A conservatory is one of the most popular home improvements that extends your space with an impressive new room. Conservatories give you the opportunity to create a modern and stylish space that can be used for whatever you please.
We’ve compiled a list of the most attractive benefits homeowners will receive after deciding to invest in a conservatory as opposed to moving home.
Adding a conservatory is more cost effective than moving home
If you need more space or another room, adding a conservatory will be far more cost-effective than moving house. Adding a conservatory is far less complicated, less time consuming and will ultimately increase the value of your home so that when the time comes and you do decide to move, you will get a great return on investment.
Create more space for your family with a conservatory
If you and your family require more living space, adding a conservatory is a brilliant way to make this possible. Modern conservatories are extremely versatile and secure, and you can use them for almost anything you like. A conservatory can serve as an office space, a dining room, an extra living room, a children’s playroom or whatever else you can think of.
A conservatory provides better natural light
Conservatories, being largely composed of glass, flood themselves with natural light. Even if you opt for a conservatory with a tiled roof, as opposed to a glass roof, you will still enjoy a room that basks in natural light thanks to the amount of glass that makes up the rest of the conservatory extension.
Natural light in the home means that you can rely less on using electricity to light up your space and you’ll also save money on your heating bills because the natural sunlight will keep your conservatory nice and warm. Contrary to popular belief, however, you do not need to worry about your modern conservatory getting too hot. Modern innovations and contemporary materials mean that the too hot in summer and too cold in winter scenario can be a thing of the past. Check out these different conservatory roof types and find the ideal one for your home.
It has also been scientifically proven that natural daylight helps our bodies to produce vitamin D, also known as the “sunshine” vitamin. Good levels of vitamin D improves our sleep patterns and productivity as well as reducing stress levels. Investing in a conservatory may improve your quality of life in ways you never expected!
A conservatory will add value to your home
By adding an extra room to your home, you will increase its desirability to potential buyers. More affordable and less hassle than a traditional extension, you could add value to your home at minimal cost to you. A well-built, modern conservatory could increase your home's value by at least 5%.
A conservatory brings the house and the garden together
Conservatories are ideal for allowing you to enjoy the beauty of your garden in complete comfort all year round. It’s no secret that the British weather can be somewhat unpredictable, and it’s not always possible to sit out in our gardens due to the wind and rain. Having a conservatory creates a space that feels open and allows us to enjoy views of the garden in complete comfort no matter the weather.
Modern conservatories are energy efficient
High-quality uPVC and aluminium framed conservatories nowadays come available in a choice of high performance energy efficient glass, solar control glass or polycarbonate options. Whichever option is chosen, homeowners across are able to use their conservatory all year round without worrying about energy efficiency.
Conservatories are aesthetically pleasing
One really simple benefit of adding a conservatory to your home is that it is aesthetically impressive. Our homes are where a lot of us, and our families, spend the majority of our time and they’re arguably the biggest purchase a lot of people make in their lifetime. Investing in making your home look and feel better is never a wasted exercise.
A new conservatory will create an interior ambience
As well as creating a more aesthetically pleasing home from the outside, a new conservatory can create a whole new interior ambience which is guaranteed to make spending time at home more enjoyable and comfortable. Here are some ways you can furnish your conservatory to create a cosy feel to that extra space:
- How you decide to decorate your conservatory comes down to personal choice, however, light and airy pastel or neutral colours work well as they create an almost seamless transition between your conservatory and the outside world.
- Incorporating some indoor plants also adds some character to your conservatory and creates that continuous indoors-outdoors room feel as they blend in with the garden greenery on the other side of the glass.
- Most people will opt for some form of practical hard flooring, such as laminate or tiles, for their conservatory so adding a rug is a great way to add comfort to your new space. Rugs can elongate conservatories, add character and become a focal point. A large rug will act as a thermal insulator adding warmth and a sense of homeliness.
