I am hoping to extend my Victorian home at the rear. Would a sleek, glazed addition complement the period architecture of my house?

    Rebecca Clayton from IQ Glass says:

    'This is a popular solution to extending Victorian properties, especially terraces. There are various options to consider, from a fully glazed glass box to an extension with a solid roof with frameless rooflights and a minimal door system. If you opt for a fully glazed glass box use low iron glass as these units, not supported by framework, need to be a thicker glass composition and this can cause the glass to look slightly green. Low iron glass removes this greening look.

    A minimalist look contrasts well with period houses so keep all framing as slim as possible. Aluminium-frame sliding doors are usually the thinnest solutions.'
