Investing in a conservatory for your home is a fantastic move which, while giving you the benefits of; extra space, an aesthetically pleasing look to your home, a bespoke solution to your home’s shortcomings, etc, also acts as a major investment into the development and value of your home. Leaving the bulk of the work to qualified professionals such as our team at Heat Save UK guarantees a high-quality functional build to stand the test of the capricious English weather. When looking to invest in a conservatory there are several key elements that need to be kept in mind in order to maximise on practicality in line with the needs of the homeowner, read on to learn more about these elements.
Use of the Conservatory
There are instances in which you may find yourself unsure of what to use your conservatory for (please see our blog on “best ways to use your conservatory”) looking to instead capitalise on the increase in value that it provides rather than having a distinct plan on its use. There is nothing wrong with this but to simply keep the space empty is a bit of a waste, try to think about the things your home may be lacking and how you may be able to incorporate them via the conservatory.
Tying in closely with usage is the consideration for conservatory insulation, depending on the nature of what the conservatory will be used for an insulation may come with different levels of necessity. If your conservatory is in regular use for a space such as a kitchen, a dining room, or an office, insulation is vital especially during the more extreme months.
Every home is different and thus so is every conservatory, the positioning of your home may prevent you from making use of certain builds or limit your dimensions in turn mitigating its functionality. This is why it’s absolutely vital to consider the placement of the build and how the space available would impact your plans for the inside. As is the case with many homes, the best place to place the conservatory is at the back of the house leading into the back garden where space is more readily available than it may be at the side or front. You may also find that if your conservatory is of a certain size (usually more than one storey or more than 50% of the land around the house is going to be covered) you may require planning permission, if you’re unsure about this – get in contact with our experts at Heat Save UK at 024 7704 3783 or through our contact us form.
There is a lot of variety in the conservatory market and due to its bespoke nature, finding the perfect build for you is no longer just a dream.
