Great EscapesPublished on 28th June 2018
The great summer exodus is well under way, but with the heat wave we’re enjoying, seeing summer sun abroad isn’t as necessary as it once was. . The staycation, therefore, is becoming a much more prevalent feature of British life. With sun shining on our lawns and more and more ways to enjoy outdoor living arriving in the UK, why wouldn’t we make the most of it?
At Apropos, our bespoke extensions and conservatories are the ideal solution for a summer stay-cay. Whether that’s means having a gorgeous garden getaway, or creating an open-plan living area. Either way, we can provide a beautiful new space, where all the family can stay and play together.
Among the most common complaints of the modern parent is that despite all living under the same roof, they rarely see their children. Our houses are so compartmentalised that there’s little room for family interaction.
An Apropos bespoke Orangery could be just what you’re looking for. Designed to deliver character, style and functionality in equal parts, an Apropos orangery makes the ideal home-hub. Light and airy with bi-folding doors swung wide on to the garden, an orangery is the ideal space to bring all the family together. Stay-cay or Monday, few can resist the pull of a bright, light space in which to chill out. An orangery, or more specifically, your orangery, is a wonderful place to be.
If getting away from the family during the six week break – without packing them off to Granny’s – is more of a priority, then a garden studio could be the answer. Offering a detached and tranquil space for you to call your own while the kids take over the house, a garden studio is an oasis. With limitless uses they are entirely adaptable, resulting in the ideal place to do whatever it is you enjoy most. The best bit about our garden studios? You can lock them too – keeping out any unwanted visitors.
If you’d prefer to keep a closer eye, then a glazed garden room can be a good compromise. Usually still attached to the home, but less integrated than an orangery, a glazed garden room can easily become a grown-up chill-out zone, which allows you to monitor the children while having a space to keep your sanity intact. They also make a fabulous place for entertaining.
Like puppies, an Apropos glass extension is not just for the summer holidays; it’s for life. Whether you plan on making the staycation an annual thing or not, an investment now could pay dividends in the future. Giving you extra space to grow as a family and somewhere everyone can enjoy throughout the summer holidays and beyond.
