Most of us dream of having a conservatory for one very important reason; to create extra space for our families to relax in. For homes that are often quite hectic or perhaps not as spacious as you’d like, a conservatory could provide another crucial room to use for whatever you would like!
We all have a picture of what our dream house looks like, and if yours includes a conservatory then you’ll want to make sure you build the perfect one to get the most out of it. Whether you are thinking of having a conservatory built, or you already have one and want to make sure you’re using it to its full potential, here are just a few tips to help from Phil Coppell Limited.
The purpose and size of your conservatory
Traditionally, conservatories are used as a second living area, complete with a seating area for families to relax. However, thanks to cold weather our conservatories are often left to collect dust and we don’t use them nearly half as much as we should.
It’s important to have an idea of what you want to use the conservatory for, before you build it. This way, you may be more inclined to use it regularly. Your conservatory could end up being the room that your home has missing all along, whether it’s a kitchen extension or even an office. With the right design, a conservatory is a room that can be used all year round.
The size and shape of your conservatory can be a vital part of how you use it. With so much choice, you should take the time to carry out research into the various shapes. It doesn’t matter whether you live in a bungalow, a terraced house or a large detached home, there’s a design for everyone.
Enhancing your conservatory
Having a conservatory is great, but what if you could make it so much more than that? You have the option to enhance the space through a number of different additions, improving the room even further to make sure it fits in perfectly with your lifestyle.
While having a conservatory is incredibly useful, you could take it a step further and add the likes of bi-folding doors. This can provide even more space and light for the room, which is particularly great in the summer. However, thanks to their energy efficient properties, they’ll still look spectacular in the winter.
Likewise, having your conservatory built with a solid tile roof could transform the space like you’d never believe. Making sure the conservatory is a comfortable temperature all year round, you never have to close the doors on it during the winter ever again!
Decorating your conservatory
Once your conservatory has been built, it’s important to put your own personal touch on it. Decorating your conservatory is the fun part! How you decorate your conservatory could make a big difference to the room itself, and you might want to consider tactics to maximise the available space and light. For example, mirrors and light colours can give the impression that the room is bigger.
