Is A Conservatory Right For My Home?
It’s a big decision to add a conservatory to your home. Let’s take a look at some of the reasons for investing in a conservatory – and bust some of the myths around them.
A conservatory is a practical addition to a home
A conservatory provides the answer to a common problem – the need for more living space.
A conservatory is a flexible and accommodating space that can be anything you want it to be. Dining space. Living room. Office. Home gym. The possibilities are endless. If your home is short of downstairs space, a conservatory fills the gap perfectly.
A conservatory is a great addition to your lifestyle
A conservatory isn’t just a practical addition to your home. It’s also a beautiful one that will make your home an even better place to be.
Who doesn’t like the idea of leisurely weekend breakfasts in a sunny, light-filled room? What could be better than relaxing with friends over a glass of wine in an elegant room, watching the sun go down? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to enjoy your garden even when it’s chilly outside?
A conservatory involves less upheaval than an extension
Then there’s the ease of a conservatory.
A conservatory is quick to build – you’ll usually have a new room in a matter of days. If you choose Majestic Designs to build your conservatory, you can also be sure of professional, courteous installers who will respect you and your home.
On the other hand, an extension could take weeks or months.
Then there’s the cost. A conservatory is very likely to be cheaper than a traditional brick-built extension, which is great news if you’re on a tight budget.
Don’t be put off by old stereotypes
It’s easy to see the appeal of a conservatory. But you may be wondering if the stereotypes are true. We’ve all heard the stories about a room that’s too hot to use in summer or one that’s too cold in winter.
It’s certainly true that conservatories of the past suffered these problems. But today’s conservatories are very different. Advances in the energy efficiency of double glazing and conservatory roofing have made all the difference. It’s one of the reasons the conservatory market is growing at the moment.
(Incidentally, if you are a homeowner with a problem conservatory, please come and talk to us. There are lots of products on the market these days specifically designed to overcome the issues.)
Don’t think a conservatory is a standard white box
In the same way as older conservatories can be too hot or too cold, they can also be a bit identikit – standard white boxes at the back of a house.
Today’s conservatories are very different. You can choose coloured frames, bifold doors and a choice of roofing products to create a very modern living space. Features such as self-cleaning glass mean you won’t have to worry about everyday maintenance, so you’ll always have a beautiful space that enhances your home.
Your conservatory will also be designed specifically for your home. There are standard conservatory shapes – lean-to conservatories, Edwardian conservatories, Victorian conservatories and Gable conservatories. But these are just the starting points. We’ll work closely with you to design a room that’s exactly how you want it.
