6 Reasons Why You Should Invest In A Conservatory

In recent years it has become fashionable to expand living space with a conservatory in preference of moving to a larger property.

Some choose to do this because they don’t have the necessary finances needed to relocate, whilst others opt for a home extension as they love the unique atmosphere and surroundings that it provides.

You may be contemplating following suit and having your own conservatory fitted at home. We applaud your decision if you do as a conservatory will prove beneficial in at least six different ways:

  1. More cost effective than relocating

As we’ve mentioned previously, some opt for a conservatory as they cannot afford the many fees associated with moving elsewhere – deposits, mortgage costs, stamp duty, legal costs, removal costs.

A conservatory costs a fraction of the cost of relocating.

  1. Adds value to your home

When a conservatory design complements the architectural styling of your residence and almost looks as though it is a natural extension of the house, it will normally increase the valuation of the property by at least around 5 per cent.

It may also make your home more appealing to buyers if you ever decide to put the property up for sale.

  1. A multi-purpose space

You can utilise a conservatory however best suits you. We have come up with some examples of its multi-purposefulness:

  • Why not host the weekly Sunday dinner inside its confines as it can be transformed into the most luxurious dining spot.
  • Regular homeworkers will find their productivity levels rise when they use their conservatory as a work base due to the peace and tranquillity of the space.
  • Keep in shape without paying a fortune for gym membership. Just buy some gym equipment and workout indoors.
  1. Brings home and garden closer

Your garden will be the centre of attention throughout the summer so it only natural to want to embrace it as much as possible.

Adding a conservatory onto your home will unite the two areas and when you integrate patio, French or bi-folding doors to the structure, you will have the option of creating a gorgeous gateway into the garden.

  1. Energy efficient

Traditional conservatories often provide insufficient thermal efficiency causing them to feel incredibly cold in winter and stifling hot in summer.

Contemporary conservatories are the complete opposite as they incorporate energy efficient glazing, frames and a thermally efficient roofing system. This means that you can enjoy exceedingly comfy extended living throughout the year.

  1. Draws in natural light

With so much glass included in a conservatory design it is inevitable that lots of natural light will flood in.

Natural light is renowned for making rooms feel deceptively more spacious and most conservatories are generously spacious anyway.
