Such types of rooms are very popular in New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Europe and the United States of America.
Sun rooms are normally built in the garden or back yard of the building where there is a beautiful ambience in the surroundings. A high quality tempered glass is used for the walls as well as the roof. They are also framed using PVC, aluminum or wood and all the sides are glazed. In order to address the issue of privacy, the glass is tinted by frosting or making use of breeze block.
Some of the sun rooms are established and designed in such a way that they exploit a beautiful scenic view while others are created in order to collect sunlight for the purpose of light and warmth.
