Building a conservatory has been named as one of the most desirable ways for Brits to improve their home in order to keep up with the Joness, according to a new study.
The survey, carried out by Opinion Matters has revealed that the economic climate has prevented a quarter of people from making home improvements. However, if people are going to spend any money it has been revealed that they would be likely to buy a conservatory or invest in a loft conversion in order to keep up with the Joness.
With the properties being valued at much lower rates, it could be suggested that a conservatory is a good way to add value and additional space to your home. As most conservatories dont need planning permission, they are usually easier to plan than extensions and the process can be completed in around a week. This ensures that there is minimum disruption to your home whilst the process is taking place.
Here are the benefits of investing in a conservatory:
Adding value to your home
As the property industry has been struggling for the past few years, people are reluctant to move and are investing more money in to their existing homes. The costs for moving house can be quite high when you have included costs for removals; therefore, a conservatory could save you money and will create extra space in your home.
A bright, new, well-build conservatory is a great asset and will encourage potential buyers if you ever consider selling your property. Conservatories are also a great way make your home appear bigger in size, as the open plan windows will create the illusion that your rooms have been extended.
Depending on the space you have available, there are many designs that can be customised to suit the needs of your home. Whether you are looking for a three facet Venetian or Victorian style, conservatories can usually be built to suit the look of your home whilst utilising all your free space.
Conservatories are also useful as they can be used for storage purposes, or can be left minimalistic so theres a place for you to relax and unwind. This extra space could also be used as a room to entertain guests, allowing you to keep your living and dining room as private space. Having a conservatory situated by the garden is also a lovely way for budding gardeners to view their work, as you can sit in your conservatory and appreciate your garden whatever the weather.
If you have children, they can enjoy playing in the conservatory with the feeling that they are outside if you need to keep an eye on them!
After a stressful day at work theres nothing better than having your own personal space that will allow you to relax, watch TV, read a book or have a catch up with friends.
How to maintain your conservatory
If your thinking of investing in a conservatory its wise to insulate your conservatory roof as you may find that its hard to get the temperature right. By insulating the roof you can control the temperature and ensure that its never too hot or cold.
