Why buy a Conservatory?

In the current economy you’d think that less people would be improving their home, but in fact the opposite is true.

Why you may ask?

Well, even though the recession is currently in full force, the property market has also been devalued considerably. This means that instead of looking at trying to sell, home owners are looking to improve what they have – either for personal use, or to improve their home so they can then manage to sell.

So here at Orion Windows despite the recession, sales are doing well. We still get a very regular string of leads and take every care to meet the wants and needs of every customer as an individual. We provide the best serve for Conservatories in Yorkshire

There was an article in the Telegraph recently, speaking about this subject. The article states “Homeowners are spending an average of £5,300 on improving their homes rather than risk exposing themselves to the struggling property market, according to research.”


The research goes on to say that fitting new bathrooms and kitchens top the list for areas home improvement, this is not at all surprising as they are key areas to every home. The average price for having a new kitchen however weighed in at £6,300. Some loose change, this is not, and it comes as a major investment.

It seems that people desire change. It is in our nature to want something new – adding Conservatories to properties seems to be a very popular and well thought out option at the moment.

It is believed that adding more space to a property in the form of a conservatory or orangery has the ability to add around £20,000 or more to the value of a property. So in the scheme of things this is a much better option than adding a kitchen or bathroom as a conservatory will add a lot more value to your home.
