A conservatory is simply an extension that makes your home bigger in a much easier way. They’re a cost-effective option in comparison to moving house or having a conversion; also the design of a conservatory is fully flexible to your ideas.


A conservatory extends your living area and you can choose to make it into any additional room; whether it’s a dining area, a study or even a reading room. Maybe you just want a room where you can spend some peaceful family time - the possibilities are endless and they're all up to you.


Create a bespoke living space


Not only does a conservatory add another practical room, it also adds extended value to your property as well- they’re even an excellent selling point to buyers as they provide additional space and can help make a house look bigger. Another popular aspect would be the fact that conservatories are very open, so the relaxing natural light is only going to entice you more.


Conservatories aren’t just for the summer, they make a great impact on your life forever. People fall into the trap of thinking that you can only use a conservatory when the weather is nice but that’s not the case. You can get an electric heaters installed or invest in a warm roof to further sustain heat inside of your conservatory. 


Energy saving conservatories? 


Insulation in a conservatory is the way of preventing heat from escaping from the room and is essential for your conservatory if you wish to use it even during winter. You, at home can also help to reduce the cold by buying draft excluders and/or installing heavy curtains. You should always check the quality of the sealing in the windows- PVCu is very popular as it’s a very strong sealant for windows. Another way to keep your conservatory insulated is by upgrading the flooring, this is aspect strongly affects the way in which the conservatory is insulated and is something we take for granted everyday. Concrete flooring absorbs a lot of thermal energy, if you use tiles then using tiles with a higher PEI rating would perform more efficiently, wood flooring and carpets are also better as well.


Conservatories are great when it comes to bringing the outdoors inside, you can open the windows and doors and it brings the room to life (especially in the summer). Solar roofs are very popular where conservatories are concerned- this not only makes the conservatory energy efficient and saves you money, it will minimise the heat escaping and blocks the harmful rays that you can be exposed to through having a conservatory. Not to mention it will help protect your furniture.
