Conservatories can be an invaluable asset to your house if you use them in the right way. They can be an amazing space to relax and unwind after a long day as well as host guests and soak up the sun whilst protected from the wind. They are also a great way to extend your space and add a layer of functionality to your home. However, there are several things you need to consider before investing in a conservatory structure. We’ve compiled a list of all the things to think about when researching your conservatory.

Location is Key


This is arguably the most important thing you need to think about when it comes to your conservatory. Typically, you will find conservatories located towards the rear of the house, perhaps going into the back garden. While this is often the most suitable option so that you can make the most of your picturesque back garden, there’s no hard and fast rule saying it must be this way. In fact, it may be that your conservatory would be best suited to the front, or even the side, of your house. Remember to confer with your local council to check whether or not you require planning permission before going ahead with the building process.

Matchy Matchy

There’s not much point in having a stylish conservatory if it sticks out like a sore thumb. When designing your structure, you need to make sure that it looks cohesive with the rest of your architecture. Conservatories can come in a huge range of different styles, from Victorian and Georgian designs to more modern types.

Feeling Hot Hot Hot

As mentioned above, we want to make sure your conservatory serves as a functional space. This means it should be suitable for year-round use, come rain, snow or heatwave. Conservatories have somewhat of a reputation for being too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. Thanks to modern technology, this problem is a thing of the past. It is highly beneficial to talk to your conservatory installer to see what they suggest in terms of heating and ventilation systems. It may serve you to consider insulating roof tiles to help you keep warm in the winter and perhaps blinds to keep out the heat in the midst of summer.

A Functional Space For You and the Family

The benefits of having a conservatory in your home are pretty much endless. If you find yourself wishing you had somewhere to escape from the chaos of the house, or perhaps you’d like somewhere to work on your hobbies, a stylish conservatory could be the perfect addition to your home.
