Designing a Custom Solarium

Blog Post Updated on: January 31, 2022

Solariums, or glass enclosures, are a unique way to add additional living space to your home. Made of energy-efficien one-inch-thick double-pane insulated glass, a custom solarium provides a comprehensive view of your outdoor surroundings, thanks to its glass roof — which is the main difference between a solarium and a traditional sunroom.

When designing a custom solarium to fit your home, lifestyle, and budget, there are a number of options to consider including roof style, room size, frame color, glass, etc. Designing a solarium for your home should be a personal experience so you are sure to get exactly what you need and want.


Solarium Options & Considerations

Roof Style

A straight eave glass solarium is ideal for projects that involve extreme height and roof pitch. Straight eave solariums are available with two roof options. A single-slope roof has its highest point where it joins the main structure; it is one plane sloping away from the home. A gable roof has two sloping sides that meet along a center ridge.

Frame Color Options

Solarium frames are made of aluminum which is one of the strongest materials available. It is resistant to temperature and humidity, so your frame will never rust, warp or rot, providing years of reliable use. When designing and building a solarium for your home, there are a few frame colors to choose from. These frame options will allow you to select the color that will best match your existing structure. The color choices are white, sandstone or bronze
