10 reasons to consider a new conservatory

With many of us looking forward to the joys of spring, it's natural to think about home improvements and how you could improve light and space in your home.

One of the most popular home improvements as we move into spring is, in fact, a conservatory. Here are 10 reasons why having a conservatory could just be the home improvement you are looking for.


1- Value - One of the main benefits of carrying out any home improvements is, of course, adding value to your home. Though it can be difficult to give an exact percentage of what a conservatory might add in value, making any significant home improvements is set to help the overall value of your home. Speak to a local estate agent for more information.

2- Extra space - As the family grows, so does your space requirements, so gaining extra living space is often welcomed. Today's conservatories are designed with the latest technology in mind, meaning an energy-efficient warm conservatory can be used for many different purposes.

3- Extra bedroom- The traditional use for a conservatory has typically always been extra lounging space, being able to take advantage of sunny days, even if it is a little chilly outside. Today's modern living means that the conservatory can now be used for a multitude of purposes, including an additional bedroom. A room with its own access, may just be the extra bedroom your family need.

4- Extension alternative- An alternative to traditional brick or timber-built extensions is, in fact, a conservatory. With so many choices now, including integrated lighting, speakers and energy-efficient roofing systems, a conservatory might just be the quirky addition your home needs.

5- Variety- A bespoke design means tailoring your new conservatory to your family's specific needs. With options such as the new 'Livinroom' design, you could add a whole new dynamic to your living space.

6- Garden and home connection - Connecting your home space to your garden space - your new conservatory offers that midway space that can be used for a multitude of purposes. Not quite shed material, but not designed to go in the house either? This is when your conservatory comes into its own.

7- Bringing the outdoors in - Bringing the outdoors in without the chill from the outside air is something we all strive to achieve in our homes. Being able to relax in a warm and cosy environment, whilst having near uninterrupted views of your freshly mowed garden, is every homeowner's dream.

8- Guarantee - Many conservatories come with the security of a guarantee often lasting up to 10 years, meaning you can enjoy your new home addition with complete peace of mind.

9- Perfect party pad- Perfect for summer barbecues and parties, a conservatory offers that extra semi-outdoor entertaining space that you could use for entertaining guests.

10- Everyday escape- With today's modern stresses, taking some time out to read, sleep or drink a cuppa can be very rewarding. A conservatory offers a year-round warm, light and peaceful ambiance where you can escape from everyday stresses and relax.
