5 Reasons Why You Should Invest In A Conservatory

It is difficult not to feel a tinge of envy when you observe a nearby neighbour relaxing in their conservatory.

You may have long coveted something similar for your residence, and with spring approaching there’s no better time to take the plunge and turn your dream into a reality.

Seeking justification for such a lavish investment? We have come up with 5 reasons why it’s definitely worth splashing out on a conservatory.

  1. Cheaper and less inconvenient than moving home

A hefty deposit, mortgage fees, stamp duty, legal costs, removal firm fees. These are just some of the financial obligations you may need to satisfy in order to purchase a brand new property. Exchanging homes may also require you to move away from close friends and family, something you may be doing with a very heavy heart.

If your reasoning for moving is because you desperately need more space, then consider a conservatory installation. Buying a conservatory costs significantly less than relocating and the immense interior will compensate for any prior shortage of space.

  1. It will make your home more sellable

When placing your home on the open market it should be advertised with a list of key selling points to hopefully make it appeal to buyers. Research has consistently found that buyers are drawn towards houses possessing a conservatory, so it could help you secure a sale.

A quality conservatory installation has also been shown to increase the resale value of many properties.

For instance, a conservatory costing between £4,000 and £10,000 could increase value by five per cent – an average of around £15,000 (source: The Telegraph).

  1. They offer multiple functionality

The modern conservatory offers various possibilities in terms of how you can utilise the space. Here are 3 examples:

  • Families who love chewing the fat over a sumptuous Sunday lunch could have it transformed into a sophisticated dining area.
  • Technological advances have made it easier for people to ditch the daily office commute and work from home, so why not have your conservatory act as a home office.
  • Eager to keep fit but unable to afford gym membership? Stay in shape by regularly working out in the conservatory.
  1. Closes the gap between home and garden

During the winter months we pay less attention to our gardens and you can become somewhat distant from it when cooped up indoors trying to keep warm.

A conservatory can almost act as the middleman between your home and garden, uniting them together like nothing else, almost bringing the garden into the heart of the home. To blur the gap further, integrate French, patio or bi-folding doors into the structure to create a pathway that you can utilise whenever you want to exchange your home for the garden in the summer.

  1. An energy efficient extension

There is a misconception amongst some that conservatories become unbearably hot in summer and freezing cold in winter. Whilst this may have been true in the past, the modern-day conservatory supplies exceptional energy efficiency throughout the seasons.

The glass, frames and conservatory roof are capable of dealing with extreme conditions so that the interior remains cool or warm dependant on the time of year.
