Planning a conservatory?
When planning a conservatory you need to get the size right
Getting the proportions of your conservatory to suit the size of your house is an important factor and should be the first consideration you should make before buying a conservatory. Having a large conservatory fitted to a tiny terrace house will be ill suited, if the conservatory out sizes the original building.
Whilst planning the size of your new conservatory think about how much garden space you are going to be left with, you don’t want to lose the pleasure of enjoying your outdoor space. Also consider if other houses around you have much larger gardens after your conservatory is fitted, this may put future buyers off your property if you decide to sell. So make sure the size of conservatory is appropriate for the size of house and the garden you own.
Before buying it’s also a good idea to mark out the area your conservatory will occupy as a visual check on its effect on your home and garden. Our sales team can help you with this and advise you what size and style conservatory will best suit your home.
The next consideration will be what you are going to use the conservatory for. Below is just a small example of ideas that our customers used their conservatory for:
- Breakfast room
- Dining room
- Another living space
- Home office
- Home run business: beauty therapist, consultant or other small business.
- Children’s room
Once you have decided on the way you are going to use your conservatory you can think about the furnishing you are going to need. Our sales representative will be able to provide the internal floor measurements and then you will be able to work out how much room you have for tables, sofas, chairs and other furniture you want to use.
It’s now worth thinking about other fixtures and fittings such as flooring, blinds, lighting, heating, fans, window furniture and the glazing options. You can find additional information about these features on our website. These finishing touches are what make your conservatory unique and personal to you. Again our sales advisors will be able to advise you on these matters.
