A Glass Act: Connect your house to the outside

2 Mins

Ask any homeowner what they'd like more of, invariably space will top the list. We want more, and we want it to enhance our lifestyle. And the new glass extensions do just that.

In a city like Edinburgh, which has more listed buildings than anywhere else in the UK, you might expect modern design to be frowned upon but in fact the opposite is true. Building a contemporary glass extension in a contrasting material onto an historic building is more subtle than traditional conservatories because it allows the existing structure to be seen more easily thanks to the high-grade glazing.

This October, i-on readers are invited to the exclusive opening event of Sidey in Edinburgh where you can learn more about these extensions as well as renovating traditional properties.

Sidey is Scotland's one stop shop for well designed glass extensions and prides itself on bespoke innovations that transform your home. Their extensions give you more space to live, entertain and relax. Following on from the success of their Perth and Dundee showrooms, Sidey brings its quality range of windows, doors and conservatories to Edinburgh, with a brand new showroom, just around the corner from Ikea on Pentland Industrial Estate.

Join i-on for the exclusive launch weekend, 6 - 7 October, 10am - 5pm, and get the most from your glass extension

  • Drop into masterclasses on renovating traditional properties and creating the perfect glass extension
  • £1000 off a new glazed extension
