Our Top Alternative Uses for a Conservatory
More than a garden room
The current lockdown across the UK means that we are all spending more time at home. Many families are wishing they had a little extra space, especially when adjusting to working from home whilst home-schooling the kids all from a cramped kitchen table.
If you are looking for a cost-effective way to add an extra room to your house, then consider a conservatory.
Modern heating and glass technology mean that conservatories have evolved from being a room you can only use in the summer months into a light and airy space that can be utilised all year round.
Traditionally conservatories have been used as a garden room, a place to curl up with a book and enjoy the sunshine, but there are many other practical ways you can use the extra space.
Here’s a few ideas to help utilise your conservatory space:
Ideal home office
Working from home has become the ‘new normal’ for millions of UK employees. Having a sanctuary away from the rest of the household during conference calls is crucial to remaining productive. A conservatory is the ideal solution for home-workers looking for a quite environment in which to concentrate.
By choosing a structure with layers of insulation within a solid roof, which helps to keep the heat out in the summer and the warmth in during colder months, your office will be a welcoming place to work all year round.
Enjoy a games room or playroom
If you already have a study, an alternative use for a conservatory is a games room. It’ll be a sure-fire hit with teenagers, giving them a den in which to play their games consoles, set up a small pool table or spread out a jigsaw without taking over the main dining table.
For younger children, a conservatory provides a perfect playroom in which to store and enjoy their toys. And at bedtime you can simply shut the doors on any untidiness leaving other areas of the house clutter-free to relax in.
Soak up the sun
Thanks to The Great British Weather our summers can be very unpredictable. Spending time outdoors is beneficial to our health and wellbeing, but often the weather is a little too fresh to be in the garden.
A sun room will make the most of a bright, cool day without the need to go outside. Your sun room can be constructed with walls of glass, which allows sun to flood the room even on crisp, clear winter mornings. And during rainy days you can still relax and enjoy a warm and cosy environment, thanks to the energy-efficient materials we use, while the rain falls around you.
Extend your kitchen
The kitchen is the heart of many homes. But if your kitchen is lacking storage or doesn’t provide the space to seat a growing family at mealtimes, it might be time to consider a cost-effective way to extend your kitchen area.
A conservatory can provide a welcome extension to your existing kitchen and increase your available space whilst making it lighter, brighter and a homely place to be.
Consider a conservatory…
There is no other room in your house that could offer additional space so quickly and cost-effectively. Conservatories provide warmth and are energy-efficient too. Recent research also shows that the addition of a conservatory can add up to 5% onto the value of your home, making it a sound investment for the future.
