If you’re looking for more space, a play area for your children, somewhere to put your dining table or an indoor area from which to enjoy your garden, a conservatory may be just what you’re looking for.
Adding a conservatory to your home can also be a relatively low cost, hassle-free way to extend your living area and can reap a good return in terms of adding value to your home. There are a number of things you need to think about when you’re planning your conservatory.
For a start, give careful thought to how the conservatory will alter the look of your house. Do you want an Edwardian or Victorian style conservatory, or would something more contemporary be more fitting as an addition to your home? There are a lot of conservatory companies on the market, so do ask friends and neighbours for referrals. When deciding which company to employ, make sure you’re happy with guarantees, costs, timescales and after-sales service levels. Equally, if you’re planning on building it yourself, check out all the DIY options as there is a vast range of self-build products available. Most importantly, be realistic about your DIY ability – it can be an expensive option to employ professional help to finish what you’ve started.
Finally, don’t forget to factor into your budget the cost of furnishing it once it’s built!
- Do your homework – make sure you’re completely happy with the style of conservatory you choose, the company building it, or your chosen DIY option.
- Check with your local planning authority and building control department that you can build without special permission.
- Think about how you’ll finance your project and remember you’ll need to buy blinds and furnishings once it’s finished.
