, using a variety of materials, with some incorporating shaped uPVC windows and doors. Ask Universal Arches about bespoke shaped doors for your garden room.
Floor to ceiling windows and doors for your garden office
Floor to ceiling windows with interesting shapes such as an arched or angled frames add interest to the design. Depending on whether your garden room is located in a shaded part of the garden or in a sunny spot will determine how much natural light will enter the space.
Shaped uPVC windows for your garden room
A round or Porthole window in a garden room can be installed at a normal window height, to make the most of the view, or for added privacy they also look good positioned higher up the building to allow natural light into the room, without being overlooked.
Benefits of shaped uPVC windows in garden offices
uPVC windows are fitted with multi-point locks and locking handles, ensuring that your garden office remains secure. They are available in a wide range of colours, with White, Anthracite Grey and Black being the most popular currently. One of the benefits of choosing uPVC windows is that they require very little maintenance, they just need to be kept clean by using warm soapy water and making sure the hinges remain free of any dust or dirt.
Unique, Cool and Quirky Garden Offices
Whilst a garden room can be used as an office by day, it could also double as a Summerhouse, Gym or Craft Room in the evening and during the weekends. So, when considering the design of your garden office, why not take a look at the more unique designs available. Contact Universal Arches to discuss your shaped door and window frames.
One company who specialises in manufacturing unique space solutions is Sky Pods, based in Barnsley.
Sky Pods are constructed from genuine aircraft fuselage, the central portion of the body of an aeroplane. Completed to a high standard, they are supplied fully insulated, with electrical power, lighting and sturdy flooring. They have many uses, such as a garden office, gym, games room, garden bar or Glamping Pods and are also used within organisations for corporate hospitality with a difference, they certainly make a good talking point.
The outside of the Sky Pod is wrapped in a hard-wearing vinyl, as shown below, with a wide range of colours to choose from, which can include incorporating company logos and product images. Following the natural curves of the body of the aeroplane, Sky Pods are supplied with a set of uPVC double doors, with an arched shape to the head of the doors and an arched glazed side panel either side of the doors. Some designs feature double doors with a rectangular frame, allowing for a shaped fanlight above the doors to make the most of the full height of the Pod.
Clear toughened safety glass is perfect for allowing plenty of natural daylight into these unique garden rooms, but if preferred, there is a wide range of glazing options available, such as obscured glass, mirrored glass where you can see out, but people cannot see in and Smart glass which instantly switches between frosted and clear, for privacy when it is needed.
