You love your home. Your neighbourhood is friendly and safe and the location is perfect. There’s only one problem: space.
Moving home for many people tends to be low on the agenda when all the other boxes are ticked and they are happy where they are living. Not only is moving expensive, the upheaval is not attractive either. But what to do if you just don’t have sufficient space?
Home Improvements – Add space & value
There are lots of reasons homeowners crave more space. The family may have expanded; teenagers are demanding their freedom; a new hobby could have taken over the spare room or you may simply be looking for a peaceful haven where you can hole yourself up away from the hustle and bustle of busy family life.
A home extension is of course one option, but budgets do not always allow such a luxury and it is not always desirable to go through the whole planning and Building Regulations process when this is called for. So, what is the answer? Is there a compromise? Yes, there is!
A conservatory can offer the perfect solution to add space to a home, and is often a great deal less expensive and more straightforward than building an extension. Let’s take a look at more reasons why homeowners so often make the decision to add a conservatory to their properties.
It is a well-known fact that a conservatory can add value to a property. Lots of people find conservatories a desirable addition to a home, so making it more saleable. It is also widely reported that anything between 5 and 15 per cent can be added to the value. Of course, a garden is also a very important factor for home buyers, so you should always be mindful of losing too much of your outside space.
If you are adding a conservatory for the sole reason of adding value, you should always check with a local estate agent first. They will be able to tell you whether your investment will be worthwhile in today’s market.
There is a huge range of conservatory styles ranging from traditional brick-based orangeries to floor-to-ceiling glass structures that provide indoor space whilst appearing almost invisible on the outside.
In other words, whatever your personal taste; whichever style of property you live in, there will always be a style that blends in seamlessly and fits in with what you love.
A Window to the World
Or, at least, a window to your garden. The phrase, ‘bringing the outdoors in’ is perhaps a little over-used these days, but it doesn’t detract from the fact that everyone adores a smooth transition between their indoor entertaining or relaxation space, and their garden.
Imagine a sunny winter’s day. It may be chilly outside, but sat in your conservatory the sun streaming through all that glass is keeping you toasty and warm as you indulge in your latest read. Instead of feeling closed in, you are gazing out at the blue sky, the evergreens and the birds. Compared to extensions, conservatories do the best job of linking the outdoors with the indoors. For this reason, they really do provide the ideal relaxation and entertaining environment.
So Many Uses
Conservatories really do have so many uses. From dining areas flooded with natural light that extend in the warmer months out onto a deck or patio, to a cosy family room where everyone congregates to watch TV or chat about their day; from an inspirational office space to a youngsters’ den, there really is no limit when it comes to how to use your conservatory.
