Conservatories, The Perfect Addition To Your Home

Apr 19, 2008
When you have brought your dream home and got it looking ideal many of us start to look at ways of expending what we have already got to make it even better. There are numerous ways that this can be achieved such as a loft conversion or a barn conversion or even extending over a garage to create an extra room but if you are looking for a more simple way of giving you and your family that little bit extra then why not invest in a conservatory?

A conservatory can do a lot for your property such as giving you an extra room. It can create the extra space that your home could be bursting for or you could choose to use it in a more unusual way. Whatever you have in mind there are certain tings that need to be decided on before you make any building plans.

The main and first consideration that you need to thoroughly think through when it comes to the decision of a conservatory is what you want your conservatory for. There are so many options open to you when it comes to this decision. Some of the most common uses of a conservatory includes:

* A playroom
* A dinning room
* Office space
* Second living room, no more arguments about the TV!
* A room for your teenager and their friends to hang out in
* Or as an extension to your garden

Many people however decide on a more unusual purpose for their conservatory such as a swimming pool, a games room where they can keep a pool table or a poker table or maybe you are planning to install your own bar to entertain guests. The list of possibilities really is endless but remember the size, layout and style as well as the materials that will be used are all based on what you intend to use your conservatory for.

To get the best from your conservatory it is important that you take the time to find the best building company to construct your conservatory. You should get quotes and shop around to find the best deal. However remember you get what you pay for so don't just decide to go for the cheapest.

When deciding on your conservatory you should choose your material wisely but be aware when doing so as the material you choose can affect the lifespan, practically and usage of your conservatory. You should ensure that the material that you choose should be easy to maintain and clean. PVC frames are the best option along with a stone or brick base. When choosing the base of your conservatory you should choose one that is an exact or a very close match to the stone/brick that is used on your property.

If your conservatory is going to be south facing it means that it will be exposed to more sun in which case you need to provide adequate ventilation with a good choice of blinds for your window.

Your conservatory should compliment your house and shouldn't take up a large amount of space in order for it to look the best; remember it acts as an addition to your house rather than a 'bolt-on.'

Within the UK you don't generally need planning permission to build a conservatory, however it is always advised to check.
